Democracy is risk

   The most extraordinarily beautiful
   intelligences in letters we have
   known - the most valuable keepsakes
   of a precarious and sometimes delu-
   sional tradition - nevertheless en-
   gage us to have feeling for each
   other, which possibly only the gods
   could ever muster. And then there
   are the builders, who introduce an-
   other prod to fraternity, letting
   us draw peace from contemplating its
   fruit. How can one decline the risk?
