Someone said that political system on Komarr hadn't changed in 300 years but in fact, like all political systems, it had evolved. from an initial democracy through to a plutocracy/oligarchy. The original democratic ideals were debased by the voting shares being made hereditary which led to the inevitable concentration of power in ever fewer hands.
People assume that modern democracies are the 'right' or 'natural' form of government but they are evolving too and away from democratic ideal in may places because most politicians are not accountable for the decisions they make.
