How do you react to mass stupidity?

Each of us had a moment when he/she looked back and said "Man, was I stupid doing that!". It's in the human nature to make mistakes and do something stupid now and then. It's also reasonable for some people to be brighter than others, for some to be genial and for some to be as dumb as a rock. But what happens when you feel surrounded by a sea of stupidity? When you see masses of people being driven into stupidity not for a brief time, but for years and years... How do you react when you see lots of people being utterly stupid? Does it make you feel good about yourself, by realizing that even if you're just an averagely bright person you are much wiser that so many others? Or does it make you feel sad and worry for the sake of the human species, risking to destroy itself by the shear stupidity of its members?
