Should the human brain be genetically changed in order to make a more evolved race of hypo-intelligent beings?

    Yes, but we should use it to improve people's compassion and empathy first.

      "Hypo" - as in "lower? Or "hyper" as in "superior"? Yes, the Ancient Greeks did their best to confuse us!

    1. we would not know how to do that.

    2. there are qualities that are just as important as intelligence, if not more important, and that is kindness, ethics, morality, and hard work. Having intelligence without these other desirable qualities does not improve mankind. What if we have a bunch of intelligent, but evil, immoral and lazy people.

    It turns out that intelligence is not as beneficial as it's often portrayed. Being smart is no benefit in a population of predominately lesser minds. And smarter people have fewer kids than their less zippy counterparts - so human intelligence will always revert to the mean.

    Concerning genetic changes to the mind - we're too far from understanding our own biology to even think about attempting such a Frankenstein notion.

    What the hell does this even mean and how do you imagine we could do this?

    Don't be silly. Commercial brainwashing and propagandalies (fake news) are much cheaper and more effective

    Sure - how exactly do you propose we do that.

    I think we already have an instance of a hypo-intelligent being.

    No. Human experimentation is often horrifying and painful. BTW, Hypo-intelligent means less intelligent than normal. Hypo =/= hyper.
