They all rest when they sleep and at other times when they relax.

Imbeciles are plenty when visiting the press.

Perhaps I take out of context this quotation,
but I do think it is necessary to think about people´s thoughts in this forum.

It is, however, relatively easy to mock and scold "the imbeciles"
when one does not see the hole from where stupidity crawls up.

It is ignorance, belief, fear, submission and superstition
what give birth to the imbeciles and the filth of the human race.

Just lets not mock the stupid children just for being stupid,
for when one man brings up a stupid child it is his responsibility and fault.

It has been man´s history since olden days up until now.
For how long will it keep on, no one truly knows.

I pulled this quote from TFD’s encyclopedia page about Dumas:

“In later plays Dumas preached a revolt against romantic morality, the excesses of the wealthy, bourgeois puritanism, and [he] propounded social and psychological questions."

Given the quote, I believe Dumas’s comment about preferring rogues over imbeciles could have been a cynical remark directed at somebody who was able to cast an illusion of being a powerful person during his time. Possibly an unqualified person with high political aspirations. If so, I’m amazed at how relevant the quote still is to the political climate of today.Angel

Mutant imbecilic rogues never perish, never rest, are never to be underestimated and dismissed as harmless.

It is sort of an elite attitude - The numbers of people who do and say stupid things is greater than the number of crooks and therefore bother him less. Stupidity never takes a rest.

I have done some stupid things in my life but I still wonder how some people live to be as old as they do. I know of a woman on a hot day and no air conditioning who stood in a pan of water to do her ironing! True story. I saw it myself.
