I absolutely agree with you. 

Growing up, I was instilled with a strong sense of how powerful a group
of people could be. Then, as I got older, I empirically came to
understand two fundamental truths: 

    1. Most people are not only poorly educated, but are ironically
    proud of their poor education.
    2. Any democratically managed entity is going to be ruled by the
    people in #1.
