The creation of Siasa Place is informed by the following quotes:
“I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of society but the people themselves, and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them but to inform their discretion.”
“The worst illiterate is the political illiterate. He hears nothing, see’s nothing and takes no part in political life. He does not seem to know that the cost of living, the price of beans, of flour, of rent, of medicines all depend on political decisions..”
