I dislike Trump. A lot. Dislike so much about him... and yet I dislike so many of the elites I meet in academia even more. Much more. Because they judge me as they judge my friends and family for not being college-educated urban cosmopolitans.
Example: I was recently insulted (outright insulted) for saying I do not like cities. I prefer isolation and quiet. It's not a rejection of anyone, it's a need for quiet.
"You'll never get ahead if you don't learn to love cities. Only hicks love the country."
Then let me be a hick.
