    Most people respect highly educated & successful people more than the average run of the mill Joe &/or Josephina.  Powerful, educated, & successful people garner respect & admiration.  They have an enviable lifestyle w/o struggle or worry.  They can provide for the basic needs & beyond.  They have access to the very best life imagined.

    Powerful, educated, & successful people have access to more people & relationships.  They also have networks to better opportunities for themselves & particularly their children.   They have avenues that the average person will never have.  Powerful, educated, & successful people are those who control & call the societal shots.  They set the agendas which others follow.

    Powerful, educated, & successful people are the adult equivalent of the cool, popular kids in high school.  They are also considered to be the A-A+ students in adulthood.  They are the crème de la crème- the BEST of THE BEST.  They are considered to be deities in American/Western culture & society.   Yes, powerful, educated, & successful people are accorded more respect & that is the way they should be.  They made sacrifices & worked smart for their position.

      To handle the power differential, one would need to be reverent? Yes, they would have much better networks; and they would come into contact with a greater number of opportunities.
