We agree that the matter is subjective. But I don't see how stating my belief that something is right or wrong makes me an "elitist." Of course I'm used to that tag as a veteran of many political campaigns. Both sides always use the label for the other.
I'll give you an example of a popular media guy who's guilty of this.
Harken back to the Augusta Country Club controversy about whether they should admit female members. This comes up from time to time when the Masters Golf event comes around. Jim Rome said on his radio show that "they ought to admit females because it's the right thing to do."
Well who's he to tell that club what's the right thing to do? He is an elitist that thinks that he knows better than a bunch of hicks from South Carolina.
