Suspending moral judgment is not the immorality of the novel; it is its morality. The morality that stands against the ineradicable human habit of judging instantly, ceaselessly, and everyone; of judging before, and in the absence of, understanding. From the viewpoint of the novel’s wisdom, that fervid readiness to judge is the most detestable stupidity, the most pernicious evil.Milan Kundera
stupidity is an attempt to iron out all differences, and not to use or value them creatively.bill mollison

...it is widely but wrongly believed that Beavis and Butt-Head celebrates its characters, and applauds their sublime lack of values, taste and intelligence. I've never thought so.

They are a target for his anger against the rising tide of stupidity.roger ebert
Since Pharaoh’s bits were pushed into the jaws of kings, these dyings patient or impatient, but dyings have happened, by the hundreds of millions; they were all wasted.

It is a bad thing to perform menial duties even for the sake of freedom; to fight with pinpricks, instead of with clubs. I have become tired of hypocrisy, stupidity, gross arbitrariness, and of our bowing and scraping, dodging, and hair-splitting over words. Consequently, the government has given me back my freedom.karl marx
A little folly is desirable in him that will not be guilty of stupidity.Michel de Montaigne

Nobody has ever thought himself to death. The chief danger confronting us is not age. It is laziness, sloth, routine, stupidity, forcing their way in like wind through the shutters, seeping into the cellar like swamp water.
The whole dream of democracy is to raise the proletarian to the level of bourgeois stupidity.
stupidity is much the same all the world over. A stupid person's notions and feelings may confidently be inferred from those which prevail in the circle by which the person is surrounded. Not so with those whose opinions and feelings are an emanation from their own nature and faculties.john stuart mill
