The uneducated masses

Without trying to sound arrogant, I have to say that I have little faith in the majority of the uneducated masses that are my fellow citizens becoming educated about anything. They are and remain uneducated for a number of reasons, some of which are a poor educational system, a complicit press and entertainment industry, and plain old apathy.

Now if this had something to do with a TV show, a movie star, a sporting event, booze, weed, or anything else the masses get excited about (and I'm not down on any of those things but have prioritized them in their proper place as far as things that matter) then perhaps you could get a rise out of them. But learning about money... not so much.
