The short answer is “no.” As you can see by the graphic above, there is significant overlap between the IQ distributions of the crude groupings of “black,” “hispanic,” “white,” and “asian,” in North America.
The global map below displays the “IQ of nations” taken from rough point estimates of average national IQ scores around the world. The data is crude and needs to be updated and filled in, but the scores are fairly consistent with national achievement on many scales of measure.
Behind the group and national averages are distributions. National IQ distributions will tend to overlap, even when comparing the most advanced and the most primitive nations to each other.
Very few residents of advanced world nations wish to live in the more primitive, violent, diseased, and deprived areas of the world. IQ averages do make a difference in real world quality of life, both for nations and for population groups within nations.
Should there be an “IQ cutoff point” below which a person would be disqualified for voting rights in advanced nations, regardless of race, ethnicity, or sex? Probably not, although a test for basic reasoning, basic political awareness, and voter competency wouldn’t hurt anyone except those who are opposed to all attempts to increase election validity.
In the US, persons are already prohibited from voting for many other reasons, such as age, felony history, lack of citizenship or residency, and lack of voter registration. In most jurisdictions, a voter must be alive and breathing to vote, although in large inner-city precincts controlled by the US Democratic Party, that requirement is often waived as racist and inconvenient to the favoured candidates.
Requirements of “mental competency” are likewise not universally implemented, as persons with end-stage dementia living beyond hope in nursing homes often vote for the Democratic Party candidate. And to be honest, felon votes and the votes of non-citizens and non-residents are often counted as well, in particular precincts. Voters are even allowed to vote multiple times for the preferred candidate in US DP precincts, where voter identification procedures can be a bit loose. (New York voter fraud likely, dual registration in Virginia/Maryland, North Carolina voter audit damning, votefraud.org)
And yet, if social democracies are to avoid becoming idiocracies, some standards for voter competency and election validity should be broadly enforced.
And there lies the rub. For what hope is there for implementing even minimum standards for voter competence and election validity when politicians in the dominant Democratic Party refuse to support or enforce simple voter ID laws? The answer is, there is no hope for even minimal standards at all, as long as powerful interests block meaningful standards. And all the while, populations and societal institutions just keep getting dumber.
Power lies in the grasp of those who control the strings of what can now only be called “puppet democracy.” The illusion of legitimate rule by popular vote can be maintained as long as prominent institutions such as media, industry, and academia are complicit — and as long as all participating political parties and candidates agree not to make too much of the apparent charade.
Where does this leave the more intelligent and law-abiding, productive segments of society — seeing as they are being carved like Christmas fowl for the pleasure of the ruling classes, their lackeys in media and academia etc., and the less intelligent, more violent, and less productive masses?
Fraudulent democracy is becoming more noxious to many brighter and productive segments of modern populations. Democracy itself is being rejected by a growing number of intelligent persons. (see The Dark Enlightenment series by Nick Land)
Alternatives to the democratic skankstream remain limited and generally unsatisfactory. The “seastead culture” may eventually grow to create workable alternatives to modern idiocracies. Eventually, space migration may provide more choices. But regardless of the form of government, one must account for the quality of the underlying human substrate. And that is what a number of semi-secret organisations — including the Dangerous Child Foundation — are attempting to address in a productive manner.
The global danger from the spread of dysgenic idiocracy is increasing in all countries of the third world, and in all other countries that have not implemented highly selective immigration policies.
