Democracy: The Aristotelian Perspective

November 5, 2008

"In a democracy the poor will have more power than the rich, because there are more of them, and the will of the majority is supreme."

— Aristotle

I give you this contrarian bit of wisdom today, of all days, because if you are reading this I assume one of your goals is to become rich. I also want you to be on notice that the richer you get, the more you’ll be susceptible to what Aristotle calls "the will of the majority." Consider yourself forewarned.
