Could the greeks have developed a democracy without the development of a Aristocracy?
I don't see why not. What does the aristocracy have to do with government of, by, and for the people?
yea it has to do with the govenment of, by and for the people im not sure.
What is the meaning of the word aristocrat?
1. a member of an aristocracy, esp. a noble.
2. a person who has the tastes, manners, etc., characteristic of members of an aristocracy.
3. an advocate of an aristocratic form of government.
4. anything regarded as the best, most elegant, or most stylish of its kind
Right. Aristocrats are members of the aristocracy which "is a class of persons holding exceptional rank and privileges, especially the hereditary nobility." (From Dictionary.com)
A democracy is a government of ordinary people who vote for their leaders. Aristocrats are no more important than any other citizen.
Development of an aristocracy has nothing to do with democracy.
