In the aftermath of this election we can see that elitist neo-Marxist intellectuals have evolved–from champions of the working class to enemies of the working class. I have to ask myself if they were ever really the former.  How about those labor unions in China and Cuba!


Climate Change Deniers

There is something very unsavory about the use of the phrase “climate-change denier.” The allusion to the Holocaust seems to me to be particularly sleazy but rather transparent. This rhetorical trick subliminally equates those who do not believe that “the science is settled”– whatever that may mean in reference to an ongoing inquiry like science– with rabid antisemites.  This kind of smear tactic is precisely what we should expect from people who can’t distinguish science from religion.
