It is exactly as the omniscient Longchenpa said: When the wise and virtuous are not held in esteem, yet affected and ignorant ones are immensely honored, this is a mark of the degenerate age! When these shallow, ignorant people are respected by others, their arrogance also increases. Like pouring gasoline on a fire, eventually it can only harm others without benefiting themselves.
