“Democracy: A government of the masses. Authority derived through mass meeting or any other form of ‘direct expression.’ Results in mobocracy. Attitude toward property is communistic — negating property rights. Attitude of the law is that the will of the majority shall regulate, whether it be based upon deliberation or governed by passion, prejudice, and impulse, without restraint or regard to consequences. Results in demagogism, license, agitation, discontent, anarchy.” (War Department Training Manual, No. 2000-25. 1928.)
