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.
