The Rise of Stupidity

There are a lot of stupid people in the world. If you go to restaurants, bars or even Walmart, you can't help but overhear conversations. They seem to be louder so that their opinion is heard. Years ago, people would not stand out in front of the supermarket voicing their opinions for everyone to hear. Now we have Social Media Platforms and they amplify stupidity. Any thought that comes to mind is immediately broadcast. There is no delay to think about it. Years ago, their circle of listeners was small so the effect was minimal. Now the remarks are ranging far and wide, to every naive mind and those with a limited capacity to understand facts. They put forward their absurd ideas and find willing followers among the sheep.
I read this morning about BLM in Denmark. They want white supporters to stand at the back of the groups. A kick in the face to stupid people. In another article a woman complained about the Webster Dictionary and their explanation of racism. She wanted it change to show that it was just whites suppressing blacks. So, it is to be altered.
Personally, I'm sick and tired of all this crap.
On the light side, yesterday I was eating a bagel with cream cheese. It slipped from my hand and fell unto a mat. Against all odds, it fell right side up.
