Of course it's hypocritical of her. Social Security isn't a bank account. It's not a retirement account. It's a benefit paid for by future beneficiaries--she was living on the back of a thousand Atlases.
Personally, I think she's a horrible writer even if you divorce her sociopathic ethical outlook from her prose. She wrote stroke books for disaffected adolescents, and that's the best thing you can say about her.
This. Her loathsome worldview would be reason enough to despise her, but the lousiness of her writing is just unforgivable.
