Is it just me or does it seem to anyone else that Reason, sweet Reason itself, is under attack these days?
I know that there has long been an anti-intellectual bent to American life. There seems to be this constant, underlying thought that, “It’s Dangerous to Think Too Much.” I wonder if we’re the only democracy that criticizes some candidates for being a bit too smart?
And so, I wonder, as the conflict between those driven by Jihad and those driven by Crusade (did it ever really end?) rises to a fever pitch, will those who favor thought over faith be crushed, like grapes between two anvils?
