‘Anti-intellectualism’ passes the 2 million mark

Anti-intellectualism Is Killing America, a piece I wrote last year for Psychology Today, has gone platinum, passing the two million views milestone this week. The article was written in the wake of the Charleston, South Carolina, church shooting in June, and it went viral immediately, passing one million views in about two days. It’s still circulating well, as it seems to become relevant whenever there is a mass shooting (which, unfortunately, is frequently) and whenever politicians or the media remind us of the lowest-common-denominator character of the American policy debate (which also is frequently). The article can be found at this link.
