R.N. Carew Hunt

This quote is from his book, The Theory and Practice of Communism, Penguin Books, 1963.

"In the West there has been a tendency to stress the political aspect of democracy rather than its economic aspect, and although at times this may have been carried too far, the fault is on the right side, seeing that a people which surrenders its political rights in return for promises of economic security will soon discover that it has made a bad bargain, as it is helpless if the promises are not kept."
