Marketing research will be the death of us all. TV, news coverage, politics, book choices- to succeed on a regular basis, you must pander to the lowest intellectual common denominator because that group is most easily separated from their cash, votes and attention spans.

True. Unfortunately popularity trumps quality. That's why a 'democracy' won't help further our species effectively. Too many ulterior motives. Can you imagine educating the masses properly? What a reasonable yet unruly society we would live in! Look people - circus tricks! Now vote for me bitches.
