For Our Friends, Who Would Rather Fight than Submit.
“Parliamentarianism, i.e. the public permission to choose between five basic political opinions, flatters and wins the favor of all those who like to appear independent and individualistic and would like to fight for their opinions. In the end, however, it is irrelevant whether the herd is commanded to have one opinion or permitted to have five. Whoever deviates from the five public opinions and steps aside will always have the whole herd against him.” The Gay Science, Book Three, 174.
