I had the misfortune of taking a mandatory PhD course taught by someone connected to the Calgary school. Most of the course was about the necessity of the 'noble lie' because the masses are unable to cope with reality. Because of the inadequacy of the masses it is necessary for a small group to take control under the guise of the noble lie so that chaos can be avoided, and truth embraced. When I read the Walrus article chills went up my spine because the ideology it examines was at the centre of the political theory course I took.Thanks CLS for helping reinforce the point. My sympathies for having to endure such dreck.
