Why Elites Fail | The Nation

Chris Hayes at The Nation Magazine and at Up with Chris Hayes on MSNBC has written a book called Twilight of the Elites: America After the Meritocracy on how ivory tower elites alienate the rest of the American Public on all sides of the political spectrum.  That discussion which can be seen above with the The Nation's editor Katrina vanden Heuvel coincides with the point of this blog.

Here I use examples from real life to explain complicated phenomena such as Barry Sanders running style to explain global warming and using statistics to explain other phenomena.   It is important to make knowledge available to the masses so they can make their own decisions.


Chris Hayes appeared on Democracy Now! to discuss his book more in depth using everything from the Penn State scandal to Wall Street to Iraq as examples.  You can purchase his book at the store tab above.
