"Fascism is a more natural governmental . . ."

Sun Magazine has a series of quotes, called Sunbeams, at the end of each issue.  January's were related to democracy.   Here are a few.  You can see them all here.  They are worth thinking about these days.
"Fascism is a more natural governmental condition than democracy. Democracy is a grace. It’s something essentially splendid because it’s not at all routine or automatic. Fascism goes back to our infancy and childhood, where we were always told how to live."
Norman Mailer
"The most important political office is that of private citizen."
Louis Brandeis

"You lose a lot of time, hating people."
Marian Anderson

"The enemy isn’t conservatism. The enemy isn’t liberalism. The enemy is bullshit."
Lars-Erik Nelson

I've linked the people quoted, lest someone not know who they are.  (There's one I didn't know.)
