To answer the literal question in the thread title: because the average IQ worldwide is 100. That means over 3 billion out of the 6.7-or-so-billion of
us have IQs of less than 100. Chew on that for a bit.
But beyond that, people are carrying over patterns that were ingrained in us since our earliest history as a species. We learned to do many things on
our way up the food chain. But what worked yesterday doesn't always work today.
The world is much more crowded than ever. I know that many people on ATS think population isn't a problem, and I understand the fears of NWO-style
eugenics/Georgia-guidestones-type stuff, but even so, I don't think it can be denied that at the very least we aren't adjusting ourselves properly
to the sheer increase in numbers that has occurred in recent history. Within the lifetimes of many of us posting here, the world poulation has doubled
or even tripled! This is totally unprecidented. And the consequences in the "third world" have been horrific. I wonder if any of you have ever been
to Lagos, Nigeria, or inland Chinese or Russian factory cities to pick several examples out of many. If so I think you will know what I am getting
At the very least we need to change our patterns and find a way to adjust our ancient urges, thought patterns, and behavior patterns to fit the new
world we've made for ourselves. I think it is not impossible, but actually in truth I don't hold out much hope. I keep thinking of a big field of
rabbits that proliferate like a plague for a single season, eat everything in sight, and then starve to death over the winter. Happens all the time.
