Why not? If we can study geography or physics, why
couldn't we study stupidity? Is stupidity something worse than
physics or geography? Maybe it could be a part of them. Or
maybe vice versa... The profound and thorough
knowledge of this phenomenon should be the most important
priority for science. It's high time to describe stupidity,
to classify its varieties, to learn to recognise it
properly... Is it possible? It is, though won't be easy, no
doubt. Stupidity is not that stupid as it may seem. Oh, no!
Stupidity is very cunning and sly. Can we consider slyness and
cunningness the features, the manifestations of wisdom?
Really doubtful it is. It can camouflage
unexpectedly and extraordinarily. It has numerous, even
uncountable, masks ready for use and puts them on very
cleverly and skilfully. It can disguise same easily, well,
it can even change its form, face, countenance, measures.
What a great number of strategies to be examined, explored
and tested! What a great variety of ducking techniques! What
a great number of escaping methods! How numerous ways of
hiding! A wardrobe full of caps of invisibility. Enormous
talent for mimicry, including the gift which makes
devastating chaos and confusion in one's mind: now,
stupidity takes the form of wisdom, puts on the attire of
wisdom, uses the speech of wisdom, ideally imitate gestures
of wisdom.... What makes the situation much worse is the
fact wisdom quite often sounds really crude (and rude), as
if it didn't know subtleness at all; and although it does
not put the attire of stupidity, does not disguise, it is
considered stupidity. What I'm going to write in this very moment
should be written with very small letters: sometimes
wisdom is just stupid. I don't mean that it is stupid to
be wise, no, simply sometimes wise is just stupid and
that's all. Well, how can we separate and distinguish them?
You see? There's a lot to be learned and explored. There are
plenty of topics for dissertations and scientific
researches. Of course, we are aware that getting BA in
stupidity sounds quite strange, even stupid, since it will
suggest to the stupid that they have a deal with a master of
stupidity, or somebody burdened with enormous, sealed and
confirmed stupidity, while in fact it is not so. Let's
think: BA in geography means only that somebody knows
geography very well, but themselves are not a geography.
Also BA in stupidity means that somebody will only know a
lot about stupidity, but themselves will not be stupid.
Unless they were suppressed by the scale and pace of given
tasks and orders. Fortunately EU confers no titles (because
it considers them stupid – this is one of many reasons), so
you can just stop bother about it.
OK. Let's get to work. We have to hurry up.
Stupidity is not lazy, although it may seem so. No, really not.
On the contrary. It is surprisingly diligent. Does not use a
take-it-easy strategy. Slowly, or maybe not so slowly, it
conquers, one by one, the fortresses of wisdom. We have to
concentrate and defend ourselves more efficiently, even
This is the list of topics for lectures and for meditations at

As for workshops and

a device for detecting stupidity, or a stupidity detector.
