Majority

There is something wonderful in seeing a wrong-headed majority assailed by truth.

John Kenneth Galbraith (1908-2007) Canadian-American economist.

Whenever you find that you are on the side of the majority, it is time to reform.

Mark Twain (1835-1910) U.S. humorist, writer, and lecturer.

Human life in common is only made possible when a majority comes together which is stronger than any separate individual and which remains united against all separate individuals. The power of this community is then set up as ''right'' in opposition to the power of the individual, which is condemned as ''brute force.''

Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) Austrian fhysician. Founder of Psychoanalysis.
