The burning issue

To speak today of the defence of democracy as if we were defending something which we knew and had possessed for many decades or many centuries is self-deception...
...we should be nearer the mark, and should have a far more convincing slogan, if we spoke of the need, not to defend democracy, but to create it.

E H Carr
