There is no binary for intelligence, although there are different plateaus, which operate in a method similar to a binary when a specific task is considered. At 120 IQ points, there is a threshold which determines the ability of people to understand complex political issues, and another exists at 125 IQ points.

But to see these issues clearly also depends on having a certain spirit that is capable of leadership. That is a warlike spirit, a gut instinct of what is right, and an awareness that, without being forced to do otherwise, people inevitably drift back into the usual narcissistic oblivion that turns great civilizations into degenerative stupidity.

People with this spirit, when put in power, tend to beat back the foolishness and leave everyone else alone. This terrifies your average person, who wants to face no consequences for his own bad behavior, which is why he tends to select anti-leaders: people who herd the group together and make sure "we all get along" but at the horrific long-term cost of preventing the constant and united action necessary to improve society and stop it stagnating and crumbling.

We are now seeing the full face of such dissolution in the West, with birth rates in free-fall, people miserable in jobs and broken marriages, the average person as neurotic as a cat on meth, enemies both inside and outside our borders, record-breaking national debt, and industries that are paper tigers. Our elites — politicians, media, academia and other enfranchised "successful" people — are fiddling while Rome burns (or the tinder is at least soaked in kerosene).

Recently the big social media companies agreed to take on the public role of censors, and they were cheered for it by our elites because they need distractions. Look at this masterpiece of deflection:

.

"Beyond national laws that criminalize hate speech, there is a need to ensure such activity by Internet users is 'expeditiously reviewed by online intermediaries and social media platforms, upon receipt of a valid notification, in an appropriate time-frame,' the companies and the European Commission said in a joint statement on Tuesday.

The code of conduct arrives as Europe comes to terms with the bloody attacks in Paris and Brussels by Islamic State, which has used the Web and social media to spread its message of hate against its enemies.

…Twitter’s head of public policy for Europe, Karen White, [said] in the statement. 'However, there is a clear distinction between freedom of expression and conduct that incites violence and hate."
.

"Hate speech" means, roughly, anti-egalitarian speech. It is a way of saying that none can claim the Emperor has no new clothes on at all, because then the herd would panic, and goal Number One is keeping the herd together at all costs. Even if that means we sacrifice our long-term future to the extent that we undergo downfall like Rome and Athens did.

The hype over ISIS possibly recruiting through social media is a red herring. These rules will actually be used to formalize the policy that Facebook, Twitter and Reddit have demonstrated of removing or suppressing non-Leftist speech. In other words, they are now controlled mouthpieces of the power structure just as much as Pravda or the Pyongyang Times. In fact, they are better mouthpieces.

The new model of censorship is here: saturate users in propaganda, then remove anything they post which does not confirm that propaganda, creating an echo chamber where it seems like there is only one safe opinion — with token variations to express your individualism, of course — and any substantively different view is considered to be hate speech or some other synonym for anti-narrative ideas.

Poisoning lies with truth.
.

This has effectively created information contraband and opened up a market for people who want not just free speech, but true and accurate speech, since much like citizens in the former Soviet Union, anyone with a working brain knows that if they see it on a big site, it is controlled propaganda. The alt-right might be the most famous information contraband network at this time.

But let us look into the near future, which, by the inertia of time, is already part of the present:

Our leaders are committed to “fiddling while Rome burns,” or more accurately, inducing you to fiddle. That means that it is time for the gladiators and a solid dose of panem et circenses to keep the voters infantilized, oblivious, stupefied, and self-focused. The individualism of people is both a means of neutralizing them, and the reason that these leaders are in power in the first place; it grew like a disease among us, and then, as it took over, gave itself more justifications and power, so now it holds sway.

The elite have become sandbagged. They are hunkered down, having circled the wagons, and are in desperation mode trying to hang on to power. Since fixing the actual problems would invalidate the conditions on which they were elected, they will not do that, but instead will enforce in increasing degrees the necessity of agreeing with the Narrative to get anywhere in life. If you disagree, you will not have jobs, housing, friends or mates. You will be ostracized as an icky person that no one wants to get close to lest those ideological cooties rub off.
