Elitism is the natural consequence of freedom -- under any metric, some will always be superior to others.

For this reason a community centered on egalitarian, non-elitist principles cannot thrive.

This explains among others, phenomena like: why plutocracy is the inevitable result of starting with either democracy or socialism, why corporations with flat organizational structures quickly develop heirarchies, etc.

Needs more thought.
