It’s easy for us to overlay our individual political prejudices on this issue, but that doesn’t seem to be productive.
We are a nation of idiots, and we live in a culture that increasingly lionizes idiocy, woo, and superstition. Americans flock to “psychics”, palm readers, astrologers, and preachers of the “gospel.”
We are doomed. I can’t see any way out as long as we have presidential candidates flouting their ignorance as a virtue."
