      A major flaw is that even if we look at the lives of trailer park hillbillies, their lives are emotionally “sophisticated” and rich. It isn’t Shakespearean in presentation, yet the sting of betrayal and the folly of passionate, blind love feels the same no matter the socioeconomic class. [To be clear, most people aren’t entirely lulled to sleep until a critical event shocks (nudges) them into an “awakening”.]

    An estimable, aphoristic gem. EUM’s distinction noted x

    Am I missing something here? All this comment praise, yet low star rating… waste of 8 minutes IMO.
