QOTD: Cult of Ignorance

Our Quote of the Day is over 30 years old:

“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, column in Newsweek (21 January 1980).
