Okay I heard to day that a professor in Iowa was referring to intelligence as a microaggression. All I could think of is this is how the idiocracy begins. Maybe you’ve seen the movie Idiocracy. I can’t endorse it, because it’s not the cleanest thing our there, but the basic premise is that after centuries of the most educated people tending to have less and less children the populace gets dumber and dumber. The premise was interesting, but what I’ve been finding is that you don’t have to be stupid to have stupid ideas. Case in point is this professor. If intelligence is truly a microaggression, and he is a professor who should, I would tend to believe be trying to make people more intelligent, isn’t he adding to the problem, and as a result shouldn’t he resign immediately?

To me it’s this simple. Ideas like Microaggressions are part of the problem. If we have to look for unintentional reasons to be offended, perhaps we need to rethink some things. What would happen if we spent our time looking for ways to love and serve one another instead of looking for problems that were never intended.

I weighed in with a few cartoons this week designed to make us rethink some of this.
