CBC premieres documentary 'Stupidity', Sept. 5th

This program seems rather appropriate to concerns about the nuclear threat.... Worthwhile to check it out.

STUPIDITY


Stupidity is Albert Nerenberg's hard-hitting and often hilarious look at stupidity as a driving force in society. The documentary is a controversial investigation into what may be a characteristic unique to our species-a chronic resistance to intelligence. Stupidity sets out to determine whether our culture is hooked on deliberate ignorance as a strategy for success. From Adam Sandler *to George W. Bush*, from the IQ test to TV programming and the origins of the word 'moron', Nerenberg examines the "dumbing down" of contemporary culture.
