"No one person is greater than another."
I have been accused many times of being an elitist, of making others feel like their existence does not even matter when in my presence. I have been called a spirit crusher, and one who devours the earth. Honestly, I think this kind of perception of me is more a reflection of the insecurities of others than an egotisitcal view I have of myself. I have never once devalued another human being for being unable to "measure up". I devalue those who devalue themselves. I condemn those who are capable of wisdom, understanding, and enlightenment, but who choose to throw that away for the pursuit of idiocy. I say inferiority is a choice, and if that is a choice you have made for yourself, deal with it.
I read a lot. I think a lot. I know a little. If you ask me for my opinion, I will give it to you honestly and bluntly; I will tell you what I think rather than what you want to hear. I will not patronize, and I will not reduce myself in any way by bending to a common or accepted ideology. You want to condemn me as an elitist for doing so? Go ahead.
