Among Smug Fools
They are amazed by grown men throwing balls, just as they revere moving cartoon characters around the screen, and then loudly advocate political solutions that aggressively lower the quality of humanity. Next they'll tell you what music is good, also which authors, and other judgments far beyond their ability to discern. Fools everywhere assert errors in judgment, knowledge and taste, while feeling highly confident about their spurious claims. They'll try to socially compel you to capitulate and agree, insisting that you treat their ignorance as equal to wisdom.
Every thirty years a new race comes into the world -- youngster that knows nothing about anything, and after summarily devouring in all haste the results of human knowledge as they have been accumulated for thousands of years, aspires to be thought cleverer than the whole of the past. For this purpose he goes to the University, and takes to reading books -- new books, as being of his own age and standing. Everything he reads must be briefly put, must be new! he is new himself. Then he falls to and criticizes. And here I am not taking the slightest account of studies pursued for the sole object of making a living.
When you are speaking to someone with simple responsibilities, such as collecting money for a cash register, consolidating garbage from bins, or reading scam scripts over a phone, remember they will likely possess only average ability to complete their assigned task, though professional taxi drivers are generally inferior to amateur drivers.
The person you encounter on your economic exchange is likely a total disaster at everything other than performing the tasks of their profession. They have no original ideas, curiosity, or aspirations. They aren't familiar with the issues of the world, culture, or previous great accomplishments. They are dullard consumers of trendy products who fake sentience by expressing their programming.
You should immediately disregard everything they say about modern events, art, weather, or ball throwing contests. You're talking to a zombie and taking the exchange seriously.
Since they are in front of you for a transaction, you should also disregard their transactional advice, as they are representatives of money grabbers trained to obediently extract the maximum possible from you.
Remember, though the person has managed to put on clothing and learn the syntax of the local language well enough to vocalize words with some semblance of meaning, you are likely listening to the babble of a crazy degenerate fool who is misleading you because they don't know any better. Complete your exchange and move on.
