Claire Berlinski comments at Ricochet: “Seriously, if you could have seen how everyone scrambled to get out of the camera when I said we just want to talk about the interesting things we were talking about yesterday. And people are afraid. It would be the end of their careers.” Caption quote: “People who want to explore these ideas are as afraid of reprisal as anyone I’ve ever met in Turkey. (Excessively so, I’d say: It’s not as if anyone is going to lock them up. But obviously, something is keeping them from speaking freely. And that cannot be good for any of us.) ”
The fact that the “land of the free” is governed by an unrepresentative elite is incisively illustrated here. The majority of Americans doubt Darwin, for good reason; Darwin rules because he enforces elite values, sometimes referred to as”overwhelming evidence.”
