    The book American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America by Colin Woodard quotes a Virginian of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, John Randolph, as saying, “I am an aristocrat. I love liberty; I hate equality.”

Empowered by the Virginia government, Randolph believed that gentry such as himself should rule over all those beneath him, including farmers, women, and enslaved African Americans. Like many members of the Virginia gentry, Randolph despised democracy, preferring a form of republican government that favored white men born into wealthy, prominent families.”

    Which is, by the way, named from a word which originally meant “pirate” or “robber.” Fitting, I think….
