Because she’s one of America’s noble class, she walks.
So I got really irate again about how my nation isn’t what I was raised to believe it was, and it’s not a nation of fairness and equality, but where we still have kings and lords with divine right.

In the 80s series, Max Headroom there was the notion of the Blanks who did not have a valid identity according to the civic databases and with that didn’t have rights either.
