Heinlein – Quote

“[T]here seems to have been an actual decline in rational thinking. The United
States had become a place where entertainers and professional athletes were
mistaken for people of importance. They were idolized and treated as leaders;
their opinions were sought on everything and they took themselves just as
seriously—after all, if an athlete is paid a million or more a year, he knows
he is important … so his opinions of foreign affairs and domestic policies
must be important, too, even though he proves himself to be ignorant and
subliterate every time he opens his mouth.”
– Robert A. Heinlein
(1907-1988) American writer
