In an age when scientists are creating artificial intelligence, too many of our educational institutions seem to be creating artificial stupidity.

So observes, quite rightly so, Dr. Sowell in his most recent essay entitled, “Is Thinking Obsolete?”  As usual, his logic is spot on, and the deductions from it are distressing at best, at least for those of us who do think.  Liberal strategy calls to for the induction of ignorance, of not thinking but only feeling.  Dr. Sowell serves up another example of the disastrous consequences of such a strategy.

Case in point (emphasis added):

Geraldo Rivera has denounced the Drudge Report for carrying news stories that show some of the negative consequences and dangers from allowing vast numbers of youngsters to enter the country illegally and be spread across the country by the Obama administration.

Some of these youngsters are already known to be carrying lice and suffering from disease. Since there have been no thorough medical examinations of most of them, we have no way of knowing whether, or how many, are carrying deadly diseases that will spread to American children when these unexamined young immigrants enter schools across the country.

The attack against Matt Drudge has been in the classic tradition of demagogues. It turns questions of fact into questions of motive. Geraldo accuses Drudge of trying to start a "civil war."

Note how the strategy can be implemented.  Note it and be aware of it, and ready to denounce it as stupidity on display.

    Artificial stupidity plays right into the Left’s hopes and dreams for controlling the people of this country. It’s not an accident.
