Egalitarian mythos, reverse snobbery

https://bonald.wordpress.com/2015/09/24/the-problem-of-egalitarian-superiority/

It is.

The secret to egalitarianism’s success is that the superior people have been converted to egalitarianism.  They can’t straight-up admit this, of course, since the content of their creed is that there are no superior people, or at least that it has little connection to social power.  On the other hand, they don’t try very hard to deny something so gratifying to their egos.  Officially, IQ doesn’t measure anything, but they make sure you know that theirs are higher than the conservatives’.  Marriage is officially oppressive, but they like to remind us that they beat us on avoiding divorce and unwed pregnancy.  These claims are all more-or-less true.  Liberals dominate every profession because they are by-and-large superior…..

It’s counter-signalling snob. Reverse snobbery. And it’s entirely based on social power, which is inherited (this is why they deny HBD).

I’m too smart to believe in IQ people.

I inherit furniture but throw it out to buy Ikea.

I’ll get an internship I don’t need to be paid for by middle-class secondary school connections but I’ll go to University and treat it like a Booze Cruise.

I can afford to take a Gap Yah on my parent’s savings. You aren’t really human until you travel.

We don’t hate Europe, we love Eurotrash! Our own white trash, however….

Every ism is valid but classism is just silly, what’s with the chip on your shoulder?

They get to tell themselves they earned their privilege. And it’s permanent (nope!)…

Boy, are they in for a shock.

When will this country waterboard the socialists with their own champers?

If we’re all equal, they deserve their position and nobody can drag them down.
