Intellectual Genocide

Intelligence has been defined in many different ways including as one’s capacity for logic, understanding, self-awareness, learning, emotional knowledge, planning, creativity, and problem solving. It can be more generally described as the ability to perceive information, and to retain it as knowledge to be applied towards adaptive behaviors within an environment or context.
Intelligence is most widely studied in humans, but has also been observed in non-human animals and in plants. Artificial intelligence is implemented in computer systems using program software.

To genocide or massacre intelligence provides for the annihilation, extermination, elimination, liquidation, eradication, and decimation of the human thought process.

The radical theory that there is ‘intelligence genocide’ may seem a ridiculous until you turn on the television or read the newspaper or listen to the radio or participate in social media.

Anyone with any sense of education or mental understanding knows our species are in a different place, an irrational time of nonsense. Our trusted news providers have gotten so conglomerated and lost in entertainment with questionable experts spouting ‘fake’ or ‘real’ facts, the public is lost in confusion. Social media has provided anyone with any idea to post to the world as if opinion was fact.
Novels have turned into comic books, tragedy has become comedy, reality is fading into fantasy and we are all along for this journey of wonder. Mockery has turned to hatred, references of esteemed philosophers have become memes, debating ideas and thoughts have become shouting matches bigoted on any point of view.

If you agree or not, we have gone through a cloud of confusion and have wound up with this ridiculous place where lies are alternative truth and today’s wonders are only replaced by more incredible statements the next day.

Can this be blamed on years of technology numbing our mindless video games and emojis?  Have we dumb down to minimal thought patterns due to our fast paced lifestyle?

If we are in the mist of intellectual genocide, how do we get out?
