I barely remember the movie I swear looking current and recent past events, but this film sure did predicted future events back in 2005/2006. The biggest prime example is Trump managing to get elected POTUS in 2016.:eek: Education standards have gone way down along with people acting far more stupider then back when I was growing up. But this article sums this perfectly:

Can we as a Nation change course before it is too late?

I’ve said it before when Idiocracy has come up and I’ll say it again.

Idiocracy has a President so well loved he can ride around open air without worrying about being assassinated, has a diverse cabinet, and wants the smartest people to handle to countries most pressing problems.

We should be so lucky.

I mean just today Trump said the fed should lower interest rates so that the US government can refinance its debt as if it were a mortgage or something. That’s not how this works. That’s not how any of this works. The president is so stupid that he thinks he should tell the Fed what to do about the bond market when he clearly doesn’t even know what bonds are.

Jesus Christ.

I know Idiocracy predicts otherwise but I would bet I will never again see such an obviously stupid president in my lifetime. There might BE stupider presidents, but they will be aware enough/not mentally ill enough to hide it.

At this point in time idiocracy becoming reality would be better than what's at the end of the road of our current trajectory.

I will have to watch the movie again. I do have to that the movie does have a POTUS that is smart enough to know that he needs people way smarter then him.

Still havent seen it.
In fact, I've missed a lot of movies. I heard that one conservative propaganda film was a real hoot.
And after finding out how completely full of shit Micheal Moore is, I stopped watching his films.
(although Canadian Bacon is friggen hilarious cuz he's passing it off as fiction, not a documentary like his other works.)
