You don't have to travel to outer space to find morons. They gather all around like drops of water and they seek their own level in various forms of low level playing fields.
To the extent that you disassociate from bottom feeders and remove them from your visual field and your interactive social dynamic, you empower your own intelligence.
“Intellect is invisible to the man who has none” - Arthur Schopenhauer
addendum: Sadly, I had to once again reduce the parameters of my socialization group. I need to stay in my demographic, cannot suffer fools. It insults my own intelligence.
