Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
*oligarchy, *archy cannot alter the object of discourse which is irreducible oligarchy. Nor does it dispel the category error engrossed by the most invidious neologism of them all; that is to construe, any form of oligarchy is demarchy ("democracy") ... regardless of the exemplary practices purportedly invented in the Golden Age of Greece, the  republic of classical Roman, or the modern-post-industrial-globalized age of social network telecommunication.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
