Dumbing DownOne of the most disturbing aspects of American culture is the disdain it has for those those who pursue knowledge passionately, as a goal in itself. If it weren't for such individuals, we wouldn't be capable of even discussing it. Language itself was born of the necessity to communicate more effectively.
Intelligence is our gift of humanity. Celebrating ignorance seems rather self-destructive, doesn't it?
