“Carnival Of The Elitist Bastards” request for submissions
Gathering posts for a brand-new Blog Carnival, Dana at En Tequila Es Verdad says; “Gather ‘Round, Ye Elitist Bastards”…
…It’s time we took the word “elite” back… I think it’s time for the masses to aspire to some of that vaunted wisdom rather than trying to flatten the bell curve with a sledgehammer.
I think it’s time we stop letting our culture celebrate willful ignorance and start promoting genius instead.
Well yeah… I remember when creative and scientific genius was more celebrated than it is today. When Einstein and Salk were national heroes and national magazines actually engaged in fairly decent journalism on science and the arts. I’m getting pretty tired of cultivated hatred for People Who Actually Know What They’re Talking About. Check out Dana’s post and consider participating – this is going to be fun! (So much material to work with)
