A hipster doofus millennial offers a screed that denounces books as “classist” and “luxury items” and “decadent affectations of the running dog bourgeoisie.” (I may have made up that last part.)
The commenters at AoS HQ note that the same doofus denouncing books as bourgeois luxury items probably owns a $600 iPhone and pays $8 for an artisanal latter. Another recalls when Progressive Social Justice Warriors (then calling themselves “Communists”) took over Cambodia under Pol Pot and systematically butchered anyone deemed “intellectual.”
The left is definitely better off when voters are illiterate, disengaged, and only pay attention to social media. That way, they are much more likely to believe crap like Mitt Romney wants to outlaw tampons or Republicans want to kill gay people.
