There was a movie that came out some time back called "Idiocracy". While the film itself fell way short of being good, the point that it was trying to make was very valid. Basically it's saying that as time goes by, people are getting dumber. And here in America, that couldn't be more true.
So how is this "dumbing down" effect happening? Well it's simple. Stupid people are breeding at an alarming rate...so much more than smart people. Actually I shouldn't even say smart people. I should say normal people. Not only are stupid people multiplying rapidly, but so are shitbags that couldn't care less about their kids. Why are those the people that have the most children?
I, for one, think it should be mandatory to take an IQ test before you're given the green light to procreate. Those who don't pass should be temporarily sterilized until you're able to meet the requirements, both mentally and financially. You only get 3 chances in your whole life. If you can't pass in 3 tries, you are sterilized permanently so you can't pollute the planet any further. Now I know what you're thinking. That sounds really harsh and Nazi-like, doesn't it? Well, you gotta break a few eggs if you want to make an omelet. Some of the most effective solutions aren't always pretty or lenient.
It kills me when I see good, honest people who really want to have a child, and have so many troubles along the way. And then I see a crack and meth addicted woman that has 8 kids...none of which she gives a shit about. Then I see these tough guy bad ass types, who constantly proclaim to all of their friends and co-workers, "I can't wait until my kids are grown and out of the house". Well I have a question: If that's the way you feel, then why the fuck did you have kids in the first place? How about if I repeatedly kick you in the balls for an hour so that you won't be burdened by that kid problem again in the future. But these are the people who are outnumbering us, until eventually those type of people will be all that's left. I'm actually really surprised that more people aren't addressing this, because it's a very real problem.
