We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
“Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don't mean to do harm; but the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves.” ― T.S. Eliot
I like the distinction between those who do things and those who say things. The main difference between those two groups of people is that those who do are generally impacted by their mistakes (mistakes are the greatest teacher) and so they are more likely to learn while those who talk are not.
They have a mental illness or deficiency. In other words they are crazy and don't realize it. Most politicians and elite are infected with the same mental illness. Unlike the grifters and scammers some of whom are politicians (the Clintons) and others sell cars or aluminum siding. They are simple dishonest and without scruples and will do anything to get your money. Personally I prefer the grifters I know who and what they are and they are much easier to deal with. But the crazy liberal politicians are much more dangerous.
German President Booed, Attacked; Claims "The People Are The Problem, Not The Elites...
Actually, step one would be to ask if the soi-disant elite had ever held a position where had to meed payroll or did not get paid him/herself. Granted, there are some exceptions. However, for those such as teachers, social workers, etc., the issue then becomes very much: what did you do today that REALLY benefited your students, clients, etc.
It's the failure to do physical work that is the most dangerous.
Anyone who has completed some physical project, from swapping out a light switch to building a sky scraper knows, from deep in his heart to his scarred hands and sore feet that
-everything takes longer and costs more.
-the part does not fit no matter what the manual says.
-whatever can go wrong, will go wrong.
Or, as the great Berra said: "In theory, theory and practice are the same, in practice they are not".
Our book-learned elites have a clear theoretical image of their carefully planned new idea or process being quickly, efficiently, honestly and inexpensively implemented. In practice, Murphy, Curly Moe and Larry, the Marx brothers, McAuslan and Claude the ADHD alcoholic labourer actually implement it.

perhaps we need a new elite?
two problems, though: first, they will self-nominate, and second, who is "we"?
