I read this article from the LA Times not long ago and it got me thinking on elitism nowadays. I come from an extremely elitist country and I believe that it is so because it lacks own true identity. But everything is associated with success and failure. Elitism is not only about wealth. It also compares culture, wisdom, skills and any other thing that can be measured, compared and competed. I grew up living in a society that expected me to be the best. Always competing and comparing against others my possessions, knowledge and whatnot. As I grew up I thought differently and I realised that if I were to succeed it was because of personal satisfaction than because of what others were expecting. What's your point of view regarding elitism? Do you live in an elitist society? Do you consider yourself an elitist? If yes, do you agree with the fact that it is considered as one of type of discrimination?
