How can they survive?
Stupid people took over in the last half of the last century. And have no intention of relinquishing their power. I watched this takeover in amazement – but to everyone else, it seemed perfectly normal. To their minds – stupidity was seen as its opposite – intelligence. And not only that – but an extreme form of intelligence! And they did not mind allying themselves with it.
I could go on a long rant here about the evils of – Industrialization, Capitalism, the Market, etc. – but to my mind, these are nothing compared to the destructiveness of a reversal of values. There was no way this culture could be attacked – because attacking it only made it stronger!
Their logic is simple – might makes right! This can only be shown to be false much later, when that might can no longer make itself felt.
What will happen, and is happening right now – is a moral and economic collapse. The two go together. This is the end of the world, for the stupid people now in control – but they don’t know how to stop it.
But it may provide an opening for some smart people.
