Advocates of limited government see centralized power as dangerous--not only in terms of threats to human liberty, but in terms of economic decline. Like Madison, we know that men are no angels. Progressives, on the other hand, cannot imagine a world without elites running things. Higher education - a cloister for "progressive" thinking - has always been the place where Utopian plans are conceived before being passed to the pamphleteers--and then tossed into the sausage grinder of government. But their methods are changing. There's a new twist on an old m.o. Call it "manufactured consensus." In that same vein comes the newly discovered "Cry Wolf" project, a merry band of progressive academics who have decided it's more effective to "construct a counternarrative" (read: make up a story) than to look for anything resembling truth.
