when one's political philosophy revolves around the belief that they know better than you do as to what's best for you, they have to claim superior intelligence
that myth also is the source of their hatred for capitalism--libs know they are smart and talented even if the marketplace doesn't value their worth wage wise nearly that high
hence their butt hurt whining about "corporations"

"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
