Common sense is an oxymoron
How smart do you think you really are? If I asked you if you had common sense, how would you answer? Some of you might think that you’re pretty intelligent. I wouldn’t be surprised if there are even some of you who think that you have above average intelligence. If you ever thought this to yourself, then I’m going to prove to you that this is probably not accurate.

“Modern Capitalism is the art of creating a demand where no need exists.”
At some point in time in your life, you’ve given yourself to becoming exploited either by your emotional gullibility or your impetuous spontaneity. This has been made possible either by social or economic systems designed specifically to take advantage of the fact that you, like most of your friends, accept most of the things you see and believe for exactly what you perceive them to be the first time you see them.
Translation: You’re being exploited because you’re a dummy. If you answer yes to any of these, your stupid gene is alive and well. Rejoice:
