A true sign of intelligence is awareness of how little we know.
The more you learn, the more you know you don't know.
If the converse is also true, then the less you know, the more confident you are of your knowledge. (Because you don't know what you don't know.)
In the current political climate, it certainly seems that those who don't know what they don't know also don't want to know anything that would challenge their assumptions.
And, those in power are happy to take advantage of that.
