    Empiricism is the opiate of the masses.

    Why foster placing events of the day in an historic context with a generous amount of critical thinking when sound and fury signifying nothing can be used to convince people fear should be the prime motivator in life. Such as the alien invasion from south of the border, massive voter fraud, death panels, neighbors acting suspicious, government take over of health care, President’s birth certificate, gay rights, voter rights, civil rights, Planned Parenthood etc., etc., etc.
