Incorrigibly dangerous


Intelligence without imagination is dangerous. An unbearable and impenetrable arrogance will possess the afflicted individual. These people believe their assessment of reality to be beyond reproach and will look condescendingly at those proposing imaginative alternatives to their flawless arguments.

Moreover, unimaginative intellectuals can justify the most terrible atrocities and implement the most heartless ideas. They have such a solid understanding of the status quo that they fail to discern paradigm shifts or recognise the innovators behind them. If they did cast their eyes back, they would see individuals who bear an uncanny resemblance to the fools they deride today.

Let’s hope we do away with as many of these incorrigible folks as possible. They are portents of a dark future.
