“I think we are living in anti-intellectual times….

Oh my god…When I saw this quote…I just went…THAT’S IT! That’s what this WHOLE crazy year has been!

JB: I think we are living in anti-intellectual times, and that this is evident across the political spectrum. The quickness of social media allows for forms of vitriol that do not exactly support thoughtful debate. We need to cherish the longer forms.

Judith Butler

Judith Butler on the culture wars, JKRowling and living in anti-intellectual times.

I implore you all to read this, because I think a lot of us. Despite, the article being about trans and feminisms issues. I feel like Butler is right on point for this whole year, especially when it comes to social media and trying to have some kind of discussion on it.
