Our society seems to be increasingly oriented to utterly destroying the lives of stupid and impulsive people, making it near impossible for them to live functionally, so the well-off can profit, pursue pleasure, and virtue-signal
Yet nobody advocates for stupid people
I hate it

Great tweets. I agree completely. I’ve written before about the cognitive complexity increasing for participating in society. It’s taken a huge toll on the less intellectually talented or inclined and is only getting worse.
Since progressives don’t believe in any differences between people, they aren’t able to talk about this at all — yet another huge scotoma of theirs.
We’ve just written off anyone with an IQ below 115 or so, unless their parents are rich. Progressives are ok with this, because ugh, deplorables, and anyway, IQ isn’t real (which means they just can’t, as noted, talk about it).
