To begin with, stupidity is all around us. It issues from every pore of our collective hide. It is the natural state of our species.

I have formed this conclusion grudgingly. I never wanted people to be stupid. In fact, I held out hope (early on, of course), that there was a trend of enlightenment. That, somehow, we would rise from the formative ooze of the twentieth century, and reach a fruited plain of truth, justice, liberty and respect for education and science. Alas, it was not to be.
