It’s “The Marching Morons,” not “Idiocracy”

I have seen Idiocracy and thought it was amusing if unrealistic. What is realistic is “The Marching Morons,” a science fiction story I read in my middle teens.

The Marching Morons” is a story in which everyone is a moron except for ten percent of the people, who are geniuses. They invent everything and run society. They finally figure out a way to get rid of the morons by putting them in rocket ships and shooting them into space.

We’re heading toward a society of “The Marching Morons.”

Contrary to Manosphere delusions about non-existent “Alpha fucks and Beta Bucks,” relationships are always Associative Mating. This means the smart mate with the smart and the stupid mate with the stupid (again, contrary to Manosphere hallucinations, smart men like smart women and vice versa, which is why they end up together).

No one is quite sure how much of IQ is inherited, but it’s a lot. Say 50%, if not more. Because of Associative Mating, the smart will end up with the smart – and have kids – and the stupid will end up with the stupid – and have kids.

I have seen this many times and in fact have never seen an exception to it. The number of morons I’ve met who’ve had kids who got involved in drugs and ended up in prison is just astonishing. And it’s easy to identify the stupid in about one minute.

Society is becoming stratified by IQ – and schools are quite good at identifying the smart and sending them off to college so they meet the smart people they marry and have kids with.

IQ is distributed along a bell curve – and the people on the far right are marrying each other, as are those on the far left side. There is even a book about this – the famous/infamous The Bell Curve.

In the past society was stratified by wealth and power and social status. Now it’s by IQ – and the smart almost always make a lot of money. Think Bill Gates and Elon Musk – billionaires (Bill Gates scored a perfect on his SATs and Musk was going to get a Ph.D. in Physics when he decided to drop out and found PayPal).

Even a dumbass like me is in the 95th percentile for IQ.

Unfortunately just because someone has a high IQ doesn’t make them more moral (at the same time, having a lower IQ is associated with hardly having any morals at all – that’s something Idiocracy got right).

That, as always, is the problem – a “virtuous” society. That problem was noticed by the Founding Fathers.

One thing we certainly don’t need to be doing is importing foreign morons. Africans, Mexicans and other south Americans, Muslims? Their average IQ is about 87 and they’ve clearly shown their lack of morality, so we certainly don’t need to be importing more Marching Morons.

What we’re going to end up with is the smart and light on top and the dark and stupid on the bottom. And if this keeps up we’re going to end up with the Eloi and the Morlocks, straight out of H.G. Wells “The Time Machine” – a story in which the stupid were devouring the smart. Which is a huge problem we have today!

Doug Detterman did a 50 year study of IQ and suchlike. I'm about to go through it (link to powerpoint on the linked blogpost).

Hmpffff. The key to survival, be it humans or the ability to adapt. That means the ability to fight when necessary too. Make no mistake, when the race wars start Whitey is going to win it just as he always does. As the saying goes, he IS the meanest sonofabitch in the valley.
This guilt and shame at being smarter, more industrious and more civilized than the coloured contestants is the hallmark of the white idiocracy. It's a temporary codition that will soon take care of itself.

@Bob: I wish I could be as optimistic as you. But the US will not become Brazil. The US will be far worse if demographic trends continue. Unlike Brazil, non-whites are taught to hate whites in America. The liberal, misinformed and corrupted education system in the US teaches non-whites that whites are the cause of all of their problems. The media and entertainment industries just add even more to fuel the anti-white resentment. Whites have disappeared from societies in the past (along with civilization itself), and can do so in the future as well.

Look at South Africa today. Does South Africa fit with your quoted statement above?

South Africa is what happens when the Morlocks take over. The place is, well, Morlockville.

^The smart and light are definitely not on top in South Africa, the dark and stupid are. South Africa was actually much safer and prosperous for both blacks and whites under apartheid with whites in control. South Africa = Detroit.

Most smart men like smart wives and stupid mistresses.

In The Time Machine by HG, it's the Eloi who have lost their intellect. They are little more than herd animals, which are suitable for food. The Morlocks are somewhat brighter, having faced various challenges and overcome them. The Eloi and Morlocks have a sort of sheep/shepherd (or sheep rancher) relationship.

That smart people are attracted to each other is hardly surprising. Think guys, do you want to spend a large portion of your life fixing the problems your bubble-headed wife is certain to bring on? Or, in the case of a woman, do you want to support some beer-swilling Neanderthal whose idea of a mentally stimulating game is slap-jack, and who really and truly believes that you need looking after by a real man?

Each to his own, I say.
