Excerpt from Democracy: Theorestical and Practical

It is,true that people have sometimes controlled their rulers' in the past, and that in the more enlightened coun tries Of the world they have devised political machinery for controlling them more effectively. But there is a vast difference between actual governance and the con trol Of those who govern. (the number Of men in any nation who have the capacity for the administration Of great affairs is very small; the number Of men and women who control them in the exercise Of their powers may be reckoned by hundreds of thousands or millions, according to the size of the State. Yet so loose is the language we use in reference to government that the distinction be tween governing and the control of those who govern is overlooked or ignored. We live in an age Of catch-words and shibboleths, and one Of the most misleading and powerful Of these is government for the people bv the people.
