I finally got to watch the movie Idiocracy a while back. It was a typical comedy with middle school humor, but I have to admit that at the beginning,
where they showed how people became stupid, was a theory of mine already. Quite funny how they portrayed that one.
The people with greater intellect will tend to over plan and over react to their personal situation and chose careers over breeding or perhaps they
will adopt or only have a single child. Where as the less intelligent and under educated will tend to be more aggressive, have bigger nuclear and
extended families and will out breed the smarter ones.
Also, the idea of a future using a broken English language based on popular slang was one idea I pondered on before. However, the idea of the idiots
gaining positions of power in the government seems unlikely, unless the power had completely shifted over to the shadow government making the official
government offices impotent. Undoubtedly, a small minority of intelligent people would still exist in power over the idiot masses.
Plus I'd imagine that the basic infrastructure would be intact due to the availability of robots or a large pool of unskilled labor.
Overall it wasn't a serious dystopian plot but a situation comedy loosely based on one. Still worth watching at least once to know what people are
