And the man who is arrogant belittles his victim. For arrogance is doing and saying things which bring shame to the victim, not in order that something may come out of it for the doer other than the mere fact it happened, but so that he may get pleasure. … The cause of the pleasure enjoyed by those who are arrogant is that they think that in doing ill they are themselves very much superior. That is why the young and the wealthy are arrogant. For they think that in being arrogant they are superior.
Aristotle (384-322 BC) Greek philosopher
Rhetoric, Book 2, ch. 2 (1378b23-29)

they think they have better genes than us. they had a good life, giving them more epigenetic potential. then in prideful arrogant ignorance of this, they presume to be intrinsically better, rather than just better augmented by experience, then proceed to use this to deny others good experience on the basis they have bad genes that good experiences would be wasted on. ... and yet you still vote for them? why did you #votetory ???

omg, the outrageous irony. that these two can chirp so well, so positively about e.g. martin luther king's tenet of content of character, not by colour of skin, and then at same time be so completely oblivious to their own naive realism, presuming their "concrete" truth and facts are "known". i'm too hot-headed shocked by it to offer them a calm invite to introspect on that point, to have a laugh at the irony.

i'm not sure what they're saying will do well for undoing the opposame, n seems more prone to feed into the regressive compassionless ignorant bigotry and casual supremacy (as unfortunately have all calls against SJWs become tainted with). presumes to know, peddles the generalisations, oblivious to doing so, n they carry on rumbling on as if the generalisations are known. that's how it looks to me. a pair of arrogant ignorants, chirping in their echo chamber.

dis-je en moi-même . Rien de tel que l'arrogance pour tromper la honte.
Je tendis mon bras et posai ma main sur sa joue.
