Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas - Tom Robbins

This quote was added by weesin
The extent to which a society focuses on the needs of its lowest common denominator is the extent to which that society will be mired in mediocrity. Whereas, if we would aim the bulk of our support at the brightest, most talented, most virtuous instead, then they would have the wherewithal to solve a lot of our problems, to uplift the whole culture, enlighten it or something, so that eventually there wouldn't be so many losers and weaklings impeding evolution and dragging the whole species down.

It's nice to see a balance of popular and unpopular opinions making an appearance in the typing tests. One of my favorite aspects of the Key Hero test is being exposed to such an abundance of well-written and strongly-worded opinions on various subjects. The fact that those opinions do not all align to form a single biased agenda is a beautiful thing.
