    Was it a slow transition from you calling Trump a "buffoon" to being a disciple? Or was it an instantaneous transformation?

    Donald Trump is president. The thread proposed that people may be getting dumber. The connection was obvious.

    And the topic is not Trump brought is for snarky distraction.

    I'll remind: "About a decade ago various researchers reported that the Flynn effect had begun to reverse in some countries, with average IQ scores starting to decline again. More recently, some observers have suggested that average IQs are coming down because of dysgenic fertility—that is, because less intelligent people are having more children than smarter folks—or because of lower-IQ immigrants and their children. These trends, they argue, are now beginning to swamp the IQ-boosting effects that improvements in nutrition, education, and falling pathogen stress had during the 20th century."
    Edmund Burke: "In vain you tell me that Artificial Government is good, but that I fall out only with the Abuse. The Thing! the Thing itself is the Abuse!"
