The stupid is everywhere
Sometimes, I, just like you and everybody else, have to deal with big groups of stupid people. Lots of 'em. So, so many. I try not to judge people, but it's hard. Some people are stupid and that's just the way it is. That's actually not a judgment, but merely a fair and accurate assessment. And it's not like I think I'm better than anybody else; all the evidence available at this time indicates clearly that I am at least as stupid as the smartest stupid person. To try to pretend otherwise is just false and serves no purpose other than to obscure the truth of the matter. Sorry, that's just the way it is.
What makes it hard to handle is when you really take stock of just how many stupid people there are, how deeply stupid they are and how spread out they all are. It's overwhelming, really. In fact, when you take all those factors into consideration, it's something of a miracle that there isn't more stupidity-driven mayhem happening at all times than there already is. I mean, these are people who vote and prepare food and operate machinery with gas and electricity. How is it possible that things aren't worse than they are?
Just going by the numbers and what's involved in getting society up and running every day, drawbridges should be flying up and down, launching cars into rivers all over the world. Somehow, airplanes don't always just fall out of the sky. How are traffic signals not lighting up as red, yellow and green at the same time? Given the level of pervasive stupidity surrounding us every minute of every day, all kinds of things should just be exploding all the time. I don't know why that isn't the case but I'm glad.
So, yeah, you know. Positive thinking.
