Elites Value Mellifluous Illegality over Crass Lawfulness

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Both our media and popular culture, as well as our cultural elite, value style far more than substance. Adroitly breaking the law is preferable to obeying it in uncivilized fashion. Boorishly bragging nonstop about 3 percent economic growth and below-4-percent unemployment is deemed far worse than contextualizing in professorial tones a stagnant economy that in eight years never achieved 3 percent annual growth. The façade of Camelot exempts empty lawlessness in a way that Queens-accented boosterism seems to nullify real achievement.
