After reading the entire article at the link, I felt the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end. Too close to home. We have been flirting with that sort of worshiping ignorance for political points for decades.

There are always those who will choose comfort over principle; ignorance and power over character.

Coming soon to universities near every one of us.
