War Against Stupidity//Say No to Stupidity

What happens when people are stupid? Innocent persons suffer.

What happens when other people are still stupid? Innocent persons still suffer.

What happens when other people decide to remain stupid? Innocent persons keep suffering.

Who is innocent in this case? The one who is not party to another's stupidity, the one who has never tolerated nor contributed to another's stupidity in any form.

Nobody was born to be stupid, there are some people that were born with mental retardation or developed it afterwards. They are not stupid, they are physiologically ill.

Note my statement above, nobody was born to be stupid. Many of us though as infants and children were stupid and without sense. That's why a baby at a certain age, will put almost anything in its mouth. Then we grow and mature, become more sensible and keep learning and keep being enlightened.

Stupid people choose to be stupid. Stupid people have refused to learn and be enlightened. Stupid people have refused to develop a sense of good judgement. Stupid people have refused to be fore sighted. They have refused to sit down and think about the consequences of an action. And sadly, very sadly, stupidity can be contagious. Have you heard of the saying, Iron sharpens Iron? I guess I should make a post on Campaign for Wisdom...hmm sounds like a good idea.

Here are more features of people who have chosen stupidity:

  1. they despise wisdom and instruction
  2. are reckless and careless
  3. have hasty tempers
  4. are slanderous 
  5. are lazy
  6. are unfocused
  7. are often 99.999% of the time adults

For the sake of humanity, please don't indulge stupidity. There is a thin line between living at peace with all men and tolerating stupidity. Speak out against it, write about it, be stern with regards to stupid behaviours and by all means strive yourself to get knowledge. Get wisdom. Get understanding!

There is a thin line between living at peace with all men and tolerating stupidity.

There is really nothing new under the sun, here are some quotes from other people concerning stupidity.

It's time to wage war against stupidity. Evil isn’t the real threat to the world. Stupid is just as destructive as Evil, maybe more so, and it’s a hell of a lot more common. What we really need is a crusade against Stupid. That might actually make a difference. ~ Jim Butcher 

You have attributed conditions to villainy that simply result from stupidity ~ Robert A. Heinlein

Never underestimate human stupidity ~ Pittacus Lore 

Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity ~ Martin Luther King Jr.

A whip is for the horse, a bridle for the donkey, And a rod for the back of fools ~ Proverbs 26:3 (NASB)
