PROBLEM 0020: On Condescension and Opinions

I wanted to learn how to condescend today, for the express purpose of not condescending, or at least condescending with intention and style. That might be fun. But it’s a word that has always baffled me, condescension. I heard the word in House of Cards last night and was impressed that the character recognized condescension when it happened to her. I was less impressed that whoever wrote the episode was able to use it. Condescension is a horrible thing, or is it…? Onward!
