A Cult of Ignorance (Quote Project: Week 2.5)

I felt like doing an extra quote in honor of registering my new domain. http://www.knightstar76.blog is live!
I thought this quote was especially poignant given today’s political climate.

“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always 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

If you would like to read a great article about Asimov’s essay that this quote originated from visit Open Culture.

Peace Out
