United States in Denial?

Geoffrey Wheatcroft tackles what he sees as a national epistemic crisis in the United States in a recent article for the New York Times. People in the US suffer from the problem of “unknown knows”: facts citizens should know about but choose to reject.

Thanks to Jason Baehr for the pointer (who also suggest to me that intellectual virtue might be a great lens through which to analyze the problem).
