a government controlled by the wealthy
"Dubbya is a plutocrat."
Plutocracy is the rule by the super-rich international capitalists and their retainers; the press, office holders, spies and thugs. In a plutocracy the middle class is controlled though taxation, low-cost imports (free trade) and corrupt politicians and in a communist system the middle class is exterminated. The perfect plutocracy consists of two classes only—the plutocrats and their overseers and the subsistence-level poor. The degree of economic inequality is staggering as is the low level of social mobility.
Although the word plutocracy has disappeared from some modern dictionaries, as if it no longer exists, it is in fact the only name to correctly describe many modern governments.
See Earth Every governemnt that has ever existed is just a glorified plutocracy.
A government controlled by the wealthy.
Al Gore and John Kerry are plutocrats.
Any administration, or ruling body,
that is so out of touch, or coloured by money,
that they might as well be on Pluto.
The Plutocracy in our Land
was seemingly separated from its
living, working people
by vast, galactic distances.
Government controlled by the wealthiest members of a society, usually through stealth. Money buys legislators and bureaucrats and is used to dupe voters through movements asserted to be conservative.
Conservative movements using concepts of "retaining our liberties" and "taking back the government" are usually funded by the plutocracy.
