In the movie, Idiocracy,
due to inbreeding
not only of genes but ideologies,
the leadership class becomes
so dumbed down they start irrigating
the landscape with an energy drink
that kills all growth.
They believe it's got to be good
because it has "electrolytes".
No doubt they wouldn't know an electrolyte
if one hits them in the face.
Nonetheless they are proud of their ignorance and blissful in the basking within it.
Let's think real hard. Where else have we seen something like that?
Is it in them there "generic inertial navigation systems"?
They got Inertiao, don't they?
Your basic and simple Newtonian principles, right?
