144. If you cannot see the difference between Caroline Kennedy and, say, Dick Cheney
then there's not much common ground here. Cheney is a good example because he became the most powerful man in the world even tho he was not in any kind of dynastic family. Indeed, he flunked out of Yale because he felt inferior to the students there who were from the families you write about, the ones in "the club". It so embittered him that he operated on a grudge basis from then on against the same people in the same club that you vehemently oppose and led him to his zealous pursuit of power.

I think it is instructive to see what such bitterness can wreak upon the world...
