Talk:Alexander Fraser Tytler

Return to "Alexander Fraser Tytler" page.

It's true that many quotes are attributed incorrectly. And that is not without importance. Never-the-less, the quote has the right of truth. It doesn't take a genius to know that pure "majoritarian style democracy" is a very bad idea. (Unsigned comment from IP circa 13 June 2011‎)

  • Whether the content is true or false, and whether pure democracy is good idea, bad idea, or paisley idea, both are pretty much irrelevant for Wikiquote. As I understand, what matters is who said what. Abb3w (talk) 21:50, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

Why the hell is the "can only exist until" quote under "disputed" rather than "misattributed" if there is no evidence for the quote ever having been said prior to the 1950s, when the putative author was long rotted? I'm going to change that. Abb3w (talk) 21:50, 11 April 2013 (UTC)
