Hitchens, Fukuyama And Cognitive Dissonance
Two minor stars of the AgitProp firmament offer us rare glimpses into how absurd intellectual postures hold up under unrelenting and sustained blows of cognitive dissonance imposed by unforgiving Reality. The results, Dear Reader, are not pretty.
We speak, of course, of that garrulous refugee from personal hygiene and sobriety, Christopher Hitchens, known as 'Hitch' in the rugby scrum and in Sully's fulsome rhetorical embraces. He is joined today by the formerly stolid, unimaginative, and dare we say plodding Francis Fukuyama. Goofus and Gallant of the Neocon Highlights reader.
