One thing to know about Idiocracy is that it is, in part, based on a 1961 scifi short story 'The Marching Morons", by C. M. Kornbluth:

http://mysite.du.edu/~treddell/3780/Kornbluth_The-Marching-Morons.pdf

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Marching_Morons

The basic premise, and a few of the jokes are lifted directly from the novel, but an important element is omitted: there is a secret, super-intelegent elete cabal that runs the world from behind the scenes.

Kornbluth only wrote a few things, but is one of the ore influential dystopian writers ever.

Except it's already happening, not 500 years in the future.

Right now our problem is a society too comfortable to stand for what's right.

Money in politics is such a big issue because the voters are so stupid that spamming 30 second ads in swing states is enough to turn an election.

I watched that back in 2006 when I was 14 and found it funny, but IIRC it's mostly dildo jokes. Yes, there's a cultural critic which is pretty nice, but they pretty much make their point in the first 15 minutes and then it's dildos.

I find that's its a dumb movie, ironically. I mean the whole point is that smart people were out-bread by idiots and society turns to shit.

The solution? A pair of average intelligence people to breed the next smart generation. Massively outnumbered by the idiots, according to this movie, how did we ever fall into Idiocracy if a couple of smart people are enough? How would it not repeat?

The smart people stopped having kids. It's in the very beginning of the movie.

I was laughing really hard when the main character first goes to the future with all the gags about what the world is becoming, but the movie itself started to be less funny as it went on.

Most people don't even get it that the movie ridicules its watchers.
