One thing I’ll say…



It is frustrating how little Americans understand about domestic policy. But polling on foreign policy displays a shocking level of basic illiteracy on international relations, recent history, and foreign policy that — regardless of one’s own opinions — anyone with even rudimentary understanding of these things should be deeply alarmed by.

Why do you think that is?  And education system that teaches history badly if at all?  The ubiquity of news programs pushing extreme agendas and the loyalty of so many to one or more of these sources rather than a spectrum of views?  The fact that so few Americans are well travelled?  A general ignorance of news and current events?
