More matter with less art

It is your patriotic duty to be stupid and kill people

Juanita Jean draws our eyes to a most wonderful report:

“… the further our respondents thought that Ukraine was from its actual location, the more they wanted the U.S. to intervene militarily. Even controlling for a series of demographic characteristics and participants’ general foreign policy attitudes, we found that the less accurate our participants were, the more they wanted the U.S. to use force.”

Or in her words, “...my favorite poll ever simply because it proves that the dumber you are, the more likely you want to go to war.” Nailed it. Go see the whole thing and the great, nay amazing map that goes with it.
