“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.” Alexander Fraser Tytler, 18th century lawyer and writer, quoted by Cal Thomas, Tribune Content Agency, Lincoln Journal Star, April 1, 2020
