"A republic, if you can keep it"

"[D]emocracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and
contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal
security, or the rights of property; and have, in general, been
as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths."

-- James Madison (Federalist No. 10, 23 November 1787)
