"Those people should not be listened to who keep saying the voice of the people is the voice of God, since the riotousness of the crowd is always very close to madness." – Alcuin

Simple: People should not be listened to who believe that that the things people say are also what God says, because those types of people can cause riots and are similar to insanity.
