One of my first blog posts was called The Stupid Vaccine. (It was actually my second post. Technically speaking, I can only have one “first” post) I pondered what the world might be like if stupidity were a disease that could be eradicated by vaccination. Such wishful thinking. As much as I would love to see this kind of Utopia come into existence, my fear is that we are instead heading for the future predicted (comically and yet with frightening clarity) by the movie Idiocracy. This would refer, for those that might not know, to the concept of rule by idiots. (Some might argue convincingly that we are already there).
