"Idiocracy" & devo

Here is a link to the clip we saw in opening lecture from Idiocracy, which delightfully illustrates the (elitist) Darwinian anxiety about the progression & regression of humanity.
"WARNING: The following program deals with mature (Darwinian) subject matter and contains scenes of violence and coarse language. Viewer discretion
is advised."
The idea traces back to a classic SciFi short story to by Cyril Kornbluth, "The Marching Morons."
