Subject: RE: BS: Do Americans know II
I buy your anger of herd instinct, kendall -- it shows up in so many places and ways, and is the basest aspect of our culture in many ways; I think it has poisoned more lives than can be counted. I also believe that there is a cure, which is very scarce and terribly expensive for this degenerative disease. It is called genuine education, but we are unfortunately a little short in supply just now. In fact, I believe the black market is flooded with a highly adulterated inferior product being passed off as the real stuff, but it has the unfortunate effect of worsening the condition instead of curing it. I have heard they have a good supply of the real article over at the University of Hard Knox, but the admission requirements are stiff there.
