Hei, I am not saying I am a likeable guy. However, that’s the point.
When I was young, many said I am stupid. Then after I ace some math competitions, they said I am too different to ever make money. Then I started a business. Even after money coming my family would get mad because I do not have a job. Think about it. A programmer costs $400 in Indonesia, and I had a business bringing in $5k residual income per month. Why would anyone think I should work? That doesn’t change people’s mind. You do it. You did it. Many will still think it can’t be done.
The answer is very obvious. Government intervention.
Who says the poor can’t afford more children than the rich? Have you take into account political costs and political subsidy?
The poor can afford infinite number of children due to welfare. A billionaire can hardly afford more than 5 due to child support rules that set man’s obligation to be proportional to man’s wealth/income.
In fact, imagine if government says that all chultu worshippers will get subsidy if they have children and all flying spagethy monster will have to pay $50k child support per month per child. I bet chultu worshippers will produce far more children than worshippers of flying spagethy monster.
What’s important is not IQ. What’s important is if a person can contribute positively to societies.
In fact, in some area IQ is overrated and in some area it’s underrated. Only free market can give the right balance.
For example, many things you have to memorize in school is not there to make you smart. Those memorizing is just effectively a primitive IQ test that’s used to get rid those who cannot memorize things easily (like me).
