Actually, rule of the few might be a bit too literal. Oligarchies are typically negative. The positive term is aristocracy: "excellent" + "power, rule".

Also Plato was the one to define basic forms of government, Aristotle was a student of his. Might have expanded upon it, but the source is Plato. :P

Fascısm is better than oligarchy
The EU is basically an old-fashioned Oligarchy right now, then. An un-elected body of officials who "represent" their nations / people, and rule without the people's consent. What was once an economical union turned into a political one, which now wants to govern all of Europe and raise an EU army. GG.
What is an oligarchy? Easy - the USA. :D

The System of White Supremacy is an Oligarchy...
This made zero sense. It sounded like you were describing a monarchy. Rule passed down in families.
