  •  Back when Carter was elected President, they (0+ / 0-)

    called it the new south, supposedly enlightened.

    And now it's back to being bad.

    Interesting article at Alternet here:

    We live in two Americas. One America, now the minority, functions in a print-based, literate world. It can cope with complexity and has the intellectual tools to separate illusion from truth. The other America, which constitutes the majority, exists in a non-reality-based belief system. This America, dependent on skillfully manipulated images for information, has severed itself from the literate, print-based culture. It cannot differentiate between lies and truth. It is informed by simplistic, childish narratives and cliches. It is thrown into confusion by ambiguity, nuance and self-reflection.

    This article entitled "Forget Red vs. Blue -- It's the Educated vs. People Easily Fooled by Propaganda" focuses on the educational deficit components of our cultural divides. Check it out.
