The paper shows that Aristotle was perhaps the first political philosopher to allow that all regimes are not the same to all people. It shows that he felt that political regimes are often more subjective in their quality than objective. It discusses how, after permitting these deviations however, Aristotle was quite adamant about the better regimes and the type of people who populate them.

From the Paper:

"Aristotle does recognize the reason that so many impure forms of regimes exist: every state contains many elements, and these various elements combine in different levels of efficiency in allowing their ruling classes to subvert their freedoms. Democracy is the one form of government that represents and involvement of the common people in their own destinies and futures. Democracy is the only regime which poses checks and balances on the ruling class to ensure that they are concerned with the common advantage."
