The Collapse of Complex Societies
Why Is Wal-Mart Removing Self-Checkout Machines *from Certain Neighborhoods*?
Technocracy may have been a fine idea when people were still smart and preppy in the 1950s, but today’s Western demographics can’t all cope with the machinery we’re required to interface with. I, for one, severely dislike the hotel self-check-in options because it is such a dehumanizing, unwelcoming experience. I expect to be greeted by a human being.
But *certain US neighborhoods* have now been forced to remove their self-checkout systems from grocery stores. I know your racist brain is thinking, “black people robbing stores again”. Except, that’s not it. It’s not about theft. It’s about the fact that sub-IQ-85 populations cannot operate the machines.
Low-IQ populations place severe limitations on the idea of technocracy. Highly technological societies require a relatively intelligent populace. Affirmative action doesn’t make people smarter. But the West has been importing mostly low-IQ demographics, to the effect of lowering Western nations’ average IQ by several points per decade. It means we are leaving advanced civilization behind.
Low-IQ whites, blacks, Asians, and everyone else in that category, simply don’t know how to operate certain equipment and won’t be able to learn how. So you don’t want more of them. You want to invest in higher-IQ offspring.
It just happens to be so that the *certain neighborhoods* where Wal-Mart has decided to remove self-checkout machines are predominantly black. The average IQ of these neighborhoods’ inhabitants is too low to make sense of advanced technology. Most majority white or Asian neighborheids have high enough average IQs for people to manage self-checkout machines.
Then again, why did Western societies need so much mass immigration if we were going to replace low-brow workers with machines anyway? In The Netherlands, in cities like Amsterdam, we observed white checkout ladies being replaced by head-scarfed variants by the 1990s, and later, the head-scarfed ladies were themselves replaced by machines.
Doesn’t such automation defeat the purpose of low-cost labor immigration? Now we are stuck with populations that might not even be able to operate the machines invented to replace them!
A hi-tech society built by an average IQ=100 population cannot be taken over AND maintained by an IQ=85 population. As national IQs drop due to "reasons", the systems must collapse. You can affirmative actionize dumb people into positions of management all you want, advanced societies simply die when you run out of competent people. Even more likely, smart people will increasingly opt-out of working for dumb leadership and focus on things like living off-the-grid.
So, technocracy is inhererently racist, for it never foresaw the mental debility of certain sub-par populations. Our technological society was designed for the IQ=100 crowd. But people below IQ=85 cannot function in such a society. They are, perhaps, better off as hunter-gatherers on the planes of Africa or Eurasia.
Here, then, thanks to diversity, we have reached the limits of human(!) Western civilization. This is as far as it will go in terms of automation and machinery (barring brain implants and robots). As our societies will have to increasingly accomodate stupidity, tons of better solutions will no longer work.
One can even foresee the dissolution of Western Republics and democracies into despotic states, for the stupid can only be ruled by despots telling them exactly what to do.
With a more intelligent population, we could have gone a few steps further. Thanks to diversity, mass immigration, and interracial breeding, average IQs of all Western nations have been dropping ever since the 1960s. And they will continue to drop well into the 2060s. Who knows where it will end. We seem to be reverting to a global mean, and the uniqueness of European nations will dissappear.
A surviving cognitive elite will be increasingly confronted with unpleasant, almost animal-like human beings who cannot be reasoned with. They can only be dominated by authority, as a shepherd dominates his flock of sheep.
This poses an interesting question, though. What, exactly, had been the selection pressure for higher IQs among white Europeans and Jews to begin with? I know, they say it’s winter and cold, and so on, that contribute to higher IQs because of the need to cooperate in colder climates.
But what exactly killed off the stupid? Did the smart abandon them, leave them to die?
I think I know the answer: In any high-IQ society that starts taking on more and more low-IQ populations (because it can), there comes a point beyond which we simply cannot continue babysitting the incompetent. That’s where such societies have to take some kind of drastic action to rid themselves off the unwanted demographics, in the same manner that farmers cull their herds when they are no longer profitable.
I suggest the selection event that actually made white people higher-IQ was simply the high-IQ elites deciding to cull the low-IQ herd. A freak event, such as a cold spell freezing Europe over, may see Europeans forced to remove hundreds of millions of people from their continent. The more cooperative smart people will still find a way to survive together.
And that’s how it’s done, I think. After all, the United States prison population already represents a massive culling of the low-IQ male. If some day the system runs out of money to keep inmates alive, what will happen then? Will they be released, or culled?
The West is experiencing a low-IQ demographic explosion that it must have had before at several points in time throughout Western history. And subsequently, it got rid of such populations—in wars, famines, and deliberate cullings.
What works in Africa simply won’t wrk in Europe.
