Que governin els millors i que ho facin ben vigilats

“The aim of every political constitution is, or ought to be, first to obtain for rulers men who possess most wisdom to discern, and most virtue to pursue, the common good of society, and in the next place, to take the most effectual precautions for keeping them virtuous whilst they continue to hold their public trust.”

James Madison, The Federalist Papers, 57.

Si els millors han d’estar vigilats diu quelcom molt important sobre els millors que podem esperar. Però això no pot fer oblidar que han de ser els millors.
