The UK is an Oligarchy

The UK is an Oligarchy

Oligarchy meaning “few”, “to rule or to command”; 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.

The UK is dominated by a rich and powerful elite. Some might say it has been this way for hundred’s of years; in fact so long it is now called the “aristocracy”.

An oligarchy historically is a society where political and economic life is dominated by a small number of very rich individuals, the oligarchs. This is the thesis put forward in a recent book by Ferdinand Mount that Britain is an oligarchy. This is supported by a similar study in the US which found that even when 80% of the population favored a particular public policy change; it was only instituted 43% of the time . While in a 2012 study, this showed that while only 23% of Americans favored the bank bailouts, they were implemented anyway by a compliant Congress. The role of government is to keep the poligarchs [masses] sedated.
