Those with agendas always find ignorance to be quite the useful tool. People who are ignorant are far more likely to go along with an agenda.
For example, Mitt Romney is certainly not ignorant, but he's skilled at leveraging the ignorance of his party members and constituents to go along with his tax agenda.
