Resentments of the entrepreneur, now a venture capitalist, born the son of a milk truck driver, angry as a child for being born into work, envious of the well-to-do households where his father made deliveries, shamed that he believed these people to be better than himself. Exchanging views over tea, his revolving around what he thinks is Nietzsche but is in truth Stirner, mine centering of course on Marx, trying and failing to find common language, his end-of-the-day opinion a trivial rejection of Christianity on Social Darwinist grounds: poor people deserve to be poor, because unlike himself they've allowed it to happen.
