No one like being looked down upon. No one likes being called ignorant. No one likes being told what to do.

On the other hand, the United States just escaped having a profoundly ignorant candidate only a heartbeat away from the presidency. Part of what drove her popularity was a push-back by people who resent being thought of as ignorant.

The remedy for that is not to elect ignorant leaders because they're "just like us" (:huh:), but to study and learn; or at the very least to stop being so defensive about one's own ignorance. It would have been a national tragedy if we had saddled ourselves with an unqualified president to prove a point.

We did that 8 years ago.
