More Important: Intelligence or Common Sense?

Asking too much of today’s mortals, for sure.

To me, it is basic common sense that is lacking widely across the board. People have been so distracted by their phones and computers, they no longer have the common sense that used to go with coming of age or learning from experience. Intelligence is sadly lacking, too, today, but common sense is more basic and it seems to be a forgotten, unused faculty.

Put it this way, with common sense, one has a much better chance of fewer conflicts, danger, and significant mistakes leading to harm, injury, destruction or death.

Predictably also, heavy phone- or computer-users will also lack common sense and often not be too smart, self-reliant, autonomous, and mature in the old-fashioned sense.
