Russell Brand has aptly identified a key tool used by the One-Percent to silence critics. A variation is found when a average person complains they are dismissed as ignorant, and when a scholar criticizes they are dismissed as an out-of-touch brainiac.
For some reason, their stupidity acquires all power because they fail to see logic. And illogical people are fools, and there are a lot of fools in the world. Gosh, this quote ignites so many thoughts in my head, but idk how to transform them into words.
