The smart ones realize that this it isn't worth living in this country, and seek their fortune abroad. The truly smart ones realize that fortune doesn't matter, and try to make this country worth living in.

The wise ones realize that life is inherently meaningless and full of suffering, and proceed to live lives of emptiness. The truly wise ones realize that it doesn't matter, and proceed to create meaning out of life.
