“People on the side of ‘The People’ always ended up disappointed, in any case.  They found that ‘The People’ tended not to be grateful or appreciative or forward-thinking or obedient.  The People tended to be small-minded and conservative and not very clever and were even distrustful of cleverness.  And so the children of the revolution were faced with the age-old problem: it wasn’t that you had the wrong kind of government, which was obvious, but that you had the wrong kind of people.”- Terry Pratchett
