“I've always written for a small audience consisting of people like myself who are well-educated, worldly, sceptical and snobbish (meaning that they rank good taste over bad). And who believe that nothing and nobody is special.”

Ranking good taste over bad has always been deemed a capital crime in the eyes of the proles.

It seems that Mr.Raven's credo was "a robust eighteenth-century paganism....allied to a deep contempt for the egalitarian code of post-war England" Now those are words to live by.
