Sapere aude.

Latin for "dare to know" or "dare to be wise."

"Democracy is necessarily despotism, as it establishes an executive power contrary to the general will; all being able to decide against one whose opinion may differ, the will of all is therefore not that of all: which is contradictory and opposite to liberty."
(Immanuel Kant, Perpetual Peace, II, 1795)
