„People can be deceived by appeals intended to destroy democracy in the name of democracy. Dissenters who believe in the democratic creed may unwittingly advocate or legitimists may insist on preserving rules of the game destined to have unforeseen and unintended consequences disastrous to the stability and perhaps the survival of the democracy.“
— Robert A. Dahl, libro Who Governs?
Who Governs?: Democracy and Power in an American City (1961), p. 325
