Default Are people getting dumber?

"Dumber, smaller, and weaker"
"Human intelligence has declined since Victorian era"

Are people getting dumber? Has our grip on menial things like vocabulary, grammar, and etiquette slowly loosened to the point of no return?

What's causing this gradual increase of human stupidity?

With the internet everyone's dumb opinions has a platform. There are just as many dumb people, now were just more aware of them.

People are getting smarter. We just notice the dumbasses easier now since they're in the papers, on Facebook and in comment sections.

No. Because in the digital age, ignorance is a choice, and I'm choosing to stay ignorant.

Alright, I'll read them.
