The biggest problem in the Western world is that the average man on the street thinks he's a rocket scientist. He's actually not much better than a large naked chimpanzee with a primitive vocabulary who can be trained to do a few simple tricks. It should be illegal to show them a film like THE INCONVENIENT TRUTH because they are easily excited and when they begin emoting they believe they are thinking. The common man can't think. 90% of the people you know, personally, are biologically incapable of reasoning. It's a genetic skill which can only be cultivated through example and this generation has neither the genes nor any good examples before them.
Television is the biggest culprit because Oprah Winfrey types are constantly repeating how edjumificated and inntellamajent we all are. If we're all so intellamajent, what the hell are we doing carpet bombing 600,000 civilians to death without so much as a coherent explanation? Somebody must be working a lot of evil, because if we're all so good then who the hell is manufacturing mass quantities of stupidity? The warehouse is overstocked across the planet and we're having to dump boxes of stupid in open fields to rot because we can't unload them.
Stupidity is the universal constant for mankind and Oprah is the chief idiot in charge for the entire globe. The influence of this crazy lesbian childless bitch is greater than that of the President. It doesn't take a degree in astrophysics to postulate that the majority of the Western world is dumb as donuts. They're the perfect audience for a guy like Al Gore.
