The Soul of Democracy

December 22, 2017 @ 10:18 am | Filed under: Quotes from this week's reading

“Honest and earnest criticism from those whose interests are most nearly touched—criticism of writers by readers, of government by those governed, of leaders by those led—this is the soul of democracy and the safeguard of modern society.”
 
― W.E.B. Du Bois

  2. Indeed. Now more than ever, methinks.

  3. Yes and yes! Thank you Lissa.

    {{hugs}} and prayers my friend
