Reminds me of this:
Quote:
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.

I would source the quote, but my brief search indicated that the actual source is not certain.

Popularism explains a lot - Berlusconi, the Tea Party, etc. Say something that sounds good, promise utopia...why have an actual workable plan that people can analyze?
