idiocracy

leave a comment »

I have deleted my bookmarks to news sites.  I do not want to read commentary on this idiotic nation anymore.  The ignorance of this nation, be it symptomatic or willful, is something that I have no control over and no amount of news-following and being irritated on my behalf will resolve it.  There are online communities and forums where the informed can gather to debate and share ideas, but this is is a minority population in our nation.  The majority population is one that is violently content with anti-intellectualism, fairy tales, and obesity.  I will not have their misadventures fouling up my daily psychology anymore.

“The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum—even encourage the more critical and dissident views.  This gives people the sense that there’s free thinking going on while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate.” –Noam Chomsky

What we have here is a machine complex beyond our imaginations—an infinitely intricate conglomerate of water, chemicals, carbon, and even metal—a miracle that has been developed, crafted, and honed for an amount of time that we can not even conceptualize.  For all I have studied and for all that I care, what I can do for you equates to little more than screwing in a few bolts and changing your oil.  You see, what we are dealing with here is the engineering of God, of the cosmos itself—and I am neither of those.

three pieces of advice

“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. If you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is rare and don’t throw it away.” ~Stephen Hawking
