Holden cared about people though. That’s why so many people love the book. He hated people like Trump. And, most importantly, he was not a bully. He saw the world being run by people like Trump at the expense of everyone else. Please remember or reread the book. Salinger probably hated Trump. Everything I’ve ever read about Salinger points to that. Holden as described in the book would have hated Trump.
RE: “Catcher in the Rye”. LOL. It’s true the teenager complained a lot but he did introduce me to “lemon coke”. Just what my stomach needed. An acid drink like Coca Cola, given more acid by adding a slice of lemon to it! 🙂
