    the statement used by President Eisenhower is a spectacular definition of the an intellectual and what intellectualism is about. Intellectuals believe that they know everything and that what is stated in or what they might read, view on TV or anything of that matter is correct and is the only logical explanation for anything in the world even if the topic is way over their barriers of knowledge.
