Sometimes I think about other people who are considered stupid. Given derogatory names by society in general, is it justifiable?
My personal philosophy in life is simple when it comes to levels of intelligence. It is based on the fact that I am not as intelligent as I want to be. I may know things that other people do not know, or I can do certain feats better than others. Still, I feel the inadequacy for having lesser knowledge. That’s why I continue to explore and study.
Often, we can be mean to somebody who we feel not up to our standard of comprehension. Before, I was guilty of such cruel behavior. (Well, that was up to that moment I heard the word uttered to me directly. It was painfully clear that the word hurts.)
Will it be fairer to say to someone that, “I know something you don’t know but you also know something I don’t know.”
There will always be people who are more endowed with intellect than others. But that should not be a reason to put someone down who are not in the same league.
