The Death of Expertise


This passage from Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff sent chills down my spine and reminded me of the importance of straddling the line between chaos and order. Too much chaos will spell disaster and too much order will cause you to be paralysed by our own inaction. So far the Trump administration have used chaos to dictate the national conversation and distract their enemies from focusing on policies which affect the general public. Whether or not this will last is anyone’s guess, but one thing is for sure, eventually the house of cards will come tumbling down and experts will rise again.
