    With the advancement of the science of genetics we will eventually ....perhaps soon...be able to increase the intelligence or i.q. of everyone....to a certain point which is not determined yet.

    But.............would it be a wise thing to do? For any advanced society to function in a efficient manner there must be a division of labor.

    If everyone had a genius i.q. how would you get these people to perform menial tasks that no one really wants to do? And really what would the point be of having a society where everyone was a genius...most high i.q. people accomplish very little.

    I do think when that time comes(having the ability to raise peoples i.q.) that such knowledge should be used to help the folks with very low i.q.'s as in to bring them up to the norm of intelligence for that society.

    There is no doubt low intelligence causes a lot of problems for society.



    'As scientists move closer to making the possibilities of human genetic engineering a reality, open debate on the subject becomes increasingly crucial. We must raise public awareness of emerging technologies and foster an open and honest dialogue between scientists and the public about their potential uses and ramifications. If we are to learn from past mistakes, we should all be actively engaged in how these technologies are deployed'.

    Yes...I welcome a world full of intelligent groids. Their violence and poor time preference would reduce considerably.

    Did you really say (think) intelligence is a bad thing?

    No....I think it is just not something for the masses...genius i.q. level i mean.....but it would be good to eliminate mental retardation and very low i.q.'s in the masses .....as in...bring them up to the average pop. i.q. level.

    At least until we perfect robotics to the extent we no longer need menial laborers or what is referred to as the 'division of labor' that separation of workers required by society to function efficiently ...meaning at the bottom common laborers who do the low paying dirty work, and moving on up to the skilled workers.

    If everyone was a genius it would be difficult to find common laborers, agricultural workers etc.

    Independent thinking is pretty rare.
    Independent thinking would be necessarily to combat societal abuses.

    All the book smarts in the world means absolutely nothing if that person has no common sense.

    Low IQ people are not the problem in this world. The problem is those with a high IQ who think they know better than everyone else and mess everything up because they lack common sense.
