With a bad man, redemption is possible. With a stupid man, nothing avails. Here, though, is where it gets interesting. Clarity and charity have the same agency. Thus, the man who knows he’s stupid is not stupid.
Stupidity is not necessarily a lack of intelligence. Some of the stupidest men in the world are savvy, rich, well educated. Stupid is the man who does not know himself, who does the right thing for the wrong reasons.
