It is very easy to describe others as "stupid"
The Movie Idiocracy paints this picture, mankind has become dumber and dumber and the place is a big waste basket etc etc...
But who is the "stupid one" in the beginning of that movie?
The couple who's Materialistic ambitions and quest for perfection render them extinct
Or the care free rednecks? Who got to keep the Earth?
The question you have to ask yourself is
Are you really made happy by all this crap?
Which life is really better, living raising a family in limited surroundings but surrounded by love?
Or some fancy career and a car?
I saw idiots going bonkers on 4 wheelers having babies, children running around, enjoying a drink... Living
a Life of servitude to a nameless faceless corporation in order to get an external appearance?
There was one simple poetic truth...
The Yuppie Woman in the beginning of that film died alone and for what reason to support what? The Slavery system... The "idiots" wee free, not
controlled... on a surface level they looked like donkeys, but in life they Fought, they Made Love, they partied, They had Children, They Played...
So what does being "smart" and worrying about society at large your whole
life actually get you... NOTHING, Nothing it gets you a dead boring miserable life...
As YOUR life goes...
Which way do you think it will work better?
Doing as your told is right for the "UNPREDICTABLE" future that may or may not be?
OR doing what you want being happy and waiting for some Guy Not Sure to come along and fix all these here problems"
Isn't it the real... The very real that, Some Guy Einstein or Newton or "Not Sure" does actually through all of human history come along and fix
the problems that are created?
What if "Not Sure" is never born? because of some stupid basically insane philosophy that says going backwards is the way to survive?
The Yuppie who works his whole life for some condo in a tower in the sky he inhabits alone.
Or the Barbarians that come and kick him out the window and inhabit it for free with their 13 kids after HIS Materialistic unsustainable way of life
fails and leaves him alone.
People like to Reference India... Poverty etc and China
I'm sorry but at 1.5 billion China is kicking us apart and India isn't far behind...
The core values of the society will allow them to sustain that kind fo growth, India actually encounters these problems UNLIKE us now at 1.2 Billion
people in an area 1/3 the size of North America with 3x the people
And India is improving and we are falling apart
So who is the "sick" culture, us or the ever Multiplying Indians...
India I promise you will inert the earth from us in due time... we are a population in decline and yet our problems go worse and theirs are improving
It is because our culture is inflexible, not adaptable and Materialistic and Vain by comparison.
How long do you think America Can survive with such greed, how can your military protect us when the enemy can field a 100 million man army? Our Males
have been castrated and there are hardly any young males?
Some Army of rich Geriatrics is going to hold this continent in 40 years?
So what is Stupid?
