The 2006 film Idiocracy is more relevant today than ever before. Our journey down the path of self destruction is a result of deregulation and the dismantling of checks and balances in out society. Crony Capitalism (greed) and the dumbing down of America makes the film Idiocracy all to real. Just take a look at some of the presidential candidates that we have to choose from, it's almost surreal. Tabloid Journalism, the sense of entitlement, social media, the need to constantly be stimulated, etc. are all helping to create a society of helpless individuals who let others do their thinking for them. The whole concept of taxing one's brain (making sacrifices) as a way in which to achieve personal growth, build character and maintain emotional stability are now a thing of the past. Our own stupidity and mental laziness will ultimately be our demise as we watch modern civilization crumble. Gladiator Games are just around the corner and it's only a matter of time before the next major extinction level event. We're watching the devolution of mankind as we slowly regress into a planet of the apes.
