The major problem—one of the major problems, for there are several—one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.
To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it.
To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.”
? Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Half of the American people have never read a newspaper. Half never voted for President. One hopes it is the same half.”
? Gore Vidal, Screening History

In a society governed passively by free markets and free elections, organized greed always defeats disorganized democracy.”
? Matt Taibbi, Griftopia: Bubble Machines, Vampire Squids, and the Long Con That Is Breaking America

It's been my opinion for a while now that anyone who lusts after power enough to run for political office in this country should probably be forced into therapy and a prolonged regimen of psychoactive drugs to get their mind right. It doesn't appear any longer to be about service to the people or to the country but to become a lord and rule and oppress the proletariat and become filthy rich in the process.
But that's just, like, my opinion, man.

That's the core problem here in Italy too, maybe everywhere.

Democracy can exists where nobody is so rich he can buy someone else, and nobody is so poor to sell himself. -Rousseau
