    IQ tests are gradually on the rise. We are so smart, we have basically subcontracted machines to do our work.
    Doesnt the compilation of knowledge basically mean we are getting smarter?

    I don't really think we are as "smart" as we seem to think we are. I mean, just look around.

    It's because we're programmed for survival, not for morality.
    Unfortunately.

    There were certainly no winners in WW2, everyone seemed to suffer involved.

    Furthermore, and untold number of geniuses were probably killed in WW2.
    Another Einstein, or Edison may have been killed, and this might have regressed Humanity's production / intellect.

    Yes, WW2 bought about tolerance of biblical proportions, one which will lead to the most productive race, (Whites) to eventually be replaced.

    Over generalizing and stereotyping is counterproductive and also way over simplifying

    In nature the Apex creatures are seldom the most numerous.

    That is a reason stereotypes come to be. And some are overcomplicating a simple issue in order to obfuscate a rather clear issue, to their political advantage.

    I don't know. Seems to me Jung is stupid to threaten a country that can wipe him out. The difference between Trump and Obama and Bill Clinton in dealing with NK is that Trump acted from strength- he said, you toss that bomb you will be dealt with in kind. Jung backed down. Obama and Clinton acted from weakness- they basically said, oh please don't hurt us, Kim! Here's some money! You like us now, right?

    Which is stupid in your worry? Acting from strength? Acting from weakness? Other?
