Your Degree Is Revoked
At Crooked Timber, they have an odd definition of “ignorant”:
“Ignorant” is not synonymous with “disagrees with us.” If it were, they might have grounds for revoking the degrees of us educated wingnuts.
This study is an important contribution to our understanding of the emerging parallel universe which has almost completely absorbed the formerly Earth-based Republican party and its networking of supporting thinktanks, media outlets and blogs. It helps to explain the otherwise surprising fact that higher levels of education make Republicans more, not less, ignorant and deluded. With their beliefs on scientific, economic and political issues derived from the Great Library of Tlön, every book they read, talk show they listen to and blog they browse actively reduces their knowledge of the real world. .
I must admit to being tempted by the thought of revoking the education credentials of antinuclear activists.
In any case, I suspect that we have probably read more of their stuff than they have read of our stuff.
