• The deadliest foe of democracy is not autocracy but liberty frenzied. Liberty is not foolproof. For its beneficent working it demands self-restraint, a sane and clear recognition of the practical and attainable, and of the fact that there are laws of nature which are beyond our power to change.

    Otto Hermann Kahn (1918). “Frenzied liberty: the myth of "a rich man's war"”
