Top definition
A condition that is mostly permanent, where someone with money, privilege, snobbish values, hubris, entitlement mentality, and lack of self-discipline think that gives them the right to force their narrow-minded, snobbish, and worthless values/opinions on others.

They're often White, often Moderates and Progressives, and often college educated with no ability to think for themselves. They often pretend others are helpless and force help on them. They don't believe others should look or be as they please, and thus support zoning laws, neighborhood associations, dress codes, etc. They constantly make up new laws, new etiquette rules, new dress codes, and new ways to pretend to get offended to control, enslave, and manipulate others. Unlike normal people who pretend to not notice differences in others, they often say little digs, give unwanted advice about whatever differences they perceive, or make little unwanted "helpful" statements. If someone has a birth defect related to gender, the person with RTS may drop little hints about it, when the person lives no differently from most others. They often move to low-income neighborhoods or volunteer there to control folks, boss others around, take over, exploit the citizens, change their lifestyles, and impress others.
The local high school was once an accepting and diverse place which allowed all sorts of self-expression through style and dress. But then new faculty members with Rich Trash Syndrome took over. They grew up in sheltered environments and pretended things were disruptive when they weren't to protect their own weak natures, fragile sensibilities, control needs, and snob values. So they decided to arbitrarily make up a bunch of new rules and ban nearly every previously allowed freedom. They claimed they were doing it "for the students" and to improve grades, when they were simply unable to ignore the preferences of others they disagreed with. The grades actually decreased while bullying and school violence increased. So the stupid folks with Rich Trash Syndrome reacted by making even tighter rules.
