Why do we not take pride in the intellect, why do we shun those who could build us a ladder out of this hell? Have we well and truly lost our minds?

This is a troublingly important question right now. Another way of asking it might be to say: why do so many people dislike expertise? Would you want a doctor who was not an expert to operate on your eye? Then Why would you want someone who doesn’t understand science judging climate science or someone who doesn’t understand politics or history (or basic civility) running your government?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
