H.E.—Dormant, But Now Awake (my hate ethos)

Fucking David Brooks actually wrote the following in a widely read newspaper:

I’d say today’s meritocratic elites achieve and preserve their status not mainly by being corrupt but mainly by being ambitious and disciplined. They raise their kids in organized families. They spend enormous amounts of money and time on enrichment. They work much longer hours than people down the income scale, driving their kids to piano lessons and then taking part in conference calls from the waiting room.

from Why Our Elites Stink (which means they don't really stink I just wanted to say they stink in the headline of my insipid editorial to get people to read it and conclude as I have that our elites are wonderful and simply lack the courage to accept how fantastically wonderful they are...David Brooks pauses to wipe mouth and clean his glasses...)
