Stupidity is Albert Nerenberg's hard-hitting and often hilarious look at stupidity as a driving force in society. The documentary is a controversial investigation into what may be a characteristic unique to our species-a chronic resistance to intelligence. Stupidity sets out to determine whether our culture is hooked on deliberate ignorance as a strategy for success. From Adam Sandler to George W. Bush, from the IQ test to TV programming and the origins of the word 'moron', Nerenberg examines the "dumbing down" of contemporary culture. Stupidity careens at warp speed through sound bites on topics from television news and reality TV shows, to Internet sites and popular films. Featuring opinions and comments from some of today's most recognizable figures, cultural critics, authors and academics, including John Cleese and Rick Mercer, Noam Chomsky and David Frum, Salma Hayek and Michael Moore, Stupidity reveals that, despite our culture's extensive access to knowledge and information, humans continue to choose stupidity. The film suggests that unless stupidity is dealt with, we may all be doomed. Stupidity has been a hit wherever it has gone-selling out film festivals and igniting storms of controversy. The film has had several theatrical runs in North America and won the award for Best Documentary at the Atlantic City Film Festival. Stupidity is directed by Albert Nerenberg; produced by Shannon Brown in association with CBC Newsworld and The Documentary Channel.

(didn't see it on Amazon...)  
I know someone who chooses ignorance and admits to it, which is such a stupid, lazy thing to do. He considers it too much trouble to learn something new. Fifty-something and thinking he knows enough, he'd rather stay ignorant and base his decisions on what he *doesn't* know than take the time to learn and understand. I think he stopped learning somewhere around his eighth year in school. Good mechanic, tho.

The funny thing about folks like that? You can never win an argument with them. They won't admit they're wrong. They are a success in their own minds.
