You hit this nail on the proverbial head. The primary problem with much of the culture in the USA is the fact that ignorance & debauched thinking is idolized. Homer Simpson is real & he probably lives in the average US home (or at least next door)! The really tragic part is that people have a choice as to what they'll submit their mind to. Since the bread & circus mentality is easier to consume than the whole grains of mental disciplines like math, science & fundamental law, the mental results will most likely parallel the metaphorical illustration. Anyone feeling "deficient"? Probably not: As "stupid" doesn't know just how stupid, stupid is.

But "stupid" loves to voice his opinions (which are like what, I've heard...)! and since "stupid" can't figure out how he'd have pulled of "this or that", he figures it's beyond the scope of anyone. Stupid hasn't considered what evil men armed with intellect can pull off. Stupid's too busy paying off the 30-year mortgage (on schedule & sooo proud of it) & other 'responsible stupidities' they've willingly taken on. "Extended warranty! How can I lose!"

Unfortunately, "Stupid" is often inbred with "Lax". I've discovered this because even after stupid is put on notice, his first reaction is to declare the problem so large as to be irresolvable (the implied message being that it should just be ignored).

"Don't ask me to give up my box-seat tickets in order to help out your cause. Don't you know that it's too big for anyone to do anything about!" - Stupid

Fortunately, there are people who have a moral sense deciding to toss out the TV-service & bring in the broadband. As they grow in number (thanks to a small vocal minority) - some very amazing things are bound to happen (and at some point - some motivated person is going to plant a single stone between the eyes of what appears to be an unstoppable giant).

At the end of the last revolutionary war, Judge Lynch was having British-sympathizers strung up so fast that the English language got a new word. There is one facet about history that is a constant: It tends to repeat itself. All we need is some good old Common Sense to prevail.
