Quote of the Day: Isaac Asimov.

“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

We Americans, on both the left and right, love being “right.” It’s much easier than being uncomfortable.

Who among us hasn’t heard a friend (or ourselves) say something like, “I can’t be wrong, I have a right to have my opinion.” With thanks for the tip to Reddit.

Only slightly related bonus: Fcuk me, Ray Bradbury.
