"We look at democracy, and we feel democracy is as strong as its institutions. That's not true, because the institutions are only as strong as the people's support of those institutions and their confidence in those institutions. So, it doesn't matter if you have the appearance of these institutions. If people don't know that they're's only a matter of time before the utility and usefulness of those institutions has been degraded."

We tend to think a democracy is only as a democratic as its institutions. It may be more accurate to say a democracy is only as democratic as its citizens.
