Human Stupidity (Mural in the Medina of Marrakesh)

Marrakesh (Morocco).

Human Stupidity Has Limits

This is what this mural says. I found it one day I was walking and photographing around the Medina of Marrakesh, one of the most inspiring places I have ever seen in my life (and I visited it twice – quite unusual for me).

Photographing this nice example of street art, it came to my mind the popular quote commonly attributed to Albert Einstein:

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the universe.

It’s of course very ironic, but sometimes I think it’s not so distant from reality – especially when I watch the world and think about the way things are going on… Sorry for being a bit pessimist, but these are tough days – and I don’t think I need to explain why. However, I will try to use the sentence written on this wall to build a bit of confidence in the future: perhaps, even Albert Einstein had been wrong at least once in his life.
