#9: In Defense of Snobs

We are away from the studio this week while Danielle moves and José does random things on the stoop of his building. So we’ve opened opened up the Think Hard vault to bring you this classic. Stay tuned for our new episode coming out in two weeks.

Are snobs just obnoxious, self-righteous jerks, or do they contribute something of value to society? José argues that snobs are the protectors of culture and ought to be defended. Snobs save us from the faceless demands of a watered down marketplace and set a standard for the human experience. Danielle is skeptical, and wonders if snobbery is an expression of classist myopia, confusing personal preferences for objective standards.
