I don't have any formal CS education, nor a degree in anything else.
But that doesn't make me an anti-intellectual by instinct (the
instinct would be jealousy, I guess), nor does it stop me from
learning. Or using Google, something I'm sure you do too.

We have a great degree of admiration and fondness for intellectuals in
Europe; the French in particular hold them in very high regard.
Perhaps disdain of learning and further education is peculiar to a
certain section of American society, as the label
"intellectual" (often, "liberal intellectual") appears to be used as a
derogatory term. I have no idea what a pseudo-intellectual might be,
but it's evident you mean it in much the same way.
