Harold Lasswell

‘We must put aside democratic dogmatism about men being the best judges of their own interest since men are often very poor judges of their own interest.’

– Harold Lasswell, one of the most respected US social scientists and communication theorists of the 20th century, explaining that democracy means people in high places determining what our best interests are.
