“How well he’s read, to reason against reading!” Love’s Labours Lost, good ol’ Bill.
There was a time that this was true. That arguing against a well read person, someone who has studied and become knowledgeable about the subject, would be unthought of. It’d be mad!
Now, well, experts are being frowned upon. Science and logic are being shunned, to make people feel better. Or so businesses and other large organisations don’t have to face up to having a guilty conscious. Take for example how quickly references of climate change disappeared from the White House website after President Fart was inaugurated (that same day, if you didn’t know). How can the world carry on when the largest example of western ‘civilisation’ doesn’t want to officially recognise climate change and are to call it weather extremes.
