"Democracy
has
no
more
persistentor
insidious foe than the money power, to whichit may say, as Dante said when he reached inhis journey through Hell the dwelling of the
God of Riches, `Here we found Wealth, the
great enemy
.'
That enemy is formidable
because he works secretly, by persuasion or
deceit, rather than by force, and so takes men
unawares
. He is a danger to good government
everywhere
.
"The truth seems to be that democracy hasonly one marked advantage over other govern-
ments in defending itself against the submarine
warfare which wealth can wage, viz
., Publicity
and the force of Public Opinion
.
So long
as Ministers can be interrogated in an
assembly, so long as the press is free to call
attention to alleged scandals and requireexplanations from persons suspected of an
improper use of money or an improper
submission to its influences, so long will thepeople be at least warned of the dangers thatthreaten them
.
If they refuse to take thewarning they are already untrue to the dutiesthat freedom prescribes
."
-The lateLord Bryce in
"Modern Democracies"
(1921)
