Knowledge can only filter down from those who have it and that filtering 
presupposes a willingness to share it and an ability to convey it in 
accessible and palatable form. It is sad to think anyone with specialized 
knowledge would assume that there is no one else who would enjoy being 
enlightened. Lead, kindly light!   

And I'm always enormously put off to get even a whiff of someone thinking 
that any one group of irises is inherently superior to others and that those 
who are associated with it are somehow of a different order from other 
mortals. I hasten to shout very loudly that you will see this sort of hooey 
associated with every type of iris, but luckily it is pretty rare. Probably 
because it is patently nonsense.
