    Do you know what anti-intellectualism is and its role in promoting citizen apathy?  Thoughts?

    I have been researching weapons the government uses to create deception including control systems as the media entity,  corporations, and religion. What are your thoughts?

    Intellectualism in the form of "let the people with multiple degrees make all the decisions" is an elitism - and I've never heard of an elite say they shouldn't have the job.
    Much of the grass roots backlash from Brexit to Trump's support is the average population revolting against a rule of unaccountable elites, passing administrative laws outside of the legislature and telling the average person your concerns about the impact of our policies are irrelevant, shut up you stupid idiots, we know better.
