Elitism is Irony
What is elitism?
Elitism is a privileged club for all those eternally surviving on the charity of the rest providing and serving the self-proclaimed Royals, aristocrats and so-called celebrities exhibiting pomp and pageantry at ordinary people’s expense.
Right from emergence until their last breath, the elitists have no shame in leading a lifestyle that is claimed as entitlement using and abusing anyone for power, fame and fortune.
The glittering tiara and fineries paid for by the average citizens struggling to make ends meet with their below average income are in fact the elitists benefactors and yet the providers are assigned different class such as the working class, lower class, middle class, the upper middle class while placing the beneficiaries i.e. the elitists as the rich class and sophisticated in society.
The elitists get it wrong time and time again. What they fail to understand is superiority nothing more than self-consolation in denial of insecurity which is a personality disorder arising from inadequacy and inferior feelings lacking in self-esteem and satisfaction in life. The idea of elitism projected in exclusivity and selectivity is a self-defeating purpose rooted in individual interests and personal gains depleting others of their hard earned savings. The taxes paid in the hope to be reinvested in their lives in creating better jobs for them, affordable health care and education besides retirement without having to live at anyone’s mercy are wasted in lavish display.
The ordinary people paid taxes are generously expended on the hyped Royal weddings and maintenance of Royal status. Again, the irony is the Royal wedding using public money cost British pounds 84 million as per official disclosure though the unofficial amount could be lot higher. The elitists’ controlled media highlighting some wedding gifts directed to select charities as extraordinary gesture in itself is peculiar. Any down to earth Samaritans would have promptly declined public bankrolled expenditure on the wedding urging not to squander people’s money on private extravaganza. Such demeanor would have exemplified genuine care and concern for people forced to foot the bill on elitists private affair.
What else does elitism entail?
While occupying the public funded highest office, the occupants draining treasury on family vacations ranging from African safari costing a whopping $100 million to misusing tax payers afforded Air force One for shopping spree to Paris with teenage daughters and close friends when the nation’s 45 million families denied food stamps and unemployment benefits during tough economic times branding them as welfare recipients alongside justifying elitism right to splurge public tax money.
The elitists glamor and glitz defined as modernism premised on generational dependency on public financial support amassing wealth through illegitimate means and authority by no measure admirable.
Anything assumed and seized exploiting others opportunity and contributions reflects life lived as opportunists in society. Royalty proved a major liability along with celebrity worship ad nauseam is a persistent effort to subvert reality despite unsustainable environment appropriately attracting public ire and reproach.
Modern era retaining medieval monarchy amid boasting democracy is elitism in constant irony.
