Many moons ago I noted here at the blog that I’d be drafting an encyclopedia article on “Anti-Intellectualism in American Life.” I’ve begun and am now deep into endeavor. I have a reasonably thorough outline, and many words drafted (out of 3500 possible) with that structure in mind. I like what I’ve done so far, but this is a good spot for posing a question—i.e. a blog survey, a blurvey(!):
What’s a sub-topic, event, person, or issue from the last 40-45 years that *you believe* shouldn’t be missed in an article covering this time frame?
If you’re inclined to participate, please use a sentence or two to justify your contribution. I promise to reply to, and maybe even argue with, every suggestion. – TL
