The real argument against aristocracy is that it always means the rule of the ignorant. For the most dangerous of all forms of ignorance is ignorance of work. . .  Our society is so abnormal that the normal man never dreams of having the normal occupation of looking after his own property.  When he chooses a trade, he chooses one of the ten thousand trades that involve looking after other people's property."
- G.K. Chesterton
