STUPIDITY sets out to determine whether our culture is hooked on deliberate ignorance as a strategy for success. From Adam Sandler to George W. Bush, from the IQ test and TV programming to the origins of the word moron, this documentary examines the "dumbing down" of contemporary culture. Featuring opinions and comments from cultural figures, authors and academics including John Cleese, Noam Chomsky, Salma Hayek, and Bill Maher, STUPIDITY reveals that despite our culture's extensive access to knowledge and information, humans continue to choose stupidity.
