Annotation

New in paperback. Hardcover was published in 2017. Explores how a culture of extreme egalitarianism made "expertise" synonymous with "elitism".

Full Description

From the anti-vaccination movement to citizen blogging to uninformed attacks on GMOs, the nation has witnessed a surge in intellectual egalitarianism. While increased access to information undoubtedly brings some societal benefits, the leap to enlightenment that millions of lightly educated people believe they make after scouring WebMD or Wikipedia undermines established sources of knowledge.
