Not true anymore. It's easily manipulated by propaganda and radio talk shows. And fairly easily predictable on the whole.

Ah how can I argue w such a great man: Let me begin. He did not not have the benefit of modern political science or the power of media. So today the mob is far more predictable. Politicians the same. He is correct on the last.

Disagree. If you thought about it, I bet you could think of some things more unpredictable, obscure, and deceptive than each of those. Like today's sound bites, old quotes may inspire or incite, but are rarely accurate if actually considered.

Nihil est incertius vulgo, nihil obscurius voluntate hominum, nihil fallacius ratione tota comitiorum.
