JOCK WORLD 2
We are living in a world where intelligence is not only rewarded but almost mandatory just to start competing. Brute muscle powder is no longer economically rewarding. The workplace has been almost completely feminized and any muscle work downgraded in importance to compensate for women’s lack of upper body strength ( the upper percentile of female athletes are only stronger than unconditioned males ). Female equality/political correctness has not only eroded pay, on par with the effects of immigration if not worse, but both endangered our nation with its effects on military readiness and helped robotize manual labor to the point of vulnerability ( other forces at work helped these trends-feminism was just one of several ). And don’t get me wrong, intelligence IS a species trait that has served us well. But culture is vastly more important than intelligence. Culture is the species DNA which passes on beneficial behavior. Intelligence needn’t be in constant use, as the past fruits of that are passed down in culture. I would even state that today’s vast population of bred to better intelligence people are going to do us very little good as our cultural institutions have been destroyed ( guess what I’m going to say next. That’s right, “thanks in no small part to the feminist movement” ). By wrecking our culture ( which, admittedly, can ultimately be attributed to our economic masters who used the process as a profit mechanism. I do enjoy bashing FemiNazi’s but I’ll always give the devil his due ), then by breeding out warriors and inbreeding nerds and geeks, our immediate future is one of the survival mechanisms of culture and violence being destroyed or severely hampered.
Who is outside our economy? Who is marginalized and maligned? Those dumb jocks. Almost all of the jobs anymore are accredited or licensed not just to minimize competition, increase government control and revenue, maximize earnings, but also to edge out the uneducated. Even something as simple as cutting hair required thousands of dollars in “college education” in most states. What was started for medical doctors with the excuse of public safety has intruded itself into almost every occupation as a means of profit, control and exclusion. School anymore is a joke, just studying for the test rather than retention, but that is enough to exclude whole classes of people. Not only is this stupid, as it nourishes the next rebellion, but it marginalizes otherwise useful classes.
Come the collapse, the citizens of the civilization are going to be in grave danger from the barbarians within the gates as the citizens have been bred to uselessness insofar as surviving crisis ( and the Pretty Prepper Punks thinking they are Billy Bad Ass enough to take on the barbarians are just poser rich losers who haven’t a clue ). Brute force trumps intelligence in the end, come the collapse of the infrastructure which utilized that intelligence. No matter how smart you are, intelligence will only help you PRIOR to the collapse. If you took the needed steps to prepare, such as crowd avoidance and other strategies, then you just might live to pass on your superior genes. But more likely than not, the better DNA being passed on will be that of the warriors. At the end of the first day of the apocalypse, brute force will prevail. And that implies the death, or at least dearth, of intelligence. Force and might supplant smarts. Intelligence is only needed in advanced, energy surplus economies. In a die-off, you NEED intelligence to pass on needed skills and knowledge, but what you GET are survival of the fittest. To survive, with limited resources available, the strong eliminate the smart. That makes the recovery take much longer. And so the cycle continues.
