From and Angry Reader: Dear Professor Hanson, Evidently you are a supporter of Donald Trump. If I read your essay on this subject correctly, you seem to be implying that, unlike the false elitism of the Washington Beltway, Hollywood, and Silicon Valley, we should look to the real basis of brilliance and repute in a …

 03/10/17 From an Angry Reader: Mr. Hansen – In this commentary, you appear to be engaging in sophistry. In other words, you appear to be decisively imparting falsehoods.

From an Angry Reader: You are most definitely wrong, California could go it alone. They are after all the sixth largest economy in the world.

02/23/17 From an Angry Reader: Prof. Hanson: First, as an aggressive moderate, I believe any talk of California secession is simply a waste of time and idiotic.  But saying “California” supports secession is equally absurd.  One third of the population reflects nothing close to a majority, not to mention the small poll sampling, and it …

02/03/17 From an Angry Reader: Re: Fake News: Postmodernism By Another Name  While I thought the article was well written and cited several good specific examples.

02/02/17 From an Angry Reader: Dear Victor:  I have long been a reader of your essays. I am befuddled by your steady defense – or at least by your stayed hand of criticism – of Donald Trump. I sense – and share – your glee about the comeuppance that the Democrats received in this past …
