Good reading about politicians, democracy and public virtues

This article by professor Angelo Codevilla is thought-provoking reading. Highly recommended!

America's Ruling Class -- And the Perils of Revolution

Another excellent article, written by professor Kenneth Minogue 

Morals & the servile mind
On the diminishing moral life of our democratic age.

Professor Frank Furedi´s column is also recommended reading:

It’s time to stand up for courage and conviction
Machiavelli and other humanists would have been appalled by today’s bureaucratisation of everyday life that threatens vital public virtues.
