They Both Think They Know Everything

a: Modern liberal intelligentsia ~
b: roman catholic clergy

What: A class of cloistered, unaccountable highly ideologically biased intellectuals. The general attitude of this class, group, this social construct(to use their language)is that they embody liberal ideals, the best of Western tradition, or at least the modern tradition. What are these ideas and ideal? Those that have been inherited from the Enlightenment. What are those? Science or the scientific process, rationality, the general belief that there is no mystery in the world or that all mysteries can and will be solved. This is a highly ideological group of people. The only class of this type, in Europe anyway, is the Roman Catholic Clergy. This is also a group of highly educated and uncountable intellectuals who have been charged with propagating European Christian thought and beliefs. The unity is that these groups both believe things that are highly questionable, yet as a rule, they are not strictly accountable for what the believe and teach, because there are some many others who believe the same thing. They are a power themselves.
