Righteousness not necessarily right

Newly elected member of the US House of Represen-tatives Ocasio Cortez, a socialist democrat, when asked about her appalling lack of knowledge of economics, replied by suggesting that, since she was morally right, it was not necessary to have a command of the facts.



It would appear likely that quite a few contributors to this paper of the liberal bent would agree. I find it both amusing and sad that the less knowledge people seem to have, the more inclined they are to tell others what to do. Taken to extremes, we encounter those who pursue careers as politicians. That is the sad part.
