it's tempting to think that most people are 'stupid'--

especially those who portray an air of being intelligent.

But, if stupidity is behind all of the horror of this country's present situation--

then there really is no hope, except for annhilation--

and I have to believe there is something better for those of us who want freedom, than to become nihilistic.

Perhaps you were being 'funny'--

though I doubt it.

When I start to believe that everyone around me is stupid then I realize that *I* am acting like one of the elitists I like to blame for this mess.

If *I* am not stupid, and *they* are, then perhaps *I* should "control" *them"--

not a happy thought; I don't want to control anyone. I want to find out exactly what is happening. I want to get to the 'bottom' of this, and saying that most people are stupid and that is why the world is a mess--

doesn't lend to solutions.

But, if you are correct, I rest my case.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--
