    It's evolution

    If you wonder why there is a collective stupidity in the LOS, we all see daily individual, corporate and governmental examples on a daily basis, then consider evolution as the prime cause.

    If a people have evolved in a tropical, fertile and generally favourable environment where you can literally reach out a hand and pick a pineapple of a tree, where the land is so fertile that flora and fauna flourish with little attention, then the stupid can survive and prosper and pass on their idiot genes to the next generation. Historically you don't have to be smart here to survive.

    However, if you have evolved in a harse european climate where everyday is a struggle to survive then only those who are smart would propsper and pass on that intelligence to the next generation and so on.

    Simplistic perhaps but i think valid.

    I think the OP grew up reaching his hand out and picking pineapples off trees.

    Why weren't those extra smart Europeans smart enough to move to a climate where they didn't have to struggle to survive?

    The extra smart ones did not have to move to a better climate in order to survive.

    I suppose that's why Italians are a bit backwards too, they've got spaghetti trees.
