The follow-up question to the first question about stupidity, is if you had a million dollars, could you spend it in a way to reduce the level of stupidity in you area? I think that the second question can only be answered through trial and error, I don’t think that you can put a price on how to reverse stupidity.
My first thought when it comes to the question of stupidity and a cure is to quote “Forrest Gump” stupid is as stupid does. Are people born stupid? Can you read yourself out of stupidity? According to the dictionary the definition of stupidity is the lack of intelligence, wisdom, common sense or wit. Taking all that into consideration, there might not be a cure for stupidity but instead an educational therapy program and a devoted teacher to administer that program would be the answer. I believe the teacher to be key because if one is stupid than he or she would not be capable to understand the educational program on their own, they would need the patience, discipline and guidance of an instructor.
This is a sad prompt because I joke, especially when I am abnormally tired, that I feel stupid from fatigue but I know that I am not stupid, it something that I never had to worry about or even contemplate. My children aren’t stupid either, they may have off days in school but they are few and far between and the reasons are always socially motivated. I feel bad about the question of there being a cure for stupidity and that is why I am babbling because I feel ill at ease about the topic, it makes me sad for stupid people.
Stupidity be itself is harmless, it becomes dangerous when it is combined with hatred, bigotry and violence.
