OK, here you go...you asked for it!
wanna know why so many people are so stupid? we, as a society have eliminated "survival of the fittest." thru technology, medical advances, and governmental leadership, we allow all of those people who would otherwise die, to continue to live and breed.
i don't exclude myself, but my thoughts are based around a global point of view, not american...or "me". yes, i am proud of the country i live in, and of the service men of my country....but when you take 2 steps back from the window you are looking into, you see the "big picture."
examples (i can list a bunch!). again, this is nothing personal to anyone and i admit to being somewhat of a hypocrit on some things, especially minorities. i don't care if your black, brown, red, greek, canadian, german, catholic, hindu, buddist, the mayor or the garbage man. if you treat me with respect, you will receive identical treatment (if not better) from me. anyway:
1). medical help for the needy, elderly, and sickly. well, 75 years ago these people would die and not live on helplessly consuming resources that i work hard for.
2) education. just about anyone (except a standard white male) can get a scholarship. that means that average, or below average students are graduating with degrees and go on to "lead" the world. the system is somewhat based on diversity quotas and less on intelligence.
3) government. they want to make as many people happy as they can so they get re-elected next term. so, feed the hungry, make playgrounds safer, give everyone a warm-fuzzy feeling.
basically, we have created an environment ideal for breeding stupid people.
johnny is drunk and runs his 85 camaro 150mph into a bridge and lives. he and his family sue the bartender for 45 million $$$ and win the suit. johnny gets a stripper girlfriend into wife and they breed...you can guess the rest.
100 years ago, if you couldn't feed yourself, you died. if you could, you lived and bred. if you were sickly, you died. if you were healty, you lived and bred.
get the point?
please, feel free to comment on this! creative debating can be very entertaining. when dealing with people with various points of view can sometimes make you realize you are not the only one.
