Nobody Reads: Ben Carson on Elitism

Nobody ReadsBen Carson one nation

Ben Carson, talks about the “elites” (Like Obama) who are educated in our highest universities, and why they are so screwed up:

From One Nation, (p.27)

Elitism on campus, which had previously been defined by wealth, was not defined by identification with the downtrodden people in society and a determination to use one’s superior education and compassion to help them. As the generation of elites grew up, they began to occupy position of importance in society, becoming college professors and administrators national television producers, business managers, and politicians. Even though many still enjoyed the fruits of economic prosperity, they continued to identify with those people they considered to be oppressed by the system.

The makeup of today’s elite class is psychologically and sociologically more complex than what I have just presented, but its development in the Ivy Leagues of the 1960s can explain the dichotomy between what the wealthy members of this class say and what they do. For the most part, they are incapable of seeing any hypocrisy in their own lives while examine with a microscope every facet of their perceived opponents lives. They are very happy to give away other people’s money, but guard their own purse strings possessively. The sad thing is that they have become so wise in their own eyes that they have lost objectivity, thus frequently rendering themselves quit useless when t comes to truly improving the lot of the downtrodden in our society.
