Democracy

“Legislators represent people, not trees or acres. Legislators are elected by voters, not farms or cities or economic interests. A nation once primarily rural in character becomes predominantly urban. But the basic principle of representative government remains, and must remain unchanged – the weight of a citizens vote cannot be made to depend on where he lives”
Earl Warren, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the USA: “Reynolds versus Sims” (1964) – “One man, one vote”
