Alexis de Tocqueville

I have always thought that servitude of the regular, quiet and gentle kind which I have just described might be combined more easily than is commonly believed with some of the outward forms of freedom, and that it might even establish itself under the wing of the sovereignty of the people.

– Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America [1835]
