Are You an elitist?


Do we see ourselves clearly? How so... or not? Elitist: The belief that certain persons or members of certain classes or groups deserve favored treatment by virtue of their perceived superiority, as in intellect, social status, or financial resources... and ...a person who believes that a system or society should be ruled or dominated by an elite. I have observed that elitist come from all segments of society, at least in America. How so?

    Moonfroth, my elitist friend, who among all the intelligent elitists are best able to manage corporations, publishing houses, governments or anything else? Intelligence is one thing, capability is another. What good is a toilet if it doesn't flush?

    Hello gmwilliams. Interesting.answer. I have a hard time relating to your premise as I applaud success and feel no jealousy for those who have it. An elitist tends to believe they know best...Obama, for example, who has an elitist mentality..
