Democratic Human Sacrifce

“Modernity only believes in the language of equality — we do not mind tyrannies as long as they are draped in the name of the people, all of whom must be formally acknowledged to be equal. The tyrant may actually be engaged in trying to murder all the people, but as long as he bows and scrapes in front of the Temple of Democracy, his position is secure” (Angels in the Architecture, p. 162).
