Koch Binge

The Brutal Battle That Tore Apart America's Most Powerful Family
This long read on the Koch brothers (FYI, there are four, not two) explains a lot.  

If Charles and David would see a therapist we could all be so much happier.
Fred rarely displayed affection toward his sons, as if doing so might breed weakness in them. "Fred was just a very stiff, calculated businessman," Chapple said. "I don't mean this in a critical way, but his interest was not in the kids, other than the fact that he wanted them well educated." He was not the kind of dad who played catch; he was the type of father, one Koch relative recalled, who taught his children to swim by throwing them into the pool and walking away. "He ruled the boys with an iron fist."
