Read the following passage and answer the question that follows:
"For the success of democracy, one must train oneself in the art of self-discipline. In democracies, one should care less for himself and more for others. There can't be any divided loyalty. All loyalties must exclusively be centred around the state. If in a democracy, you create rival loyalties or you create a system in which an individual or a group, instead of suppressing his extravagance cares not for larger or other interests, then democracy is doomed."
