The Liberals and the Idea of Rationality

The idea of rationality is the primary means by which liberalism establishes its superiority. The liberals are the owners of the mouthpieces of intellectual and political discourse. Thus have the power to valorize their agenda as rational and to 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 battles. The liberals cannot be defeated as long as they possess the power of determining what is rational and what isn’t.
