A meander through the Web led to this recent projectile vomiting via a weblog in response to some of the declared philosophies guiding Wikipedia. Make of it – and the undeniably useful yet thoroughly flawed Wikipedia – what you will, but if nothing else, the observations about the use of the word “reason” make the article (and the original piece it references) worth reading.

Certainly when it comes to dedicated political sites (including those of politicians recast as journalists) it’s best to beware those who preach from the pulpit of “Reason” – they can be found on the extreme left and the extreme right; the pathology seems much the same in both cases.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
