That's the crux of the matter really. Ignorance can easily be circumstantial, and lack of intelligence is largely down to the genetic lottery, but true stupidity is a deliberate lifestyle choice. Laziness of thought.

Of course, the mark of an intelligent man is that the wiser he becomes the more stupid he realises he is.

The stupid remain ignorant of the fact.
