Conventional wisdom is only conventional. Most ‘Americans’ know the saying:”Ignorance is Bliss.” That’s a hoax. The complete quote from the Ancient Greek philosopher Socrates is:”If Ignorance is Bliss, then it is foolish to be wise.”
Our history is peppered with such falsehoods leaving people with the sense that we just can’t know the answer to some life’s illusions. Science shows us year after year how there is a cause & effect to everything in the universe. We need only to be wise enough to study, search & work to find the answers.
Mark Hamilton has provided a backdrop to History showing how people have been underinformed ‘for their own good’ for centuries. A lot of what he’s written are conclusions I’ve arrived @ on my own, but I never published anything. The power of knowledge is the only defense against the Oligarchy that is dumbing down the U.S.A. & enflaming ignorant religious fanatics all over the world.
Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups. ie(the Tea Party).
The future of the World is @ stake
