On Intellectuals Who Philosophize Like Zeus

There exists a category of intellectuals who think that they are the world’s ultimate repository of reason and morality. They are so convinced of their intelligence that they think that the solutions that they prescribe for the world’s problems are always correct and must be accepted by all. These intellectuals remind me of the Homeric god Zeus who is also convinced of his omniscience and omnipotence, and keeps coming up with new ideas which, instead of doing any good, cause massive chaos in all the three realms.
