I gather I am not supposed to like the "elites." OK - I'm on board for that. "Elites" doesn't sound good going in. Damn "elites" - who needs 'em anyway, with their superior airs and their . . . well, God knows what else they have or do. But I'm wondering - just who ARE these "elites" everyone seem so bent on vilifying? And exactly what is it about them that MAKES them "elites"? Would anyone care to define them for me? Give me some examples of people you feel are objectionable "elites." And then, more importantly, let's discuss WHY you feel they fit the description. What is it about the people you might nominate as "elites" (or about all "elites" in general, for that matter), that makes them so despicable?
