Average Human IQ is in Decline Worldwide
It takes a lot of smart people to run a modern, high technology national infrastructure. This is why you cannot count on 24 hour electricity from the power grid in Africa, the middle east, or the rest of the third world. There is simply not enough brainpower in most third world regions to keep the critical infrastructures online all the time.
Population Decline in Advanced World
Smarter and better educated people are having fewer children, relative to the dumber and less educated. This is true both within countries, and when comparing different countries with disparate population IQ averages. For the future, that is bad news for critical infrastructures and national “carrying capacity” of future societies.
It seems that the way that we as humans evolved has now switched over to allow the people who can breed the most with each other are the most fit to survive. __ Brendan Baker Hartford.edu
Because of the importation of modern vaccines, antibiotics, surgery, sanitation and other advances from the first world, people in the third world are now enabled to procreate at high rates, reasonably expecting most of their progeny to survive. This high level of survival is new, and almost entirely due to the contributions from outside infrastructures maintained by high IQ outsiders. But these newly surviving 3rd world progeny are themselves unable to maintain the infrastructures that make their survival possible on their own. As each new incompetent generation piles atop pre-existing incompetent generations, more and more outside help will be required to sustain them.
But the Helpers are Dying Out
Unfortunately, human populations in the high IQ developed world are in decline — perhaps terminal decline, if ideological leftists have their way. When outside help stops coming in to the third world, the great dieoff will begin.

The modern way of life in advanced countries depends closely upon the number of intelligent persons available to maintain and improve their complex infrastructures. If average human IQ drops within traditionally high-IQ nations, the number of intelligent “enablers of infrastructure” will tend to decline — and more frequent breakdowns of infrastructure will occur.
Some of the mechanisms underlying the ongoing decline in average IQ scores can be studied by reading the book Dysgenics, by Richard Lynn. The book is available free for download at the link above. IQ is up to 80% heritable, suggesting that those humans who breed most have the greatest affect on average human IQs of future generations.
The great leaps forward in science and technology that the world has seen over the past few centuries, cannot continue if smarter people stop having babies.
The Lynn-Flynn Effect is Now Reversing
At least partially due to immigration from the third world (avg. IQ ~ 80) average IQ scores across Europe and the Anglosphere have been dropping over the past two decades. The effect of IQ decline from dysgenic immigration and dysgenic breeding among citizens will exhibit an exponential effect — very small at first, then increasing rapidly over time.
… with the ever-rising population of the earth… the average I.Q. will undoubtly continue to fall. It seems that the way that we as humans evolved has now switched over to allow the people who can breed the most with each other are the most fit to survive. It has been proven that people with similar I.Q. scores are more likely to breed with each other. So their offspring will have a similar I.Q. to their parents. So if the parents had an I.Q. of 75 their child is more likely to have a similar I.Q. to them. So its assumed that if the worlds population continues to grow at the rate its going that the average I.Q. by the year 2050 will be an 86.32 which is almost a ten point drop from 1950. __ Brendan Baker

The anti-natal rhetoric in universities is becoming more widespread and vitriolic. Young women are strongly influenced by friends and perceived cultural norms when deciding whether to have children. That is bad news for the future of childbirth among future cohorts of female university graduates, since the group consensus among the college educated is coalescing around the “anti-natal” viewpoint.
The reluctance of first-world young women to procreate will indirectly lead to a significant cascading third world population die-off within a very few generations. The extent to which this “third world dieoff” is paralleled inside the first world will depend upon the levels of third world immigration into the advanced world, which is to take place over the next 20 to 40 years.
Plan for this Phenomenon
Some parts of the first world will suffer more from third world immigration, than others. Just a bit of snooping around should help you decide which zones will be safer into the future, than others. Hint: Sanctuary cities are likely to collapse soonest in a crisis.
Include all critical infrastructures on your checklist. You may be able to compensate for specific weaknesses in your future local infrastructure, using advanced skills and advanced technologies which you yourself are able to maintain. But keep those things to yourself.

Note: Population levels in many advanced “western cultural” nations are already beginning to decline. Religion is in decline in the west — the same religion which drove much of the impulse to provide generous assistance to the low IQ third world. So both the number of potential helpers and the root inclination to help are in decline.
Mass urbanisation is taking place in the third world, with the growth of third world “mega-cities” which will require ever more advanced infrastructures just to keep up with population growth. This urbanisation makes a massive dieoff more likely for multiple reasons, since proximity breeds infectious disease, and since more people of low IQ require more outsiders with high IQ to power their growing infrastructures. If the goose that lays the golden eggs — generous soft-touch westerners — happen to shrink in numbers while also losing the will to assist as well as political control in their own countries, the prognosis for massive concentrations of third world peoples is bleak.
Time frame: 20 to 40 years.
Solution: Drastically scale back third world immigration and direct assistance to the third world. Emphasise in-country training at appropriate technology levels. Do not encourage third world governments to invest in unreliable wastes of money such as grid-solar or grid-wind energy junk-monstrosities. Focus on agricultural training appropriate for the locale, and local micro-grids. Discourage the further development of mega-cities and centralisation of power in the third world. Work within tribal and clan structures as far as possible to avoid tearing the basic structure of third world societies to shreds.
