Excellent points, especially about anti-intellectualism. I don't know if it's due to the internet, but it seems to me that anti-intellectualism is increasingly commonplace. It's a serious concern in a democracy as it affects education and politics.
Amen to your and KU37's comments. It's not only in America & Australia; it's happening in Britain too and I would guess in many other parts of the world. Big mistake because we're going to lose our creative and intellectual capacities.
I would put down anti-intellectualism in both the USA and Australia as a continuing off-shoot of so-called 'reality' television. Documentaries are being replaced too often by pretend documentaries that are just lame 'reality' junk.
