The gnostic Left believes it is too rational
The transnational elite believes that it is superior in intellect. Yet, when defending its turf, it doesn't argue; it prefers to no-platform its rivals. I've noticed a self-rationalisation: that that their soi-disant superiority is a weakness. More specifically, that demonstrating that innate genius in a superior argument is not worth the effort.
I saw it here earlier with Perfesser Jonathan Rape Rape Brown, who kicked himself (or, claimed that his wife kicked him) for being too scholarly when he defended slavery. Now, we got Matt Siegel opining
These are people with the Higher Gnosis, and they see no point in mounting an actual intellectual defence of this texto implícito. Why should they? These pearls are lost upon us swine. We don't deserve an argument, they say; we deserve war.
Their arrogance becomes even funnier when the non-Westerners amongst them attempt Western classical allusions. As Sun Tzu once advised his Emperor, Jet Li.
Maybe Nassim Taleb has a point and it's time we quit addressing mandarin-class dolts by honorifics.
