Commuication problems

I Want A New Left looks at the signal that the Democrats are inadvertently modulating their message onto, and hits it out of the park:
Most people don’t pay any attention to academia, which is a shame since it is filled with inadvertent messages that liberals and leftists are sending. The unemployment situation, which they don’t care about, plus their sucking up to schools for the rich and their denigrating the schools that poor people typically attend, send messages that are diametrically opposed to the messages they usually send. And their staunch support of peer review in connection with global warming says that they don’t care about the opinions of those of us at the bottom.
And his last paragraph is industrial strength snark.  Heh.

To repeat what I said over there, it's like they are acting out the Dunning–Kruger effect, the 1999 Cornell study "Unskilled and Unaware" - and that's similarly reflected in their use of Orwell's 1984 as a playbook to be duplicated rather than a cautionary tale to be avoided.
