If we need a higher class, an elite, let us have it. But let it be based on merit, on outstanding contributions or services, not on the accidents of birth, position, money--and let its members be themselves, not labelled with gaudy titles which make spineless people fawn like sycophants in their presence. In this Aquarian age, archaic hereditary dressed-up aristocracies posturing theatrically have no place.
