Trust the experts, for Pete’s sake!

It has been bandied about quite a bit, but I do think that we are on the tail end of accepting credentials as expertise. The soi-disant “experts” have pooped in that particular soup. They sold out scientific wisdom for a mess of political hackery, and they will not easily regain that trust.

The solution is to stop pompously pontificating based on credentials and focus on logical argument, on persuasion. The problem is that that is somewhat unknown territory for the Lefty expert class.
