I found this kind of appalling.
IQ is a basic estimate of the ability to remember details and recognize patterns. The ability to identify and respond to problems is extremely important in society, and IQ relates pretty strongly with income, a rough proxy for one's ability to make oneself uniquely useful. IQ probably isn't perfect, but it's easily the best estimate of intelligence we have available, and it's pretty ignorant to dismiss it because it was developed in the last century.
Survival of the fittest really doesn't have much of anything to do with virility, fertility, or physical strength anymore- God made men, Sam Colt made them equal. Just about every man with functioning testicles can get a woman pregnant. Health is a more legitimate concern, but medical science does a great deal to obviate that as well. Obviously there are positive traits other than intelligence, but intelligence is still really important. >>196413
The Internet and digital entertainment make it easier for people to isolate themselves and grow callous. It definitely seems to hit men harder than women, too.
I think there should be public health measures that baby people into maintaining friendships, at least if they're young. Developing relationships and healthy interactions with the opposite sex should also be encouraged so you don't wind up with as many red pill types.
