Ummm. No. Sure, from the other side it is easy to just call it stupidity. But, this is sociology. We have become the dominant animal on the planet not only by individual thoughts and actions but by being a social animals and having leaders that have led us to do some great things. We have also had leaders that have lead us astray by exploiting those same social tendencies in our history. Just calling it "stupid" is too simplistic and unhelpful.
