Criminally stupid

The term I used to describe that small percentage of human beings that act with a deliberate consciousness in a manner which is counter-productive to a successful socialized structure and outcome.

Normal Stupidity on the other hand is the standard default setting for the DNA of the humans species.

Abnormalities such as expressed higher intelligence are observed however as the exception and do so as a consequence of either abnormal DNA construction or as an undesirable consequence of the procreation process, or from the operational functions of the brain's neuron system by over stimulation as a consequence of experiential behavior.

In any event higher intellect functions are not the standard default setting for human beings and stupidity will continue to be the prime operant for the vast majority of human organism.

   
 

Democracy

Origin:
1525–35; < Middle French démocratie < Late Latin dēmocratia < Greek dēmokratía popular government, equivalent to dēmo- demo- + -kratia -cracy

Is used in this web site in the context of a process whereby the community has a role in determining the system that has varying influences over the way they live their daily lives.

Even though there are a popular number of clichés spoken about democracy such as equality, liberty and freedom, no democratic system so far developed by the human species would meet the criteria demanded by the common derivation of any of these terms.

Love
Origin:
before 900; (noun) Middle English; Old English lufu, cognate with Old Frisian luve, Old High German luba, Gothic lubō; (v.) Middle English lov ( i ) en, Old English lufian; cognate with Old Frisian luvia, Old High German lubōn to love, Latin lubēre (later libēre ) to be pleasing; akin to lief

Today however Love is term for a powerful positive emotion.

We use it as a measure of the intensity of that emotion, in the same way we ascribed the term 'like' to represent a smaller or moderate amount of that feeling.

In the prudish days of European culture the word was the ascribed prefered term for the practice of 'sexual activity'. Probably because for the major religions of the world that dominated European populations (Islam and Christianity) 'sex' was a particularly dangerous moral activity with enormous potential to dam one's soul.

So powerful was this position, that the avoidance of the term 'sex' was considered necessary probably becuase just as to speak the word could summons the power of evil in to your immediate atmosphere.
