I've traveled plenty.  Talk to the millions who've never left their small town, except to pick up Jethro from the airport.
What business does NCIS have in that small town?

I think the Jethro in question is none other than Jethro Bodine

Just because they are from a towns doesn't mean they are idiots. There are a lot of people on this very board that are from small towns.

Travel to the small towns. Travel to other countries' small towns. Let us know what you see.

(Hint - it's going to be very similar.)

maybe you could use different words?

just a thought
This. 

I personally think "the masses" are, if not idiots, people who don't have a lot of depth of knowledge, intellect, or interest in developing such. 

They're easily led, because they choose not to look beneath the surface of nearly every issue and understand that there are no easy pat answers in the world. And frankly, most of them wouldn't be able to comprehend that nuance if they got there. 

They'd rather watch the news and be told what to think, if they care to be "informed". They argue with each other on facebook with a meme-level of understanding of issues, and their arguments are more a vision into their own identity of who they are rather than an actual analysis of the world. They think they're informed, but they're not.

And many don't even do that--they're completely uninformed, only caring about what the Kardashians are up to, or reading People magazine, or what's going on with their favorite sports teams, or just playing video games. 

My view of the common man is not particularly flattering.

hah, I'm from a small town and live in a smaller town.  The folks from small towns aren't the masses.

the folks crammed together in the big cities are the masses.  We haven't had any riots in small towns.

Plenty of people from big cities who feel like they're "worldly" and superior to those from small towns, but their "worldliness" doesn't extend beyond the Kardashians and People magazine, as previously stated. 

Many of them feel well-traveled because they've been to a resort in Hawaii, a resort in Cancun, and to the Vegas Strip. They'd never leave their resorts and actually interact with the locals though.

No argument there. But if you fly to the Cancun airport, take the resort shuttle to spend a week within the confines of the resort, then take the resort shuttle back to the Cancun airport before flying back to the US, I don't consider that having become worldly or having experienced Mexican culture. 

Those sorts of people say "oh, I *love* Mexico!" When in reality, they wouldn't dare spend a moment outside of the carefully curated resort experience.

I also think the key turn of your earlier post is "or interest in developing such. "

Well, they shouldn't. You gotta get out and meet the people. Find the local hangouts, and have a blast. I find big city folk to be misguided, generally.

Reminds me of our last Hawaii trip. My BIL used to live there, so we spent some time with him since we stayed there, and we hung out at his haunts. It was great, even for Oahu. Then, we went to Kauai and stayed at the Hanalei Inn. It's a 5 unit efficiency place. We met a lot of locals out of that base. Good times. Walk down to the beach, buy fresh Ahi from the fishermen, and just live the life. It was fantastic.

probably a better topic for another thread, but I've found that when in Mexico, it's sometimes better to stay near the resort area

I haven't and wouldn't do an all inclusive resort, cause I like to go out and hang at the local places for food and drink.  But, those places are usually in or near the resort areas.
