BASED ON JUICE INSTEAD OF BLOOD: Victor Davis Hanson: The New Liberal Aristocracy. “Most are self-made multimillionaires who acquired their money through government service, finance, law, investment, or marriage. If the old-money liberals lived it up tastefully within their walled family compounds, the new liberal aristocrats are unashamed about living openly in a manner quite at odds with their professed populist ideology. . . .
