Earlier today, I was skimming Facebook (I know, bad idea) and I came across that, “People are stupid” thing again.
Of course, it’s true, people are stupid.
That’s why writers like Neil Gaiman who assume an audience of smart people are unable to have a career.
That’s why movies like “Lincoln” that appeal to smart people always flop.
That’s why bands like The Grateful Dead who made music that engaged the brain had no success.
That’s why TV shows like The West Wing that are aimed at smart people never go anywhere.
So, yeah, people are stupid. The question is, which people? I’d say it’s the ones who say that people are stupid.
