(Preamble: I’m still here!)
“Behold: man. Poor, foolish creature. We humans are the only living organism (that we know of), able to gather up all of the information in the world and put it in a box. Then, after finishing, we sat in front of the box and looked at it – and got information confused with knowledge. On a planet where ignorance has been the status quo, such a thing could happen. So now, instead of a planet populated with uneducated poor people serving the handful who got a clue first, we are a planet of idiots with boxes full of information who think that this makes them educated and knowledgeable. I am a human, these are my people. Humanity has come full circle, from being jesters to graduating as full-fledged clowns.”
We can do better.
