Fascist Rationalizations

Via Instapundit, the ne plus ultra of blogs, comes this shiny chunk of schist from Assistant Professor Doctor Sarah Conly of Bowdoin College (tuition $58200 per year), where she is teaching two (2) courses this semester.

Allow me to summarize and rebut in two sentences.

We need paternalistic laws because we make mistakes because we have cognitive biases, such those towards optimism and towards the status quo.
Thank goodness our Dear Leaders are ready, willing, and able to set up laws for our own good; and that Dear Leaders don’t suffer from any cognitive biases, such as a bias towards their own expertise.
