One central characteristic of the woke lunacy is that they, as the further left always have, identify themselves as being superior to the common people.
Why is that? Or on what grounds do they believe that?
I guess there might be four main fundamental notions in support of that (mis)conception:
- Formal education (college degree and more)
- Being an intellectual, as verified by choice of subject / profession
- Being part of an "Avantgarde"
- Acting on the moral high ground
Now what is to be said about those notions?
Let us assume for a moment that a higher formal degree of education does indeed justify the presumption the person is smarter / more intelligent / more knowledgable.
(Of course, we should doubt that idea, as we know that much of that "education" is really just indoctrination, which makes people lose common sense and wisdom that they might have inherited from their family surrounding.)
Still people are equal under the law, have identical individual rights, ...
