My struggle to not think of people as stupid gets harder and harder every time I check Twitter like I’m checking on an infected wound to see if it has scabbed over yet. It very much has not. Often, when I am there, I will click and read some new conservative viral art…
You're checking Twitter.
Think about that.
What makes you check tweets is the same thing making people stupid: consumptionism.
Consumerism is a system designed to get people to consume.
Consumptionism is the belief that solutions can be somehow marketed and consumed.
The common stupidity is a result of the planned obsolescence of intentional action.
