Elite Insults

The term "elite" has been recently used a lot as a political insult. One example of throwing this term around would be the Conservative party. They have used it as a synonym for "bad." However, we cannot live in a society without elites. We need to recognize that a society cannot work without elites, people who know how to do things that we don't. After we do just that, we will know how to make Canada a better place to live in.
The elites are on a roll these days.

  3. Sorry, but your definitely of elite seems to be a bit out of touch. In the context it should be used in (i.e.: elitist) we can certainly do without the elites of society and survive just fine, even thrive.
