“The charge is often made against the intelligentsia and other members of the anointed that their theories and the policies based on them lack common sense. But the very commonness of common sense makes it unlikely to have any appeal to the anointed. How can they be wiser and nobler than everyone else while agreeing with everyone else?” – Thomas Sowell
I believe this bit of Sowell food explains a lot of the silliness in today’s SJW culture. How can you seem superior when you agree with the cannaille, the commoners? You have to come up with ever more esoteric and outre theories — or at least agree with them — in order to stand out from the herd. And by doing so become part of a different herd. (Or perhaps, really a flock, baaing out inanities with the rest of the sheep.)Published in
