I think crabtree is basing his ideas on perceived ignorance, rather than actual stupidity. I don't think people are becoming less intelligent, but rather that they aren't encouraged to become more informed, knowledgeable because being highly educated, and knowledgeable is seen as a "bad" thing, and even elitist. At least that's what some of our more ignorant politicians claim. And in this country, most of the politicians are idiots. In this country the failure of our kids to excel in our government schools is a genuine problem, and more a political one than due to lack of intellect.
