„If men were angels, no government would be necessary.“

—  James Madison 4th president of the United States (1809 to 1817) 1751 - 1836
1780s, Federalist Papers (1787–1788), Context: If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions. Federalist No. 51 (6 February 1788)
