Re: TV-news meteorologist says Katrina man-made
Please, let's not confuse things. True, genuine aristocracy as it once was and as it should and will be when the right people claim their rightful position, is a supremacy OF THE SOUL AND SPIRIT.
Bush II is nowhere near this; in fact, he embodies the antithesis of aristocracy.
Also, aristocracy is "the rule of the best".
Before those who don't understand or in fact, want to misunderstand, picture the scenario that you meet an extraordinary person who you realize is above you in wisdom and insight. The right thing to do is to place that person above yourself in regards to your attitude towards that person and strive to reach that level of wisdom and insight.
If everyone did this honestly we would have a society based on "the rule of the best", a true aristocracy, built from the bottom up.
And no, it would not be a "democracy"... ;-)
