It seems that it is just as difficult to regulate stupidity as it is to
legislate morality. Didn't Franklin or Jefferson have a saying about
how uncommon 'common sense' was?
Well, I couldn't find anything that quite matches the quote that
you're searching for, but here are some possible substitutes:
"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety
deserve neither liberty nor safety."
- Benjamin Franklin
Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759
"The two most common things in the universe are hydrogen and stupidity."
- Harlan Ellison
