Job Interview

“Why do you want to work for the Intelligence Service, Mr Moser?”

“Well, I think I am quite intelligent.”

“Ok. You will hear from us.”

I never did.

About Andreas Moser

Travelling the world and writing about it. I have degrees in law and philosophy, but I'd much rather be a writer, a spy or a hobo.

    Andreas —

    I read this on a University website a few months ago.

    “Becoming aware of privilege should not be viewed as a burden or source of guilt, but rather, an opportunity to learn and be responsible so that we may work toward a more just and inclusive world”

    Check your privilege:

    —White
    —Male
    —Class
    —Christian
    —Cisgender
    —Able-bodied
    —Heterosexual

    ———————————-

    Here is my question:

    Why is being ‘intelligent’ never included in a list of unearned privileges?

    Shouldn’t high IQ people give humble thanks every morning for their completely unearned gift?

    Thanks,

    Alex
