Awesome post I saw on the Zeitgeist Forum:

USA the land of the most ignorant?

The paradox of the century, is the country that is supposed to be an economic and military power, is both the country of the most ignorant.

According to one study, the USA people, to be the most ignorant in philosophy, science, economics and politics.

More than 70% of the population only knows of tattoos, rock roll, guns, liquor, bars, TV shows, movies, cars, football, and thousands of concepts irrelevant, useless, unnecessary.

Such is his level of ignorance that can only talk of beer, TV shows, fashion clothing, cosmetics they use, creams against obesity, superfluous and luxurious capitalist inventions and hundreds of nonsense.

When you talk about social movements, political theories, scientific laws, few North Americans will understand what you speak.

Well, to believe they are free, can not understand living in a fascist country.

Well, do not even know that their country has produced and acted in over 100 wars or invasions, only in the last century.

Their level of ignorance has no limits, know or have never read hundreds of authors present in the world. Because in his country can not write freely, because no publisher dared for fear of government reprisal.

As an example, some North Americans, believe or think the film is innovative and ZM raised or say things that nobody knew or said before.

Without knowing that, for example in the neighboring country Mexico (USM), has written over 150 books and studies on the subject for over 50 years, only consult A. Gilly and Tomas Mojarro, V. Lombardo, Juan Rulfo, B. Traven, E. Zapata, and hundreds more.

Good to "Peter" says a "message on this forum", that the authorship of the concepts ZM videos are his, without giving credit to many people of Latin America, Europe, China, Russia, Cuba and others have identified from over 50 years ago, the same things, ZM movies have become fashionable until 2007 and 2008.

If you want to check the level of ignorance of the American people is very easy, just ask when they will be communists and see its ignorance overwhelmed.

Because their answers are based on children's TV news trade, not in books or study’s of international authors.

You said most ignorant, thus, it's a relative expression. Most ignorant out of all other nations? Just developed nations? Just western nations?

American has plenty of faults and I've definitely ripped on them in the past, but when you find the need to constantly bemoan and highlight these faults [real and perceived], it's pretty obvious your own insecurities are at the heart of it all, and you need to rationalize your own short-comings and failures here.

All you really need to say it that the US isn't for everyone, and move on with your life, emphasizing the positive aspects of other places.

Ignorance of international affirs is a luxery of stability and safety. During the Cold War, Americans were fairly well read on the US/NATO vs. USSR/Warsaw pact struggle, because the other side had some 41,000 nuclear warheads pointed at us.

The post was probably by a West European and is a typical gripe by such people. Again, it is a culture shock between a practical specialist educational US culture and a more generalist Euro culture. I do agree that Americans need to become more generalist but Americans are not the most ignorant in the world.
