### Indeed, this is the case. On both the biological and memetic
evolutionary levels, there is very strong selection against PhD feminists
and in favor of Amish housewives. The robot Apocalypse will come soon
enough to make this process irrelevant but one can idly speculate about the
society where evolution was allowed to run along these lines for a few
hundred years. Just as, per Gregory Clark, about five hundred years of
evolution in England changed the minds of Englishmen, a couple hundred
years more could change Americans, too.

It's not Idiocracy that would prevail there but rather the Plain People.
