  Natural Elites, Intellectuals, and the State
According to his view, states are the outgrowth of natural elites: the natural outcome of voluntary transactions between private property owners is non-egalitarian, hierarchical, and elitist.
This occurred once a single member of the voluntarily acknowledged natural elite was able to insist, despite the opposition of other members of the elite, that all conflicts within a specified territory be brought before him.
How ironic that monarchism was destroyed by the same social forces that kings had first stimulated and enlisted when they began to exclude competing natural authorities from acting as judges: the envy of the common men against their betters, and the desire of the intellectuals for their allegedly deserved place in society.

Elites (Sangheili) - Halopedia - a Wikia wiki
Higher ranked Elites have better combat and tactical skills, the rights to a stronger energy shield with better armor, and the ability to wield special weapons, such as the Energy Sword, a ceremonial weapon that is an external indicator of status, as well as an extremely powerful close-combat weapon.
Elites have good reflexes and dodge most grenades thrown at them, but this behavior can easily be put to your advantage, despite it won't kill them instantly; it will destroy their shield.

The Elites are the only known race permitted to operate starships within the Covenant, though the crews are always a mix of races.
The Elites generally consider humans to be nameless, and resent the fact that humans have assigned the label "Elite" to them, as humans have no standing to be naming things.
Following the betrayal of the Elites, the Arbiter remained in shock and disbelief that the Prophets would turn on them and that the Great Journey was a lie.

 Elites and suppression
Since elites seldom question the goals or procedures of their organisations or professions, "suppression" for them typically is a nonexistent or seldom used category.
Junior professionals and apprentices, in aspiring to elite positions, are thereby encouraged to conform to the prevailing professional standards and practices.
Common to the perspective of all elites is an opposition to activities which potentially expand the avenues for participation by non-elites in decision-making or judgement.

Normally elite support of this kind would lead to policy changes, but on this issue public opposition is so strong that it creates a political stalemate.
As already discussed, 60 percent of the public, compared to 14 percent of elites, think that immigration is a critical threat to the nation.

 ZTO Beware Of The Elites
The elites are an amorphous group of "educated" Zambians, within which three subclasses may be distinguished: the super elites, the professional elites, and the sub-elites.
However, the most vociferous of the three are the professional elites, who at the fringes of political power, are most strident in their demands and criticisms of the ruling elites.
These professional elites, perhaps because of their educational achievements, have an overrated sense of self-importance, believing that only they are best qualified to rule the country.

 Elites
Although Porter attempted to identify labour, intellectual and religious elites in Canada, none of these have been studied as intensively as state or corporate elites and it is difficult to argue that they wield the same degree of power.
The most powerful elites, those who command the greatest resources in Canada today, are the corporate and state elites.
Studies have demonstrated that entrance to these elites is strongly affected by social-class origins, region of birth and residence, ethnic origins and gender; the most powerful decision-making positions in Canada are therefore held by people who do not represent a cross-section of Canadians.

 Mass and elites
The major thesis of this chapter is that elites (not the masses) create the new political and economic institutions in a new society and produce new values that are ultimately accepted by the population.
When I say that elites actively create the dominant ideology (with social values as its core), this does not exclude the use of some preexisting traditions; moreover, in developing the ideology, elites often appeal to the attitudes of their subjects.
The Russian elites, and in the first place, located in Moscow, were able in the 90s not only create a new society but also to contribute a lot to the masses’s political alienation as well as to the increase of asocial behavior and the growth of de classed (lumpen) people in the country.

 Sudan - Urban and National Elites
Most elite southerners were non-Muslims, few spoke Arabic fluently, and they were regarded - and saw themselves, not primarily as a professional or bureaucratic elite, but as a regional one.
The younger, larger generation of the educated elite were not all offspring of the older, smaller educated elite.
Tribal and ethnic elites carried weight in specific localities and might be significant if the states were to achieve substantial autonomy; however, their importance on the national scene was questionable.

 Pareto - The Work - Elites   (Site not responding. Last check: )
When governing or nongoverning elites attempt to close themselves to the influx of newer and more capable elements from the underlying population, when the circulation of elites is impeded, social equilibrium is upset and the social order will decay.
When imperfections in the circulation of govern- ing elites prevent the attainment of such judicious mixtures among the govern- ing, regimes either degenerate into hidebound and ossified bureaucracies in- capable of renewal and adaptation, or into weak regimes of squabbling lawyers and rhetoricians incapable of decisive and forceful action.
Like in the governing elite where things work best when both residues of Class I and Class II are represented, so in the economic order maximum effec- tiveness is attained when both rentiers and speculators are present, each pro- viding a balance by checking the excesses of the other.

 Net2Con: Different kinds of elites (and different kinds of elitism) | NetSquared
Power elites are the traditional decisionmakers, who might also be termed Weberian elites because of their support by the state.
Resource elites are those who have the infrastructure (or the capacity to develop it) to make things possible — be that change or stasis.
I think focusing on these different kinds of elites allows for something closer to Paolo Freire's "cointentional education" in which everyone is a student and liberation is bound up together.

 When Good Elites Go Bad
Moreover, for Judis, the trusted ''guardians of the national interest'' are those captains of industry enlightened enough to embrace the labor and citizens movements that have the ''ability to disrupt the normal pattern of life.'' Granted, thousands of protesters marching in the streets have been and can be a sign of a healthy democracy.
Secondly, in focusing on elites and their subtle effects on policymaking, Judis too often imagines the tail is wagging the dog.
Most of the powerful elite organizations that Judis chronicles have drawn their inspiration from the larger national discourse--from anti-Vietnam War protests to the property-tax revolt of the 1970s.

The elite are the few that have power in society, the masses are the many who do not.
From conquest to the present, small elites have prospered by controlling the land and commanding a ready supply of very cheap labor, leaving the masses in misery.
Moreover, those elites could count on the ready support of the U.S. Hence, for decades they have been able to afford to ignore the needs of the majority and suppress occasional protest from the oppressed.

 ELITES   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Since transition and elite transformation seemed to be parallel processes, it was understandable that sociologists and political scientists of the region started to use elite theory.
The Szelényi and Treiman research project of the mid-nineties proved that elite reproduction was a way of change in the post-communist economy; however, on the more visible terrain of politics, circulation (and not reproduction) occurred among the circles of elite.
Therefore, finally, one can predict another shift in elite research happening in the next ten years: Instead of focusing on elite transformation on national level, as it was the general trend in the 1990s, there will probably be an increasing interest in examining the relationships between the “European elites” and local elite groups.

 Amazon.ca: Revolt Of The Elites: Books: Christopher Lasch   (Site not responding. Last check: )
He decries the usurpation of cultural norms instigated by elites, who rarely venture outside their smug circle of we-know-best-for-you compatriots and who refuse to acknowledge a need for individual responsibility and rather see the average, ordinary working person as a spigot for unending social spending and an unsophisticated inferior.
Modern elites are not anymore connected with their geographical and social background and roots, they have a global vision and ambition, and do not accept any constraints and limits in the pursuance of their egotistical interests, which are basically money oriented.
In "the Revolt of the Elites" Christoper Lasch powerfully and persuasively contends that that the values and attitudes of professional and managerial elites and those of the working classes have dramatically diverged.

 IRC Americas Program | Trinational Elites Map North American Future in "NAFTA Plus"
The elites of the three NAFTA countries (Canada, the United States, and Mexico) have been aggressively moving forward to build a new political and economic entity.
For the trade, manufacturing, and financial elites of Mexico and Canada, NAFTA Plus will likely mean a “porous” border for its products and services, and virtually unrestricted access to the United States, still the largest consumer market in the world.
The elites’ main justification for deepened regional integration is the supposed “resounding success” of NAFTA.

Already after the 1996 election Howard began to disparage, as "political correctness", the cultural agenda followed by every government since Gough Whitlam, with its implicit criticisms of the foundations of the Australian state.
Between 1996 and 2001 there was a battle of sorts between the "elites" and the "ordinary people" over Howard's reshaping of Australia.
In their Christmas stockings the "elites" found a copy of Keith Windschuttle's Fabrication of Aboriginal History, with solid endorsement from the new editorial team at The Australian newspaper.

 Amazon.com: The Revolt of the Elites: And the Betrayal of Democracy: Books: Christopher Lasch   (Site not responding. Last check: )
His fails to see that the true ruling "elites" (those that actually rule) could painlessly embrace a stock catalogue of "social conservative" views while maintaining a status quo of massive wealth redistribution upward which ultimately is more destabilizing to our democratic project than all of the social liberalism of the coasts.
These new elites are a much more dangerous lot, since they operate a government that conspicuously sounds the warning bells of the decline of American society to deflect attention from their organized theft of our national patrimony and personal, economic and social security.
Lasch's analysis of the elites seems to make sense in light of their lack of contact with everyday reality, their lack of respect for common sense and the average person, and their lack of ties to nation and place.

Recently, I served on a kind of visiting committee for one of the elite campuses of The University of California, where every student is required to have at least one science course.
One is that there must be a broad political consensus that pure research in basic science is a common good that must be supported from the public purse.
The second is that the mining and sorting operation I've described must be discarded and replaced by genuine education in science, not just for the scientific elite, but for all the citizens who must form that broad political consensus.
