You are aware that the information which you are quoting is the equivalent to saying "well this author believes this and this is his interpretation of it so I'm going to take his words as fact". I am not criticising yourself, just your methodology of debating. Pretty much ALL nations around that time had a large amount of inequality, America was no different from say Britain where the lower classes lived in poverty.
I stand by my previous statement. Additionally the British had told the settlers not to advance any further into Native American lands which I believe is a fair and moral stance however this was ignored by the settlers preferring genocide and greed. Every country in the world has to pay tax and the colonies were no different, additionally the British were against slavery so all in all I don't think that sounds very tyrannical. Do you?
The philanthropy is basically a lie: the young royals are less interested in this and are linked to less charities than the older ones. Also their version of philanthropy is turning up once a year ( if that) for a few hours and therefore taking the credit for all the volunteers work.
You talk of education: well for one the Queen has none. The queen was educated by her uneducated nanny.
Education again William stated that his now wife helpe him at university or he would have failed his first 2 years (Where I am from we call this cheating).
Also where the hell did you get the idea that they have a work ethic??? Royalty by definition do not have a work ethic. They are not who they are because they have worked hard, or because they have ability: they are who they are because they are who they are.
