This is misleading, everyone isn't getting stupider. The stupid people are just breeding more. We should just stop exporting our food.

How is it misleading? are you slow? more stupid people = average is lowered. when looking at this I didn't have the thought that people are getting stupider. that would be dumb.

The misleading part is having the entire world involved in the IQ graphic meanwhile only Africa and Europe were in the population graphic.

The average IQ is 100 by definition, so the average IQ won't change, but there may be changes in general cognitive ability. That's actually a hot subject in the IQ literature at the moment.

Literally the plot of Idiocracy

Smart people are still breeding, they are just doing it at a little over replacement level, they just aren't having 8 kids

That’s what happened in Idiocracy

[–] Eualos 1 points 1 points (+2|-1) ago 

No, in idiocracy no smart people were left, in reality smart people will exist and the rulers of the masses of retards.

Not misleading, the world is getting nigged, and the Jews are leading it there.

[–] Eualos 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Yeah, but whites and east Asians aren't getting stupider, the nigs, sandnogs, and taco nigs are dragging it down.

This is a short-term effect.

In the long-term, the optimal reproductive strategy is to have as many kids as you can support. In a capitalist society, where intelligence is in demand, the intelligent will be able to support more kids than the unintelligent. The problem is that the majority of intelligent people are currently employing a suboptimal reproductive strategy by intentionally limiting the number of children they have (via birth control). But evolution will catch up, and people will evolve to be averse to birth control.

Historically, the limiting factor on the evolution of intelligence was the increased nutritional demands. Invest more in the brain, consume more energy, need more calories to survive. In a post-scarcity society where food is cheap compared to income, like in Western society, no one is starving to death. So the limiting factor on the evolution of intelligence is all but gone; high IQ in men is associated with reproductive success.

And really, on a global level, societies compete with one another. If some societies foster evolution of higher IQ individuals, and others devolve into idiocracy, the high-IQ societies will out-compete the low IQ societies.

This wouldn't be happening if we didn't force the best to subsidize the worst. We are paying for this. Voluntarily or not.

Its already happening.

Idiocracy aint no science fiction...

"Idiocracy aint no," fucking wow.

That IQ graph looks highly suspicious IMO.

[–] InyourfaceNancyGrace 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Given that, by definition, average IQ is 100, the trend on the IQ chart will self-normalize. The world will be dumber, but the IQ numbers shouldn't change.

Hand rubbing intensifies. People who are just smart enough to work and run the machines but too dumb to ask questions OH THE HOLOCAUST boo hoo go to the museum

The most pessimistic explanation as to why humans seem to be becoming less intelligent is that we have effectively reached our intellectual peak. Between the 1930s and 1980s, the average IQ score in the US rose by three points and in post-war Japan and Denmark, test scores also increased significantly – a trend known as the ‘Flynn effect’. Now some experts believe we are starting to see the end of the Flynn effect in developed countries – and that IQ scores are not just levelling out, but declining.

Nah, the "IQ Index" will get adjusted for deflation, therefore it will stay at 100 forever.
