Someone who won’t fess up to it told me about Idiocracy, a 2006 Mike Judge movie starring Luke Wilson and Maya Rudolph. The premise behind the movie is simple. Two “average” people in 2005 are placed in hibernation, supposedly for one year. Something goes wrong, and they are frozen for 500 years. Over those years, the average IQ of humans declines as the stupids have more kids, and the supposedly “higher intellectuals” over-analyze everything and have fewer kids. Over the next five hundred years, corporations truly run everything, except government, and pay people to name their children after their products and to say their tag lines.

Anyway, I’m wondering if it won’t take more than just one hundred years to reach the point of Idiocracy that is portrayed. How often do you see some dumbass doing some dumbass thing (like using your camera phone to take a picture of your crap and email it to someone)? You probably see it more than you think you do. Since you see it more, it becomes more acceptable in your society. Look at the Jerry Springer show. Just a couple of years ago, people would be embarrassed to be seen in the position that they are now embracing on TV. Right now, the Jerry Springer show is looking for just some of the following:
- Is your life like a Springer Show?
- Are you having an affair but feel it’s your lover’s fault you’re cheating?
- Is your marriage falling apart because of cheating? Do you want to confront that person on our show?
- Are you too sexy for regular TV? Want to be a part of Jerry Springer’s Pay-Per-View?
- Do you need the Springer Show to come to your trailer park?
- Are you not willing to give your ex a divorce and still want to work things out?
- Are you pregnant by someone else’s man?
- Are you trying to choose between 2 or more lovers?
If you are one of these people, Jerry Springer wants you! Instead of working out your own situations in the privacy of your home, you want to try to tell the world that you “don’t know me, you can’t judge me,” repeatedly until you lose the shame of your privacy.
I took the truck into downtown Oakland to deliver some toner. By the time I got to the end of the street, I noticed how hot it was in the truck. Someone turned on the heater. It was cold the last time someone took the truck somewhere. Understandable. By the time I turned the corner and got to the stop light, I noticed how cold it was getting in the truck. Someone turned on the air conditioner. Just to recap, both the A/C and the heater were on. I can only imagine what someone was thinking. “It’s getting kinda cold in here, I guess I’ll turn on the heater.” Instead of, “it’s getting kinda cold in here, I guess I’ll turn OFF THE A/C.”
The simple fact that some people go apeshit over whatever the hell Britney is wearing today, whether Lindsay is gay or bulimic or not, or however Matthew smells like is proof of the idiocracy. Well, maybe it’s proof that people are bored and instead of reading a book or building a bridge or curing diabetes, they would rather worry about something that will never change the world for the better. Actually, that’s a pretty good definition of the idiocracy.
The idiocracy continues at an unchecked rate. How many times each day do you see the idiocracy walking around? At first you don’t see it, because you are already there. You are part of the equation. By removing yourself from the equation, and turning into an observer, you will start to see the idiocracy. It’s like a human Heisenberg principle. You can’t measure the idiocracy and observe it at the same time. First, you will start to see a little here and there. Look at these like a researcher and you will see more and more. Point out the idiocracy to others. Some will see it as idiocracy, some will see it as normal behavior. Those who see it as normal behavior need to have the crap slapped out of them. It’s time to stop the idiocracy. It’s time to make America great again. It’s time to be challenged by crossword puzzles or game shows. It’s time to slap the crap out of whoever made this video:
