In a way this piece extends the thesis put forth in Bloom's book, The Closing of the American Mind; what drove him to distraction was the fact that his students had no convictions based in what they considered truth as though truth was just another condiment on the buffet tray.

It's a shame that book has faded into obscurity. It's a very important work, IMO.

"truth was just another condiment on the buffet tray" is perfect. I can tell I need to read Bloom's book.

Thanks and blessings,
