- In a word, aristocracy was displaced by plutocracy.
- It would replace democracy with plutocracy, letting the wealthy and big business make laws in their own interests.
- The danger is that plutocracy will prevail over democracy, that the free market will rule over the free citizen.
- Anti-immigrant hatred, urban violence, democracy subverted by plutocracy - these are not, the film shows, new developments.
- What we're effectively seeing is the displacement of democratic representative government with something approaching plutocracy.
