“If those men are ignorant, why should they have a share in so important a thing as Government? They may know all about beer, and wool, and iron — but perhaps they can only judge what is good for themselves, not what is best for the whole country, with all its rich and poor. I do not think that only the wisest scholars and most intelligent persons should be allowed to help in the ruling of a great nation.”
