If the election of Donald Trump in 2016 had not proven it, then coronavirus is proving it once and for all: The United States is filled with people who have a severe disability which compromises their ability to be intelligent.
I’m going to call this disability “idiot freedom”.
Idiot freedom is the dogmatic belief Which says that because I am able to think things, I should be able to do whatever the hell I wanna do regardless of what’s right in front of my face.
Idiot freedom might be understood to stem from four components prevalent in the United States. These are, Christianity, whiteness, freedom, rebelliousness.
While 250 years ago this dogmatism may have worked out really well for a certain set￼￼￼￼￼￼ of close minded, dominance oriented, white people from Europe, but nowadays it amounts to plain stupidity. ￼
