GOLDBERG VS. WEINBERG, PART XXIII [Jonah Goldberg]
I know everyone's probably sick of hearing about it, and, judging by the email I'm getting, it's pretty clear that I've scored a KO on this issue, but I've got to just put this one last email in:
As someone who has been collecting Star Wars figurines for over two decades, let me say that Professor Steven Weinberg is clearly an idiot and has absolutely no idea what he's talking about when it comes to theoretical physics. There are NOT four fundamental forces of nature in the Standard Model, as he arrogantly asserts. There is only The Force, which has a light and dark side - but, as we learned in the classic novel Sith Lords of The Final Jedi, these two sides are really just different ways of looking at the same thing. So I don't know why he's babbling on about gauge fields or whatever, since everyone knows that we discovered a unified theory of The Force a long, long time ago. However, like a typical cowardly liberal, he would rather hide behind a mountain of titles, professional awards and ground-breaking research than debate the real issues.
