I know this may sound a bit crazy, but I am tired of so many idiots. If you guys have anymore things to add or if you want to make an adjustment just reply to this post.



1) Intelligence is not entirely genetic, dumb people can have smart kids and smart people can have dumb kids. It's impossible to "breed the stupid out" because it is impossible for everyone in the world to have the same level of intelligence, so there will always be people who are considered stupid when compared to those who are more intelligent than them. Even if this selective breeding somehow led to the average person being as smart as Einstein, there would be people in the world who would be 100x smarter than he was, so the average Einstein folks would be the idiots of their time.

2) Even average people today are capable of being informed voters, it's just that they are unwilling to be because they don't take time to learn about the issues and the candidates. It would be more reasonable to have people take tests to measure how well they understand the issues before they were allowed to vote.

3) Who cares what other countries think? As long as you know (or think you know) that you're not one of the stupid Americans that they are making fun of, then it shouldn't matter what they say. There are negative stereotypes about every country, and if you don't match those stereotypes then they shouldn't bother you.


I don't get how people don't understand that people today are far more educated than people have been in the past, at least in industrialized nationst. Doesn't mean we're all smart, but a special ed kids in today's world is better educated and more literate than an average person from the 1800s. The reason why Americans seem to be getting dumber is because we've been the strongest world power for so long that we've gotten lazy and complacent, while other nations have become more competitive in order to catch up and surpass us. It's part of the life cycle of a powerful civilization: we've passed our prime and are currently declining, and eventually another nation will become #1 and start the cycle again.

People have the misconception that 100+ years ago, every person in the world was intelligent and skilled because we only ever learn about the historical figures who had intellect and talent. For every Einstein there are a million dumbasses, it always has been that way and it always will be that way. If you don't like it, then get into an Ivy League school. Just know that even though you're annoyed by all the dumb people around you, there's people in the world who are smarter than you who would be annoyed by how dumb you are compared to them.

Since when was ignorance a sign of low IQ? Yeah, we really should start to worry if people can't tell the difference between ignorance, and low intelligence.

I do not know if youre serious.

It is crazy and is a form of discrimination. Your idea disturbingly resembles that of nazi's.. without violence part.

Selective breeding, however, i believe is being practiced to eliminate or lessen certain kinds of genetic diseases or congenital disorders. This type of selective breeding is morally acceptable and for my perspective it immoral to actually breed an offspring who has a high percentage of acquiring a genetic disorder.

Your idea of selective breeding is discriminatory in nature since it disregards the rights of the people who's intelligence dont past the requirement. Furthermore you want thwart their other rights including the right to vote and travel. Everyone should have equal rights, stupid or not.

Ignorance to the reality around you is just as bad as having a low IQ. Because Ignorance leads to bad choices, such as people being voted into office corrupt or low IQ people do to their religion they belong to instead of what they can do to better the community.

As a example listen to this guys last few remarks. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBhx1iUpAWo

No I do not want America to start another Dark Age because stupid or ignorant people do not want well known/proven facts taut in school (60% of Americans do not believe in Evolution even wen it is a fact with a mountain of evidence backing it up.)
Hence the Standing still Of science and progress.

So No Their should be a IQ test, or at least a test to verify the person has a common understanding of the reality around them.

But that was hardly my point. You could have an IQ of 200, and still not know where Africa is, still make bad choices, etc. I don't see how ignorance is related to low/high IQ in the first place as it was mentioned in the OP. Ignorance is apparently curable, but when you're born stupid then there's hardly anything you could do about that. Apparently we should now discriminate against retards because some ignorant fellow thinks that ignorance = low IQ. If there's anything that should get discriminated against then it's nescient people who actually had the possibility, or still have, to do something about that.
Secondly, I don't really understand this bit: "low IQ people do to their religion they belong to instead of what they can do to better the community." <-- if you could elaborate this bit, that would be greatly appreciated.

I'm still smashing my head against the wall when I read this: "...I believe that people should in fact be required to take an IQ test to be able to do certain things. Honestly I am seeing America become more and more ignorant everyday...."

Do IQ tests test knowledge? Do they? Do they? If yes, then it's not an IQ test.

Sorry IQ tests won't help. Maybe if you could test for knowledge and or critical thinking.

Do IQ tests test knowledge? Do they? Do they? If yes, then it's not an IQ test.
This, I was waiting for an individual to challenge the general misconception of the now standardized IQ "test", with an impressive critical analytical thinking.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not here to disagree with you, no. Because I'm also like you when it comes to questioning the general "knowledge"/myth about the IQ test itself. Because when a lack of knowledge was the result of the attitude known as ignorance, then a person with an infinite amount of knowledge can still lack creativity and innovation, if and only if it was caused by a bad personality trait known as pessimism.

Furthermore, I would argue that any test of knowledge that's designed within an artificial environment, can equally be manipulated by refreshing the human memory on knowledge-based remembering. This is also known as procrastinating right before a test, so that your memory on the subject stays fresh within the next 5-6 hours or so. However this doesn't even count as "learning" or "mastering", when all it was is "remembering".

And in the real world where uncertainty is the norm, this type of mentality works really bad most of the time, while it could just got lucky for the few times when it had it right. And worst of all, it could be wrong in a situation that would require completely different, or even a brand new approach. But this type of reactive thinking will have no idea to know that this is the case to make an exception.

This is only phase 1 people!

Once the 1-120 IQ range people are eliminated, we will be only 120+!
Phase 2 begins! The 150+ will suggest that 120-149s are idiots and should be weeded out. Screw those people who believe the Big Bang over the Swirling Vortex theory of origin. The Big Bang idiots are slowing society down!


Okay enough with this sarcasm bullshit, I'll get to the point:

1. IQ is not completely an inheritance factor. Is it? Yes, but it also has to do a lot with upbringing. This will solve nothing. My parents aren't smart and have probably less than 100 IQ. That means that I shouldn't have been born in your opinion. Well fuck you.
2. Might as well try to get rid of democracy altogether. If that minimum wage waitress with a 90 IQ is making and serving your food, she damn well deserves to vote.
3. Some how, I don't think allowing people to not visit other countries under certain restrictions will solve our "close-mindedness" issue.

You're no more different than the so-called "dumb people" who impose their beliefs on others. The only difference is that you, for some reason, think you're smarter than they are.

Short version: You're an idiot and stop trying to act smart.

this movies off the topic a little but still pertains to it.

I do believe people should have to get a licensee to have children, one that requires you to pass a simple physical examining your health, mental health, and economic standings.


Nothing to hard.. But people with physical traits that can be passed on like cancer, blood disorders should not have kids.
For the betterment and safety of the children one should have to be sane and have a strong foundation in reality.
Also for both helping the economy and for the welfare of the children a person economic standing should be examined.
We do not need more kids on the street do to families to poor to raze them.

No one should have kids. our population needs to be reduced by about 3/4 and since I see no one (including myself) stepping up to be one of three out of four....

we need to stop having more kids.

'Hence why this ideal works.. "

It would eliminate a lot of the people known to have more than one or two kids.. Namely the welfare cases and also would eliminate a lot of the strain on are economy.. But we can not just cut back or stop having kids..
'If we did that we have a gap that would lead to a time where we have know one to fill for work and such.. but then I guess we can maby limit it to a year here and a year there as designated non reproducing times. To keep populations from rising.
