Decades ago, a popular commercial slogan heard on radio and seen on television (no internet back then) was: "A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste." The point was that humans have minds which should be developed to their fullest capacity and not wasted. The ability to reason and think critically, benefits not only the individual but the rest of society as well.
Over 40 years later, the question that should be asked is whether or not we have let our minds go to waste. See this video to determine for yourself.
