The program of the reactionary party comes down quickly to the thesis that you help everyone by helping out first the people with the capital to invest. In the situation I describe, however, the investors can never get enough to behave according to rule. They know the fickleness of the democracy. They have, most of them, long ceased to be the innovative, risk-bearing entrepreneurs of fable. Mere handouts will not change them, nor will greed ensure ingenuity.
