You can't fool all the people all the time.
In "Intellectuals and Society" Thomas Sowell quotes T.S. Eliot:
Half of the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don't mean to do harm -- but the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves.
(p.184, Intellectuals and Society, 2011, Basic Books)
Sowell comments - rather charitably:
In many ways, on a whole range of issues, the revealed preference of intellectuals is to gain moral authority -- or, vicariously, political power -- or both, over the rest of society. The desires or interests of the ostensible beneficiaries of that authority or power -- whether the poor, minorities, or criminals in prison -- are seldom allowed to outweigh the more fundamental issue of gaining and maintaining the moral hegemony of the anointed.
