Why we’re all really republicans

“Democracy is something America has never really practiced. Because the Founding Fathers hated two things: monarchy and democracy. They wanted a republic, a replica of the Roman or Venetian republics. They didn’t even like the etymology of the word ‘democracy.’” – Gore Vidal (quoted by Lila Azam Zanganeh in “The End of Gore Vidal”)
