If you look up "ruling class" in the dictionary ...



From the Associated Press: "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, left, talking with Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson Jr. after a dinner at the White House Monday."

Check out this Camejo obit, and scroll down the paragraph starting with "In a speech in May 1969..." to get a humorous meditation on who comprises the ruling class.

Paulson is a christian scientist, which is my father's family's religion. They are currently the most overrepresented religion in congress, rather than regular WASPs: http://www.adherents.com/adh_congress.html For such a funny religion, they have a particularly high overrepresentation in some ruling-class fields. Unlike baptist faith healers, they don't have such an emphasis on bible interpretation as opposed to denying material existence, but I'm not sure how the religion might prime them for business or government.
