  •  Bertolt Brecht said it (9+ / 0-)

    According to Wikiquote, "Some party hack decreed that the people had lost the government's confidence and could only regain it with redoubled effort. If that is the case, would it not be be simpler, if the government simply dissolved the people and elected another?"

    Or in the original German, "Das Volk hat das Vertrauen der Regierung verscherzt. Wäre es da nicht doch einfacher, die Regierung löste das Volk auf und wählte ein anderes?"

    IIRC, he was discussing the former Deutsche Demokratik Republik (East Germany).
