As a species, we humans have made many a terrible/amazing thing. However, we’re fundamentally a stupid bunch, and I feel that’s what our legacy should be.
It’s not just me, right? I’m of the mind that we’ve given ourselves over to stupidity. And I’ve got the Internet research to prove it.
We live in troubling, sensitive times. A time where harmless jokes offend, and indeed the harm we feel is also a joke.
The recent tragedy of Chris Cornell taking his own life highlights a greater issue. As the rates of suicide grow, I’m wondering if it’s a condition of the society we built and one we won’t shake.
