“Democracy is when the indigent, and not the men of property are the rulers.” Aristotle
In his book Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle outlines virtues as the median between extremes. For example, courage is between cowardice and recklessness. Justice is the median between unlawfulness and privilege. And democracy is the virtue between anarchy and autocracy. I think this ancient reminder is as relevant today as it was in the time of Aristotle.
