No but someone blatantly avoiding logic while simultaneously supportting a highly unpopular opinion, stating they destroyed an expensive piece of property., which just so happens to be one of the recently fetishized items via internet dweebs because of their siblings highly popular and clearly logical opinion is a bit far fetched. Even though you really really want people with 2 X chromosomes to be so stupid because it makes shit like this make sense, but unfortunately for you most humans are functioning on the same cognitive level. Gullible shit.

Wrong on most counts, but as you were describing the average FJ user I'm not sure where you wanted to go with that. I'm also not sure why you'd mock someone for something that isn't a fault.

Vocabulary has a lot to do with open-mindedness. It correlates tightly and it's not hard to imagine why; language is the medium by which we communicate ideas and being able to more precisely interpret/convey those ideas leads to a lot less misunderstanding. I suppose you'll write this off as another tangent, but that's pretty close-minded of you.

In any case, I learn a fair bit from being forced to articulate my views - so thanks I guess.

The argument that was that 'the powers that be' are using said 'lies' to make people stupid - the obvious implication is that believing said things makes you stupid. I'm not arguing that point though; some portion of people being relatively stupid is kind of a given. The issue is cause/effect. The author thinks people become stupid because they are taught these things, I'd argue it's the stupid people who believe them - and not for arbitrary reasons.

The notion that everyone in a society benefits from expanding their mind is wrong. It's a pleasant notion favored by the smart people who have benefited and get to intellectually challenge themselves in a job like teaching, but it simply breaks down when you try to apply it to everyone in a society - sorry.

On a side note, claiming that everyone can benefit from expanding their mind then faulting me for my vocabulary is a little dissonant.

I'm going to make some assumptions about you seeing as you're anonymous and it might entertain me; I'm guessing yank, around 20 years old, you have a few close friends but you're not exactly popular, you spend too much time on the internet and you're a habitual masturbator. Vocabulary has nothing to do with open-mindedness, you weren't being faulted you were being mocked, none of what you've said has anything to do with anything, I've already demonstrated your passion for debate in lieu of debatable topics. You have nothing to prove by dedicating your time to arguing with me.

Attractiveness, pack status, procreation, ect. aren't arbitrary 'lies'; they're things that used to be important for natural selection and people enjoy them on a primal level. To disillusion someone, to marginalize their perceived purpose in life, is to deny them that enjoyment. Why tell someone they're stupid for liking what they like; even if it's true?

Awareness and intelligence don't necessarily have anything to do with profession, but a high level of either will make a menial job downright miserable - was the point.

The only person to have suggested that anybody is stupid for any reason is you, the message in question is not shunning anybody, it simply offers the idea of independent thought and preservation of the mind, read it. You're radicalizing a non-issue, there is no threat of marginalization, oppression or assimilation whatsoever. The image in question merely suggests that every one of us can benefit from expanding our minds, personally I consider that a truism; asking who we want to be rather than who those that seek to gain from our insecurities want us to be. That isn't to say that this harmless ideology should be somehow regimented and enforced and any subsequent "primal urges" or ways of living or thinking quashed, that was never even hinted at. I think you're a sensationalist, you're talking a lot but you're not actually saying anything. There is no imminent overhaul of our society, it's just an individuals shared introspection, something for the individual to think about, that's all. Stop getting so worked up, pretending there's even an issue at hand on the off chance you get the opportunity to lord your thesaurus.com vocabulary over someone less stupid than you, you pompous, anonymous, self-inflating, tangent-weaving, drama-queen. That's all folks!
