According to Lynn and Vanhanen, in their book "IQ and The Wealth of Nations", the average IQ of the world has gone from a mean IQ of 91.64 in 1950,
down to 89.20 in the year 2000, estimated to drop down to 86.32 in the year 2050. www.fourmilab.ch...
According to "Intelligence and the Wealth and Poverty of Nations" by Richard Lynn, the United States ranks 19th out of 82 countries in terms of
average intelligence quotient. Our average is 98. Hong Kong is first at 107 average IQ, and Equatorial Guinea is last at an average score of 82.
So we're getting a bit dumber as time goes on. Keep in mind that the average IQ of the American population is 98. The accepted average is 100.
That means that 50% of the American population is less than 98. Any IQ that is 85 or below is considered retarded. Think of a bell curve and how
much is 85 and below.
Only 15.87% of the American population has an IQ over 115 (the upper end of what is considered normal IQ).
To answer your question, I believe the government believes that enough of us are idiots for them to get away with their corruption, and they would be
correct, at least statistically.
