That is a post hoc ergo propter hoc - fails.

That's a stupid argument.

Something can be stupid, work, and still be stupid.

For example, I can walk to and from work every day instead of taking the bus, train, car etc. It'd take about 5 hours to get there, and 5 hours to get home.

It works, but that doesn't change the fact that it's stupid.

^ You are talking about the utility of going from A to B. That is simple.

The OP said '"If it's stupid but works, it isn't stupid." Now that's stupid!'

That is a statement about systems intelligence. It broadly assumes that the result from the systems agents is not profitable given the input effort\resource. There is an output from the system that to some extent meets requirements but the existing ways and means to achieve has been identified as wasteful. This as i said is a 'post hoc ergo propter hoc' - "after this, therefore because of this, (fails).

A holistic perspective on life the universe and everything is to acknowledge that 'everything has its purpose' which is less of a self centered view of things and more of an outwards existential vista of how we got to a certain place at a certain time and how did others too in relation to ourselves be they positive, benign or negative.
However humans are not primarily driven by sweet sounding conceptual aesthetics. As Stalin once said of the Pope 'But where are your legions?'. That is having the capability of mobilizing a group of people to achieve a singular aim. And within the many 'legions' of life - work, social, political there is schismogenesis - 'creation of division'. Which is systems of holding back.

Groundbreaking 'leaders' can identify explosive possibilities of co-operation.

A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act.

Structurally, both conditional statements must be in the same state.

Subjectively, both statements are stupid.
