Capitol Campus: Seed-Bed For Neo-Nazi Elitism? by Roger Nielsen There is a very dangerous current of Elitism circulating at Capitol Campus. It is widespread. Many students here are going to college to use their degrees as barriers between themselves and those who are less fortunate, those who couldn’t come. Why is this happening? Perhaps it is because many of those who are here are from lower-middle class homes, or middle-middle class homes. They want a piece of the action, and education has flamed the fires of am bition. Many of these college Elitists learned these things from profes sors here. The majority of the facul ty are ostentatious status-seekers. They are not above the rat-race; they have created their own little rat-race right here. If we want to talk about the failures of our educational sys tem, here is one example. At any rate, the majority of stu dents here do not see themselves as one of the “people”, of the “public”, of the “masses”. Is this feeling natural? Baseball players, actors, teachers, politicians, servicemen, all see themselves as separate and apart from the public. They fail to realize that they are the “people”. To inflict injury upon the “people”, is to inflict injury upon yourself. Another reason that many students see themselves as elite is because they possess the ability to think, to analize, to revolt against, to question. True, the greatest majority of the „human race does not question. They have their habits, customs, traditions governments, religions, and they don’t question them.

It is the duty of these academic Elitists to encourage revolt among the people. These Elitists may feel an obligation to “take care” of the people, only in a moral manner. This idea, is of course what has screwed up the human race. Instead of en couraging people to think indepen dently, to neutralize social pressures, our group of Elitists would prefer to control the people, they still want to separate themselves, and power and control is a good way to accomplish this. So our group of Elitists will become lawyers, professors, politic ians, businessmen and social workers. They will do their best to keep the people in darkness; they will not at tempt to encourage revolt, the ques tioning process. The Elitists had better take a look at themselves; they are leading us to another Neo-Nazi regime. Spiro Agnew recently called for a new wave of intellectual Elitism. He decries students who attempt to solve social problems. He refers to see a great return to the ivory tower; he seeks an end to the “relevant educa tion”, in his own words. He does not have to worry. Our students are do ing this of their own free will. If they chose to reverse this trend, they could show the “people” how to think for themselves. We would then have no need for churches, armies, rigidly-run schools, contem ptuous social workers, caste systems, master-slave relationships, racism, and imperialism. Freedom and unity is the ultimate destiny of the human race. But our Elitists are holding us back. Sports: tony McGovern Letters to the Editor ATTENTION!
