If you could create a painless, inexpensive cure for a single ailment, what would you cure and why?

I would cure stupidity. My first answer would have been cancer but there are far more people suffering from stupidity. I call this an ailment as it is a persistent weakness of the mind which consumes the whole body and not only affects that person but others around him/her as well.

It is this rashness or thoughtlessness that leads a person to hurt another human being with actions and words. It is this lack of intelligence that leads one to believe the conspiracy theories floating around instead of seeing the stark truth. It is this weakness that is exploited by others to make people into puppets doing whatever right or wrong they are asked to do. It is this affliction that makes one sell his/her soul to the devil.

Doctors may find the cure for cancer very soon but I’m pretty sure the cure for stupidity is not around the corner.
