Dr. Stockmann:
The majority never has right on its side. Never, I say! That is one of these social lies against which an independent, intelligent man must wage war. Who is it that constitute the majority of the population in a country? Is it the clever folk, or the stupid? I don’t imagine you will dispute the fact that at present the stupid people are in an absolutely overwhelming majority all the world over. But, good Lord!-you can never pretend that it is right that the stupid folk should govern the clever ones I (Uproar and cries.) Oh, yes-you can shout me down, I know! But you cannot answer me. The majority has might on its side-unfortunately; but right it has not. I am in the right-I and a few other scattered individuals. The minority is always in the right. (Renewed uproar.)
