The Aristocratic Bias

Hackett, Francis
July 1956
New Republic;7/23/56, Vol. 135 Issue 4, p21
This article focuses on the role of policemen in democratic countries. For 30 years, democrats of strong aristocratic bias, some of them, and of plain liberal bias, many of them, prepared to give up the police job in India, much as it hurts. The Policeman's historic function is not to remove hunger and illiteracy. Those who are resolute about removing hunger and illiteracy are equally resolute about removing political policemen. That is the backbone of democracy, spineless, macabre and unreal as it may seem.
