Do societies depend on ignorance and stupidity?: 7/6/2017 13:03:36

That's what I'm thinking about.

All societies try to instill a bunch of untruths and questionable statements into their people. When people are rational and intelligent enough to question these statements they may also question and reject the society itself. Neurotypical societies need to keep people stupid and ignorant in order to continue to exist.

For example in almost all societies reproduction is necessary. However from an individualist point of view reproduction is harmful. Hence a sufficiently intelligent and individualist society will cease to exist because no births exist.

A society is like a less organized variant of a multicellular organism. Autistic individualism, knowledge, rationality and intelligence are basically what induces the cells to rebel against the organism aka carcinogen. However the analogy ends here. Humans who embrace autistic individualism are less likely to reproduce than kool-aid-drinkers.

^^The problem is that all current societies are stupid. Right now several high-IQ groups seem to be too intelligent to fit into traditional stupidity-based societies.

For example Rabbinical Judaism is kool-aid designed to keep a bunch of people called Jews together. This kool-aid may have been harmful to many who drank it because Judaism was a persecuted religion. However it was certainly good for rabbis, community leaders (and the existence of the Jewish identity). If we have Jews without Judaism they intermarry and their offspring cease to identify as Jews. Furthermore secular Jews have really low fertility rates. Hence we can see a reason why the existence of Jews as a distinct group depends on the existence of Judaism.

Kool-aid was invented for several reasons. One is to keep the powerful in power and keep the society together by brainwashing people to accept their social roles imposed by the society and the same values no matter what these values are. Another is to keep people breeding no matter how much harm breeding has done.

The funny thing is that community leaders themselves drink some of the kool-aid which is why even they breed which is not good for them.
