Daring Fireball’s quote of the day is one of my favorites from a great writer, Issac Asimov, and one that I commented on in a post from more than five years ago.

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”.

Sadly, Asimov’s assessment of American society only gets more accurate with time.
