How can you use the word "stupid" with the article as a noun?


Wikipedia has the meaning (noun informal).

  • The clever will survive while the stupid are left to their fate! – Ronald Sole Feb 16 '19 at 0:33

The phrase "the {adjective}" can be used to refer to a collection of people (for instance) who all share that characteristic:

Only the brave will enter...

The meek shall inherit the earth...

Thus, stupid can be used as a noun to mean a group of people who are all stupid.
