People Are Stupid

Whether the researchers are testing people’s ability to rate the funniness of jokes, the correctness of grammar, or even their own performance in a game of chess, the duo has found that people always assess their own performance as “above average” — even people who, when tested, actually perform at the very bottom of the pile.-People Aren't Smart Enough for Democracy to Flourish, Scientists Say

Too stupid for democracy, and Obama likes it like that. That way he and the political elite can continue to bamboozle the morons and hand out free birth control to sluts (let's face it, many are, aren't they?) and then proclaim the people have spoken and voted for their schemes. These are also the same idiots Obama has convinced deserve to go to college, again, with the Federal government getting involved and driving up the cost of higher education. Now that's stupid.


  1. Too stupid for democracy... but smart enough to self-govern?

    1. You're confused again, as usual. There is a difference between a ruling elite manipulating people (as you know happens) in the name of "democracy" to legitimatize their control, and a stateless society where such an elite does not have the apparatus of fake democracy and th4e state's force to maintain power.

    2. Yeah... I think you're confused. You think a bunch of people who can't even see through simple rhetoric are capable of governing themselves... but not capable of picking competent leaders.

      You keep saying "elite" like it's a bad thing, as well, even in a post where you point out how fucking stupid most people are.

    3. If you think what we've got is democracy, you are sadly deluded.

      Elite, it depends, doesn't it? There is a natural elite, in some sense, but that's not the same as those who want power over others and use the force of the state to achieve it. You're equivocating on the word "elite", but that's your usual m.o., isn't it.
