I tend to follow JFC's analysis that Machiavel has created the 
"multitude" concept of free self-determinated people and that we are 
embodying it in permitting them to interconnect easily, allowing 
polycracy to emerge aside monarchy, aristrocracy, and democracy.

Wikipedia explains that "Modern depictions of aristocracy tend to 
regard it not as a legitimate aristocracy (rule by the best), but 
rather as a <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plutocracy>plutocracy (rule 
by the rich)".

MSism depiction is a rule by the stakeholders, i.e.:
- either those being entrusted responsibilities, what is a variation 
of aristocracy
- or those involved in or affected by a course of action, what is:
   - democracy if there is vote
   - polycracy if there is a decision emergence (cf. different works 
on the DET, decision emergence theory).

==> question for this: what is a stakeholder? Is this revolution a 
progression or a regression?


Tne debate seems therefore to be:
