Unfortunately there isn’t a way to leave comments there, so I shall comment here and hope that the author checks Technorati.
Stupid, stupid, stupid.
Smart people build systems that generate income 24/7, especially passive income. This can include starting a business, building a web site, becoming an investor, or generating royalty income from creative work.
Which makes Doctors ‘not smart’, which makes Airline pilots ‘not smart’, which makes anyone who does physical work ‘not smart’. It makes *me* ‘not smart’.
If you start your own business then you are employing people who you consider to be ‘not smart’. Hardly a way to build employee relations, and if everyone follows these rules then there will be no-one to employ.
I see people who make money off the backs of others every day (I do a fair number of jobs in Docklands), they need ambulances just the same as everyone else. It’s a dream that everyone becomes creative geniuses investing in other people – but without actual *workers* there is nothing to invest in.
I’d like to see this idiot tell the person who empties his bins that they are ‘dumb’, or even better the policeman who stops him for speeding.
We can’t all live on designing web sites or making ‘inspirational’ announcements.
Some of us do physical work. The difference is that some of us enjoy it or get worth from it.
I think that makes us ‘dumb’.
(I have no idea why I found myself getting angry after reading this. Perhaps a subject for self examination).
