from Liberty Blitzkrieg:
If a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.
– Thomas Jefferson
Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people, who have a right, from the frame of their nature, to knowledge, as their great Creator, who does nothing in vain, has given them understandings, and a desire to know; but besides this, they have a right, an indisputable, unalienable, indefeasible, divine right to that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge, I mean, of the characters and conduct of their rulers. Rulers are no more than attorneys, agents, and trustees, of the people; and if the cause, the interest, and trust, is insidiously betrayed, or wantonly trifled away, the people have a right to revoke the authority that they themselves have deputed, and to constitute other and better agents, attorneys and trustees.
– John Adams
Something that is often overlooked in our indictment of the corrupt status quo, is that one of the main reasons crony politicians and rapacious multinational corporations are able to so seamlessly pull off their unethical schemes is that a large percentage of the voting public is little more than a mass of ignorant zombies.
Proof of just how dangerous this ignorant mob can be was perfectly illustrated by a recent Public Policy poll which showed 30% of Republicans and 19% of Democrats support bombing Agrabah, the invented city from the animated Disney movie Aladdin.
Ladies and gentleman, I introduce to you the American primary voter.
