How did humans get where we are and what is the future of human evolution? The opening scene of the 2006 movie Idiocracy may be on to something.
The plot: Private Joe Bauers, the definition of “average American”, is selected by the Pentagon to be the guinea pig for a top-secret hibernation program. Forgotten, he awakes 500 years in the future. He discovers a society so incredibly dumbed-down that he’s easily the most intelligent person alive.
This movie never got the attention it deserved… 😀
