Note: a 30 second delay appears before the video. The film has been checked for completeness.

Stupidity by Albert Nerenberg Features Bill Mahe
r, Noam Chomsky, George W. Bush, Mark Crispin Miller and many others. 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 identifaction 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.

Buy the high-quality DVD of this

Stupidity was a real breakthrough for it's time.

I would just like to point out that this movie was dumbed down to fit it's audiance. It feature a lot of quick short clip on other people being idoits and is meant to make the viewer feel like they are smarter then the people depicted in the movie. Rather then a carful invistegation in to the trend of proud igornace and it's impact on public policy and everyday life. Just because you make a doc of stupility does not make the content any less dumb.
