Requisito mínimo para se ter democracia

“Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.” — James Bovard’s 1994 book Lost Rights: The Destruction of American Liberty (Conclusion, p 333). The origin of this saying is not known; earlier versions appeared on the Internet.
          An improved version:
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.
