why the world sucks and how to save it


This is very simple. The world sucks because people suck, and people suck because they’re stupid.

You want to save the world? The solution is free education. Once all human knowledge is completely free and accessible anywhere, anytime then everything else will follow.

Who should pay for it? You. Everyone. If you live in the United States of America then most of your federal income tax goes to bombing brown people. That money should be spent on giving you and everyone else free education. Any politician who doesn’t make that their number one priority is the barrier between us and utopia, but politicians choose to continue to use your money to fund an unnecessary and destructive weapons industry. If you want to know why, read Noam Chomsky.

Since your elected leaders won’t spend your tax dollars to give you free education then Hollywood should. Second only to religion, Hollywood has been the largest producer of stupidity in all of human history. The majority of all media content produced in Hollywood is stupid. It’s designed to appeal to the lowest common intellectual denominator. It’s brain candy, and most people in first world countries binge on brain candy most of the time they’re not at work or school, and it makes them stupid.

Hollywood owes the world free education to atone for the stupidity it has created. Who is your favorite celebrity? That person is a millionaire and has played a role in making you, your friends, your enemies and countless strangers dumber. Your favorite celebrity should pay to build a free online school that offers video classes on every subject broken down by topic.

If Hollywood won’t do it then the richest person in the world should pay for it. You know how you become the richest person in the world? You sell stuff, and you pay your workers as little as possible to produce something everyone needs and that is as cheap as possible to reproduce, and you sell it for as high a price as you can. Then you avoid paying as many taxes as possible by exploiting tax havens and loop holes.

The richest person in the world is the world’s biggest legal thief. The richest person in the world has ripped off more people than anyone else in the world. The richest person in the world owes the world a free school that offers instruction in every subject. The richest person in the world can afford to create that school and never have to sacrifice any luxury or necessity in their personal life ever.

If the richest person in the world won’t give the world free education then the smartest people should. MIT has already created a small, free online school. That’s great, but it doesn’t include elementary school lessons on the alphabet or downloadable video clips on how to build and launch a space ship (yet). If MIT doesn’t have the money to give the world that scope of free education then MENSA should pay for it. If MENSA is so smart then the need to fund a free school should be obvious to them.

If high IQ societies won’t fund a free school then the KKK and other hate groups should. If you feel that another group of people are a burden on society then give them a free online school. Once everyone in the world has equal access to education then we can all be fully trained workers with self-actualized minds, and we’ll all be productive members of society. Plus smart people statistically have fewer children. What more could a hater want? Education is the final solution.

If haters won’t save the world then religious groups should. Religions claim to want to help people and to not be greedy. Great. Sell all your temples and ridiculous outfits to pay for school. Or be a hypocrite and stand by and watch the world burn knowing that you have the power to save it but chose not to. Yes, the issue really is that black and white.

If  religion won’t give the world free school then the people should give it to themselves. People on social networks should collaborate and fund it.

Until then stupid people will continue to destroy the world until there’s nothing left.

 

 

 

About wise sloth

Note: The information I share here may seem random, but it explains why I write about a lot of the subjects I do. I was raised poor white Texas trailer trash. At the age of 17 I got baptized in a Southern Baptist Church, and at 18 I attended a Christian college where my Biblical studies promptly led me to the conclusion that Christianity is mythology. I left that school at 19, and a year later I joined the United States Air Force as an all around computer technician. I was stationed in Italy, Germany, Kuwait and Hawaii where I took online and night classes in psychology, which led me to the conclusion that the military is a cult. For all the good things I got out of the military, I never got a good explanation of why we invaded Iraq. So I volunteered to separate from the military early when my career field was downsized and moved back to my home state of Texas. I found that during the seven years I was enlisted, either America had changed or I had. I was dismayed by the apathy, materialism, wastefulness and anti-intellectualism of civilian life in American suburbia. So I sold everything I owned and immigrated to New Zealand. As majestic as that was, it wasn’t the land of milk and honey I was looking for. Unable to find work in the IT sector I managed a warehouse, worked alongside migrant laborers in fruit orchards and vineyards and studied creative writing. For personal and financial reasons I eventually moved back to America. I’m still kicking around trying to get it all figured out. My long term goal is to build an intellectual monastery where smart people can live for free in a stress free environment where they can focus on their life’s work. It would sure help if I got a MacArthur Fellowship, sponsorship and/or an agent. I’ve been blogging since 2006 about topics that I feel are important and don’t get enough attention. The Wise Sloth blog contains editorial, philosophical, instructional, inspirational and satirical posts in the form of essays, lists, comics, and fiction, which tend to be irreverent, humorous and controversial. I update it as often as possible. View all posts by wise sloth
