    Here is one of the definition of what it means to be an intellectual:

    "An intellectual is a person who engages in critical thinking, research, and reflection about society and proposes solutions for its normative problems."

    There is no need for "wordsmiths" and spinner in a capitalist society. Society takes care of itself, that is why the so called "intellectuals" don't fit in.

    It is the left which needs them most. Think of Alinsky who gave them a manual how to destroy society and turn the dem party into a huge gang, where everyone is brainwashed to think and act alike.

    Obama hired "intellectuals" for his government. with spectacular results. ACA was formulated by these people who have disappeared since.

    The term of "intellectual" has been abused and lost its original meaning. Given the current status of higher education where critical thinking is all but extinct, it is not going to change for the better in the near future.

    It's "LEFT" leaning intellectuals, (see your link)...meaning non producing, unintegrated individuals with various amounts of compartmentalized stored information that is of not much use in the creation of value.
