The Loss of Intelligence

Most of the stupidstitious will refuse intelligence and knowledge, having embraced superstition and fear.

They can’t accept the fact that their world view is utterly false. It is not based upon facts, evidence or reality, it is based upon fear, fantasy and imagination.

It’s pretty clear that this has now created a massive conflict for the future of humanity. Entire nations are now being redirected back to the Dark Ages of stupidstitions. The result is horrifying.

This is about much more then climate change, it is about the deliberate dumbing down of an entire species of apes and their actions.

The whole planet is at stake. All life. All future. All (real) hope. Everything.

    Ha! Yes, science should be the basis for decisions-making. However, it is not, and never can be in societies that have been deliberately dumbed-down for decades*, and which are used as conduits for the transfer of wealth from the many to the few (who already have far too much).

    Most of this planet is run by banks, corporations and opportunists, with the short-term goal of maintaining Ponzi economics -based on the looting and polluting of the planet, and Fractional Reserve banking with charging of interest on money created out of thin air etc.

    Tyson talks of people becoming scientifically literate: well that’s not going to happen in societies which celebrate and cherish scientific illiteracy, and elevate the scientifically illiterate to positions of extreme power.

    * I did ‘O’ levels in England in the 1960s. Several years ago a group of top-ranked pupils in England were given questions from a 1960s ‘O’ level chemistry examination. I cannot remember the exact details but the general narrative went something like this; the best mark obtained by any of the currently top-ranked pupils was 25%, and one of the currently top-ranked pupils failed to get any correct answers.

    Now it could be argued that the style of the questions 50 years ago confused the pupils and that they had not studied particular aspects of chemistry asked in the questions. However, I spent 13 years in secondary education in NZ and found that there was an insidious process of dumbing down; aspects of chemistry that were considered ‘too hard’ were removed from the syllabus.

    I was particularly horrified when told by a teacher of English (back in the 1980s) that it was not in vogue to correct spelling or grammar when pupils handed in their work and that ‘how the pupils felt and their self-expression was what was important’.

    Another important aspect is that education (particularly science education) has been grossly underfunded for decades in NZ: too large class seizes and insufficient equipment have been, and continue to be, the norm.

    Gorge Carlin had it sussed long ago. And what he said applied to most of the western world (but not the USSR of course).
