    experts say all but them most disabled students can learn fairly complex material. I know a professor who is shepherding mildly cogntively impaired students through college, and this is College  of NJ, a damn good school. And they are learning philosophy and Shakespeare and drawing connections. Average IQ is no excuse. Laziness, maybe.....

      interested in public policy. Perfectly intelligent, high achieving people turn into irrational idiots in the voting booth. And its irrational to expect anything else of them. The vast majority of people are incapable of identifying policies that are in their own interests, let alone figuring which bullshitting candidate is the one who will advance their interests. A democracy is always vulnerable to committed, well-financed propagandists.
