"Educated" is not a noun, so someone cannot be "a typical half-educated" as a noun phrase. It's a modifier.
Logically, if he's not very smart and not very educated, he doesn't have superiority to the masses, so he can't demonstrate it.
He may use a fad to try to demonstrate his self-perceived superiority, but he can't actually do it.
Please don't write in all bold. Thanks.
