“rich have always objected to being governed at all” by G K Chesterton

16 Jan

Someone quoted following portion in comment section of Guardian, I liked them so much that I have copied them here

The poor have been rebels, but they have
never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn’t; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all.

– The Man Who Was Thursday, G K Chesterton
