``Democracy extends the sphere of individual freedom,  Democracy attaches
all possible value to each man, while socialism makes each man a mere
agent, a mere number. Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but
one word: equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks
equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.''
   de Tocqueville == 1848
