3 things. First, these people are the Canary in the Coalmine. This was the first generation raised on processed food, TV, fluoridated water, and all the other 'normal' technological advancements that we take for granted today. Back when they were kids it was all new.

Anybody who is more intelligent than average inevitably gets called arrogant by those below. To most people, intelligence IS arrogance. If you happen to be really, really smart, you will be called 'insane' all your life. Nobody can relate, so you must be crazy.
