Excerpt from The Death of Expertise - John Nichols

This quote was added by phaedra
These are dangerous times. Never have so many people had so much access to so much knowledge and yet have been so resistant to learning anything. In the United States otherwise intelligent people denigrate intellectual achievement and reject the advice of experts. Not only do increasing numbers of laypeople lack basic knowledge, they reject rules of evidence and refuse to learn how to make a logical argument.
