My my. A simple satire has been attacked and so many have taken offense. Though the profanity didn't help the arguments assembled here.
Correct me (as in don't jump down my throat) if I have become confused, but would you say that this piece was written in response to the belief that the youth of today are educated in such a way that they don't every truly make the connection of knowledge and real life? "Real worlds" were mentioned earlier, and it is debatable over the actual existence of a single "world" as correct, for every person is different and thus holds a different norm for their views.
There is no such thing as stupid. There is only ignorance. Stupidity as the public knows it is not real. Contentment and ignorance are the true crimes of the foolish. The world of today (or should it be worlds?) is based on money, power, and prestige. One could gain these through family, education (cringe at the word if you must), or money. Ruthlessness doesn't usually harm one in the world, but as the old saying goes "You attract more flies with honey than vinegar."
It must also be remembered that there is a severe difference between intelligent and smart. You're smart if you can regurgitate information. You're intelligent when you are able to apply that information into everyday use.
In summary, certain media forced beliefs and forms of education are harmful to the budding minds of youth, while others only help those minds to grow beyond the gardeners wildest dreams.
Please refrain from any hostility, as none was included here. Only an opinion with facts woven in is present here.
As in, don't look for a fight here. You might just get one.
Good day.

@farmerman,
Good. Saves me the trouble of separating the E&E from the M&M, and the W&W.

@farmerman,
Know what? My peanut m&ms only have one M, or one E, or one W.

@roger,
They are from a whole nother division of the Mars Company. They have their own candy proofreaders. Its called the "Proofreading & Punctuation Dept,

That is the same division that produces those dirty little valentine wishes they have on their mini hearts candies
