The pathology of liberal eliteness and their belief they are 'educated'.

 Post Brexit and Trump, the 'liberal elite' has been writing articles, having radio and TV discussions, giving sermons (literally) and making speeches in which it has struggled to understand those strange creatures: ordinary people
who voted for Brexit and Trump. The elite is bemused by what drives these people to make perverse decisions about Brexit and Trump. Are they racist, narrow-minded or just stupid? The must be uneducated surely
But let’s do a paradigm shuffle -  explain to ordinary people what drives the liberal elite.
For the he elite persists with some very strange and disturbing views. Are its cogregatiom - although secular they are religious in all but name -  brainwashed, snobbish or just so remote from real life that they do not understand how things work? What is the pathology of liberal eliteness?
Why would anyone support Hillary Clinton — a ruthless, charmless Washington insider or Barack Obama after 8 years his legacy was Trump
Obama he of the beloved pauses to inject gravitas when he is reading from his autocue, now an ex-president he hob nobs with Richard Branson on his yacht and make speeches at half a million and hour.  Thank you Harvard (the self styled 'educated' ones) is this the best you can produce?
In the UK why do lawyers, churchmen, the BBC and, indeed, most so called 'educated' people support the EU — an organization as saturated with smug self-righteousness as it is with corruption; one which created the Euro, which in turn has caused millions of people to be unemployed; an organization which combines a yawning democratic deficit with incompetence over immigration and economic growth? Run by unelected educated bureaucrats

But what ‘educated’ mean today? It doesn’t mean they know a lot about the world. It means they have been injected with the views and assumptions of their teachers. They have been taught by people who themselves have little experience of the real world. They have been indoctrinated with parti pris ( preconceived opinion : prejudice) thinking about how their students should think.
The academic world is overwhelmingly left-wing as are the textbooks.

There is no analysis of counter-arguments. In fact, no data is offered on which a counter–argument could be based. This is not education. It is not teaching children to challenge ideas and think for themselves. This is anti-education: teaching them what they must think. It is as prescriptive as education in the Soviet Union. At least in the Soviet Union, many understood that they should not trust what they were being told.  Remainers assumed that Brexit must equal insularity. It offended their view of themselves as internationalists ie planting themselves above 'them' on mount Moral, yes, the anointed ones, the 'educated'
It’s noticeable that quite a lot of the most original minds, such as George Orwell and Pascal, never went to university.

Let’s try to understand why members of the elite get so cross when others don’t take the same view of Brexit and Trump as they do. It’s partly a sense of entitlement. People talk of a culture of entitlement among those who live on benefits/food stamps, but the elite has its own entitlement culture. They think that because they studied English literature at Durham or Cornell (who produced the sneering Bill Maher)  they understand the world better than a carpenter in Croydon, or a plumber in Des Moines. They think they are superior and therefore their view should prevail. They also think they are morally superior because they hold to the views which they were told were virtuous. Anyone who appears not to subscribe to these views must, of necessity, be a sinner or else appallingly misled by the Daily Mail or Fox News or some other evil force. 

Government Agencies / Bureaucracies at all levels are heavily packed with indoctrinated left leaning manipulators, who in turn are for the most part indoctrinating more followers. School textbooks and curriculum is being written for the purpose of Leftist indoctrination.

The left leaning liberals have an agenda that has nothing to do with teaching children how to think and everything to do with teaching them what to think.

So the liberal consensus go on believing that because the have been 
tutored for years by a teaching community wholly liberal they have the intellectual whip hand.  Studying a Shakespeare Sonnet, or a John Cheever novel
does not make one its travails makes one 'educated'.
