A Republican has characterized the Republican Party as the party of NO. I would characterize the Republican Party as the party of

epistemic closure.

Where are Republican intellectual standards? Where is a personality that represents the Republican intellectual

engine; an intellectual engine that generates governing ideas.

Am I to believe that the words of Ted Nugent, Rush Limabugh, Louie Gohmert, Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann represent the

intellectual soul of the Republican Party? There is no intellectual engine that drives constructive ideas in the Republican Party.

Which brings me back to epistemic closure. The engine that drives the Republican Party is religion.

And religion is best described as follows:

“Epistemic closure describes someone who is thoroughly encased in the echo chamber of their own ideology, immune to considering

other viewpoints. The term is derived from the Greek word pistis which means faith or trust. When people live in epistemic closure,

they are immune to integrity because they only trust people who already agree with their ideology. They scan potential sources of

information for the presence of code words that indicate whether or not the speaker can be trusted as a member of their own

ideological tribe.”

There is NO intellectual curiosity. No intellectual honesty in the Republican Party.

“It is never just disagreement but always intellectual dishonesty that is the apologist's worst enemy. And its apprentice is ignorance.” ― Criss Jami
