#ThomasJefferson on ultimate powers

“I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers
of society but the people themselves, and if we think them
not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a
wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from
them, but to inform their discretion by education.”
—Thomas Jefferson
