"The Marching Morons" is a short story... I believe I first read it in The Science Fiction Hall of Fame Volume II.

I found it...

abebooks is where I was looking for a book and I wound up getting connected to this store which turned me on to this town in Herefordshire---Hay-On-Wye....which is a town full of bookstores....

....now I can't remember what book I was looking for.....( OH!  It may have been a huge, rare book on The SS Normandie! )
