192

Democracy is not a type of constitution nor a form of society. The people's power is not that of the population amassed, not that of the majority, not that of the working classes. It is simply the power that belongs to those who are no more entitled to govern than to be governed.

Jacques Ranciere

Jacques Ranciere

Neither a servant nor a master I,
I take no sooner a large price than a small price, I will have my

Workmen and Workwomen!
Were all educations practical and ornamental well display'd out of
me, what would it amount to?

what would it amount to?
Were I to you as the boss employing and paying you, would that satisfy you?

Walt Whitman

La Classe
