Working title: Don't be a Dummy

What will the article cover? What will it be about? The moral responsibility an individual has in a democratic society to be as intelligent as that individual can make him- or herself.

What stance will you take? p 32, and again on p 82: To amuse, and to make the reader more aware.

Consider audience fit: adult readers, college age and up, with some degree of social and moral conscience.

Consider how the article will make contact with readers - chap 3, and chap 4, p 80 - 81: Through humorous text and links to humorous videos and images. The writing will be kept is tight as possible, with a heavy use of targeted lists.

Where might the article fit on TIO: section and category, either existing or one that will collect others: Real Life | Self-improvement

Research and practices you'll need to do to write the article. 1) a careful analysis of the detrimental effects of stupidity in our society, 2) the telltale signs of stupidity, and 3) how stupidity can be avoided.

What it might link to - literally and figuratively: I'd like to structure the article along the lines of Mark Bernstein's "Hypertext Gardens" in order to make the piece less linear and more integrated. Structured like that, it would have a central page located on Joomla that would like to wiki pages I would then create which link to each other and back to the central page, as well as to outside links. There's lots of humorous videos on the internet that would play very well in an article like this. If I can keep the tone light, partly through linking to these videos, the rather harsh message will be softened.
