In the newest edition of Afterburner, Bill Whittle examines the dumbing-down of American society with an eye to the causes, effects and possible solutions.
Whittle opens by noting that conspiracy theories about the moon landing and 9/11 have become mainstream. He goes on to explain the difference between ignorance and a lack of education.
One of the points Whittle makes, truly jumps out. He talks about a photo of Steven Spielberg on the set of Jurassic Park next to a dinosaur which went viral after the Cecil the Lion story.
Some people actually believed Steven Spielberg killed a Triceratops.
Watch the whole thing below:
Surely, there aren’t people in this day and age who think the moon landing was a hoax, right?
In July, Buzz Aldrin celebrated the anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing on Twitter.
