BOOK OF TRUMP: Chapter 4, verses 28-34
Thaddeus Howze


“Auro pulsa fides, 
auro venalia jura, 
aurum lex sequitur, 
mox sine lege pudor”

By gold all good faith has been banished, 
by gold our rights are abused, 
the law itself follows gold, 
and soon there will be an end to every modest restraint.

Sextus Propertius “Elegiæs” Book III, c. 20 BC

The Cult of Ignorance

“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”

― Isaac Asimov
