  Intelligent people can be far more stupid than unintelligent people,
  because the latter do not have the intellectual capacity of the former to
  create a "better" world of their own in which they can pretend to liv,
  and get away with it.  Intelligence is merely higher ablity, stupidity is
  the lack of skill in using whatever abilities you have.

  In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
