"Всемирный класс интеллектуалов-идиотов ("intellectual yet idiot") только что получил вторую пощечину". ZH вспоминает поразительно точную (сентябрьскую) ядовитейшую статью Нассима Талеба об "интеллектуалах-идиотах", самопровозглашенных пастырях, способных в трех соснах заблудиться.
Интересно, есть ли русский перевод этой статьи.

АПД. -есть перевод

The IYI pathologizes others for doing things he doesn’t understand without ever realizing it is his understanding that may be limited. He thinks people should act according to their best interests and he knows their interests, particularly if they are “red necks” or English non-crisp-vowel class who voted for Brexit. When Plebeians do something that makes sense to them, but not to him, the IYI uses the term “uneducated”. What we generally call participation in the political process, he calls by two distinct designations: “democracy” when it fits the IYI, and “populism” when the plebeians dare voting in a way that contradicts his preferences.
