Best (Understated) Quote Ever

“In democratic societies, moreover, there exists an urge to do something even when the goal is not precise, a sort of permanent fever that turns to innovation of every kind. And innovations are almost always costly.”

From Alexis de Tocqueville’s Democracy in America (trans. Arthur Goldhammer), h/t Mark L. Levin.
