Stupid People
Many years ago a wise man told me “At least 60% of ALL people in the world are stupid and 90% of the rest are apathetic.”

The older I get the more I believe this to be true.

My local newspaper today has an article headlined U.S. ADULTS SCORE BELOW AVERAGE ON WORLDWIDE TEST.

The study is the Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies conducted by the Economic Cooperation and Development and the Education Department’s Center for Education Statistics.

Over 157,00 adults (ages 16 to 55) from more than 20 industrialized countries were tested and the U.S. came in below the international average.

One finding reinforced just how large the gap is between the nations high- and low- skilled workers and how hard is to move ahead when your parents haven’t.

In reading and math those with college educated parents did significantly better than those whose parents did not complete high school.

Yet we still insist that all people are equal and we allow the “ignorant, unwashed masses” to vote. No wonder our government is dysfunctional.

We get what we deserve.

A citizen takes responsibility for the body politic – defending it with his life if necessary- a civilian does not. Robert A. Heinlein:

Stalin referred to the Soviet people as "Useful idiots."

Here in South Africa, no matter how badly the government stuffs up the great unwashed vote them back into power every time, they are too stupid to see the corruption and how it has an adverse affect on their lives.

Don't ya know?

Your vote is the dog and pony show of the lobbyist owned "democracy" we all enjoy.

It's there to make even the apathetic masses "feel good" about themselves.

Ignorance is King, and good for fiat backed business that is modern America.

Brit in Africa, politics in the US is exactly the same. Government has dumbed down the young people, 99% of the media is in the tank for the Democrats (Socialists) Mind numbed robots vote for whoever the media props up and promises them more free ****. Imagine in the middle of WW2 Britain voting out Churchill and bringing back good old Nevelle Chamberlain. That's how screwed we are. Friend of mine showed his 18 year old daughter to point out the USA on a world map, she had no clue. A 25 year old guy argued with me that Kenya is a state, and that's why Obama could be president. Got a million stories like that.

Didn't the Brits vote out Churchill before the War ended?

Indeed they did and by what these days would be called a landslide, the Labour party gained about 240 seats at the expense of Churchills party and won with a 12-13% swing.

The election was in July 1945 so it was after VE day but before VJ day and Labour had widespread support amongst servicemen.

There was a quote by Anthony Burgess that Churchill was not nearly as popular with soldiers at the front as he was with officers and civilians.
