When I was young, I had a high school biology teacher tell the class that natural selection continued to operate on human intelligence. I found this comment surprising because even as a teenager (and even before) I was well aware that IQ experts had long warned that low IQ people were out-breeding high IQ people and that this would have a dysgenic effect. But I had great respect for this biology teacher because the year before he was my chemistry teacher and provided me with a paradigm shifting definition of intelligence, so I waited for the other students to leave and asked him what the hell he meant.
He went on to explain that while people might be getting genetically dumber in First World countries, the overall species was getting smarter because in some Third World countries, even though the birth rates were incredibly high, the death rates were even higher, and eventually the populations of First World countries would exceed the populations of Third World countries.
It was an argument many people would consider racist and evil; and yet, liberal icon Charles Darwin said much the same:
At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate, and replace, the savage races throughout the world. At the same time the anthropomorphous apes [that is, the ones which allegedly look like people] … will no doubt be exterminated. The break between man and his nearest allies will then be wider, for it will intervene between man in a more civilized state, as we may hope, even than the Caucasian, and some ape as low as a baboon, instead of as now between the negro or Australian [Aboriginal] and the gorilla
And then comedienne Joan Rivers said something similar.
All of these comments are very hurtful to my readers, but nature is “evil”. Humans are part of nature and are “evil” too. So when animals and humans have intelligence, natural selection means the smart will prey on the less smart. Survival of the fittest.
According to scientist Richard Lynn, the least intelligent races are the bushmen and the pygmies. Bushmen are arguably the first people to branch off the human evolutionary tree; a population that emerged before the invention of the vowel. Is it a coincidence that their population has tragically sunk so low that they risk going extinct? Intelligence is the mental ability to adapt. I’m sure I have some despicable evil sociopathic readers who couldn’t care less if the bushmen go extinct, but if it can happen to them, it can eventually happen to your people too.
No one can predict the future, but if HBD turns out to be scientifically correct, one especially dark scenario is that high IQ races and high IQ ethnic groups are slowly going to replace lower IQ populations through competition for resources, climate change, war, interracial gang violence, geopolitical strategizing, and cultural manipulation. The lower IQ ethnic groups will likely go extinct first, followed by higher IQ ethnic groups, until only the absolute highest IQ ethnic groups are left, and they’ll have to compete for what’s left of the planet.
If this happens, my great great grand-kids and the great great grand-kids of most of my readers will sadly not be among the survivors.
