Hnestly to awnser your question in regards to what I believe on the subject.
I'd say Yes, I believe the dumbing down is Intentional, just wanted peoples take rather than spew my own conspiracy theories.
I think it's Intentional on 2 fronts actually
The first being Intentional on the part of human nature and the main downfall of Democracy.
People, as you know, intensely fear others smarter than they are... I don't think we need to discuss the school yard situation... even how many
teachers treat and even parents treat children smarter than they are.
People FEAR those more intelligent than they are, it's a survival instinct... from the first half man that wielded a stick against a bigger ape, Men
in particular freak on nerds, and it's straight fear... Intelligence superiority after thousands and thousands of years of evolution is a part of
survival, it's an instinct and it really comes up in school, a spear beats a bigger Gorilla any day
So Democracy, socialism and Communism also... anything any system (all of them paractically are this way in this era) That is geared to being FAIR for
all... is the Death of Intelligence, the minute you leave meriticracy behind, your screwing over the more capable and lowering standards and shutting
off survival of the fittest...in all times since we call ourselves Mankind... Intelligence IS the survival of the fittest
Until now, this has been balanced by capitalism and educational elitism and other factors
But now I fear we are seeing a dawn of a day when... fairness for all is madated... and I think it will be close to a dooming thing...
except for lol, as society that caters to the stupid, and less fortunate continues... things will be disasterous...
and lol, of course only the INTELLIGENT will survive anyway because survival in a world in which... Idiots get control of nukes and chemicals and wmds
and all the rest, lol, can only be survived by those who understand them very well
But the Second factor...
Yes, "They" have started and for some time been dumbing down the population Intentionally
Contrails and the Aluminum, Mercury, Flouride, Not constraining the fear of the masses as manifested in the school system, allowance of products that
contain aluminium... many, many factors being discussed... Prions in a Meat and mammal based diet, Transfat, lake of physical health... Even the types
of Illegal drugs, the most destructive, particulalry Meth and Blow literally deals made to let tons of the stuff into America..
ALL Part of a VAST conspiracy to make us stupid
I genuinely believe... not so much that, it was all intentional in the first place, but that as it happened and mistakes were made, those in power,
"the elite" chose to overlook it, as societies and governments saw what was happening, they ignored, even encouraged the process along
Death of the useless eaters... I'm a transhumanist, I honestly go way beyond wanting to prevent the damage and well into human enhancement as money
allows in my life...
I know full well that Science will vastly extend the human lifespan... in fact that the capacity too already exists and...
Here's the issue, Science and Faith have no basis together in our society, the scientists and those with the money don't have faith that...the human
race can expand, they don't believe we can colonize other worlds, they aren't even willing to try, not space colonies or planets or
the main belief is...this, Earth is all we have and as the technology to best Death is achieved... a great many people believe that... not as a
Holocost, but, they are not going out of thier way to... avoid the population cull...
And I mean that, it's not a Plan... there is no one group, it's a rich guy that owns a factory and the paint has lead i it and he knows what will
happen and... he doesn't care, knows where it's sold, knows the results and does nothing and those that inspect him do nothing and..they have dinner
together, maybe never metion what they all think... but it's not ...like a holocost, those in the Know... Just don't care if many people die... the
overall belief is, there isn't enough room on Earth.
So those in power, just could care less... in any scenario, even nuclear war... people in here debate can you survive, I will TELL you, yeah..3-5
years for various reasons which i won't explain again... survive long enough emerge into Eden, that's the reality...
The really smart know this and have places to spend 3-5 years because they have the money
and they don't care what happens to the rest of us... the dumber people are, the faster the planet is culled...
Like my thread titled, overall toxicity... If stress and chemicals and the rest are making you loopy or sick...who has the Ability to... get the care
they need and resources to clean themselves best.. the rich of course,
so do...lol they get together and plot, in some cases, yeah, there are small nutty groups that want to forward this agenda... but you'll never
identify a mass conspiracy, because most in the know... don't care
Did Germans know the Jews were being killed? Most say know... but, they knew enough to figure it out and the reality, chose not to look... this, is
like that... like, maybe there were 2,000 gaurds (no idea exact number) but it wasn't huge, lets say 2,000 concentration camp gaurds and... 50
Million Germans (also no idea the population of germany at the time, this is for example) so the conspiracy was really small...really a handful of
scientists and leaders..under 50 and a couple thousand gaurds...
But in the end, lots of people knew the Jews were "going away" and for those it benefited, they simply didn't care...
Thats what the conspiracy to keep us dumb is... a handful of people in various industries...like Tabacco...Isolated, knowing theykill people and alot
more that keep the game up... a Ceo here, a politician there, actually intent on causing the demise of many, many of us...
and alot more people who are pretty sure they will remain unaffected playing don't ask, don't tell...
Is that a conspiracy imho... that's all conspiracies
So sure, from each direction and different corruptions and mistakes... a handful of exploiters with agendas... we have if you would agree with my
definition of conspiracy... a conspiracy to dumb us down with an end result of...killing alot of us
