How can a society at the same time be demotic and believe in meritocracy?
I hated the phrase "the most useless segment of society." Useless for what? Useless to whom? Apparently the writer's grandest idea of virtue and nobility is to be a utensil in someone's toolkit...
And does the writer really believe that journalists, politicians, and professors are less intelligent or "virtuous" (however defined) than your average everyday hoodlum?
