And ignorant people who are too self-satisfied to even realize it, are the bane of civilization.
I’m really tired of people who think it’s their duty to make sure the rest of us behave properly. I’m especially tired of vocal minorities who make a lot of fuss and manage to get far more than their share of air time and political attention by pressure tactics, and who are thus able to have a seriously disproportionate effect on the lives of the majority. But more than that, I’m really disgusted with people who don’t pay close enough attention to what’s happening in the country and world to discern the actions of such people and do something about it. They get what they deserve. Unfortunately, the rest of us get it too. That pisses me off.
