Our series resumes tomorrow: On May 7, Masha Gessen delivered a lecture at the PEN World Visions Festival.
Gessen is highly respected, and she should be. For that reason, the enormous absence of basic skills that day is especially noteworthy.
Plus, that liberal audience!
That said, the children are currently on a stampede. Their day-to-day dissembling is massive.
When Trump supporters discuss "fake news," the horrible truth is, they do have a point.
Donald J. Trump is disordered, deranged. But so is your upper-end "press corps."
The worst stampede we've ever documented was the twenty-month stampede directed at Candidate Gore. This current stampede is astonishing too, even though the current mob is chasing a persistently guilty party.
Are the children "rational animals?" Or are the children more sensibly viewed as a group of misfiring machines?
We've been posing that question the past two weeks. In our next post, we'll walk you through the search that resulted from the first thing we read this morning.
Tomorrow, Gessen returns. Masha Gessen is highly respected. In our view, she should be.
