"Listening to each other is what smart people do."
Indeed, Joe. My grandma used to say, "The good Lord gave you 2 ears and 1 mouth so you could shut up and listen twice as much as you talk."

Nothing new, most humans have always been little more than talking monkeys with clever thumbs.
The primary problem that you face is that the "smart people" through science & medicine have subverted Darwinian Law, so hence more stupid to go around.
What really is needed is a comprehensive world encompassing male sterilization program, one that can be reversed for those who can pass basic cognitive ability tests.
Keep the least from breeding the most & the world might become a better place.
Now that would handle the biological side of the issue but stupid can be learned. This can be alleviated with more importance placed on education, that is of course if you can keep the reactionaries from completely gutting educational funding.
Those who feel it's their place to rule prefer a dumb populace, makes them easier to control.
Just look at the stupidity in this country lately in regards to school funding, you hear the rabble blindly screech "education is liberal indoctrination" & they want to close public schools for pay to play charter schools. They have no sense or knowledge of history, a time when it was only the rich & connected that could afford an education while the majority were condemned to a life of menial existence.
A massive increase in birth control & education would do wonders for this world.

Bit sexist to say the least! what about the female half of the population?
