The BIG DIVIDE is nothing more than a fight between intelligence and lunacy, knowledge and ignorance, wisdom and gullibility. And those who are in a position to remedy the problem want their constituents to stay ignorant, to be gullible and to embrace lunacy. The ignorance of their audience guarantees them a job and help them to preserve their wealth, why should they change that? Why should they help to change that?
The country is not divided between Democrats & Republicans but rather between those who seek knowledge and those who choose to stay and live in ignorance, those who seek truth and wisdom and those who promote and enjoy falsehood, those who make use of their brains and those who have outsourced theirs.
