Subject: RE: BS: How low can you go?
Exactly my thoughts, Wolfgang. I hate to stir up the nasty past, but Heinrich Himmler was pretty bright. So was Josef Stalin. So was Pol Pot.
On the other hand, I've known lots of people who weren't at the top of the ladder intellectually, but who were good, solid, ethical folks.
Intelligence is no indicator at all of either morality or ethical behavior.
