Politics Is a Replacement for War.

—“Majority rule is only sustainable if its a proxy for fighting strength. Politics is a replacement for war. It assesses the likely outcome of conflict without the bloodshed. But leaders lost that understanding and expanded voting to those who have no fighting or funding capacity. There is no functional reason to expand voting beyond those who pay taxes or are able and willing to fight, except to empower power hungry politicians and their goal of farming more votes by giving the vote to those who bear none of the burden as citizens (or non-citizens).”—Steve Pender
