Media Becoming Dumber Over Time

I’m certain many of you have already seen this report. It is a piece pondering the absolutely inexplicable conundrum of why IQs seem to be on a significant downward trajectory. Specifically it mentions the UK, Denmark, and Australia as three countries whose collective IQs have deteriorated in the past decade alone. Science is baffled…journalists flummoxed. Apparently the effect is quite dramatic in those professions particularly.

Though before even tugging the first string of this unravellable mystery as to what could account for lower IQs in those three countries, I’ll type a few unrelated terms that appear nowhere in the article:

Race
Demographics
Population composition

As I qualified, these are all wholly unrelated to an IQ trend and I mention them only because of their importance to my friend, Eric Holder.

Reading further I noticed the following passage as a particularly poignant example of our media’s declining cognition.

Some believe the Flynn effect has masked a decline in the genetic basis for intelligence, so that while more people have been reaching their full potential, that potential itself has been declining.

Some have even contentiously said this could be because educated people are deciding to have fewer children, so that subsequent generations are largely made up of less intelligent people.

You see, the notion that the West’s complementary intelligence reduction programs of massive immigration and incentivization toward dysgenic reproduction are actually working quite well is…contentious. To whom exactly is not noted. But we can be sure the trend line of their IQ resembles the chicken wing inventory at a lunchtime Popeye’s.

  1. I recently tried explaining to a white liberal friend the dysgenic effect on mean IQ in this country that mass Third World immigration and welfare bastard subsidization will necessarily bring and has already brought. His attempt at a rebuttal was to send me some article claiming that no such thing as individual “genius” exists. Take a typical African tyke with flies swarming around his eyes, whisk him out of poverty, raise him in 17th century Germany, give him the proper musical training, and voila – a brown-skinned J.S. Bach! Works of “genius” are the result of environment and cultural inheritance – a matter of communal effort and of standing on the shoulders of giants. The author of the article made no attempt to explain where those original “giants” came from, however.

    • It’s always fascinating to note the tenuous commitment to their theory by blank slate liberals when the matter of “good schools” is at hand. Strangely they remain indisposed to sending their own children to blossom in the brown and black shadows of all those future JS Bachs at Malcolm X High.

    • This isn’t about immigration. What a ridiculous argument to justify your racism. It is simply due to the fact that dumber people have more children and thus propagate their stupidity into the next generation.

  2. Broadly applicable Chesterton quote that somebody reminded me of the other day:

    “So again, we have almost up to the last instant trusted the newspapers as organs of public opinion. Just recently some of us have seen (not slowly, but with a start) that they are obviously nothing of the kind. They are, by the nature of the case, the hobbies of a few rich men. We have not any need to rebel against antiquity; we have to rebel against novelty. It is the new rulers, the capitalist or the editor, who really hold up the modern world. There is no fear that a modern king will attempt to override the constitution; it is more likely that he will ignore the constitution and work behind its back; he will take no advantage of his kingly power; it is more likely that he will take advantage of his kingly powerlessness, of the fact that he is free from criticism and publicity. For the king is the most private person of our time. It will not be necessary for any one to fight again against the proposal of a censorship of the press. We do not need a censorship of the press. We have a censorship by the press.”
