Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
If IQ exists (which SJWs debate but serious researchers do not), then the Theory of Evolution through Survival of the Fittest would suggest that average IQ was higher in the past. It must have been – only the people clever enough to survive, lived long enough to reproduce.
Nowadays, with endless help groups and support networks and government programs, people who would have starved to death in the past are now surviving and breeding, as are their children. The inevitable result must be a general lowering of IQ. It’s not your imagination – people really are getting dumber every year.
Imagine that a new Black Death or Spanish Flu kills off 70% of the world’s population. Would the survivors be smart enough to rebuild? Or would our civilization disappear, to be discovered centuries from now as stone ruins deep in some jungle where St. Paul used to be?
In a semi-related matter, I’ve had a piece in my “drafts” folder for a few months now about how The Walking Dead is the most conservative thing Hollywood has produced in a generation.
I may have to finish it.
