Comment: I refer to them as a group

I refer to them as a group

because they are. They work cooperatively to achieve various goals. the specific individuals involved changes depending on goals, and just with time. They are like a football team. The New York Giants have different players, owners, managers each year, but the team still has essentially the same goals.

I call them elite because They have power and wealth and that's how society views them. I choose to use the language of everyone else, rather than make up my own terminology. .

That doesn't mean they are the "best" people, or that I would want to be like them. They are despicable, but they are indeed elite in our society.
