In Israel the elite is very controversial. It is a left-wing elite who truly believe they know what is best for the people of Zion.

Even in biblical times, the prophets had problems with the elite among the people. Now, as a result of the war, the left-wing elite is accused of leading Israel into an unrealistic concept, leading to a false understanding of our enemies. The question arises as to what the elite will learn from this after the war.

 

Power groups

The fall of the Soviet Union continues to concern historians and other experts today. A study by David Kotz and Fred Weir (Revolution From Above: The Demise of the Soviet System) concludes that the Soviet Union collapsed not because of popular pressure from below, which could have been suppressed, but mainly because of power calculations of the elites. The Soviet Union’s power groups included the army officers, academics and high-ranking political officials.

One response to “The problem with the elite”

  1. Disciple 1978 says:

    God made the priesthood the elite and they became so busy dealing with every-man’s sin that they became preoccupied with holiness not politics. They were given no land as God was their inheritance. Pagans often change the role of the priest from dealing with the holiness of sinners to affirming the righteousness of sinners. “You will be like God” (Genesis 3:5) is the deception the pagan priest asserts. Rome was in bondage to this deception (it still is) and they turned the early church fathers to it. All religions produce their pagan ruling elites. Today the elites of ideology and philosophy compete with them. Messiah returns as the Servant King whose prime role is his godly priesthood. He trains his servants in this role to rule with him. Rulers that neglect their bible will not be ruling with him. They are supposed to write out their own copy to ensure they know and can follow his ways. Deut 17:18
