Asimov Quote

I met Asimov when I was an undergraduate.  The thing I remember most about him was his crazy sideburns and his trying (unsuccessfully) to make off with my girlfriend.  Maybe because of that unfortunate encounter I never read any of his books.  I keep thinking of one of his quotes today.  Didn’t realize it was his but I will give credit where credit is due.

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.

Isaac Asimov
