You're missing the point I was trying to make.

It's not Peter's intelligence, ability to speak, or dedication to
socialism. And I wasn't criticizing Peter's being a millionaire or
being a Green.

It's the plain and simple fact that he's not Fidel or Lenin. He comes
from a different place, lives in a different society, and is playing a
completely different role.
