And that's how guilty Liberals are created. They are just powerful schlubs who think that they are secretly unworthy to exercise power.
I've come across that type.
Some of them may indeed feel (or have felt) guilty, but they are certainly not humble. Their background and education, not to mention their natural greed, leads them to feel better qualified to hold power than the rest of us and that it is therefore their natural role to rule over the rest of us.
They are the Political Class, the class of the government rich and the crony capitalists, as opposed to the free-market, non-rent-seeking rich. And the Political Class is one class against which it is totally legitimate to make war!
Would you indulge me? I've come across this term, a lot, and I have a hard time understanding it. Who is seeing rent from whom, and for what? I sense it is some sort of term with a wide inclusion, but it keeps eluding me.
