However, if you find yourself being dished up lavish amounts of elitism, it seems there are two instinctual responses. You can join in the affirming rounds of high-fives and enter in the elite circles or you can repulsively turn your back in defiance.
The challenge of humility introduces a third option. Just because someone is being elitist does not mean they don't have something valid and important to contribute. In humility you are tasked with the responsibility to "de-elite-ify" and sift out the gold from the river bed.
Thanks Milan, for the quote and the stimulating conversation.
