Everyone is a snob.

Poorer folk are snobby about the things wealthier folk like. Wealthier folk are snobby about things that poor folks like. The Janus-faced middle class have their own issues.

It's all just rationalizing.

But the real sin of snobbery is reserved for intellectuals and elites who believe their value as a person is higher than everyone else's.

That is rarely if ever true. A garbage man provides a far more useful service to humanity than 99% of all elites/intellectuals.

Actually that's unfair. A garbage man is a more useful member of society than 85% of conservative elites and 99% of liberal elites/intellectuals.

Let's face it conservative elites tend to accomplish things like job creation via businesses/industry and liberal elites tend to be academics (and lazy/biased journalists).

As the old adage goes, those who can, do. Those who can't, teach.

Am I being snobby? Why yes, yes I am. But I have little tolerance for these inflated intellectual egos that seem to believe their hot air opinions bring more to our culture than the police man who keeps us safe so our culture can persevere.

Just had to get that off my chest.
