GivethePeopleWhatTheyWantWikiUserLUMPENPROLETARIAT—No, they don’t Sharon.  A plutocracy is not a true democracy.  Neither is a kleptocracy.  Neither is an oligarchy.  These forms of social organisation, organised by the rich and powerful, the suburban and the affluent, will always prey, vampire-like, upon the most vulnerable, whether consciously or unconsciously.  Give the people what they want, my friends.  They want equal rights and socioeconomic justice.
