    Oh, you mean that the average Joe feels stupid? Yes, I understand that. The old saying is that if one doesn't know the answer, one doesn't contribute. Better to remain quiet and say nothing than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.

    "Some of these people can't stand the perception of elitism." I think that there is a belief amongst some that if one is smarter, richer, prettier, or whatever, then one is better than others. I don't think one is better than others ever.

    You are so correct regarding this premise. It is mostly envy and jealousy on the part of those who do not possess the same capabilities as those who are highly educated and intelligent. Thank you Sophie for your intelligent and insightful response
