Jason Kottke draws some intriguing parallels between O.J. Simpson and Donald Trump. Short, but worth reading and pondering.

Personally, I fault the American educational system for not teaching critical thinking skills starting around third or fourth grade. The reason critical thinking skills are not taught is that many parents lack such skills and don’t much like having children who are better than they at analyzing and understanding things—such as the parents’ own dear beliefs, so of which may not withstand critical thinking. Better, they think, that the kids be ignorant of such skills.
