Salesmanship and Truth

Michelle Obama’s embarrassingly self-absorbed and sentimental presentation on behalf of Chicago to the International Olympic Committee, discussed in the entry, “The less some people have going for them, the greater is their self-esteem,” becomes the occasion for a profound disquisition by Kristor. He shows how the philosophical skepticism, the disbelief in objective moral truth, that is shared by all liberals, leaves the liberal with no way of discussing reality, no way of persuading people of something, no way of selling them something, other than by making the liberal’s personal feelings the central focus of the matter.
