"The fundamental test of a democracy was its capacity to elevate the condition of men, to lift artificial weights from all shoulders, to clear the paths of laudable pursuit for all.

A real democracy would be a mentocracy where those born in the lower ranks could rise as far as their natural talents and discipline might take them".

Abraham Lincoln
