Aristocrcy is back. Viewers are fascinated by the English aristocrcy of a previous centry in Downton Abbey. Readers are buying the 1,000 page best-seller, Capital in the 21st Century of Thomas Piketty, the French Economist that cricicizes a new, though familiar, 21st aristocry. These works of fiction and fact remind us of the rigidity and stagnation of a ruling elite. But looking back at ancient times, it is surprising to see reactions and frustrations not unlike our own.
