Aristotle’s View of Democracy & Government

Aristotle’s Beliefs

Rule of law or aristocracy is better than democracy, which is rule by the needy. Aristotle argues that democracies are ruled by those in the government rather than being ruled by the interests of the country.

Aristotle’s best fit to rule

A government should be by those who have time to pursue virtue. But, the United States is moving towards campaign financing laws which will allow politicians to be effective with little well-endowed fathers. This is also becoming different from a modern career politician who derives his wealth at the expense of citizens.
