    Elitism can be seen through ethnocentrism and constant jousting between "religious" imperialists of the soul...

    Modernism is a portrayal of cultural and "genetic" elitism eminating from Europe and the United States...  The "master plan" mentality found in urban planning, or even in war ideations of the PNAC neo-conservatives is another illustration of aspects of elitism... 

    But there are others...

    We can recognise that there are people who have superior talent wealth education and so forth. They tend to form an elite in any community.

    When they start to run the society to suit their selfish class or personal interests there is injustice. Teey get round this by pretending and sometimes believing that they are running society for the good of the whole rather than for themselves. It is amazing how their personal interests and those pf society tend to run together.
