David Brooks' most inane column ever?
Al Gore's book, The Assault on Reason
, David Brooks exhibits contempt for any kind of rational thinking. He also treats Gore like he's a space alien, hence the column title, The Vulcan Utopia.
- [Regarding Gore] "it is still possible for exceedingly strange individuals to rise to the top"
- "Gore writes in his best graduate school manner"
- "Gore seems to have come up with a theory that the upper, logical mind sits on top of, and should master, the primitive and more emotional mind below."
- "Without emotions like fear, the "logical" mind can't reach conclusions."
Heh heh... smart people are stupid.
