It’s been quite uncomfortable watching the outcome from the combination of layers and layers of lack of good sense for the last 5 years. The amount of information is overwhelming. From flat earth to not wearing a mask on an airborne pandemic.
It takes a lot of restrain to not get scandalized, to do not express a proportional reaction to unrestricted lack of good sense.
Answering my friends asking why I was so troubled about other’s stupidity wasn’t easy. After all, what is the problem of someone else think the earth is flat, the dinosaurs never existed, moon land deniers, and so on?
Unfortunately, the world we are living at this moment made it very easy to answer my questioners:
“Now, stupidity is killing people.” I hope this addresses well my inquirer.
I had a co-worker that used to often say:
“There is no such thing as good sense”.
The very first time I heard his saying I completely disagreed. But I became an observer, and as time passed by, I had to surrender, he was right.
“There is no such thing as good sense”
I believe there is a causation and correlation for this behavior. Identifying all causes and their correlations is still a work in progress.
And it is why I call THE HYPOTHESIS.
