No fool like an old fool

Listening to Thomas Sowell's history of modern Western intellectuals, he makes painfully clear, though it's no surprise, that White Foolishness has a very long 20th century pedigree. Between the First and Second World War, massive anocraniality masquerading as moral and intellectual superiority by the Anointed.

Just for one thing, the parallels between calls for unilateral disarmament and national pacifism and our Anointed's demand for confiscatory gun laws translate all too well. Both are stunning denials of the realities of human nature and human life.

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.
