Two Thoughts. Of Politicians. Of Political Representation.

1. The republic’s politicians always turn out to be liars because the public prefers not to know what it desires. If a politician were honest and reflected the demands of the public back upon itself—that is, if he were a representative through and through—then he would be called a “threat to liberty” and accused of the most tyrannical, vicious ambitions.

2. The politician who thinks freely would eventually be accused of violating or encroaching upon the freedom of the public.
