HAT Forum - "Who are the Elites?"

  • The 519, Room 304 (check screen in lobby) 519 Church Street Toronto, ON, M4Y 2C9 Canada (map)

From Wikipedia:

The term elitism and the pejorative title elitist are sometimes used by people who are not (or, who claim not to be) members of elite organizations. In politics, such terms are often used to disparage a politician's views as out of touch with the interests of the "average Joe". The implication is that the alleged elitist person or group thinks they are better than everyone else, and put themselves before others as a result. The definition of elitist is similar to that of the word "snob".

What is the battle between the elitists and the populists?

Are the elite stifling free speech and freedom of expression?

What is a Conservative elitist? 

Discuss!

If you have the time, plan to stay a little later and continue the discussion in a more social setting over food & drink.
