Are we that stupid? Perhaps…

Here’s an interesting story I wanted to share, from marketing guru Seth Godin.  The timing is perfect, with us in the midst of a horrible presidential campaign season.  (Since when did it become Obama v. Palin?  Why don’t people ignore the truth?)

This post hit hard because I can’t stand uneducated ignorance.  If you speak your mind, and you’re truly educated on the topic, then feel free to rant and rave all you want.  Be ready to back up your claims.  It hurts me to the core of my being when people talk about things they don’t understand – simply because they haven’t taken the time to learn about it.   For some, ignorance is bliss.  Perhaps human nature.

If you don’t know who Seth Godin is, and have any interest in marketing and/or new media, I would urge you to read up on him – quickly.  With a new book launching next month, he has already written the best-selling “Meatball Sundae” and “Small is the New Big.”
