The future establishment of Aryan civilization in every nook and corner of the earth can now be safely predicted. It is even percolating into China. But their is a curious paradox which must be cleared up. Aryans are intensely democratic among themselves, yet always aristocratic in their contacts with lower races. This aloofness of the guiding, brainy race from the guided types is an instinct due to natural selection during its evolution, but it has become an instrument for the mutual aid now between all types.

In the first place, we must explain what democracy really is, as the word has been misunderstood. We will define sovereignty as the ownership of a corporation; the stockholders of a railroad, for instance, are the citizens of that little government, and are on an exact equality, that is, each share has a vote. Now, all the citizens of the social corporation called a nation do not possess a share of its sovereignty because they are not all stockholders, and hence, we find that in no country are all the citizens voters. We formerly excluded from the franchise every one who was not able to do his share of protecting it in war - children, women, the aged, insane, criminals, etc. Other nations exclude certain lower races which have been conquered and which, in the higher civilization thrust upon them, have increased much more in numbers than they would if they had not been conquered. The 6,000,000 or 7,000,000 Malays in the Philippines never did and never could exercise the powers of sovereignty, though they might in a Malay government of low form. They would not be in existence were it not for the increased population due to the high civilization forced on the country by the Spanish government. Naturally, then, they could have no share in the government to which they owe their creation, for if they owned it, the civilization would decay, population decrease, and they themselves die. Unless ruled, they cannot exist.

A pure democracy or a government by all the people of a nation never existed; the nearest approximations were the ancient homogeneous Teutonic villages where all the males were young and on an equality, the old and feeble being killed off. Everywhere else, what might have been called democracies, have invariably been aristocracies or oligarchies, where the sovereignty resided n a minority or a few, the bulk of the people not even being citizens, but like resident aliens, or if called citizens, did not possess a share of the sovereignty. Hence, a democracy is a government by a part, often the minority, of the people. They make their laws directly in the "folkmoot" or "town meeting" - a direct democracy - or, if very numerous by representatives - a representative democracy. Their will is executed by a chief, who may be selected for a short term or for life, or by hereditary descent from one who was directly elected. The latter type, though called a limited monarchy or government by one man, is a true democracy, as much as a republic in which the executive is elected for a short term.
