        The natural instinct for people is to think that, for some reason, if you don't believe in something you can't know about it.

        Also, if you do know about something, you must believe in or at least like it.

        Sometimes it seems that no one has ever heard of books or of learning or curiosity.

        I think this is a much more serious problem then it first appears to be. It separates people into two classes: educated and uneducated, and neither seems to understand the other very well.

        To save your life read "Pity The Billionaire" by Thomas Frank, and "Winner-Take-All-Politics" by Jacob S. Hacker and Paul Pierson. Then read more books.
