--- Asimov: the cult of ignorance
I just have to pass along this quote from one of the brightest lights America has produced. "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge'." This by Isaac Asimov.
Having a little context is always a good thing in any discussion!
