Stran 242 - Orthodox democratic theory assumes that every citizen has. or ought to have, thought out for himself certain opinions. tt ought to have a definite view, defensible by arguments. of what the country needs. of what principles ought to be applied in governing it, of the men to whose hands the government; ought to be entrusted.
