Sniff. It that smoke I smell?
*The most relentlessly elite institution in the world is the Elite 'Ivy League' or equivalent university. They obsessively comb the nation and the world for the 'best and brightest', bring them to a common location where they spend vast tax exempt sums per pupil on enhancing their knowledge, skills and connections, ensuring that most of them will marry each other and breed more elites. They then unleash them on a credential mad world where they possess the best brand. All from institutions that are relentlessly, overwhelmingly 'progressive' and 'for the people'. And despite the obvious and clearly cynical conflict between their words and deeds they get away with it. Talk about having a lot of power.
