I think stupidity should count as a mental illness.

People who are uneducated and unintelligent shouldn't be allowed into certain fields of work.
And I'm not talking about people with bad grades in school, because I'm sure you all know that grades in school hardly show anything about a person's actual intelligence, and in alot of cases show a very miniscule part of their actual education.

I believe that part of the examination process in schools should consist of a scientific intelligence test, conducted several times in a different way with the average of all tests as the final result.

That way, there wouldn't be any idiots working in important jobs, no morons sitting behind desks in government offices, and no nincompoops sending me to 10 different rooms in a building when all I wanted was to have my passport extended!

People who are stupid should be removed from any kind of higher paying job. Higher taxes to support the idiots in the world? Sure! As long as I don't have to deal with them when I want to open a new bank account, or have them run my country!

am I overreacting? should I show more compassion towards the idiots of this world?

No. But only the truly stupid people need to be punished. The stupid ones that think they are really smart.

Nah it's fine, i have an upmost hate for the ignorance of mankind, mostly the U.S., but people in general. And much of the time, maturity reaches a new low for even the highest respected people, but then again maybe that's why they're immature and ignorant...

It depends what you mean by 'idiot'. I agree that people who can't do their job properly shouldn't be in that field of work. It's like telling a mechanic to be a Doctor, it's not something they can just do. But at the same time, you shouldn't discriminate against someone because they happen to be a bit dim.

Well they're not going to get a job without going to school at all...So it's pretty irrelevant. This thread is about idiots with important jobs.

I'm sorry, but wanting the homeless and people who never went to school to not have important jobs isn't exactly anything new.

I'm rendered speechless by your incredible wisdom and fascinating way of viewing things. You should write a book. Perhaps, if you worked hard enough and exerted as much mental energy as you could, you could create a book with black and white pictures that small children could later color with crayons, or perhaps colored pencils.

Oh, and the pictures could pop up when you turned the pages.

What is the expected speed? If I order something from musiciansfriend and I expect it to be here within a week and it comes a day later than expected should I demand that the postal worker has a mental illness and should be sacked as well as being able to claim mental illness on his taxes?

no, of course not.

That's not what I mean, and of course the part about "mental illness" is a gross exaggeration (pardon my spelling). I'm just pissed off at the amount of stupid people in higher-paying jobs I've been meeting lately, you know, the people at the bank who send you to 20 different rooms and none of them is the right one, or the people at government offices who clearly have never heard of a thing called common sense?
