Why Citizens of the Empire Don't "Get It"

It rained here Sunday. Not a lot, just a little bit, and certainly not enough to make up for the lack in this semi-arid region. But plenty enough for the denizons of the World Capital of Ignorance to crash their vehicles, forgetting in their zeal to "get somewhere" that the driving conditions had changed a bit. Read all about it here in the local rag. Chaos' question is thus: how can one reasonably expect people to understand mildly complex issues discussed on this blog(take, for example, the tragic state of healthcare in this country, or social security, or peak oil, or whatever) when they don't even realize that slowing down when it rains might actually be a good driving practice?
