All The Experts I Know Agree

I don’t like Appeals to Authority arguments, even when they support my opinions. So, I’ll point to this WSJ article by the Dean of Harvard’s Medical School and say that, although I agree with his conclusions, I wish he had a more convincing argument than “all of the other smart people I know agree…”

When I hear someone say that I find myself muttering “then you don’t know that many independent thinkers.”
