Great article here about our national suicide, and our leaders’ role in it.

As for this old saw:
...a WASP physician endowed with the best education much money can buy, told me that he does not celebrate July 4th because the Declaration of Independence had been written by a slave owner and signed by other slave owners.William F. Buckley, Jr. would have shot it right down as a crude argumentum ad hominem. It's logically equivalent to saying, "Godel was a paranoiac, so his Incompleteness Theorems are just symptomatic of paranoia. Why take a paranoiac seriously?" Although more complex, this statement has exactly the same defect as that dentist's. It's merely less abusive.
Back in those olden days, there wasn't any need to resort to behavioral psychology. Instead, this rule of thumb was used: any professional (i.e., specialist) was typically an ignoramus outside of his specialty. Needless to say, that was thrown out as "elitist" when mass college education came along, and here we are now.
