Portrait of a changing cultural climate

“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.”
― Isaac Asimov

  1. I agree with the late great Doctor Asimov. One has to also be careful not to think that “I agree with you so I think you are smart, well informed, etc.” versus “I disagree with you so you are stupid, uneducated, uninformed.”
