What We Believe, Part 2: The Problem with Elitism


When someone on TV or other places says that "we" (the People) need to just listen to our "betters", it makes me very very angry. Who the hell do they think they are? They are not our betters. They maybe better at some things than us, but we are also better at other things than them as Mr. Whittle explained in the video I posted above.

Always be mindful when you are talking to someone who believes that OTHERS have a right to govern over you because they know better. How exactly can we qualify that? Or quantify it? How do they know better? What do they know better? If I know better on something do I get to rule over that person instead? You see this is a never ending game. This is a matter of self governance, can people rule themselves? Yes as long as we have a moral baseline and understand that our rights come from a Higher Power (not the Government) we can. There is room for a centralized government, but not to RULE over every aspect of our lives.
