Ropke: Outside the Sphere

“Democracy is, in the long run, compatible with freedom only on condition that all, or at least most, voters are agreed that certain supreme norms and principles of public life and economic order must remain outside the sphere of democratic decisions.”

– Wilhem Röpke, A Humane Economy (p. 69)
