“Dishonest men can be bought and ignorant men can be manipulated. This is the kind of government which private capital, invested in public-service industries, naturally feels that it must have.” — Washington Gladden (quoted in The Cambridge History of English and American Literature, Vol. XVII, Ch. XVI, Sec. 12)

    Has it been ever so, Tetman? It feels so much worse these days, with large segments of the middle class bound and determined to vote against their own interests. When did America stop trying?

    I don’t know ever, but it seems often. Or recurring. The quote was from about 100 years ago.
