In Praise of Elitism

What is elitism? Or what is the ‘elite’?

Latin ‘eligere‘– to elect. “Eligo” means to choose or elect. Then what does this mean?

The elite are those who are elected into positions of power.

And also —

Elitism is the belief that some people are higher than others.

I then do believe in elitism. However to me, elitism ain’t about who is richer or poorer, it is more about courage, bravery, chutzpah and having the balls and guts to stand up for what you believe in, and having the courage to be tenacious, stubborn, and to *NOT* compromise your core beliefs … no matter what!
