    An inadequate education system has left us with two classes of people, those who believe what they were told first, and those who believe on the basis of evidence. The second group do accept being told, when those that tell them also tell them things they can personally confirm. The trouble with the believers is that they can be led down the slippery slope easily. They can first be told that all animals are equal, but then it can be qualified that some animals are more equal than others.
    Those of us who believe in evidence, also believe in analysis and prediction, whereas those who believe what they are told can only be changed by telling them more. I see them main value of marching is for the evidence believers to consolidate. And somehow we have to learn to deal with the sadly undereducated.
