Anti-Intellectualism is the prevailing value in today’s discourse on Truth. The question is whether it’s “nature” or “nurture.”
It’s difficult to say considering the “dumbing down” and “group think” that is indoctrinated on our students through the Public School and “Higher” Education systems.
Regardless of the cause, I’m still trying to figure out the appropriate response to these anti-intellectuals (who typically are also self-unaware, and egotistical). There literally is no “reasoning” with these people, since they lack the skills to “Reason” properly.
In the mean time, I guess I’ll continue on in the tradition of mocking the hypocrisies of the anti-intellectuals.
