And as long as half of the people are below average, there's not really a lot we can do to change their lot in life. I hate to sound like a social Darwinian, but half of the people will always be behind the bell curve.

The bottom 20% always get labeled as "poor", no matter what they do. A quintile is like that.

Below average people can still do quite well, Andy Warhol was a success with an IQ of 80. I myself am below average in every way possible, yet I've managed to secure the majority of an education which will hopefully lead to an eventual job. Having the bottom % have a poor life is one thing (and not one I agree with). but the real tragedy is when systems are in place that prevent movement out of that situation.

Also, you can raise their lot in life, by raising the average and the minimum.
