We Can Fix Stupid

Really?  You can't fix stupid?

Perhaps at least we can work to prevent it.

There's too many stories in the news everyday regarding stupid.  We encounter stupid everywhere: walking down the street, in our spiritual organizations, in restaurants, on school boards, city councils, in local county, state and federal government, in our media, at our jobs, in our clubs, trolling on social media, and even at our kid's soccer games.

So if we can't stupid, we're all really screwed. No wonder Elon Musk is working so hard and fast to colonize Mars.

Stupidity is a lack of intelligence, understanding, reason, wit or sense.--Wikipedia

Seriously. We have to fix stupid.

No, for real. If you care about the future of our species I implore you to consider it may be time to stop sitting on the sidelines, sharing the stories on Facebook, and having a good laugh.

It may very well be true we can't fix stupid but at the very least we must take matters into our own hands to ensure the stupid become a dwindling class.

Start with promoting and supporting all forms education, over communicate, take risks, vote for the well-informed, report stupidity, blog, protest, expect proper grammar, join a group, start a movement, write a book, and most of all, remember:

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.--Albert Einstein
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.--Martin Luther King, Jr.
Stubborn and ardent clinging to one's opinion is the best proof of stupidity.--Michel de Montaigne
A newspaper is a public trust, and we will suffer as a society without them. It is not the Internet that has killed them. It is their own greed, it is their own stupidity, it is capitalism that has taken our daily newspapers from us.--Michael Moore
I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity.--Dwight D. Eisenhower
Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.--Frank Zappa
