As a philosophy professor I am very seldom without words; but this video clip leaves me speechless.

Here is a clip full of interviews of people in attendance. After watching the clip I am even less sure what the rally was about.

I challenge anyone to find a shred of reasoning here. Political thinkers often say that democracy requires an educated public.

How about a public that maintains some connection with reality?
