The intellectual is a dying breed. It is simply easier to turn the other cheek to the curiosities and injustices of the world; this means denying the written word as well as facts. Denying facts requires a denial of information. The irony of today is that we’re so saturated with information that it appears meaningless. And, the less-informed a populous is, the more they rely on ambiguously faulty political rhetoric and meaningless New Age pseudoscientific half-assed philosophical platitudes.
