Something is Broken in the UK Intellectual Sphere.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Having read your rants and some of Professor Beard’s good-humoured responses to criticism, I think you’re just a retarded prick, however much you think of her as a vendor of bullshit. ‘UK political correctness mob’? This isn’t supposed to come from someone claiming himself to be a member of a nation most festered with PC. And ‘We believe here in America in freedom of expression’? What an arrogant sense of superiority (however justified it may be) is oozing from this statement! As if no other country cherished freedom in expression as much YOU do, being a Levantine writing on behalf of a nation of mostly non- Levantine! Yeah yeah . . .
