Excessive wealth in the hands of the few is deleterious to any political system.

In the modern world the bribe has not entirely disappeared.... I was in Thailand once during the elections, and to my surprise, people in the country side expected money through the post for their vote. In a relatively poor country, where the overwhelming majority is poorly educated, and totally preoccupied with the necessities of life, government policy counts for very little.

There can be no democracy where great wealth disparity exists.

Chomsky is an intellectual giant... great book....
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.
