Anti-intellectualism and outrage

Check out DCB’s rant about "anti-intellectual crybabies" that act as though "being/getting outraged by politics is a positive character trait and indicative of thoughtfulness."

Boys and girls of Columbia University, many things in life are not unambiguously good or bad. If you find yourself full of rage over an issue, count back from ten and ask yourself if the issue’s really as simple as you think it is. And even if you conclude that yours is clearly the correct perspective, remember to respect other’s freedom to voice alternative viewpoints.
