Beyond simple politics, a larger loyalty to the primacy of democratic values ...democratizing the society itself.

...men do not live by governments alone...the principles of democracy are not merely political. ...the democratic principle should become the key criterion for social reform in all areas of society.

The principle that justifies political equality, his intellectual liberty and his participation in governmental sovereignty, should be extended to analogous recognition in all the other institutions in which he participates and which more deeply affect his everyday life...including reforms in economic life, in educational institutions and even religious communities.

Democracy is indivisible. It is more than a political technique. It is based upon the worth of persons, irrespective of class, color or creed.
