"... all the factors of public life speak and struggle in the name of the people, of. the community at large. The government and rebels against the government, kings and the party-leaders, tyrants by the grace of God and usurpers, rabid idealists and calculating self-seekers, all are ?the people,? and all declare that in their actions they merely fulfil the will of the nation."
Robert Michels, 1911
Political Parties, pg 16
Some things never change... have never changed, and won't change.
