Elitism is an attitude or belief in one's superiority based solely on membership in a particular group or community. Elitism can be seen, for example, in the delusion that being a celebrity or a gatekeeper of the mainstream news media in itself imparts sufficient wisdom to justify airing one's personal opinion on an issue.

During his ministry Jesus attacked the religious elitism of the Saduccees and the Pharisees which led them to manipulate the ruling Roman governor into executing this populist upstart. Because it is based in the values of Christianity, conservatism has an ambition to be populist, unlike liberalism, in which the beliefs of the intellectual elitists make them superior to the public.

Some of the very first elitists were our founding fathers, who set up universities to train "elitists" to better lead the country.

Notable elitists include:

  1. Thomas Jefferson
  2. Al Gore
  3. Barack Hussein Obama
  4. Hillary Clinton
  5. Franklin Delano Roosevelt
  6. Marie Antoinette
