The Hispanic/Italian analogy, again
Paul Nachman writes:
From a column by Phyllis Schlafly:LA replies:
One of the ways America’s third-rate hacks known as “intellectuals” mark themselves out is that they base huge, risky, nation-changing policies on mere analogies. “Germany and Japan became functioning democracies! So can Iraq and Afghanistan!” “Italians assimilated! So can Hispanics!” They don’t need to know anything about reality, they don’t need to know anything about the differences between the different things they are equating. They just need to have a plausible-sounding phrase.
