Reporting that IQ levels in general had been rising steadily since World War 2 before the sudden drop off according to the 1st authoritative study of the phenomenon, scientists say "the deterioration could be down to changes in the way maths and languages are taught, or to a shift from reading books to spending time on television and computer."
With the results of that study perfectly illustrated in this new story over at the Wall Street Journal which the Drudge Report linked to on Tuesday reporting that some people in America don't even know what the 'P' stands for in the name of the IHOP restaurant chain, much less what the 'I' or the 'H' or the 'O' stand for, the fact that a 2017 study found 51% of millenials would rather live in a socialist or a communist country than a capitalist country like America speaks volumes. 'Pancakes', anyone?
Also reporting that among Baby Boomers, only 26% would want to live in a socialist country, helping to prove the wide disconnect between generations, their story additionally reported that according to The Washington Post, more than 2 million people under the age of 30 voted for socialist Bernie Sanders: "That’s more than all of Donald Trump’s and Hillary Clinton’s votes from that age group during the primaries and caucuses combined."
And with the Baby Boomer generation growing older with most in our generation now in the 50's to their 70's, the political future of America will soon be decided by Generation X, the Millenials and Post-Millenials, many of those whom mindlessly push for socialism without taking a look at what socialism is doing to poverty-stricken Venezuela right now, and what socialist and communist political systems have done to free people throughout their murderous histories.
With a very strong move made by 'the establishment' to 'dumb down' Americans seen heavily in the introduction of 'Common Core' into the US education system, to experts and those who've been studying the educational system in America, it's not the least bit of a surprise that IQ scores of the young are falling.
As CNS News reported back in November of 2015, "Common Core is supposed to be improving state standards in education, but its bigger effect has been a comprehensive dumbing down of American education at every level, from kindergarten through graduate school” according to Peter Wood, the president of the National Association of Scholars during an interview with CNSNews.
Warning that the major problem with Common Core was its lowering of educational standards in both math and English, with math standards here in the US now below ALL Asian nations, was Common Core an intentional globalist plot to get an entire generation of Americans away from being 'critical thinkers'? From their story:
Scholars also panned the curriculum’s major de-emphasis of English literature.
“The teaching of literature is not abandoned, it’s downgraded, so you end up with a very fragmentary and impoverished view of what language can do,” he continued.
“The Common Core has this peculiar emphasis that language exists to convey information. One of the results of fetishizing information is that the texts get fragmented… and there’s no distinction made between work of imaginative power and work that’s purely utilitarian in order to treat everything as a kind of encyclopedia entry.
“So in your English language instruction, you can and do get things like EPA regulations and repair manuals read alongside excerpts of the works of Robert Frost and Jane Austen.”
How might a hundred+ million Americans who still get their news from the mainstream media and believe every lie they tell ever be suddenly 'red pilled'? Certainly the msm deserves their share of the blame for the fall of IQ's in America yet a massive 'red pill' event awaits tens of millions of Americans with the forthcoming release of the OIG Report, possibly as early as today, Friday, June 14th.
With the very real 'disconnect from reality' that the 'matrix' which has been created in America has caused perfectly illustrated in this new story over at Zero Hedge which reports "while protestors in Venezuela are marching in the streets resisting socialism... protestors marching in the streets of the US and Europe are demanding it", the fact that so many of the future voters of America still want socialism here is a huge red flag.
And in this May 19th story over at WND in which they report "the Fairfax County School Board in Northern Virginia is considering teaching children there is no such thing as 'biological sex' and also that 'clergy' are not to be trusted if students have questions", we see more proof that 'the truth' doesn't matter to those providing the education, how will students ever learn to think critically when they're being indoctrinated with lies?
In the first video below we hear about President Trump declaring the mainstream media the biggest enemy of America and how the lies of the msm are 'dumbing down' the masses while in the 2nd video below we hear that up to or more than 25% of millenials don't know anything at all about the 'holocaust'. An intentional move by the globalists to set up another 'mass culling' for sometime in the future? We've long been warned that those who don't learn the lessons of history are bound to repeat the mistakes that were made.
