accomplished aristocrat and almost as a demagogue.
Knowing that the system he advocates keeps the masses from this type of
lifestyle, it remains only logical to show that he was not a true

attempting to understand how America is "A Land of Opportunity" for a
few, but a "Land of Social and Economic Stagnation" for the masses.
