In Which I Sneak the Phrase “Ontological Relativism” Into an NYU Local Post

To elaborate on what I wrote here, I would only add that part of the problem with the “tiered reality” conception is that it’s fundamentally untenable in an open, democratic society lacking a rigid caste system. Eventually, people who aren’t privy to Strauss and Kristol’s special, holy truths are going to climb their way up the socioeconomic ladder and start distributing the Kool-Aid that the previous generation’s elite fed to them without any understanding of where it actually came from.

The result: Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and the Tea Partiers.
