~ Robert Louis Stevenson (November 13, 1850 - December 03, 1894)
In the immutability of their surroundings the foreign shores, the foreign faces, the changing immensity of life, glide past, veiled not by a sense of mystery but by a slightly disdainful ignorance; for there is nothing mysterious to a seaman unless it be the sea itself, which is the mistress of his existence and as inscrutable as Destiny.
~ Joseph Conrad (December 03, 1857 - August 03, 1924)

In the South, prior to the Civil Rights movement and the 1964 Civil Rights Act, democracy was the rule.

The majority - the mob [and occasionally the lynch mob] - ruled.
