Trusting Our Leaders

From the Thomas Jefferson Blog, an observation on government and trust.

Link: Thomas Jefferson Blog » On the people’s need to monitor the government:

Unless the mass retains sufficient control over those entrusted with the powers of their government, these will be perverted to their own oppression, and to the perpetuation of wealth and power in the individuals and their families selected for the trust. Whether our Constitution has hit on the exact degree of control necessary, is yet under experiment.
