I continue to read The Open Society and Its Enemies – and marvel at what Karl Popper is saying.
He is quoting Heraclitus, who says – most people are ignorant, and Democracy cannot work. Something that most people agree with, in effect – in our time. That is why they elected Trump. Someone who is as ignorant as they are.
But Heraclitus, who lived in the 5th Century, BC – could not have anticipated life in the 21st Century AD. When people equate ignorance with wisdom. That lets them not see the horrible things that are going on.
