Are we really experiencing the “dumbing down of America”?
If my clumsy typing as I create this post is any indications, then yes. Seriously though, many people have expressed concerns that different government initiatives and social movements are contributing to an environment in which anti-intellectualism is not only accepted, but valued and sought after. After all, how else would we have ended up with Trump as a leading nominee for the highest, most powerful, and theoretically most respected government position in the United States. Of course, we are the nation of the Kardashians, so were we really so far off?
