Intellectual arrogance is harmful in the long runThey speak good English. They write ornamental English. They are called for discussion on every issue. They start thinking they know everything. Some people are awe-struck by their fluent English speaking and ornamental English writing.
Eventually they become arrogant. They start thinking that they are the repositories of all information and knowledge. People would follow their dictum. They can't imagine that other people may know something. They can't think that other people can also think and decide. And their decision may not corroborate the decision of those English-speakers. If someone dares to challenge their views, they gang up and start punishing the unfortunate person.
Nowadays, I notice that such intellectually arrogant people are trying to dominate the Forum section of ISC in different ways. They utter objectionable words about those persons whom they don't like and some Editors encourage them. These people are ganging up against some unfortunate Members whose world-view is a little bit different.
Those intellectually arrogant people must remember that such arrogance is harmful in the long run. They must also remember that English speaking and writing don't have any direct relationship with the education and acquiring knowledge. Finally, they must also remember that other people also have thinking ability and decision-making ability. Finally, these arrogant must learn that some people don't bother about their views and their punitive measures.
