Idiocracy - A world filled with Liberals and Muslims
Sometimes you can tell just from a plot outline whether a movie will be entertaining or not. For example, I would pass on "a family gets lost and stumbles upon a hidden, underground, devil-worshiping cult led by the fearsome Master and his servant Torgo".
On the other hand, this plot outline for Idiocracy sounded promising: "Private Joe Bowers, the definition of "average American", is selected by the Pentagon to be the guinea pig for a top-secret hibernation program. Forgotten, he awakes 500 years in the future. He discovers a society so incredibly dumbed-down that he's easily the most intelligent person alive." In addition, it was written and directed by Mike Judge who brought us the cult-hit Office Space, a funny and most excellent piece of work.
But, ironically, the movie disappoints because it was itself dumbed down. The narration was totally unneeded unless you are, in fact, a liberal idiot. Films should never be narrated - they are not novels. There are exceptions, such as the lyrical and authoritative voice of Morgan Freeman in one of the greatest movies of all time, The Shawshank Redemption, but these are rare, and Morgan's narration added texture and beauty to the film rather than explained the action.
I don't do movie reviews, the interest for you here should be the writer's underlying premise that because intelligent people usually have few children, whereas idiots usually have very many, that without any natural predators eliminating the slow of wit, eventually the world will be filled with morons. Based on the last election, it looks like we're over 50% of the way there already.
But Mike Judge overlooks one important segment of the huge family problem: Muslims. As I pointed out in my previous post Islam will Rule the World, Muslims are also out there having large families. We will not have to wait 500 years to see the world filled with idiots, by 2100 most of the world will be Muslim. Yes, there's a tautology there.
Unless medicine advances greatly I will not be around to write, "I told you so!" This blog and the responses of my dear readers will all be archived in the Great Wayback Machine, that part of eternal life where all blogs go, but my great-grandchildren will be staring into a world where liberty and freedom will be words without meaning, esoteric fill-ins for crossword puzzles, if the Islamic world will permit puzzles and games.
The world in the coming centuries will be bleak, Sharia-laden, with its women cloaked and enslaved, with all traces of Western civilization destroyed as the Taliban destroyed non-Islamic statues that had stood guard over the Bamiyan valley for centuries. The irony is that as more liberals enter the world, the less we will be able to deal with the threat of Islam. Have you ever met a liberal that understands the War on Terror?
