another basic problem is that we overestimate our (human) kind. up to the point that the us smart, them dumb mindset does not end with puberty as it should. scientists call the mass dumb, artists call the mass dumb, mass call the mass dumb, it's a vicious circle. what a fantastic, reasonable, educated piece of work!
get a bunch of nobel-prized scientists, a bunch of well known artists, a bunch of janitors and some eskimo fishermen. when you're done hearing each other's bragging start discussing about their personal aspects. and hey! they're all facing the exact same issues with their partners and the rest of their (inter)personal aspects. smart what? dumb what?
it feels ok to bitch about the (other) mass, good old placebo pill to make the rest of the titles stand out for a while. it's easy to call now dumb, something that a civilization of the pre-classic period guessed back then. just as it's always easy to blame a majority of the population for reproducing mass media hysteria. when you take them off the g'dang tv box, motivate/educate them, nice things happen. lo + behold the few clowns w/ monkey suits wouldn't like that, gotta keep 'em hypnotized to get the votes on Sunday and keep ripping them off (some people think this is called freedom/democracy). problem is why "we" educated fools fail to recognize the booby-traps.
about those damned sci-fi movies of the 80s? all the fake intelligence and smartassness that they were pushing to the mass for 2000AD?
damn scientists! where is my jetpack?
