I’m tired of literary elitism

I am almost tired of literary elitism and thus turned to cultural studies and sociology, thinking they deal with hard hitting realities. But I was disheartened by the pretentiousness of the people in these fields, how they use theories to justify things that they do wrong. I cannot stand this bullshit anymore and would really like to meet some genuine people who actually care about others. Does this sound like an impossible task?

Dear Cellar Door,

I know what you mean and how you feel. I’m tired of literary elitism, too. I do not like academism so much. Many academic people are talking bullshit. But some people I have met at several universities are nice people who are interesting in many ways. Don’t judge a book by its cover, as they say. Be patient. Don’t expect to meet genuine people. Try to find genuineness in people.
