PLANETARY OLIGARCHY ~ Mondays on www.aquarianradio, from 10 to 11 AM HST, 3 to 4 PM Eastern hosts Janet Kira Lessin & Dr. Sasha Lessin hold a roundtable discussion with authors Reynaldo Duarte (Elementary My Dear Walid, Book One of the Planetary Oligarchy Series) and James Clayton (New World Order)
Oligarchy (from Greek (oligarkhía); from (olígos), meaning “few”, and (arkho), meaning “to rule or to command”) is a form of power structure in which power effectively rests with a small number of people. These people could be distinguished by royalty, wealth, family ties, education, corporate, or military control. Such states are often controlled by a few prominent families who typically pass their influence from one generation to the next.
But inheritance is not a necessary condition for the application of this term. Throughout history, oligarchies have been tyrannical (relying on public obedience and/or oppression to exist) or relatively benign. Aristotle pioneered the use of the term as a synonym for rule by the rich, for which the exact term is plutocracy. However, oligarchy is not always a rule by wealth, as oligarchs can simply be a privileged group, and do not have to be connected by bloodlines as in a monarchy.
