The 2008 and 2012 presidential elections helped to prove what I’ve been saying for years which is that the majority of the American people are being dumbed down to the point that they are persuaded more by emotion than reason. A large part of that is due to the public school system which is more geared to socialist brainwashing than real teaching, including the ability to think and reason.
For this reason, I contend that the majority of Americans now suffer from veritaphobia and misology.
If you recall, I recently mentioned that the Democratic Convention proved that the Democratic Party is the party of haters and veritaphobes. Then I shared the following definition of veritaphobia:
“Fear of Truth”
- Displaying hesitation or refusal to admit or recognize that something is true, or to accept the concept of truth itself. Usually born out of fear of offending someone or being held accountable to something constant.
