Re: idiot

The simplest explanation is that most criminals are pretty dumb.

Which actually makes sense, thinking about it. Genuinely smart people tend to both find satisfaction in the work they do and attract large salaries, rather than resorting to crass material accumulation and theft.

And for people without much brains but an insatiable desire for power and material wealth, there's always politics as a legal way to that end...
