  1. The only true stupidity is stubborn, willful ignorance; we’re all idiots on a daily basis after all: thus, no notion of stupidity is worth much attention except occasions of arrogant persistence in beliefs and behaviors that lack some accurate and useful correspondence with reality.

    • My point exactly! What prompted this post? The notion that people in this country STILL persist on disbelieving scientifically proven facts such as human-influenced climate change! They subject the OBVIOUS to their own “politics of resentment,” which–as Frank Rich (NYTimes) puts it–are impervious to facts.
