    there have been remarkable changes in our society over the past several decades.  At this stage, a remarkable person, of almost any background, can generally find a route to respectability and success in our society.  That doesn't mean that there won't be some who will refuse to accept a person for who they are rather than what they are, but much progress has been made.  What I am hoping to see is a world in which an ordinary person who makes an effort has both the opportunity to play a productive role in society that is well suited to their abilities, and reasonable compensation and social respectability for having done so.
