It really wasn't. Your synopsis, is wrong. You're insight is narrow (albeit, am not a fan of the story). It would behoove, you to question what you think.Rhett Butler should have had no iconic epiphanies by Nobel transfer to so many about capitalism and wartime. Equal and opposite effects being in disparity to the endless modes of income and expense for every significant cultural and world event should have never been given insight.
That book was about some chick. The end.
