Smart People Are Stupid

Here is an article.

It is about anti-intellectualism. I've only so far read the first section, but it is pretty entertaining and punchy, but only I suspect if you are sympathetic to the point of view presented.

Articles like this are fun, because they let you get Outraged!, but then when it's done, you have to remember the whole non-black-and-whiteness of the world type thing. It's like watching action movies.

An enjoyable quote:

And in Dover, Pennsylvania, during one of these many controversies, a pastor named Ray Mummert delivers the line that both ends our tour and,in every real sense, sums it up:

"We've been attacked," he says, "by the intelligent, educated segment of the culture."

And there it is.

From Esquire, I think, originally.
