Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal by Zach Weinersmith for September 30, 2014
It's too bad the stupid breed more than smart people like us. Eventually everyone will be dumb. Oh that's a temporary problem. The stupid people are likely to be financially limited in the amount of high-quality children they can produce. True, in the short term they may have more kids. But, as we speak there are a few people with the intellectual gifts to make a great deal of money. Combined with the genetic propensity to produce many many children. It's a slow process, of course, but now that society directly reward some forms of genius, it's only a matter of time before we are overrun by hyper-fecund mega-nerds. See, I can make up theories of the genetic future too. You're ruining my cynicism party, Julia.
Lots of animals breed much faster than humans, but we overpower them anyway. Don’t sweat it.
