Money without democracy is lopsided

first world, for whom

“Saying you want money but not democracy is like saying you want the palm of your hand but not the back of your hand;

It is like saying you want to study but don’t want to play;

It is like saying you want to work but not rest;

It is like saying you want to take and don’t want to give – indeed money is about taking, democracy is about giving.

Think twice before you say you want money but not democracy.”

-Albert Tay
