I don’t care for that house or decor one bit. Couldn’t live in it. But that means I’m not the right buyer, not that it should be modernised, so I’ll give you that.
There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov
