About this Quote

This quote by Bertrand Russell is a funny yet informative look at the nature of democracy. It suggests that democracy is a system of governance in which individuals are offered the power to pick their leaders, however ultimately, those leaders are the ones who will be held responsible for any errors or failures. This quote highlights the importance of citizens being informed and engaged in the democratic process, as they are the ones who will ultimately choose who will supervise and who will be delegated any problems that arise. It likewise functions as a suggestion that democracy is a system of checks and balances, and that citizens need to understand the power they need to hold their leaders liable.
