Stupidity can lead to perfidy

There is a time when thoughtful people have to acknowledge that the comfortable assumptions they have been making about how other people are acting must be reexamined.

Now is such a time.


I have worked in government, and have seen first-hand how job insecurity drives people to accept mediocrity and then stupidity. I have witnessed with astonishment how stupidity ends up making people do exactly the opposite of what they were hired to do, what they say they are doing, and what they really want to be doing.


Ultimately, stupidity can lead to perfidy. That is a simple lesson of history. The impulse to "go along to get along" ends up invisibly transitioning people beyond the point where they can legitimately defend the Devil's bargain they are making to protect their personal job security.


Take the influence of Islamic radicals on various organs of our government today. It all starts with petro-dollars, of course, but the corrupting influence of such vast wealth is broad and deep in our society. Now, it has infected the very organs of our government charged with the responsibility to protect us from the barbarism of Sharia and the terrorist onslaught it promotes and finances.


The mini-movie referred to below isn't even the tip of the iceberg, but it points in the direction of the problem. While watching it, it is important to remember that most (although not all) of the government workers who have succumbed to the influence of Islamic political correctness are decent people who just want to be safe in their jobs. They are government workers who took an oath to protect America but who, in order to protect their jobs, have moved into a state of psychological denial about the Devil's bargain they have made with America's enemies.


It serves no useful purpose to demonize them, but it is essential that they be educated. Most people want to do good things, but they need encouragement (it is called "herd psychology"). The American people need to encourage our government employees to shed the blinders of political correctness so that they can see where their duty lies.
