“This is not philosophy. It is not utopia. This is the evidence of the last hundred years. Societies that are open, that have popular checks on authority, that are based on rules and respect, are those that prosper. Societies that are paternalistic, that foster suspicion and cynicism, that breed the contempt of citizens, that tolerate corruption, that crush dissent and focus on the benefits of the few at the expense of the many... they are the ones that fail.” Rt. Hon. Jean Chrétien
