“Stupidity cannot be cured.
Stupidity is the only universal capital crime; the sentence is death.
There is no appeal, and execution is carried out automatically and without pity.
Ignorance is curable. Stupid is forever.”
Adrian Mitchell (24 October 1932 – 20 December 2008) was an English poet, novelist and playwright. A former journalist, he became a noted figure on the British anti-authoritarianLeft. For almost half a century he was the foremost poet of the country’s anti-Bomb movement. Mitchell sought in his work to counteract the implications of his own assertion that, “Most people ignore most poetry because most poetry ignores most people.” In a National Poetry Day poll in 2005 his poem “Human Beings” was voted the one most people would like to see launched into space. “Most people ignore most poetry / because / most poetry ignores most people.”
Since the Vietnam war nothing has really changed except that war-mongers have become more sophisticated about sanitizing acts of mass-murder with remote controlled drones and smart bombs. More “enemies” are killed per square “peace keeping soldier”. Listen to a poem performed by Adrian Mitchell in the video below. Fill in the word “Vietnam” with the word “Iraq” or “Afghanistan” or “Iran”, etc.. Different year…. same old shit.
Nearly everything you will see or read in the “mainstream media” are false fabrications intentionally created to make you stupid, fearful and filled with false information. Your perception of who you are, and of your own universe do not depend on “outside sources of information”. Create your own thoughts. Perceive through your own eyes. Feel what you feel. Be Who You Really Are.
