Hello, I want to get back to having intellectual discussion. Topic is, "Age of Anti-Intellectualism in America. A while ago, I read about a study that claims that Anti-Intellectualism is on the rise in America. It is believed that as every year passes by, Americans are becoming more stupider and more against intellectuals rather than working with them. It's been noted since the year 2000, we as a society has been on a decline. An example would be that a recent example is that a lot of Americans refuse to accept Obama as their president because he's both not white and highly intelligent.. Two traits that some people seem to have in common especially when it comes to politics. They're more resistant to science, technology and history than other people. They will go so far to reject what is universally a fact or any factual hypothesis. They would rather choose religion over facts and science. Personally, I am a firm believer that we will continue to be on the decline because of our overdependence on religion and technology. The more we all depend on technology no matter how it rapidly changes, The more we are encouraged NOT to think for ourselves. We are encouraged to let technology do all the thinking for us. What are your thoughts? Here is the link for study: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/02/15/AR2008021502901.html.
