Robert A Heinlen, a retired naval Commander, besides being one of the most famous science-fiction writers of the middle of the last century, had similar thoughts. He opined that stupidity earned its own capital punishment. He had a number of aphorisms, many of them in the Lazarus Long series about both group and individual stupidity and its consequences, left to themselves. Instead, as @scrapiron implies with his points about warning labels, all we have done is to keep nature and the universe from exacting immediate and appropriate consequences of rampant stupidity.

We’re fortunate in this country. Anyone can be born in a log cabin, or a condo in Hawaii, and grow up to become an idiot.

Now before I get hot and bothered emails from people saying things like “I take offense to your language. My son’s an idiot. How do you think this makes me feel?” or this one from “MO”: “I married an idiot. And we struggle every day because his disability,” please understand that I don’t discriminate against idiots.

No, not at all; I have voted for plenty of them.       

Because we are also a tad...
