Epoch a period in a persons life
Transcend go beyond range/limits
Jacob Burckhardt = German historian
great men they are all that we are not

corporations, run machinery, direct military
not solitary rulers adviser, consultants, spokesmen,
opinion makers
below are middle level professional politicians in
Congress and pressure groups and new and old upper
classes
abdicate renounce ones throne
SECOND VIEW
Compact and powerful elite prevail in America based
on feeling upon historical trend of our time
1.historical events there is elite with great power
2.listen to reports of men apparently involved in
great decisions do not believe there is elite with
power with decisive consequence
NEITHER VIEWS ARE ADEQUATE
Decentralized areas: economic, political, military
domains
Life-fate of modern individual: corporation spends most
alert hours, school where educated, state in life, church
for word of God, army where disciplined.
Inculcation instill by persistent instruction
Economy dominated by 200-300 giant corps
[administratively and politically] all domains are
linked
