The Basic Laws of Human Stupidity

Stupid people are everywhere. And, as we all know, no class, race, sex, occupation, political affiliation, country of origin, or degree of wealth has a monopoly on stupidity. Stupid people cause profound damage to individuals and to society at large. But, for the most part, stupid people operate in a kind of anonymity. Consequently, we are frequently ambushed by them and pay the often hefty price.

 Ignorance is a choice:

These are a few statistics of literacy in America:

  • 50% of U.S. adults are unable to read an 8th grade level book
  • 33% of U.S. high school graduates will never read a book after high school
  • 42% of college students will never read another book after they graduate
  • 80% of U.S. families did not buy a book this year
  • 70% of adults have not been in a book store in the past 5 years
  • American high school students today are reading books intended for children with reading levels of a 10 year old
