isaac asimov“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.”

–From a column by Isaac Asimov, Newsweek, Jan. 21, 1980.
