The Dunning?Kruger effect, and it explains a lot……

The definition of the Dunning-Kruger effect, aken from Wikipedia:

...is a cognitive bias in which "people reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices but their incompetence robs them of the metacognitive ability to realize it"...

Which can be summarised as:

The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.

This explains a lot, don't you think?
