I’ve never before contemplated this rhetorical device but think about it. Shouldn’t the wise already see any danger. Shouldn’t it actually be a word to the stupid? Unless, of course, the intent is to leave the stupid in the dark, hoping they are removed from the playing field, and maybe just try to save the borderline wise. Would Margaret Sanger and Adolf Hitler find my nod to eugenics something to cheer about? Regardless, I hope this argument puts me on the side of the wise.
