NOT SO FINDABLE AND RATHER SCARY IN ITS FASCIST FORMULATION IS WALTER B. PITKIN'S
A SHORT INTRODUCTION TO THE HISTORY OF HUMAN STUPIDITY
SIMON AND SCHUSTER 1932
"There are, in the world today, at the most conservative estimate, at least 20,000,000 men,women and children among the English speaking peoples alone whose intelligence surpasses that of the other 170,000,000."
"Inferior minds overrate themselves more than superior do. Dull boys aspire to the white house, while boys too competent to serve as President of the US are either to clever to be trapped in such a fatal misadventure or else too modest to take such a career seriously."
ANOTHER BARNES AND FUCKING NOBLE BOOK IS
THE NATURAL HISTORY OF STUPIDITY
BY PAUL TABORI 1993
A MORE SATIRICAL TREATMENT OF THE SUBJECT.
AND THEN THERE IS CARLO M. CIPOLLA'S ODD LITTLE PAMPHLET
THE BASIC LAWS OF HUMAN STUPIDITY
THE MAD MILLERS,BOLOGNA ITALY
"The first basic law of human stupidity asserts without ambiguity that..
always and inevitably everyone underestimates the number of stupid individuals in circulation.
The second law...The probability that a certain person be stupid is independent of any other characteristic of that person.
This idea was hard to accept and digest but too many experimental results proved its fundamental veracity. The Second Basic Law is an iron law, and it does not admit exceptions. The Women's Liberation Movement will support the second law as it shows that stupid individuals are proportionally as numerous among men as among women. The underdeveloped of the Third World will probably take solace in the second law as they can find in it the proof that after all the developed are not so developed Whether the second law is liked or not, however, its implications are frightening: the law implies that whether you move in distinguished circles or you take refuge among the head-hunters of Polynesia, whether you lock yourself into a monastery or decide to spend the rest of your life in the company of beautiful and lascivious women, you always have to face the same percentage of stupid people-which percentage (in accordance with the first law) will always surpass your expectations.
The third law...A stupid person is a person who causes losses to another person or to a group of persons while himself deriving no gain and even possibly incurring losses.
The fourth law...Non-stupid people always underestimate the damaging power of stupid individuals. In particular non-stupid people constantly forget that at all times and places and under any circumstances to deal and/or associate with stupid people infallibly turns out to be a costly mistake."
IT EVEN HAS GRAPHS TO HELP YOU EVALUATE YOUR FELLOW HUMANS.
