I Think, Therefore I Am … (probably wrong)
IT IS WHAT IT IS:
America is imploding and we are neither figuratively nor literally smart enough to fix it.
Not in our lifetimes
We are not smart enough to keep our own lives in order.
We are incapable of fixing our race problem, our immigration problem, our sexual mores problem and the list goes on.
We are not smart enough to truly listen to each other, compromise with each other nor learn to sufficiently co-exist with each other.
Whether Democrat or Republican, we were not even smart enough to prevent the election of a Donald Trump to the Presidency of the United States. And we are certainly not smart enough to know why that election was not smart.
IT IS WHAT IT IS BECAUSE:
We are genetically incapable of being as smart as we ‘need’ to think we are.
We are not even smart enough to ‘get’ that we might have a problem. For most of us the problem is with the ‘other’ person, who we are smart enough to know is really the ‘stupid’ one.
America itself was partially founded on a gene pool incapable of dealing with a reasoned, rational reality.
We have allowed Religion to impede our evolution towards intelligence. We believe in our own personal interpretation and application of the Golden Rule and the Ten Commandments.
Our Tribe mentality has thwarted our evolution towards a morality predicated on a belief in the ‘Greater Good’.
IT IS WHAT IT IS: ARE WE TOO SMART TO NOT BE SMART ENOUGH TO LISTEN? YOU THINK?
