I Ask Again… What’s an Aristocrat? A Snob?

I’ve blogged about this before but obviously didn’t get enough of it. What’s an aristocrat? The answer is: snobbish. No really, that’s one of the definitions of aristocratic, that and socially exclusive. To be aristocratic means that you partake of, or are characteristic of a ruling or privileged class, a patrician. Now we ask, what’s a patrician, and that would be a person of high birth or breeding. An aristocracy is a government ruled by this smaller group of the “privileged class,” even though history has shown us, these people of “high birth or breeding” aren’t always the sharpest knife in the drawer. Unfortunately, an aristocratic position of wealth and connections often places undesirable candidates into governing positions. I’m pretty sure I’ll blog about this again because… I find it hard to believe.  Suellen Ocean is the author of the historical series, The Lion’s Trace Available here:
