Why do I keep hearing these stupid arguments against intellectual elitism?

Humanity's capacity for intelligence and reason is the most important distinction between us and God's other creations.

Fish gotta swim, birds gotta fly, humans are supposed to think.

Is the dumbing down of our collective median level of intelligence really cultivating a superior society? A sustainable on?

The ring masters and ring leaders prey upon our ignorance and fear. Their divisiveness is the root of our societal dysfunction.

We are distracted and dulled by modern day bread and circuses - tabloid journalism, sensationalism in all forms, the cult of celebrity, etc..

In the mean time class warfare, environmental destruction, social injustice, genocide, a decaying infrastructure, declining public education, and all other manner of additional atrocities rage on..

It doesn't seem that our lower, primal nature is gonna save the world. Maybe we should give our intelligence and capacity for reason a chance..
