I'm Down With It

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, Writing In Newsweek, January 21, 1980
