"Aristocracy is not a government"

"ALL government then is coercive; we happen to have created a government which is not only coercive; but collective. There are only two kinds of government, as I have already said, the despotic and the democratic. Aristocracy is not a government, it is a riot; that most effective kind of riot, a riot of the rich."

~G.K. Chesterton: What's Wrong With the World.
