13. Well, good for you. I know this: nothing ever seriously threatens the status quo.

Nobody ever achieves power in this country while posing a threat to the usual ways of doing business--the permanent deep state. Some of it is financial related, some national security related, and it will never change, and it doesn't exist to benefit me or any other non-connected ordinary person. The original author, writing in American Conservative, notes that disgraced fuckups like Petraeus move seamlessly between military, CIA, and private equity/finance. These people never leave power, truly. They don't serve America, they don't serve you and me. They serve themselves and the interests who need their services.
