ELITISM
is the belief or attitude that those individuals who are considered members of the elite ó a select group of people with outstanding personal abilities, intellect, wealth, specialized training or experience, or other distinctive attributes ó are those whose views on a matter are to be taken the most seriously or carry the most weight or those who view their own views as so; whose views and/or actions are most likely to be constructive to society as a whole; or whose extraordinary skills, abilities or wisdom render them especially fit to govern.

[1] Alternatively, the term elitism may be used to describe a situation in which power is concentrated in the hands of the elite. Those opposed to elitism are considered supporters of anti-elitism, populism or the political theory of pluralism. Elite theory is the sociological or political science analysis of elite influence in society - elite theorists regard pluralism as a utopian ideal.

Elitism may also refer to situations in which an elite individual assumes special privileges and responsibilities in the hope that this arrangement will benefit humanity or themselves. At times, elitism is closely related to social class and what sociologists call social stratification. Members of the upper classes are sometimes, though inaccurately, known as the social elite. The term elitism is also sometimes used to denote situations in which a group of people claiming to possess high abilities or simply an in-group or cadre grant themselves extra privileges at the expense of others. This form of elitism may be described as discrimination.

YOYO, I had suggested "political correctness". My husband had sent me this a week ago and thought maybe you would like it:

Sometimes you are encouraged about our country's future when you see something like this. Specifically, there is an annual contest at Texas A&M University calling for the most appropriate definition of a contemporary term. This year's term was:

"Political Correctness."

The winner wrote:

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

Thank you so much everyone!!!

I will finish the article by the end of this month. I was only planning to include 5 or 6 words in my article, but with all your suggestions, I may have to rethink it.
I also have to remember who is going to be reading it. If I really want to get my point across, I have to keep it somewhat simple and easy to read, otherwise it may become overwhelming, or too long to read and people won't bother.

You have given me so many choices, I've got my work cut out for me, because obviously I can't use them all.

Keep them coming if you can, because the way I procrastinate, I probably won't finish the final draft until 2 days before the end of the month. emoticon

I thank you again for all the great suggestions. Have a great day everyone!

Yes Darlene, as in what Rahm Emanuel said, "You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before."

To me that is Un-American! To just use a situation, real or fake, to push through your agenda using fear and scare tactics. Here they say Republicans do that, but they are the pros at it.

Hi. "Crises" is a word I haven't heard mentioned to the extent it is these days.
I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for. love, Darlene

A new one for me was "statist", but I was hearing that among conservatives, not in the media. But I've just started Levin's book, "Liberty and Tyranny" and it's explained in the very first chapter. Progressive is the other one I was thinking of, which someone else mentioned -- it sounds like such a positive word, but in the case of recent history and politics, it's not.

I don't know if this falls into the context of your article, but "choice" is another one. Sounds good, but what it really means is life or murder.

SP Conserv/Repub. friends,
I need your help!

I am putting together an article for our companies monthly newsletter. I am basically coping/pasting words from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary of words that get thrown around by the media, especially FOX NEWS.(This is a good thing, but if you don't know what they mean, it's hard to stay interested in a report or opinion piece).

Many people I work with seem to not care ,or don't know at the drop of a hat, what these words actually mean. I thought if they actually see them in print and can compare the definations, it may spark an interest for some to actually care about where our government is leading us. And would become active, or at the very least, concerned and thought provoked.

Here is what I have so far:
Freedom
Socialism
Marxism
Totalitarianism

I know there are one or two more that I just cant think of right now. Please post any you think I should include and when finished, I'll post the article here.

Thanks,
YoYo
