We’ve been seeing a lot of people scratching their heads and wondering why our self-proclaimed “Elite” are so fucking willfully-ignorant.
Well, FrnakJ explained it all in a scientifical analysis of the left almost 10 years ago.
Most people stop at formal operational thought, but there is a lesser known fifth stage(3) that some reach and become trapped in called postoperational thought. This is when one’s mind becomes so overtaken by navel gazing and hypotheticals completely divorced from experience that his or her mental acuity now operates barely above the senorimotor stage. It’s a special state of stupidity that only the most intelligent can reach. To give an example, let’s say there is a tree lying in one’s path. If it were a simple creature approaching the tree, such as a dog, it would walk around the tree, not knowing of any other option. But, a very intelligent person in the postoperational thought stage could, using his vast intelligence, explain away the existence of the tree and walk right into it. A great intellect is required to be that dumb.
RTWT, it’s funny and spot on.
He’s been the laughtrack of the Funniest End Of Civilization Ever for a long time. He doesn’t just make you laugh, he explains how screwed we are while he’s doing it.
