The Intellectual Yet Idiot
 "By Nassim Nicholas Taleb  via HotAir

What we have been seeing worldwide, from India to the UK to the US, is the rebellion against the inner circle of no-skin-in-the-game policymaking “clerks” and journalists-insiders, that class of paternalistic semi-intellectual experts with some Ivy league, Oxford-Cambridge, or similar label-driven education who are telling the rest of us 1) what to do, 2) what to eat, 3) how to speak, 4) how to think… and 5) who to vote for."

I quoted Mr. Taleb's post verbatum to give an example of outstanding thinking available from the net.  Please look him up.  He is a genius.  Not one of our news readers or commenters understand what is driving this quiet political revolution around the world..  Even with all their "education" and "credentials" they don't, and to use the concept of "irredeemable", ever will understand what is going on.   Please go to Hot Air to read his thoughts or look him up on the net!

I won't post at Hot Air anymore because they are now using faceboot for comments.  I don't particularly have a problem with Hot Air, but their policy is turning them into a librul soapbox.  However, that doesn't mean I wont peruse their content without commenting.
