TOLFA Segment 14, Question 6

With all that wealth concentrated in the hands of a few powerful families, won't this free society quickly self-destruct? Indeed it will. This is a fast track to plutocracy - rule by a few rich tyrants as in Mexico.
It won't be "concentrated" and they won't be "few." Wrong premises.
Freedom could be lost only if a government is instituted. Wealth can be used only to persuade, not to dictate.
On the contrary, the wealth will be spread so wide nothing any would-be ruler could offer would be of any interest to anyone.

Don't hurry away; even when you've got the right answer, try clicking on the others to see why they are wrong! Then when you have correctly answered this make notes in your student notebook, prepare for Segment 15..
