There is a reason this got my attention ...
Relative to the 'intelligentsia', most of the population of the world are idiots:
•   But most of the world are important ... they are a majority, after all;
•   So the sensible thing to do is to understand what the majority really want:
•   This is not 'rocket science' ... in fact it is rather simple;
•   The 'intelligentsia' should spend a lot more time using their ears ... and truly listening!
Sadly ... this is not what is going on in most of political leadership.
