The real trouble with stupidity

Everyone has a right to be stupid — which is fortunate, because some can’t help continuously exercising it.

Bertrand Russell quote

Bertrand Russell on national exceptionalism.

What confers on unintelligence the abhorrence of keen observers is not its effects upon the unintelligent, who are generally oblivious to such effects and amble through their lives with a kind of bovine complacency, never troubled by the thousands of idiocies that they inflict upon themselves and others. The offense lies in the fact that more often than not the onus of such idiocies falls upon intelligent but powerless observers caught up in their consequences, particularly when, as is often true, stupidity is paired with economic and political puissance.
