  • “Knowledge is the only good, and ignorance the only evil.” You may be expecting me to tell you that this is from a famous philosopher or political leader….but it’s actually from a fortune cookie. (hold up little fortune).
  • Presentation overview, main points: -Why I chose this topic -My motivation -Disclaimer -How political ignorance threatens the function of democracy -The media’s influence -How we can recognize this issue -Dealing with it -World views
  • -Porquoii? My reasoning for addressing such a topic
  • I want to make clear to people that I did not do this project in order to mock people or make fun of people, but rather to make a point. Late night shows have a highlight of other peoples’ stupidity, I did not want that to be the focus of my presentation and project. -Disclaimer
  • -How political ignorance threatens democracy -Lack of voter knowledge -Its effects on the system of democracy
  • Media’s effects on pop culture focus -Oversaturation -Freedom of internet allows people to pick and choose what they read/watch, leaving out important info/news for
  • -Recognition of this issue -Obviously, people know about it, but people need to be willing to go the extra step to learn about news
  • -This is not enough focus in our culture/society on learning about news/other cultues -Shocking statistic
  • -I bet the person expressing their “bumper sticker” politics can’t locate Iraq on a map – stat Ask for volunteer -1 in 7 American youth can’t find Iraq on a map -Pull up map, give laser pointer, ask them to locate
  • -Recognizing this issue is something that needs to be done, is in some places
  • Finishing up with world’s eyes, how the global community views our ignorance/focus on our own pop culture
