Democracy is for smart people.

Here’s the real problem with global democracy. Democracy only really works with a population with an average IQ over 90.

I’d love to be proven wrong on this but there’s no examples of low IQ societies thriving as democracies. You can come up with all sorts of fancy economic hypotheses and conspiracy theories about why democracy isn’t working swimmingly in Uganda — but the fact is that it isn’t. And you’ll find the same thing all over the world.

As IQs have fallen in America we’re seeing politics become more and more dysfunctional.

Whenever we try to impose democracy on <90 IQ population groups it turns into a bloody mess!
