There is a cult of ignorance

There is a cult of ignorance (around the world) and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is as good as your knowledge'” – Isaac Asimov

I rephrased Isaac Asimov’s qute from “United States” to (around the world) to give it a universal tone. I can even feel that here in the Philippines as most people today would glorify and even dignify Martial Law, Ferdinand Marcos and even Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and Jovito Palparan.
