Where have we seen this before?

  1. Refuses to play by previously agreed-upon rules.
  2. Driven by a persecution complex.
  3. Disdainful toward other people (“weakies”).
  4. Intolerant toward certain minorities.
  5. Demands complete loyalty from friends; one misstep and “you’re fired.”

Don’t go there, Dana, oh, don’t go there.
Better reread “Heart of A Dog”.

I will read it — with pleasure! I have read “Master and Margarita,” but not any of Bulgakov’s earlier works.

Please do!
In my opinion this one is superior to M&M, against which I’ve always had some reservations.

Haha, that is actually a very interesting comparison between two powerful personalities.
And it doesn`t even include the one GOAT larger-than-life Kasparov!
Game changers have always been controversial, haven`t they? Pretty much.
But what would the world look like without some color in it? Damn too dull, I`d say.

I`ve never been to America (yet) but have always loved “the spirit” and sense of drama.
