Quote of the Day

“The self-designated intellectual “elites,” particularly the academic elites, repeat the conventional wisdom they have learned inside their ivory towers, refusing to countenance questions and objections, all while screaming loudly about how much more reasonable they are than everyone else. Weisberg laments that “there’s no point trying to explain complicated matters to the American people,” but like Krugman, he gives no indication that he is even trying. His job, judging from his writing, is not to explain and convince but to harangue and browbeat. The truths have already been handed down from Harvard, and we are expected to accept them on the authority of the elites who were trained there.”
