Stupidity by Albert Nerenberg Features Bill Maher, Noam Chomsky, George W. Bush, Mark Crispin Miller and many others. It’s a humorous examination of stupidity in contemporary American culture, covering: the effects of television and mass media on the American intellect; the “dumbing down” of American culture; the popularity of Steve-O and Jackass; role of religion in willful stupidity; the identification of many Americans with George W. Bush; the evolution of such concepts as “idiot” and “moron.”
The DVD edition contains extra interviews commentaries and readings. The film is not connected to Matthijs van Boxsel’s book called Encyclopaedia of Stupidity — also 2003- but recommended. Notes written September 17th, 2007
Note: a 30 second delay appears before the video. The film has been checked for completeness. It’s 70 minutes long but well worth watching.
