this one laughing quietly underneath my breath

blazepoet on why stupid people are breeding and smart people are apparently not as much:

"With our current society everything is against the intellegent and rational outbreeding the not so intellegent and not so practical.

Who is likely to use birth control? Properly?
Who is going to have more free time because they don't work sixty hours a week and their spouse also works?
Who are more likely to have other interests and diversions that don't include the old horizontal mambo.
And the link between education and the number of children you have and teenage mothers generally having offspring who reproduce early.

It is a very weighted deck... which is sad because it would be nice.
But we can always dream."
