„Liberal education is the ladder by which we try to ascend from mass democracy to democracy as originally meant.“

—  Leo Strauss Classical philosophy specialist and father of neoconservativism 1899 - 1973

“What is liberal education,” pp. 4-5
Liberalism Ancient and Modern (1968)
Kontext: It was once said that democracy is the regime that stands or falls by virtue: a democracy is a regime in which all or most adults are men of virtue, and since virtue seems to require wisdom, a regime in which all or most adults are virtuous and wise, or the society in which all or most adults have developed their reason to a high degree, or the rational society. Democracy, in a word, is meant to be an aristocracy which has broadened into a universal aristocracy. … There exists a whole science—the science which I among thousands of others profess to teach, political science—which so to speak has no other theme than the contrast between the original conception of democracy, or what one may call the ideal of democracy, and democracy as it is. … Liberal education is the ladder by which we try to ascend from mass democracy to democracy as originally meant.
