You’ve got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came, it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else to there being some decent government. The poor man has a stake in the country. The rich hasn’t; he can get away to New Guinea in a yacht.

The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to be governed at all.– G K Chesterton, 1935
