Here is a little ditty from a renowned "thought leader".

“.. ,men of high position are allowed by special acts of grace, to accommodate their reasoning to the answer they need. Logic is only required in those of lesser rank.”
John Kenneth Galbraith
The Affluent Society

I think this means that "reason" is relative to a fella's position in the universe of humanity. Sort of like the laws of relativity, the "law of privileged reasoning" should, I suppose, go something like; "the attraction between logic and reality is inversely proportioned to the distance between the reasoner and the square masses."

Ya think?

Oy! So true, why should pesky little things like "facts" and "evidence" get in the way?
