Your error is to presume that "stupidity", however you choose to
describe that, is static.  I don't think it is.  There may be some
viscosity, but it _is_ mutable.  And even "very mutable" over the
course of a generation or two.  When you invest in civil society, you
get a more civil society.  You feed it a steady diet of "Survivor" and
you get people voting for movie stars and ruling-class degenerates
like GW.
