Latest Trump Scam: AFPI (America First Policy Institute)

Think-tank : a tireless scholar in relentless pursuit of the truth for its own sake.

The ludicrous idea of a Trump policy institute #AFPI puts me in mind of John Stuart Mill’s delightfully cynical observation on the virtues of giving oxygen to idiocy rather than seeking to suppress it: “The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error.”
