About the Intelligentsia Part II

Today’s establishment intellectuals receive feedback on two levels.

A.) That which you actually say. The argument you make.

B.) More important, to how they react, is whether you agree or disagree with them. As simple as that.

Whether or not they pay attention to A, depends on B.

If you don’t agree with them, it’s a personal affront. More, it’s an attack on the intellect itself.

The world of the intelligentsia is not an unbiased, coldly objective forum, as advertised. Instead it’s run, controlled, and protected through primal codes of the herd.
