But your concept of silly and stupid are totally devoid of objective
definition.

Have you ever heard of the power of positive thinking?  What are you doing
to make things better?

Aren't you the one that wrote that you didn't have time to make schools
better?

Take some responsibility for the world in which you live and work to make
it a better place.  Think education sucks?  Become an educator.  Volunteer
your non-working hours to afterschool education.  Do something.

Unfortunately, however, making the world a better place requires hope and
hope for a better world requires faith in your fellow man.  You have none
and so you have doomed yourself and everyone else to suffer because of
your laziness and apathy.

(And hey, if people are so stupid, why does it matter if things get worse
or better?  Don't they just deserve to get a shitty world?)
