Quote of the Day (Michael P. Lynch, on the Crisis of Reason in the U.S.)

“Without a common background of standards against which we measure what counts as a reliable source of information, or a reliable method of inquiry, and what doesn’t, we won’t be able to agree on the facts, let alone values. Indeed, this is precisely the situation we seem to be headed toward in the United States.” —Michael P. Lynch, In Praise of Reason: Why Rationality Matters for Democracy (2012)
