In California, some young folks came up with term like YOLO – You Only Live Once, which has then become some sort of motto.
All resources and consumer products on this planet are disposable and exploitable. We basically do not have to think about our posterity, or anyone else.

Others came up with term like NERD – Never Really Ever Dies
Its definition, of course, shows the completely opposite view.
I am really glad that there are NON-STUPID human beings living in this world.

What is stupidity?

Quoting from Wikipedia(1), “Carlo Maria Cipolla, an economic historian, is famous for his essays about human stupidity, such as ‘The Fundamental Laws of Human Stupidity’.”

One of the Cipolla's five fundamental laws of stupidity says, “A person is stupid if they cause damage to another person or group of people without experiencing personal gain, or even worse causing damage to themselves in the process.”

Oh dear God, please give us wisdom and light.
