In new nations, or nations recently emerged from colonialism, those who fought for freedom (veterans of the revolution) will probably have a high degree of motivation to be involved in the political process. Their countrymen, moreover, will have become accustomed to looking to them for leadership. The dynamic of the revolution can, under such circumstances, continue into the emerging regime. By the same token, veterans of a defeated regime may continue for some time to engage in protest and disruptive activity.oligarchy, government by the few, especially despotic power exercised by a small and privileged group for corrupt or selfish purposes. Oligarchies in which members of the ruling group are wealthy or exercise their power through their wealth are known as Pluto raciest.
Aristotle used the term oligarchia to designate the rule of the few when it was exercised not by the best but by bad persons unjustly. In this sense, oligarchy is a debased form of aristocracy, which denotes government by the few in which power is vested in the best individuals. Most classic oligarchies have resulted when governing elites were recruited exclusively from a ruling caste—a hereditary social grouping that is set apart from the rest of society by religion, kinship, economic status, prestige, or even language. Such elites tend to exercise power in the interests of their own class.
