In Memory of Eric Voegelin: Politics In Service of Faith

“When impetuous young men are repelled by the vulgarity of democracy, Plato can point out to them that energy, pride, and will to rule can indeed establish the despotism of a spiritually corrupt elite, but not a just government; and when democrats rave about freedom and equality and forget that government requires spiritual training and intellectual discipline, he can warn them that they are on they way to tyranny.”  Collected Works of Eric Voegelin University of Missouri Press 2008
