With Stupid

it occurred to me
not all at once, though
through a series
of diagrams
and self illuminations
that
the problem with stupid
is not genetics, but
rather
Media

let’s begin in this way

what might happen to a mind
that does not utilize
imagination
naturally
as with reading, or using
language the mind must
conceptualize an idea
then
utilize language form
and symbolism to transmit
the idea in a manner
that another mind
can conceive
but
instead passively ingests information
from media communications?

assuming that this is true, and
reasonable
and I should see no reason
for it not to be
then
let’s alter the diagram
by placing a child
during its formative years
in front of a television, or
similar media device(s)

and consider what
may happen to an unused
imagination

would a significantly smaller
portion
of a developing mind not
be overpowered by more
dominant features?

add to this diagram
a generation raised by
the unimaginative
in the same
fashion

and you have a populace
of
stupid.

thank you.

post script:
if One cannot think for themselves
and is dependant on information
sources for guidance, then
a continued manipulation
on the part of the provider
is of obvious disguise.
