Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

I'm Okay, You're Not So Hot

According to late-breaking news:

While confidence in government has increased modestly in recent years, the public is increasingly suspicious of itself; in the most recent Pew Values Survey, fewer than six-in-ten (57%) say they have a good deal of confidence in the wisdom of the American people when it comes to making political decisions, a seven-point decline over the past decade and a much steeper 20-point decline since 1964.
This might mean that 57% of Americans think they're smarter than the median … unless it means that 57% of Americans get up each morning, look in the mirror, and say “You idiot!”
