I suspect he thinks he is, but like most advocates automatically assumes he is at the top of the food chain and evolutionary tree.
But I think his obsessive desire for control shows he has missed the point. Wonks like him get used and spat out.
He wants 'talented' 15 year olds to be prepared for leadership. I am pretty sure he is thinking of himself at age 15 getting the shitty end of the stick from the rugger buggers and football oiks and having to connive his way up the slope to where he is now.
I don't blame him but it isn't Darwinism, social or otherwise he craves, its control. The last thing he really wants is competition - as he says in his blog the competition is comprised of 'dysfunctional egomaniacs'and 'grotesque incompetents` - delicious irony.
