RICK HILLS: Why I am an anti-intellectual. “Being anti-intellectual is not the same as being anti-intellect. My beef is with a particular social class — the ‘intelligentsia’ — and not with the practice of using one’s intellect to reflect on experience. In my experience, intellectuals (as a class) are ideologically intolerant, easily offended by ordinary humor, and pretentious in their prejudices, which they disguise as universal truths.” The comments are delightful, especially the two from Stuart Buck. (Via Volokh).
