An academic’s cri de coeur and an important essay: Tom Nichols analyses the perilous rise of the notion that «everyone’s opinion about anything is as good as anyone else’s.» While I certainly do not share his opinion that this development was «Google-fueled, Wikipedia-based», his description of the status quo and its effects on society is spot on.


From Weekly Filet #147, in August 2014.
