A great article on America's dumbing down in the last few years. Scary! How can democracy flourish when American voters are becoming dumber and dumber. Scientific discoveries were once the motor of America. Now, more and more Americans are interested in dubious conspiracy theories and other forms of flawed thinking. Gone are the days of rationalism. Intellectualism is discouraged. People listen to the likes of Jesse Ventura and his 9/11 conspiracy theories and mock the viewpoints of Chomsky and other thinkers. A true intellectual meltdown has taken over US.
