The dumbing of America?

Anyone who's seen the movie 'Idiocracy' knows what I'm talking about, the general shallow end of the gene pool from which each consecutive generation is being spawned in. The movie I referenced is a comedy, IMHO a pretty good one – but it proceeds from the idea that people who are successful and wealthy don't have time to make kids or the desire, and another group is just plain intelligent enough to see which way the world is going, and don't want to bring kids into it to inherit the coming mess. And the result is a population which by the time in which the movie is set, are all morons! I tend to agree, even in my lifespan I see people leaving high school as "adults" with a mentality or mindset like what I and my contemporaries had in the 6th grade.,, and it often doesn't get much better with their age! LOL So what do you think – are America, and the "civilized nations" in general, becoming stupider?

You know, I haven't read much on this. But I have a really low opinion of the mentality evidenced by the vast sea of droning shit designed to appeal in the mainstream. And I see these people in high-school, then in college...

At least most of the people I'm talking about really are intelligent. And I did see them mature. But at the same time, it's almost as if they are becoming mature, independent, parenting, working children.

There's some interesting stuff to read about parenthood in America that is relevant. But I at least believe that many of us are spoiled dumb. Or maybe that's much more only Beverly Hills...(it's sickening over here)

Also, I don't feel like intelligence and knowledge aren't valued enough in the first place by younger people, and in some cases, the rejection of them is glorified.

You got part of it right!

The past two centuries when the peoples of the world were gradually winning their political freedom from the dynastic monarchies, the major banking families of Europe and America were actually reversing the trend by setting up new dynasties of political control through the formation of international financial combines. These banking dynasties had learned that all governments must have sources of revenue from which to borrow in times of emergency. They had also learned that by providing such funds from their own private resources, they could make both kings and democratic leaders tremendously subservient to their will."
Carroll Quigley in his book "Tragedy and Hope"
