Fact is, people are stupid through out the system: everything is either fucked up or on the decline - healthcare, military (the iran drone - I read that at some point, they used to send data back and forth to satellites and UAC without encryption, wondering if Iran used that or was it one of other many security holes?), immigration, crime, fiscal/monetary/taxation policies, regulation, "lobby-ism", media, etc. etc. Even Obama and his buddies, the so-called "intellectual elite", have no fucking clue.
Things are not wrong because the very few people like me think that most people are stupid - rather because everyone is stupid.
