Intelligence is the ability of all humans to interact amongst themselves, worldwide, socially, using language and meaning, without creating the conditions necessary for war anywhere.
I would also like to add into this mix of wonderful human abilities, under the heading Intelligent actions, the ability for human society to exist without creating poverty, starvation, homelessness, and an incredible lack of health care for a majority of its peoples!
Ignorance is the ability of all humans to interact amongst themselves, worldwide, socially, using language and meaning, (to create a system in full view of all of the world's population if the media doesn't lie to them) that displays all of the wonderful traits that our present elected governments see as important.
1. poverty...keep them poor!
2.information...give them incorrect or incomplete info whenever possible. Lie,lie,lie!
3.wealth...obtain it and hoard it, but do not spread it around.
4.If they are homeless and starving they can not really raise themselves up by their bootstraps, so we can call them no-good criminals, they cannot protect or represent themselves legally, so we can use our minions of the law to harass them into submission.
