Why I am in Favor

I am in favor for Oligarchy because with this type of government, a group of people are in charge so there will be more order in a community and it will be safer. Another reason why I am in favor for Oligarchy is because I believe that in order to maintain a controlled society, I think that certain people should be in charge instead of people being free because then things would be out of control and we would turn into a Anarchy government.
