THE NEW STUPID: The Rise of the Truly Ignorant!

The internet is a mind-blowing fucker of an invention, like the wheel and sliced bread, like the internal combustion engine and tin cans.

It has an endless amount of information, of ideas, and opinions there waiting for those who seek to expand their minds and grow in everyway.

Ok, there’s an endless amount of porn, but pornography is like malaria, something that effortlessly adapts so as to maintain its survival. So forget about that, because when dealing with porn, there is only one truth.

That there will always be more!

So, here we have a means to gain information and both objective and subjective truth on almost every subject that the brain can dredge up from the fevered avenues of human curiosity

From UFO’s, home made video’s, chat rooms and lengthy dialogues on the most popular conspiracy theories of the time, right the way up to English grammar, foreign language translation and how to grow carrots! You can communicate with people thousands of miles away without a problem, and send images globally in an instant. There possibly has never been so greater a tool for communication and the transfer of knowledge since some smart arse came up with the idea of using drums or smoke signals.

Such a powerful tool for knowledge and communication has never before been seen in the history of Mankind.

Its power is truly breath-taking.

And above all, it is almost totally user based. The internet would be an empty realm of absolute nothing without the input of humanity.

Yes, as with pornography, the greasy fingers of the corporations is evident everywhere, although there is also the hand of small enterprise and business, that otherwise would be restrained and handicapped in their commercial outreach. But for the most part, it’s down to normal people

But, the inevitable outcome seems to be that instead of embracing this it seems to have created a new sub species of human.

The new stupid are out there, ready to spew their narrow minded views onto a global audience. Views seething with hatred, with bigotry, with ignorance, with all the things they feel they can safely express from behind the anonymity of the fibre optic and phone line, secure in the knowledge that they can say what they like without fear of having three shades of shit kicked out of them!

Hey, I’m all for freedom of speech, but not when it goes hand in hand with ignorance.

The new stupid don’t care about the facts, don’t care about learning or the knowledge that a few clicks of the mouse can give them. They seem to have side stepped all the things the internet can offer in favour of simply using it as another medium to express their wretched, bestial ignorance.

Lets put aside the appalling rape of the English language, and the strange fact (in my own experience) that the majority of these ill-bred troglodytes seem to originate in the US, and focus on the total lunacy that they can summon up as they stab at the keys, fresh spittle dribbling from their lips.

The best way to illustrate this is by example.

Sometime ago, but still very recently, I made a video. It was titled Good Bye George, and was a farewell to the last great American dictator, George ‘Dubya’ Bush. It wasn’t really harsh, as have been others on the subject of the former US administration, though the end might have upset people and explained the comment I go. It simply said, after a short collection of photo,

“May History bend down and deliver a great turd on your memory, removing it from both sight, and retrospection. Its discarded remains of interest only to the dung beetles and scatologists of history. Farewell and good riddance.”

Provocative maybe, but it was from the heart.

The comment I got was as follows.

AmericanKnowItAll

You fucking moron…

It’s people like President BUSH who saved your stupid ass twice.

You pathetic faggot

Now, I like comments.

In the heart of every poster on news group, forum, chat site and video host, beats the yearning to make something that inspires both praise and criticism. But when it pointless abuse without reason or knowledge, then I for one, know that I have attracted the foul attentions of the new stupid.

And here is the heart of it.

The ability to hide behind the net and simply abuse others simply because you are too stupid, too ignorant or too indoctrinated into a certain way of thinking, is the sign of these wretched 21st century malcontents, seething behind the hardware and nimbly sidestepping how great a medium the internet can be. In the end they are simply the offensive prank callers of the digital age.

So, watch out for these miserable asinine bigots, and if you fall foul of them, simply use long words and confound the fools. Or better still, ignore them because like posters crave comment, the new stupid yearn for it doubly so.

The worst thing you can do to them is offer them silence, and they will limp back to the pathetic, lonely REAL lives they lead beyond the keyboard, frustrated and muted and so very, very stupid.
