Part 2 further illuminates the forms of government, showing that some are merely abstractions that have no real existence and remain in the realm of pure theory. This section begins by showing what forms of government actually exist in reality, shows how the proper amount of government supports freedom, how the different collectivist forms that do exist always lead to oligarchy (rule by a few over the masses) and what type of economic activity is possible under each. It shows that democracy - mob rule - is antithetical to freedom, negating property and individual inalienable rights, being oriented to the mob, under a tyranny of the masses which the elites exploit.
Part two also explains the purpose and intent of our founding fathers in establishing a Republic. Nowhere in the Declaration of Independence or in the Consitution will you find the word, "Democracy" and part two explains why the founders feared that most loathsome form of government and how our current situation resembles that of the Roman empire which ended up in a tyranny of the elite, having devolved from a Republic to a Democracy and from there to an Oligarchy.
Finally, Part 2 begins to touch on the subject of the misapprehension of the alleged struggle between capitalism and communism, which is further developed in part 3.
