Isaiah 29:14

Therefore once more I will astound these people with wonder upon wonder; the wisdom of the wise will perish, the intelligence of the intelligent will vanish.”

What is “intellect” anymore?

 

It used to be that intellect meant you had the cranial wherewithal to infer, deduce & extrapolate data; to relish the real labor of thinking…do a bit more than drool, nod your head and agree with your ‘buds who follow the road most traveled simply because they don’t have the balls (or the brain power) to use the module known as…’common sense’ and manage to mutter (ever so softly) that it appears that the once lauded, popular & illustrious emperor has..uhm, no clothes.

 

Today, “intellect” often references a modern day coward, one who cannot fathom the exercise of thinking for themselves; someone who latches onto “consensus-thinking”, “majority opinion” and the comfort that comes from existing in a sandbox in which the rules have already been agreed to, and the artificial plywood sky has been painted a nice light-blue (*sigh*).

 

So what are we left with? Evolution, Big-Bang, Climate Change, Alternate lifestyles…and the utter myth that Barack Obama has a shred of brains in his Marxist skull with which to successfully govern a capitalist, center-right culture.

 

“Intellect” then, has devolved into a collective consortium of perverted thought-processes; a cadre of thumb-sucking pin-heads who point to the sky and scream “Mama, it’s falling” when all that’s happened is that an ill-timed acorn has dropped from a branch on high and, by their interpretation providentially, has struck them upon their underdeveloped, egg-shaped heads.

 

The Brothers Grimm, it would seem, have been out-done.
