Reason and Its Worth? - Anonymous

This quote was added by user758396
We have all witnessed the failure of reason to stand up to the power of populism. Many argue that only reason can prevail against the darkness and ignorance that pervades these times. Using reason, reasonable people asserted the perils that awaited us should the electorate choose poorly. And yet it so chose. Of those whose hopes for the future are tied up in our efforts to reason with populists, I ask: what is reason's worth if it cannot prevail?
