A good introduction to the wide range of measures taken by the State and corporations to reduce the intellectual capacity of society, thus making them easier to control.
“Were developing a society because of all these different toxins known to affect brain function.
We’re seeing a society that not only has a lot more people of lower IQ, but a lot fewer people of higher IQ. In other words: a dumbing down, a chemical dumbing down of society.
So everyone is sort of mediocre. That leaves them dependent on government, because they can’t excel.
We have these people of lower IQ who are totally dependent. Then we have this mass of people who are going to believe anything they are told because they can’t really think clearly—and very few people of a very high IQ have good cognitive function who can figure this all out.
And that’s what they want.
So you can kind of piece it together as to why they are so insistent in spending so many hundreds of millions of dollars of propaganda money to dumb down society.”
In addition, this comment from the Telegraph sums things up pretty well.
Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, whose official title is the Queen’s Master of Music, described Hirst’s work – which recently raised £111 million at auction – as “manufactured artefacts without content.”
In a speech to the conference of the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters, he also criticised politicians and educationalists and warned that the country was in an “age of commercial depravity and irresponsibility”
“Over the last decades, since Thatcher, every commodity, including culture, not only has to be ‘approachable,’ but, above all, have a measurable market, or commercial value, and must be demonstrably accessible to the largest spread of public. My main concern is how this is changing the face of our musical culture,” he said.
“Politics has dumbed itself down to almost below the horizon, with the public given no credit for intelligence or intellect, while, ironically, ever fewer people trouble to vote, such is the disillusion and disgust.
Sir Peter also took a swipe at educationalists and the “lowest common denominator” rule which meant that “nothing must be challenging, where blandness is all-pervasive, where students at all levels must feel good, confident, and at all costs never be allowed to imagine they could ever, if they don’t work, be considered a failure”.
You can thank the Neo-Liberal Marxists for that. No one is allowed to feel inferior via competition (which in reality actually serves to raise the levels of everyone participating, as failure was looked down upon). Now failure is rewarded, as pass marks are lowered, and science exams are deliberately dumbed down to ‘stop students feeling stressed out’. This, along with the propaganda of corporate media, helps the psychological effectiveness of the scientific dictatorship, as the plebs put ever more trust in their rulers and government funded scientists.
Humans are fucking pathetic.
