following the logic of the article it is a matter of selfperception as being smart or not. When smart people have to have a "higher" moral standard than the average, then is "being smart" obviously a draw-back!
So the more stupid you are (for the purpose of this matter) the more you will get away with a fun and "enviable" living.
We should not forget that to question other people's moral it always needs a certain amount of envy!
