Just my opinion, but I suspect that any interesting discussion that would draw in folks of various backgrounds, age groups, etc., would try to avoid trendy acronyms.

I recall some concern being expressed over the moral decaying of society during the '60s. We managed, somehow, to survive. And we will again. If we're lucky, we'll learn from the mistake that is Trump, and choose more carefully the next time around.

In short, the reasons for all this is the lack of morality in people these days.

Or, Dan Quayle and the misspelling of potato.

I know it's hard to be positive when we have a president like Trump, but try.

There have always been despicable, evil people. Just like there have always been unimaginably kind and loving people.

Can't have light without darkness.

What we need is a balance between the two. Religion is a way of control, don't sleep with the neighbors wife because it really isn't the right thing to do. On the other side of that is , why let some silly commandment (for an example) tell me how to run my sex life. Of those two examples which one is really the right one ? I'd say the first one, the second one will eventually break down the family structure.
We have one side letting 3 year olds pick what gender/sex they want to be , before the kid even develops any kind of character, personality, etc. No wonder they are growing up with no way to cope with life.


What we are turning into is a society that lacks respect, any sort of guilt, and no fear of the consequences of their actions. If one wants to get their opinion across, there is no rational communication, it is basically scream the loudest, and insult the other side until you get your way. To many people are signing up to group think instead of thinking for themselves. Not sure why, are they afraid to be alone ? I remember reading an article a while back about many felt alone.
Children aren't being raised by a family, they are being raised by teachers, social media and TV. Mom and Dad are too busy working to pay attention, so they spoil little Johnny with everything they can, and letting him get away with anything, creating an entitled brat that eventually grows up to not be able to deal with society.
little johnny is all grown up now. Lazy and entitled, any time I can crush them, I do.

Many self-professed 'moralists' would welcome a return to those times.

When you are talking about intelligence, productive,etc of human beings you are half a step away from eugenics and nowhere near evolution.

And honestly if you have to lie to make your point you’ve lost the debate already. IQ is consistently increasing worldwide, and this is such a universal phenomenon that it has a name, the Flynn effect. Best part, no one is exactly sure why.

This may be true, but not for here in the US, it seems as if we are falling behind.

You think the above study is about the US? Did you read it? It never mentions the US. Norway is the main country that was looked at this post there is passing reference to a couple of other European nations.

I went and read the actual study the article is about. It was set in Norway, which is not part of the US It is an interesting article, thank you for sharing,

Most interesting is that they statistically rules out any influences from parents, but instead attribute the trend in Norway to environmental influences.

I am not sure why you think this page about average IQ statically not over time is more relevant than the page actually about IQ over time by nation that I linked to in the post you quoted.
