"What, after all, is unity but the fellowship of people? Too often, unified efforts are created simply to take advantage of people as one special interest group battles another for concessions from the government. America is certainly not a democracy when it is controlled by pressure groups. Rather, it is a pressure cooker waiting to explode when the wrong ingredients come together. Recent events show this tendency all too well."


Vine Deloria, Jr; Indian rights advocate, from his book "Custer Died For Your Sins: An Indian Manifesto" written in 1969.
