What happened is universal suffrage. The Republic was not designed for it. None ever has been. Given a choice between depending on themselves, men, or government, women choose government. So do debtors, the unemployed, the underclasses created by government, and the ruling class itself. Toqueville: Universal suffrage is not only the most detestable element of government, but also a powerful revolutionary instrument.
