Political Leadership Today

Aristophanes, Knights 191-193 (tr. Jeffrey Henderson):
No, political leadership's no longer a job for a man of education and good character, but for the ignorant and disgusting.

ἡ δημαγωγία γὰρ οὐ πρὸς μουσικοῦ
ἔτ᾿ ἐστὶν ἀνδρὸς οὐδὲ χρηστοῦ τοὺς τρόπους,
ἀλλ᾿ εἰς ἀμαθῆ καὶ βδελυρόν.
