#Cyberpeacefare #American Democracy #Arthur M.Schlesinger

"The American democracy must discover a middle ground between making a President a Czar and making him a puppet. The problem is to devise means of reconciling a strong and purposeful Presidency with equally strong and purposeful forms of democratic control. Or to put it succinctly, we need a strong Presidency - but a strong Presidency within the Constitution."  Arthur M Schlesinger
