This is the result when your interpretation of democracy facilitates people who cannot understand mathematics, statistics and science
to contribute in equal measure to those who want progress*
*progress- a bold voyage into the great unknown labelled "The Future"; a journey that requires that one abandon the old discredited notions of dead old people.
Conservatism teach and indoctrinate the factual, conceptual and historical
that there is safety in repeating the processes of the past, striving to implement them better than ever in order to get a different answer to the failed calculation repeated over and over.
If you insist on being ignorant, then so be it; it is your right... but then: please, don't speak, because with each word you add to the body of stupidity that History will judge you on.
