Idiocracy

Yesterday I interviewed then oversaw testing of a very bright young man at a mid-state location.  During discussion afterward he described his frustration with the majority of other “students” at his high school.  He described the majority of the school’s enrollees as having a lack of interest in reasonable things, a lack of respect for self and others, problems with self-direction, and so forth.  He used the term “idiocracy” to describe the mental status of most of the young people enrolled at the school.  I think he meant to say “idiocy,” but the boy’s misstatement surprised and made my colleague and me laugh out loud.  I blurted out, laughing, “Well, that’s our form of government.”  Rule of, by, and for the idiots – frustrating.
