Niall Ferguson’s confirmation bias

Historian Niall Ferguson offers up a near perfect example of the collectivist confirmation bias which I wrote about in a recent post. I usually agree with him on most points of history. But here he offers opinion on current events, the Brexit vote, global elites, and by implication nationalism versus globalist multiculturalism and moral relativity. Apparently, Professor Ferguson’s confirmation bias prevents him from recognizing that the idealist multicultural globalism he so adulates does not work in reality, has failed in the real life experiment on moral relativity which global elites like him and politicians tried out on us all after the end of the Cold War. Back to the drawing board for you and yours Professor. God Speed, Prime Minister Theresa May. Let’s hope you discover a new political formula for this fractal called life. Let freedom ring.
