The Aim of Democracy

Joan Mascaró, letter to Irwin Bullock (February 18, 1946), in Correspondència de Joan Mascaró (1930-1986), ed. Gregori Mir, Vol. II (Mallorca: Editorial Moll, 1998), pp. 260-261 (at 261; capitalization of original retained):
An aristocracy of intellect should be the aim of democracy: not less Greek and less Latin for the few, but more greek and more Latin for all.
Hat tip: Ian Jackson.
