: Yes...I can also say it in Greek. Aristos (not sure how to make Greek characters on my computer) means "good," or "best." However, I am more partial to "elite rule."

Eliteism is equally terrible to the sincere socialist as capitalism, this wasnt always the case with the likes of Thomas Moore, Saint-Simon, Edward Bellamy, Sidney and Beatrice Webb, George Bernard Shaw and H.G.Wells being good examples of socialist eliteism but socialisms under new management now.

: Unfortunately, aristocracy now has connotations of inbred royalty that just leeches off its country in the name of "divine rule." Ah well.

A bit like capitalists with their leeching of the working population, their armies of political yes men subsidisers, armies of price hiking middle men and naive ideologues that they can betray at any moment and useful mental case opposition, soviet communism was one, to use as a 'do you really want that because that's what you'll get' scaremongering.
