At the beginning of the Nicomachean Ethics Aristotle makes the following, very democratic observation:
Persons of low tastes (always in the majority) hold that happiness is pleasure … The utter vulgarity of the herd of men comes out in their preference for the sort of existence a cow leads. Their view would hardly get a respectful hearing.
And so he dismisses the perceived view of the majority and focuses on ethics for the well-born, i.e. the propertied class.
