Short answer? No.
End of short answer.
Long answer: At some point in life nearly everyone realizes that humans tend to over glorify things that are symbols of things that can't often be given at large and at will to justify their qualifications.
In other words...if lots of folks go round saying "that big mouth opinionated WTS fella...besides being nuts, he's SMART!"
Well...great, just great. Now folks are going to expect "smart" out of me - and if they have too high an expectation...they'll certainly be disappointed.
Right now I've got two people in mind that I know well...generally speaking, these two guys are the two most intelligent persons that I come into contact with here in my hometown. One of them is an uncle of mine who never finished college, and stopped doing the "working for a living" thing a long long time ago. The world actually owes that guy around twenty times his social security income just for the value that he provides to the collective consciousness.
Lots of folks are dragging down our US average IQ...my uncle Tom ain't one of those...he's making the curve look less shameful.
Another guy is a close personal friend of mine...he's a convicted felon, and because corporate amoral America never ever forgives anyone but the most wealthy of all...that don't need a job, my friend has to rough it and hustle up some income any and every way that he can. Luckily for him...the guy is pretty damn brilliant, and quickly figures out anything that he's interested in knowing.
As for myself....I'd love to learn more, and the way that I can't afford to do that is by going to a university.
I don't talk to philosophers much...but when I do, I ask for large fries.
