Ignorance is the biggest threat to any democracy; it is however the ignorance of the ignorance which represents the greatest danger to a society. It is what turns an ignorant into a lunatic. Thus lies the danger, the peril even of a man, a community, a State, a Country and yes even a society.
John F. Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, said that “the ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of us all.”
