„Demokracie je, když dva vlci a jedno jehně hlasují, co bude k večeři. Svoboda je, když dobře ozbrojené jehně odmítá hlasovat“

—  Andrew Jackson americký generál a politik, sedmý prezident Spojených států 1767 - 1845

PŮVODNÍ ZNĚNÍ
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.

Misattributed, Widely attributed to Franklin on the Internet, sometimes without the second sentence. It is not found in any of his known writings, and the word "lunch" is not known to have appeared anywhere in English literature until the 1820s, decades after his death. The phrasing itself has a very modern tone and the second sentence especially might not even be as old as the internet. Some of these observations are made in response to a query at Google Answers. google. com/answers/threadview? id=389308 http://answers.
