Quote of the week

Both the constructive disagreement intrinsic to science and the adversarial scrutiny necessary to politics disappear in this invocation of science as the ultimate authority – this trick will become familiar in the coming months. An extraordinary emergency requires extraordinary powers; no one disagrees with that. But it is politics, not science, which grants these powers legitimacy. How long will they endure?

This is a hilarious Blog dedicated to explain to people who are not white Americans what white people like, written in an anthropological style. I like it because it recognises whiteness and treats it as something strange, thus inverting the way most white people see the world.
