Intellectualism vs. Intellect

Instapundit had this to say yesterday, and it struck me as something worth passing along:

...Intellectualism, in today’s society, isn’t about intellect. It’s just a pose, like hipsterism or faux-redneckism. Most of those people who self-identify as intellectuals aren’t especially bright, they’ve just adopted a lifestyle that’s littered with what they think are markers of intelligence.
