By high-IQ people being outbred by low-IQ people.

My solution: Create a superbug that eradicates over 50% of the human population. Now let the remants fight for survival and let natural selection flow in again!

^The key is to preserve the ones with higher IQ.
Boundaries between major ancestry-based groups need to be shifted according to IQ as well. Groups with higher IQ should get more land, either on the Earth or in space.

Poor people dont like if they are being oppressed. You are feeding a revolution that way.

This has nothing to do with poverty. A poor Ukrainian or Vietnamese farmer for example is likely to be much smarter than someone much better fed. These two countries need to be enlarged.

^Feeding a revolution? By whom?

Well, a farmer with a smaller potion of land is poorer. And you are feeding a revolution by selecting who gets more land based on something they have no effect on. Thus your social status is predefined on your birth. Thats feudalism. People wont follow it nowadays, though, like they did in the middle ages.
Consequence is a(n) (armed) revolution against the richer ones (the ones with more land).

^^^What I'm proposing is actually not feudalism. Instead it is closer to a more benign, pro-Jewish variant of National Socialism. It is not about how much land each individual should get. Instead it is about ancestry-based groups. For example Israel needs to be greatly expanded either on Earth or in space, so do Germany, Japan, South Korea, Britain, Russia, etc.

Basically groups with their average IQ over, at or close to 100 should get a lot of territories. Groups with their average IQ above, at or close to 90 also need to be significantly expanded. Groups with their average IQ between 80 and 90 should be slightly expanded. You get the idea.

^^There will be a greater Turkey according to this ideology.

So with group you mean countries? Who executes that though? Dont you think that changing borders wont cause more problems than solve? Like expanding Israel would include more Arabs in the country... unless you force to move millions and billions of people away from their homes (worldwide).
Also do you have proof the countries you listed have higher IQ? Are you putting IQ = Education ? Dont forget that IQ-Tests are biased towards white people and thus other cultures will always do worse in those.

I never said that Israel needs to be enlarged into Arab lands. It is much better to have a larger portion of Israel outside Planet Earth. Antarctica is also a good choice.

IQ tests are biased towards white people? By white you mean Caucasian right? Why does East Asia have high IQ then? IQ was not invented by Singaporeans.

Unfortunately there is no habitable land outside earth. Antartica is a bad choice. It's international territory and should not be exploited. No more space to expand.
Also do you have backup for your claim that East Asia has higher IQ?

national IQ sores as estimateed by Lynn and Vanhanen in their book IQ and Global Inequality which was widely disputed for poor methodology and accuracy

I am not sure about the reliability of that source.

Sure but it is sufficient to claim that IQ isn't some white supremacist invention unless the word "white" includes Japanese and Koreans.

Austria is placed 9th? Funny how we are still stupid enough to almost vote a Xenophobic (unofficial) Neo-Nazi as our president. I dont trust that one either.

Also on a more scientific note: The author states multiple times how better education promotes Intelligence. That is wrong. Intelligence is something that is (commonly seen) 50% genes, 50% environment. But if education effects Intelligence, a ranking of countries is useless, since even an African nation could achieve the same as European ones then.
Also it states how access to information raises the IQ.

This is what I mean with it's biased towards certain cultures. Only if a study excludes all enviromental effects on "intelligence" it is reliable.

According to this, a simple improvement of education would even out the "IQ differences", and would render your propose in the Original Post useless.

Tabby,
That always happens, people with high IQ (lets say >+2σ standart deviation, are about 2.2% of population) they will always breed a small number of people (comparing to almost 98% of population).

Our system of education is creating much more possibilities for new kids, even if you are from a poor family. Its not that system of 200 years ago, where only a small number of people could study. Now almost every kid in the world can at least learn how to read, something impossible in the past. You dont need to be a rich child or son of a cientist to have a good education.

The poor countries are growing GDP faster overall then rich ones in the last years, creating better options to more regions.

Having a good education is correlated with having good parents, but that doesnt mean that having parents that are scientists is a guarantee of success, or not having good scientists as parents will result in stupid kids.

I disagree because this is statistically not true. Elliot was likely to have high IQ though.
