Authoritarianism, Secrecy, and Incompetence: The New, New Thing

South Carolina State Sen. Mike Fair is pushing to give teachers alternatives to evolution but he won’t identify the people he has asked to advise a state panel, according to Bill Robinson of The State.

Reportedly, Fair invited two "experts" to advise the school reform oversight agency, which is evaluating the standards for teaching the origins of life. He promised the two advisers he would protect their identities to minimize scrutiny of their views and credentials prior to their appearance before an EOC subcommittee next week.

Only in the reality-based world are experts required to have credentials.

Authoritarianism, secrecy, and incompetence is now the new, new thing.
