Echoes of Dag

Good ideas have a way of cropping up in more than one place at once, since intellectual life is inherently a social pursuit, all romantic ideas of the lone genius aside. Here's Gil Bailie (with that great cartoon) sounding a lot like Dag. It's enraging stuff, but now is the time to get sufficiently enraged, while remaining lucid and sharp, mentally free of apocalyptic or utopian "solutions", that we can get enough people aware that we need to change our political culture and make it more in line with reality, lest our little debates about when it is acceptable to be rude and violent get lost in the storm that will follow the "victory" of those who think it is appropriate to preach anti-Western courses on "Islamophobia" in our universities.
