What explains the idiocy of the liberal elite? It’s their education

Enough! Enough! For months, the so-called liberal elite has been writing articles, having radio and TV discussions, giving sermons (literally) and making speeches in which it has struggled to understand those strange creatures: ordinary people.

The elite is bemused by what drives these people to make perverse decisions about Brexit and Trump. Are they racist, narrow-minded or just stupid? Whatever the reason, ordinary people have frankly been a disappointment.

Time, ladies and gentlemen, please! Instead, let’s do the opposite. Let’s try to explain to ordinary people what drives the liberal elite. The elite persists with some very strange and disturbing views. Are its members brainwashed, snobbish or just so remote from real life that they do not understand how things work? What is the pathology of liberal eliteness?

    Imagine borrowing large sums of money to get propagandized for years by left wingers and gain neither knowledge or skills — that’s today’s universities.

    I am not entirely sure that “education” means what it did a few decades ago. PC indoctrination, a weirdly revisionist approach to history, writing as a haphazard form of “communication” are all staples of the public school system. By the time the kids get to university they have learned few facts and fewer skills. (Looking at what Miss Shepherd was teaching by way of grammar reminded me of grade 5.)

    What “education” has become is a twelve year course in fitting in and behaving appropriately. Fail at that and you get a “diagnosis” and a prescription. God help you if you are a boy.

    And the saddest part is that this “education” followed by a studies degree trains you for nothing. The robots and low grade AI will eat your lunch. But you’ll know how to vote correctly and signal your virtue.

    How bad is it? I had a Millennial twerp tell me that businesses should hire Millennials “because we know how to use Google”. And he was deadly serious. Oh God…

    So what is the explanation for all the evil so-called elite old fart EU executives spouting their batshit crazy day after day. They would not have been indoctrinated as much or if at all like the young people of today. How does one explain Hillary or Ozero’s insanity? It can’t be all be blamed on their education.

    I have millennial victims of film school denigrating the old school way of creating three dimensional objects only to spend three days designing a CnC file then ordering a shaping run only to have the entire job ruined by his failure to allow for thickness of material. he designed in exact 2D the third couldn’t be rendered on his monitor so he didn’t bother with it. Mean while, old school will be ready for paint tomorrow. I think I,m going to start bellowing at him like foghorn leghorn
