The age of morons upon us

27 January 2013, 19:18
The age of morons is upon us and in its wake it is threatening to destroy the foundations of civilisation and enlightenment.

The age of morons is threatening to engulf intellectualism, ethics and morals.

It is an age where human life and value is measured in terms of rands and cents.

It is an age where self serving morons ascend to the highest positions of power in the land.

It is an age where people cannot think beyond what they have been taught at home and at school since they were babies.

It is an age where people cannot philosophise and have no sense of history and no appreciation of poetry.

It is an age where idiots are celebrated and intellectuals are despised.

It is an age where intellectual conversations have been replaced with senseless conversations.

The age of morons is upon us.

It is an age where unqualified idiots ascend into management and leadership positions in government and the private sector.

It is an age where mucus-sucking idiots get tenders because they are politically connected.

It is an age where evil, self-centred and greedy men are voted into powerful positions.

It is an age where thieves are celebrated and where fake leaders are respected.

It is an age where crass materialism and narrowmindedness reign supreme.

The age of morons is upon us.

It is an age where idiots think because they are born from rich families therefore they are intelligent.

It is an age where idiotic parents unfairly compare their children with others.

It is an age where people think the meaning of the word equality means that we can all become doctors and lawyers.

It is an age where people cannot come up with original ideas, but are just copying other people's ideas and claim them as their own.

The age of morons is upon us.

It is an age where idiots think that the world began when they were born.

It is an age where people have selective and convenient memories, where they only remember the bad things that have been done to them and forget the good things others have done for them.

It is an age where people think the world owes them something because something bad happened in their lives.

It is an age where so-called entrepreneurs demand charity from the state and society, and when they get rich through charity they claim that they are intelligent hard workers, the bloody idiots!

The age of morons is upon us.

It is an age where people do not have their original plans but are doing what everyone else doing.

It is an age where people do not know who they are, why are they here and where they are going.

It is an age where sex crazed monsters run rampage and leave fatherless children in their wake.

It is an age where people think because they were born in the same year as others therefore they should think alike, act alike and do things together, the bloody idiots!

The age of morons is upon us.
