In modern society, natural selection no longer exists.
In modern society, those with lower IQ's are out-breeding the 'genetically superior'- for want of a better term.
In the future, will the 'idiots' be in the majority? Will those with foolish views be voting foolish leaders into power? Is this already happening?
This idea is neatly summarized in the following video:

Idiots were and are still the majority.
This is the main problem with democracy, you just can't expect the masses to know who to vote for.
Did you know that 30% of voters change their mind on election day?
Idiots are everywhere.
It's just up to the smart people in the world to figure out how to run this flawlessly.
See the problem in the past 20 years has been that many idiots find themselves in positions of power and we can't seem to ''unroot'' them.
Anyhow this is a much wider debate.
Oh by the way.
Most people consider themselves smarter than the masses, it's funny really.
Everyone seems to think that they are superior.
It's called Primus inter pares or Illusory superiority.If you are intersted in this topic you should read some Van Yperen's early work on the topic.
