Sole edition: Successful and prolific author, James Fenimore Cooper (1789-1851) wrote The Last of the Mohicans and this incisive analysis of democracy. "[Liberty's] real friends ought to know that the most insidious attacks, are made on it by those who are the largest trustees of authority, in their efforts to increase their power." - p.34. "All men are equal before the law; all classes of the community being liable equally to taxation, military service, jury duties, and to the other impositions attendant on civilization." - p.43. "Failing of the means of obtaining power more honestly, the fraudulent and ambitious find a motive to mislead, and even to try to corrupt the common sentiment." - p.69-70. "The peculiar office of a demagogue is to advance his own interests, by affecting a deep devotion to the interests of the people." - p.99.
