Social and Political Power

This is a truism culled from the ages, that social power and political power are always in conflict, that the poverty of the one is the opulence of the other, that one thrives on predation, the other on production.  The relationship is like that of the scales of a balance, which no parliamentary device can alter.
Frank Chodorov (1959, The Rise & Fall of Society)
