25. I'm not at all opposed to educating voters, in fact
Edited on Sat Jan-29-05 06:25 PM by ultraist
we need to do so. There is a lot of unactualized opportunity out there. But, I am being a realist in the sense that I don't expect that our population will become that advanced overnight. It will take decades and even then, there will always be segment of the population that is disaffected and susceptible to marketing.

The quick & easy fix/the soundbite/the disposal society is very ingrained in our culture.

I don't think that the European culture is as much that way as we are. Consider also what percentage of Europeans earn bachelors' degrees. I bet it's higher than in the US which is only around 24%. (It has dropped under Bush).
