Intellect is one of the most valued things we as human beings have. We put our most intelligent on the front lines with high hopes of them representing us all equally.
People pay tens of thousands of dollars to climb the ladder of society through an education system that provides people of above average IQs with a sense of self satisfaction.
Sure, some of these people go on to change the world with critical thinking and general know-how, but are they the only ones capable of such epiphanies? Could it not be said that people who are of a lesser education level or intelligence quotient may be able to look at problems with a fresh set of eyes and provide a potential fix or building blocks towards a solution?
With that in mind I would like to welcome you to evaluate the performance of our world leaders. I’m not saying I would want an idiot in the White House or Parliament, but it would be nice to see somebody in an elite position of power who has more than a basic understanding of the struggles of the less fortunate.
If money provides education and education provides money, it is simple to see that there are powerful minds going to waste. The world and its many inhabitants are suffering many afflictions right now, i.e. global warming, economic crisis and disease. We need all the help we can get.
