  1. The entire quote is:

    When a true genius appears, you can know him by this sign: that all the dunces are in a confederacy against him.—Jonathan Swift

    Who is the genius here, Dr. Hanson?

  2. “A Confederacy of Dunces” is the title of John Kennedy Toole’s 1980 novel. The term comes from Jonathan Swift’s essay, “Thoughts on Various Subjects, Moral and Diverting.”

  3. would these leaders be in power if the media reported the truth.and challenged those who make the current policy, while reminding them of their past mistakes?

  4. These three that Mr. Hansen describes are models of political correctness. The first foundation of political correctness is the requirement that one absolutely redefines and redirects anything patently obvious.

  5. Cary, the genius is reality. Truth and facts are much stranger tha fiction, especially to leftist, delusional ideologues who can’t see anything except what’s rendered in their house of mirrors
