I miss non political elitism in WSO - What happened to this place?
Ever since leaving IB long ago I have relied upon WSO to remain tether to the industry. I prefer to lurk in the shadows but sometimes I will throw my worthless opinions across the bows.
One thing I miss a lot about old WSO is the non-political elitism that was prominent around the Obama years. We were able to bicker over the prestige ladder, the best suitcases, why you would kill yourself if Jeffries didnt make you an offer, how non-targets have a specific stench to them, and why there was only one borough in NYC, and it was called Murray Hill. It was light hearted and so very funny, because there is ultimately something really fucking funny about elitism. It is the same reason I always smiled when my friends at college called me a GDI with disgust; its just sometimes really funny to separate people into arbitrary boxes and overly dramatize it.
One thing that really sucks to see on this forum now is a lot of political crying about biden or trump and not much more thought put into it. Just, mindless bitching. Part of the great part of being elitist in the past was that we could always say that people that are overly political are scum, no matter what side they are on. I used to take comfort in the fact that poor white trash vote republican and welfare recipients in the hood vote democrat. Now all I see are people taking really shitty sides and doing things only a mongoloid or someone who huffs paint thinners would do, like blame gas prices on biden or blame anything tangible being achieved on trump.
Part of the great thing about working in banking is it didn't matter who was president, we were better than that. Imagine my frustration when I see a bunch of people bitching about fucking buzzwords from huffpo and breitbart.. newsflash you retards are on here because you are a part of the elite, stop entertaining this political sideshow bullshit or if you are gonna bitch about politics at least making a semi coherent point that isn't just a rehash of whatever you happened to see on youtube today.
