"Democracy extends the sphere of individual freedom, socialism restricts
Democracy attaches all possible value to each man;
socialism makes each man a mere agent, a mere number.
Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word: equality.
But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty,
socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude."
-- Alexis de Tocqueville
(1805-1859) French historian
