Television is the first truly democratic culture - the first culture available to everybody and entirely governed by what the people want. The most terrifying thing is what people do want -- Clive Alexander Barnes (b. 1927), British journalist, critic, author

Quote 776

I'm very much an activist. I grew up in Russia during the height of the Cold War, a very restrictive communist society that didn't allow the individual to have a voice. Since moving to this country when I was 10, I've always had this drive to democratise the human voice. Technology is just a tool, and the Internet will be our tool to democratise television - Dmitry Shapiro, Founder and CEO, Veoh Networks Inc., San Diego, California

Democracy is coming to the USA - Leonard Cohen

Democracy is based upon the conviction that there are extraordinary possibilities in ordinary people - Harry Emerson Fosdick
