“It is probably true that in general, the higher the education of the individual becomes, the more their views are differentiated. If we wish to find a high degree of uniformity and similarity of outlook, we have to descend to the regions of lower moral and intellectual standards, where the more primitive (certain amounts of anthropological ‘anomy’) and common (large groups, often very easily led and anomic) taste prevail. This does not mean that the majority of people have low moral standards, it merely means that the largest group of people whose values are very similar are the people with low standards. It is, as it were, the lowest common denominator, which unites the largest number of people”. F.A, Hayek. Nobel Prize Winner. Economics.
