If indeed individuals are being "dumbed down" as you say...

and they may well be...then this must be the objective of the ruling group(s) as proposed in my original comment. This fits in very well with the trend that I perceive towards intra social collectivisation. It is I believe an inevitable result of individual alienation and powerlessness that each individual seeks to overcome through the exploitation of others. This may be presented as something more palatable but is indeed exploitation.

Incidentally the same tendencies were present in the Roman Empire which was every bit as exploitative as our own society. This is inevitable given the ontological conditions of humanity's existence. Fundamentally human nature viewed as a single organism, which in reality it is (we are all connected), has not improved one bit since the beginning, indeed one could make an argument that the process of physical death, decay and corruption that we have all inherited and which expresses itself in our radically imperfect behaviour has tended to accelerate to the point that we now believe the ruling group (s) intend to kill off 90% of the human race. Population control i.e. soft genocide is indeed the subject of polite conversation amongst the educated elites. How evil is that?

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
