THE ARROGANT INTELLECTUAL ELITE

First question: Is my shadow projecting out my nature upon those I am about to criticize? Could be, but if so, I like the rest of us, don’t see it. You are the judge of that.

The Intellectual Elite are those who believe they are better prepared to handle the truth than the “serfs”, you and me.

Who are they? They are particularly found in our government, and most prominently in the Pentagon. They are convinced, as was the Colonel in “A Few Good Men”, that we, the serfs, “Can’t handle the truth”. (That line was an ad lib by Jack Nicholson).
