Collage 730

"Belief has been destroyed, and therefore it is necessary to explain the meaning of power... if the source of power lies neither in the physical nor in the moral qualities of the person who possesses it, then it is obvious that the source of this power lies outside this person... power is the sum total of the wills of the masses, transferred by express or tacit agreement to rules chosen by the masses." -- Leo Tolstoy
