There’s two major types of stupid when it comes to political and social issues in the West.
The first type I see in a lot of White people. Not so much in Asians because they are way less stupid than White people. God bless those nerdy Mongoloids! Where would we be without their inscrutable asses?
The problem I see with so many Whites is they understand the question, but they’ve got the wrong answer! This doesn’t even apply to political questions where it is much more difficult to state empirically what is right or wrong. But getting outside of politics we can get more into philosophical moral binaries. Words have definitions. What’s the definition? See that dictionary over there? It’s calling your name. Go talk to it.
I will give a brief example. I have explained to people on this site endlessly that there are two different definitions of the word “genius.”
1. An X metric on an IQ scale. Often ~130 in the US (though I would argue that 140 is better) and 145 in Europe. Over 130, 140 or for sure 145, and wa-la! You’re a genius. Yay! Well, you’re a genius on an IQ scale, which doesn’t mean a heck of a lot. In fact there are probably 3 million geniuses in the US alone if we use the conservative 140 mark as a limit. That’s a lot of geniuses!
2. Now there is another definition of genius. You all know what that means. This means some sort of a creative or scientific genius like Einstein, Plato, Machiavelli, Beethoven or James Joyce. You know what that definition means. Obviously, we don’t have 3 million creative geniuses of this type in the US. Who knows how many we have, but it’s probably not a large number.
Now the problem is that the population is mostly mentally retarded. I don’t care if the average IQ is 100. If it walks like a duck, it’s a duck. And if you act retarded, you’re retarded, period. The Special Olympics is that-a-way, folks!
Now there are few things more retarded than society, probably because society is formed by your average moron. Remember what George Carlin said? “Think of how stupid your average person is in the US. That’s what a 100 IQ means. Now think again. Half the people are even dumber than that!”
So society and its rules being a reflection of a nation of fools, it makes sense that society’s rules, definitions and whatnot are about as retarded as its population. Now society says that “genius” means only one thing. It means your Einstein type of genius.
Your average person cannot comprehend any other definition, and most people act like they are blowing a transistor out if you ever say anything like, “You know, that word has more than one definition. There’s definition A and Definition B, and it depends on what definition you are talking about.” You say that, and most people give you this blank look. That’s because your average person is so dumb that they can’t really grasp the idea that words might have more than one meaning. That’s asking a bit too much, you know.
On this site, I have patiently explained over and over that there are at least two different definitions of genius – one is simply an arbitrary metric on an IS scale, and the other is the definition we all know of Thomas Jefferson, Bach or Darwin. And a lot of people still don’t get it. Every time I use the IQ definition, some retards think I am referring to the Beethoven definition. I tried to tell them over and over, but they don’t get it.
Now, just how stupid are they? They are not that stupid! Why not? Because at least they understand the damned question for Chrissake! Give people some credit. They get the question completely (Yay!), but they’ve got the wrong answer.
The problem with this situation, which you will run into everywhere you go in society, is that people who understand the question but have the wrong answer are rather difficult to set straight. You try to point out to them that they have the wrong answer. You tell them what the right answer is. You patiently explain the difference between the right answer and the wrong answer.
They nod their heads and…they go right back to the wrong answer again. You follow them for a while, and they keep repeating the wrong answer again and again. They’re basically Myna Birds. Dumb Myna Birds who keep repeating something wrong over and over. You try to talk to them, but nothing works. Getting them to see the right answer is like pounding a hole in concrete with your bare hands. Eventually you give up.
So there’s one kind of stupid. That’s the White Stupid, the Type 1 Stupid, which is like a poorly programmed Myna Bird with a skull of concrete that can’t even be chipped. And that’s the Stupidity of the Whites, of the 100 IQ. If you live in a White town, you will run into these human skipping records quite a bit. But let us give credit where it is due. At least they get the question! And that’s more important than you think.
Ok now there is another sort of stupid that is much worse. I live with a bunch of Mexicans now, and here you don’t even see the White Stupid that much. In fact, if I see the White Stupid, I almost want to jump for joy because it’s so rare hereabouts.
With Mexicans you run into the Type 2 Stupid, the Mexican Stupid. Whereas the Whites get the question fine but keep getting the wrong answer, you can’t even get that far with the Mexicans. That’s because most of these Mexicans around here don’t even understand the question in the first place.
You can’t ask their opinions about much of any important issue because they don’t even have any. Why not? Because in order to take a position on an issue (give an answer), you have to at least understand the issue in the first place (the question). And around here, what you see all day every day, is a lot of folks who don’t even understand the question and even worse, they don’t give two shits about the fact that they don’t know the question because they don’t even care!
They’re sort of mad at you for asking in the first place. I mean how dare you ask their opinion on some political issue. You know full well that they don’t even understand 95% of the issues, much less that they’ve taken stands on them, so why are you asking in the first place? You trying to act smart of something? Who do you think you are?
I honestly think Type 2 Stupid is much worse. There is hope for a Type 1 Stupid. Quite a few folks can be made to understand that they answered the question wrong, and here is the right answer, as painful as it is to for the ego to take such a deadly blow. So there’s some hope there, a glimmer in darkening sky.
But the person who doesn’t even understand the question in the first place? Well, no. Abandon all hope, ye who attempt to converse here. You’re not even hammering at a concrete wall. At least with the wrong answer there’s a damned wall to pound away it.
When you try to tell someone the right answer when they don’t even know the question, that is so much worse. You don’t even have a concrete wall to pound on. Instead, you are trying to smash a hole in a cloud with your fist. You might dent that wall if you hit hard enough. You might break your hand, but at least there’s a chance. You can never punch a hole in a cloud. It’s like a Zen koan: “Ponder the sound of one man punching a hole in a cloud.” There’s nothing there at all. Nothing to start, nothing to finish. There’s no job at all. There’s just endless flailing in the dark, a boxing match with a ghost. Just give up already.
Stupid World is here already. It’s inevitable, so just lie back and enjoy it.
