Why our society will fail

Great article here.

The general idea here is that popular consensus leading a population made up mostly of morons leads to only one end: a society where our best resource (people with an IQ of over 120) feels alienated among a politically-correct, lowest-common-denominator environment.

We can even relate this back to sports: Bill Belichick, clearly the best coach in the history of the National Football League, is about to lead his team to a perfect season. "But this is the league of parity, every team should have an equal chance!" Well, you can hinder someone with money restrictions - salary-cap - but you can't fault a team for having more natural talent because they are better at draft picks and fell into one of the best quarterbacks of all time back in 2000. So of course, the passive-aggressive behavior kicks in: allowing everyone to make a huge deal, then shadily destroying the evidence in the taping scandal; ticky-tack penalties for huge yards in one of the most important games of the entire season (Indianapolis); non-calls when Randy Moss is getting raped in the end zone; and most recently, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady having to come up with new audibles each week because NBC thought it would be a great idea to focus in on those audibles as clearly as possible during every play. Now every team will review that tape and that audio to see what his audibles mean at the line of scrimmage. Would NBC have done this with any other NFL team? Probably not. The passive-aggressive behavior penetrates every aspect of our society these days - even football.

Does anyone feel this isn't true, with all the shallow crap on TV, on the news, without any real discussion by our own presidential candidates of the really important issues of the day and the really important effects of man-made causes? Is any one of our presidential candidates even willing to engage someone in the following issues?
  • Israel, as a political ally, needs to go. We bail these guys out time and time again because England the US force-fed zionists to the Arabs, and they've needed our protection ever since we allowed the systematic disenfranchisement of the Palestinians.
  • Our over-population and lack of a sense of social responsibility will ultimately lead to the death of most of us when water and other resource-related wars begin.
  • As a society, we're getting dumber. Period. Something needs to be done. This is inter-related with lots of fun issues that will never be discussed in politics again, the way our system is currently constructed: our lack of cultural identity, our increasingly politically-correct environment, our ignorance of our country's own foreign policy, etc.
  • Illegal immigration has as much to do with Mexican politics as it does with US politics. Mexico has a beautiful piece of land between two beautiful shores, with lots of natural resources, but they'd rather leach off the US than get their act together and get rid of their druglords. If the US took a hard line with illegal immigration, maybe Mexico would be more apt to clean up their act.
