QOTD: Cult of Ignorance | The Big Picture - http://www.ritholtz.com/blog/2011/10/qotd-cult-of-ignorance/?...
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has 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, column in Newsweek (21 January 1980). ‎- alf
