” History by apprising them of the past will enable them to judge of the future; it will avail them of the experience of other times and other nations; it will qualify them as judges of the actions and designs of men; it will enable them to know ambition under every disguise it may assume; and knowing it, to defeat its views.”
“….Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves therefore are its only safe depositories. and render even them safe their minds must be improved to a certain degree… The influence over government must be shared among all the people. If every individual which (sic) composes their mass participates of the ultimate authority, the government will be safe; because the corrupting the whole mass will will exceed any private resources of wealth; and public ones cannot be provided but by levies on the people.” (Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, 1784)
