In a previous entry, I wrote about the fact that democracy and the rule of the majority are not the same thing. If you have not already read this fact that is apparently not to the liking of the ignorant and stupid, then please click on the link and read up a bit on the background.

In this post, I wish to expound upon two “classical” philosophical and/or literary concepts that are expressed in phrases. The first of these is a very important one to me.
