The Cult of Ignorance

topics: ,

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.’

From the story The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction
