What if Tocqueville was wrong and the coming of democracy was not a "Providential Fact" but a mere blip in humanity's aristocratic history? What if the idea that all people are basically equal is already on its way out? Education was supposed to be the great equalizer, but now it divides the gentry from the plebs. The revolution in gender roles was supposed to be about greater equality, but the result of birth control pills and professional women marrying professional men has been a concentration of wealth in small families. The great future struggle will be between the new international aristocracy of education and wealth and the nation-state. Liberal democracy will be the loser.
