But no one can be blamed for genuine stupidity! In my view, I therefore hate hubris, ignorance and also very much: plain ugliness [even to a Neo Platonic extent], especially if the persons involved *could* know/afford better...I really hate that; I love understatement, don't to get me wrong, but half-knowledge and "talking about things you don't know enough about" which is ubiquitous in this pseudo democratic age, really really get on my nerves. But the worst thing is: 1) lack of imagination and 2) lack of irony/ respectively taking oneself too seriously/aka an inflated ego- abolish these two and you got your famed world-peace!
