In Part 2 of our discussion with the philosopher Oliver Traldi, the conversation zeroes in on the role of elites, and the qualities needed for effective leadership. Would technocracy seem like a more desirable system if our expert class hadn't sullied its credibility so extensively over the last 20 years? Is the horse-sense of normie voters a better guiding light than the prophecies of the elite class which is all too often high on its own supply?
Bonus: why couldn't elites appreciate that Donald Trump was a bad man but also an under-appreciated comedic genius—and does this suggest that experts can't see the very things right before their eyes?
In case you missed it, Part 1 of our discussion is available here.
