      believing info wars will lower your iq.

      Now it could appear as if we are getting dumber as the inbred idiots are having more babies so it lowers the average iq.

        You are right, I also blame the population explosion of the third-world and their immigrants for skewing the numbers.
        The average IQ of your North American White Male has been holding steady in the 103-105 range for the last 30-years.

    How can I say this without sounding completely nuts? 😉

    Though I resent being lectured to by an over-enunciating British robot, he’s right. I think he’s confusing IQ and education, but the bottom line is that people are indeed stupider, probably due to a combination of schooling and television. The last minute or so of that clip was an accurate assessment of modern pop culture.

    P.S.- One would think Alex Jones would welcome a drop in IQ, though.

      And don’t forget “smart” phones which are replacing brain cells as we speak.

      I totally agree with you about television because the learning experience through a visual medium like television is different than that of print. That’s why reading Mcluhan is so fascinating. He goes into all this stuff.

    Why shoot the messenger? I’m sure if you think about it for even half a second, you can come up with examples in your own personal experience.

    For example. and the one I use most often, is how diluted the educational experience has become. When, as a senior, I started auditing courses at a major university, I was struck how little the undergrads knew and I realized that my highschool diploma of a zillion years ago was worth far more than the expensive (and useless) arts degree they were going through the motions to attain.

      Why not shoot the messenger? What difference, at this point, does it make?

    A safer, civilized society means there is less opportunity for nature to cull the dumb units, but one does see occasional examples of people wanting to play with the pretty tiger in the zoo etc. with disastrous results.

    Of course, it doesn’t help to immigrate millions from lower IQ countries.

    In olden days the moronic masses were completely illiterate, and the written word (and thus recorded history) was reserved for the cream of the brain crop. Today, even the moronic masses (at least here in the Western World) are semiliterate, and they have endless forums on social media & elsewhere to show the whole world how moronic they are.

      Sadly though, the average 14 year old has lost about 30% of their vocabulary because they only associate with their peers and no longer talk to adults.

    Phones and cars are getting ‘smart’, while people are getting dumber.

    Yep , in the 1970’s the Liberals thought that if we opened out doors to anyone to come in they would be just like us and nothing would change because THEY would adapt to us and not import their culture and crimes .
