PJ Media » England: It was Fun While It Lasted:
The post details the end of Britain as we have known it - a long time foreseeable but apparently now come to pass. The post is worth the read; I have blogged about the same topic.
But this comment caught my eye:
You mentioned that the intelligentsia hates America. My favorite guru, Eric Hoffer, noted in the sixties that the intellectuals hated America because this country stands as proof that they are unnecessary for human progress. Furthermore this is one of the few countries in which they are denied power (at least until 2008).Seems about right.
