"Peasants and the Dark Path"

Reader comment on item: The Folly of the Intellectuals

Submitted by Billy Rae (United States), Aug 16, 2020 at 13:17

"Intellectuals are taking us down a dark path;" it's true that they are taking many down such a path, but not the peasants. We see these intellectuals for what they are; a self-anointed "aristocracy with no clothes." The self-anointed are amusing as they "nakedly parade around" claiming their status gives them the right to be believed while unaware of their "state of dress" before the public. Their self-righteous, Utopian beliefs, would be laughable were it not for the damage they have inflicted on our country's Institutions, Middle Class, and widely held Judeo-Christian values.
