It's all just signal bias, we think things are a certain way because we see it more often, not because it is actually common. Most folks are decent. But those who want to rule are all petty tyrants of one sort or another, and elected or not, there is a category of person who thinks they are better than the rest of us. But they know that if they don't keep us squabbling for scraps and following obtuse rules, they won't have their power for long. Like the old story of the lobsters in the bucket, sometimes we need to remember that no one with less power than us is a threat, and just let some stuff go. Plenty of stuff worth being mad about, some dude having a bad drive home isn't on my list.
Hmmmm , there were always stupid people !
Long long log time ago they self regulated ( population control ) by doing something stupid and dying !
Of course as you mentioned , those at the top of the food chain lasted longer and caused all sorts of stupid mischief ! ( I think they call it History )
Just look at Adolf ...
Built up Germany from the Rubble of WW1 into a industrial power , at the fore front of technology at the time .
And what did the Retard do ? Yeah , flushed it all down the toilet trying to steal everything around him ( WW2 ) .
If he wasn't so stupid !!! , all he had to do was buy what he wanted legitimately .. Just like those mega corporations are doing right now !
Yes , the world is owned by mega corporations !
I know there has been population growth , but stupid seems to be rising at a disproportionate rate .
Perhaps technology is to blame ? Stupid is more easily able to communicate with other stupid people , there by spreading the stupid like a virus !
What is that saying your parents used ? Who put that stupid idea into your head ! ( Anyone remember that ? )
Anyways , .............. Stupid is going to destroy the world ! ( I call that a given ) The road we are on ( direction ) ... If smart people don't turn us around ? We are done for !
Just look how quickly US politicians are embracing communist ideas ! Here in Australia we are already there ! Well , actually C19 proved that almost the entire world is there !
Yeah , the entire world ate the Snake Oil BS .... ( The rise of stupid )
