Editor’s Note: Wow. This is actually really, really sad.


It is no secret that Americans are uninformed. Even so, a people that waves its flag so fiercely should know the most basic facts about its country’s origins.

In a man-on-the-street video titled, “FAIL- Americans Don’t Know Why We Celebrate 4th of July!–A CONVERSATION WITH THE GENERAL PUBLIC,” beach goers are asked about the upcoming 4th of July holiday. Mark Dice, who is best-known for his fervent focus on the Illuminati and aggressively criticizing Black Friday shoppers, had several simple questions. The answers are nothing short of jaw-dropping.

One woman says she does not know the names of any founding fathers. When Dice presses her, she guesses “Abraham Lincoln.” Another woman confidently claims that Independence Day celebrates “the day we overtook the South.

Seeing how far he can push, Dice asks one person, “Back in the late 1700s when Jesse Ventura and John Wilkes Booth signed the Declaration of Independence…What year was that exactly?” After a pause, the woman offers, “Some time in the early 1700s, I’m not sure.”

No Americans in the video can name the country the colonies revolted against.

While obviously, videos like this are edited to reflect a certain narrative, it is alarming that Dice was able to find a consistent pattern of ignorance (naturally, the only person included in the video who could correctly answer any questions was a tourist on vacation from Italy). Watch the full video below:

Americans are notorious for their inability to so much as name their vice president or find the countries their government bombs on a map. While it is alarming that these uninformed citizens fund the widespread crimes their government commits, what is equally disturbing is their attitude about it. Almost every single person who failed to correctly answer a question laughed about their inability to do so, seemingly amused by their own ignorance. They were happy to admit they would still be celebrating the holiday in spite of their inability to articulate the point of it.

Ironically, their modern government is uncannily similar (read: oppressive and violent) to the 18th century imperialists Americans cannot name but fervently celebrate their independence from. Rather, their ignorance enables that very corruption.

    Many decades ago, there was a science fiction story called “The Marching Morons” about how people got stupider over time. Boy, is that true.

    It’s been 50 years since I got out of school, but I knew the answer to every question. The current generation needs an app just to tie their shoes.

      some of them would need a roadmap to get tot he app.

      You also didn’t have multiple vaccines starting from the day you were born then raised on nutritionally depleted foods (most of which are toxic now) as well as fluoridated water.
      You should weep for the young because the ‘system’ has screwed them up every way possible and the adults didn’t care but it makes people feel so much better to just look at how superior they are.

  • Most soldiers are as informed about why they are going to any war as Americans are about why they celebrate anything. Most people are just there for the party and the freebies. Jackson Browne summed it up in this, from “Lives in the Balance”:

    They sell us the president the same way
    They sell us our clothes and our cars
    They sell us everything from youth to religion
    The same time they sell us our wars

  • Can you imagine the early
    church of the Apostles passing the hat to help Caesar out? To ask the Lord’s church to collect a
    tax to finance every wicked thing on this earth, including the murder of millions of babies each
    year, is tyranny at its worst.
    Because a ‘person’ has no access to any law outside the law creating it, then no
    constitutional arguments can ever be raised by the person, or corporation, successfully.
    Government is the person created by constitutions and no officer can make any arguments
    against the power establishing his office by using law, which is not given him by the superior
    power. In the same vein, a ‘person’ created by legislation can use no law outside the law creating
    it for any arguments against the superior power creating it.

  • I’m not buying that.
