Is everyone in this country consumed by measuring their wealth and their personal rating of their own mental superiority against those far more unfortunate?
I am speaking from a tiny circle, but if I hear one more time how “stupid” everyone else is, I just might scream. How stupid they are because they don’t have jobs and need food stamps to feed their families. How stupid they are because of unwanted pregnancies, and how stupid “they” are because they smoke or because they are fat. How stupid they are because they can’t magically rise above to the “smart” persons level of superiority and success.
How stupid are all the smart people that they can’t figure out how to effectively educate people? How stupid are the smart people who expect uneducated people to teach themselves to read? How stupid are the smart people when they think spending money to help feed hungry people is a waste of money? How stupid are smart people when they close down family planning centers? How stupid are the smart people when they cut safety forces and expect crime to diminish? How stupid are smart people when they allow their cities to crumble into despair?
Take away all the food stamps let poor people hunt their food like prehistoric times. Let the children and babies go hungry. Take away shelter, they can live under bridges. After all this is America, where everyone can make it. No excuses, only blame, blame and more blame.
“Smart” people bully and blame the poor and the uneducated because that’s what makes them feel superior. This is a destructive and negative mindset that accomplishes absolutely nothing good.
Exactly how smart is that?
