If we are going to play this depraved game, then I'll roll the dice and start by arguing that the self-appointed "intellectual elite" are a
sub-species. Most of them contribute nothing to society at all, except devising ways in order to confiscate goods and services from those with
integrity and honor. Unable to deal with all of life's problems and instead of choosing to be honorable themselves, they latch on to their woeful
inadequacies forming secret societies, petty cliques and syndicates. Deem themselves superior (see:
) and start doing their dark-works dealing in extortion and deceit.
It's just like nationalism. It's a large group of people that sit around and do nothing, contribute nothing of earnest to society, and choose to pat
their backs for something their ancestors "of the same class" accomplished. It's no different than a bunch of blue-collar drunks sitting at a bar,
throwing spit at each other arguing how America "won the world war", how "they" are the baddest. Did these two drunks contribute anything to the "war
effort"? No they didn't. They are just a couple of drunks latching on to past accomplishments like ticks. They never move on, they just bicker and
extort the accomplishments of their forebears.
The "intellectual elite" are much the same. So many of them today accomplish absolutely nothing. They create rackets in colleges across America,
lecturing their opinions and ideologies to young students who give them $30,000 a year to listen to them preach.
Some of the brightest minds the world has ever seen never really meshed well with the "self-appointed high-society". Thomas Edison, Ben Franklin, and
Einstein just to name a few. Thankfully they didn't let the husks of mechanized education get them down, because they went on to accomplish great
works. Regardless if their teachers said they sucked
Does this apply to all colleges, and all those in education? Obviously not. But it does apply to those who think they're superior, and you know who
you are. We know who you are, too.
