Anthony Esolen has a nice piece at Public Discourse on the necessity of authority for human flourishing. He contends, among other things, "no genuinely human reform of education is possible unless we are willing to cast aside an essentially inhuman egalitarianism." There's a lot more going on, so read the whole thing. I hope that Patrick Brennan, who edited an excellent volume on the subject of "authority," will weigh in!
