Last quote by Alexis de Tocqueville

It must be acknowledged that in few of the civilized nations of our time have the higher sciences made less progress than in the United States. Many Europeans, struck by this fact, have looked upon it as a natural and inevitable result of equality; and they have thought that, if a democratic state of society and democratic institutions were ever to prevail over the whole earth, the human mind would gradually find its beacon-lights grow dim, and men would relapse into a period of darkness.feedback
