The joke is that the problems of the world are due to the fact that all the people who know how to run the world are driving taxis or cutting hair.

"The thief and the murderer follow nature just as much as the philanthropist. Cosmic evolution may teach us how the good and the evil tendencies of man may have come about; but, in itself, it is incompetent to furnish any better reason why what we call good is preferable to what we call evil than we had before."
