Prince Charles and Pete Stark, studies in resplendent arrogance

Pete Stark and Prince Charles both regard government as a righteous tool to be used to make others conform to their clearly superior moral vision. They are both convinced that anyone who doesn't share their grand moral vision is deeply evil and an enemy of the general welfare as they define it. Their zealotry is just as scary and misdirected as any petty tyrant. Unfortunately they have much more power and influence than most petty tyrants.
