The Liberals and the Idea of Rationality

The projection of rationality is the means by which liberalism establishes its superiority. The liberals are the owners of the mouthpieces of intellectual and political discourse. They have the power to valorize their agenda as rational and brand the agenda of their rivals as irrational. The language of rationality imparts a superior status to liberalism and ensures its success in the intellectual and political contests. The liberals cannot be defeated as long as they possess the power of determining what is rational and what isn’t.
