      and people who are part of the upper echelons of economic hierarchy, or of political organizational hierarchy (all of which gives such individuals greater access to people with influence), are elites.

      Have you ever met or spoken with a president because of your influence? Markos has.

      Sometimes the way people use language provides clues, if you're observant, to how people view things.

      I've always found it telling when people involved in party organizations refer to "their voters" or "their base" or "their constituents" as if a possession. It wouldn't be significant if the voters were actually treated as the ruling class. But one would be a fool to not understand this isn't the reality.
