Jason Hartman talks with Ed Dutton, author of At Our Wits End: Why We’re Becoming Less Intelligent and Churchill’s Headmaster: The ‘Sadist’ Who Nearly Saved the British Empire, about why our society has reached the point where we’re beginning to become dumber and what point of the cycle we’re in.

[16:18] It doesn’t take many maladaptive people to poison the well
