Like the rest of the urban technocracy surrounding him, whose members elevated and elected him, Barack Hussein Obama is a fool. Like most fools, he believes that he is wise, not in a wisdom acquired through learning, but with an innate gift, a natural understanding that transcends the limits of other men.

>>D.C. public schools have a 56 percent graduation rate for students in general and 41 percent for black males. This is what the city that runs the country that runs the world looks like. This is where the great planners make their plans while just out of sight lies another great urban failure where plans go to die.

Pournelle has been saying for years that the DoEd should be scaled back to just run the DC schools, which would arguably be within the true charter of the Constitution. If they were any good at it, they would serve as a model that state and local school systems could emulate. If they weren’t, well at least we’d be many $millions ahead of the game. And a whole pile of DC educrats would have to go find honest work.

The reformers who battled the old Democratic political machine became the new Democratic political machine.

The barbarians who were rioting in Chicago in '68 have taken control of the Democrat party.

...a foolish leader weakens and destroys them,...

So does an evil leader.
