Quote

“If information technology turns out to have world-historical significance, it is not because of its economic promise, still less because it may facilitate the toppling of dictators. It is because information technology makes plain that the story democracies have told about themselves for more than two centuries has been a bluff.”  – Thomas Meaney and Yascha Mounk, from What Was Democracy?
