Pew Quiz: Indeed
Pew offered a quiz to test your remedial understanding of American Politics.
I mean r-e-m-e-d-i-a-l.
WireCutter posted on it, and his observations are dead-on. Who are these people who score zero? They represent 4% of those taking the quiz, which is scary since one would assume that to take the quiz a person has enough interest in politics to find it in the first place.
If you can't fix Stupid, what are we supposed to do when it is overwhelming and killing the few who are not stupid? Are we obligated to reduce our existence to accommodate the lowest common point?
Forget the walking brain-dead who scored zero. Consider that a full 42% of those taking the quiz scored 7 or fewer correct out of 13 total questions.
Have you ever seen the Leno bit when he goes out into public and asks people on the street basic questions about basic stuff? Remember the gal who swore it was the Great Wall of China that separated East & West Germany during the Cold War? Same same.
Sorry folks, if you give Liberty more than a one in a million shot, you are not properly considering the Stupid Factor.
A link to WireCutter's post is below. NSFW and don't go if you don't like girls. I think his mind wandered when confronted by the scope of the Stupid that has been bred into our society, and he drifted to topics that really matter in life...girls.
I like girls.
