Aristocracy And The Meaning Of Class Rule” by Philippe Mairet, first published in 1931.
“Aristocracy is here considered as an inherent principle in the structure of any society. The writer contends that the age of democracy is only a phase of social evolution and that the conception of democracy is inadequate to create or sustain a politico-social state. This theme is illustrated by extensive references to the movements of history and closes with a prospect of social renewal through an aristocratic movement, based upon a synthesis of all sciences and directed towards world-development and organisation.”
