Ignorance . . . Croker . . . Blame game . . . Election
Many of the problems we face have their root causes in the incredible ignorance of government officials.
And we are in large part responsible for that, because we vote for those who agree with us -- even if they are appallingly stupid and ignorant.
We need to learn to value intelligence and knowledge (and, where we can find it, that precious commodity wisdom) above slogans and partisan politics.
