But imbecility is a word I mean precisely. It is the belief that something is its opposite. The imbecile believes folly is wisdom, ignorance is enlightenment, and violence is decency, go ahead and take a well-known truth — the imbecile’s main tasks in life are to a) believe its opposite is the truth b) be immovably convinced of it c) in the face of all logic, reason, evidence, or thought d) to proselytize imbecility, to convert thinking people into imbeciles and e) to submit, always, to bigger imbeciles, to worship them like substitute parents and/or deities. Just think of Trumpism and Brexit and ask yourself if they don’t exemplify all the points above, perfectly.
Beam me up Scotty! There is no intelligent life down here!!!!!!
