In the age of information, is it fair to expect people to know what's happening in the world? or at least what's happening in their country or around them? Or at least just to not be ignorant? People say that the rich should not look down on the poor, is it the same as the knowledgable should not look down on the ignorant? And I don't mean the smart looking down on the dumb - Well, if you think you're smart, that's not smart at all. All I'm talking about is people not spending enough time to read the news or to find out how things work around them or how your own government runs or heck, just to READ !! I mean, with google, wiki, blogs, podcasts ... how can you still not know anything?? BUT the question is ... is it unreasonable to look down on people who doesn't know anything? I'm not targeting just any lay person, but someone who's got a friggin degree - Hey, if you're educated up to that level, I'm gonna have expectations on ya. Is this fair?
