Thank you! You articulated how I’ve been feeling and named the people who I think are responsible for the demise of true progressive growth. This smugness is only turning off ordinary people and is targeted toward a high income elitist. Perhaps this is where the advertising money is.
The PhD is the issue! The progressives lost because we thought we were smarter than them. In reality they’re as smart as we are and if not, better at execution of a plan and strategy.
