Horowitz makes the claim that things aren’t that bad in the USA yet. But really you have to understand that the SAT is a filtered class of students. The dumb students don’t take the test or have already been pushed out of High Schools for being too violent.
There is also rampant fraud with the test.
In the end, as long as our aboriginal peoples continue to breed like rabbits on welfare, and Africanized people slong across our borders legally and illegally to the tune of THREE MILLION a year (1%) yet have 70% of our babies, it’s only 20 years from a Blackpocolypse.
America continues to shit on its best and brightest, using them as work mules to rape with taxes, while our poor live like kings and queens popping out babies and driving brand new SUVs.
This chart shows how even a small shift in IQ can dramatically increase the number of Retards and lower the rare gifted people. and two shifts lower reduces the number of gifted to just 1 million gifted people. These key gifted people are the ones who innovate society driving it forward. Without them, societies collapse. This means our nation could be fundamentally destroyed forever in just ten years with our current legal and illegal immigration policies and a welfare program that doesn’t discourage births but instead rewards it with more dollahs and higher priority for free housing gibsmedat.
Solution? : How about drastically changing the lavish easy lifestyle that our poor and lazy get. Instead of Section 8 housing that places them in regular apartments, how about capsule mini-rooms just enough to survive. We continue to provide a middle class lifestyle but BETTER because they don’t have to work – for the worst and laziest of us. If this continues America will indeed become an idiocracy. We have dropped from 90% of our births being Europanic in 1950 to less than 60% today. And that lower non-europanic life form has a higher violence and theft profile than a Europanic does, as well as being low IQ. These are called the Sociopathology – IQ relationship. Another key solution is to stop paying more for more babies. You get one basic welfare check for your family unit, a bit more if you are a dual parent family. No increases for having children but rather a bonus could be given out for every five years that someone does NOT have a child if they are within the fertile age of 12 to 35.
We have just a year or two left to switch the course this ship is on.
An intelligence crisis could undermine our problem-solving capacities and dim the prospects of the global economy.

People are getting dumber. That’s not a judgment; it’s a global fact. In a host of leading nations, IQ scores have started to decline. …
As yet, the United States hasn’t hit this IQ wall — despite what you may be tempted to surmise from the current state of the political debate. But don’t rush to celebrate American exceptionalism: If IQs are dropping in other advanced countries but not here, maybe that means we’re not really an advanced country (too much poverty, too little social support).
Or — just as troubling — if we are keeping up with the Joneses (or Johanssons and Jacques) in terms of national development, that means we are likely to experience similarly plummeting IQs in the near future. …
If we want to prevent America from suffering this fate, we’d better figure out why IQs are dropping elsewhere. But it’s uncharted territory. Until recently, IQ scores only moved in one direction: up. …
These raw scores have been rising on a variety of standard IQ tests for over half a century. That may sound odd if you think of IQ as largely hereditary. But current IQ tests are designed to measure core cognitive skills such as short-term memory, problem-solving speed and visual processing, and rising scores show that these cognitive capabilities can actually be sharpened by environmental factors such as higher-quality schools and more demanding workplaces.
… Scholars called it the “Flynn effect,” in homage to J.R. Flynn, the researcher who recognized its full sweep and import.
These days, however, Flynn himself concedes that “the IQ gains of the 20th century have faltered.” A range of studies using a variety of well-established IQ tests and metrics have found declining scores across Scandinavia, Britain, Germany, France and Australia.
Details vary from study to study and from place to place given the available data. IQ shortfalls in Norway and Denmark appear in longstanding tests of military conscripts, whereas information about France is based on a smaller sample and a different test. But the broad pattern has become clearer: Beginning around the turn of the 21st century, many of the most economically advanced nations began experiencing some kind of decline in IQ.
One potential explanation was quasi-eugenic. As in the movie “Idiocracy,” it was suggested that average intelligence is being pulled down because lower-IQ families are having more children (“dysgenic fertility” is the technical term). Alternatively, widening immigration might be bringing less-intelligent newcomers to societies with otherwise higher IQs.
