One of the foundations of Progressivism was the necessity of being ruled by experts.
Modern society was too complex for an ordinary individual to understand, see... So experts had to make all the decisions for us.
The problem with that theory is an "expert" can be found for any policy decision you want, so the ruling class simply pick the experts fro the policies they desire.
It is a con game.

Yep, when they yell SCIENCE they really mean SILENCE (sounds best with the original German accent). Nothing but the fallacy of appeal to authority. When pressed they never back it up with actual science.
