Y'all are on some serious other-level type shit now.
the best of their society kills themselves constantly, thus eliminating the most honorable (positively correlated with intelligence)
Are you sure it's the best of their society? I would think that suiciders would be, by definition, the weakest/unintelligent. Even if they see their society is totally routinized, sanitized, and domesticated, wouldn't the strong/smartest somehow get by?
... Japan, Germany and Italy gave the world just about everything... Russia, next to nothing, and the USA, outside of technology, just about nothing. The UK is a mixed bag but it's dying so fast that no one cares.
Hitler won WWII by standing up for eternal principles... He also "lost" the war, but the former Axis nations are bouncing back while US and UK go down, Russia is so far down she has nowhere to go.
What, what, and what?
Hitler gets an A for 'effort'; that's rather EGALITARIAN, MAN! He made a good stand, though his military was thrashed by the Allies and the Red Army, and they later split his country in 4.
That's not a win by any stretch of the imagination.
How are the Axis nations bouncing back, while US and UK go down?
Like, by what measure? At a loss for any other, I looked up GDP per capita. http://tiny.cc/vp37z
I'll at least agree about Russia, and US income inequality is increasing:http://tiny.cc/m4w44
