"Blessed are the foolish; they shall be happy!" Naguib Mahfouz

Which single long sentence can describe the main thought with which I'm obsessed these days, i.e., that the world is perishing because of foolishness of many, while those whom I consider wise are getting ready to drink from the River of Foolishness* to be able to survive; isn't adaptation -not struggle- the only way to survive according to the evolved Evloution Theory?

* Refering to a short story by Gibran K.Gibran
p.s. This sentence was difficult to translate since Arabic punctuation can make such long sentences more readable.

- A translation of طوبى للحمقى فإنّهم سعداء- نجيب محفوظ
