There's an IQ researcher named Woodley who has proposed IQ has dropped about 13 points in the UK since Victorian times. I have found his work pretty compelling and suspect it applies to the U.S. as well. I suspect that intelligence was more highly prized before the revolutionary movements.
The epigenetic changes- industrial food, excess artificial light, xenoestrogens, etc...- these are the things that are making Idiocracy look prophetic. Often, even the intelligent are badly informed and that bad information is reinforced by the sick environment.

Yeah this video keeps my husband insisting we have more than 2 kids. He keeps telling me it is our responsibility to out breed the stupid. I informed him I'm not stupid so I'm not having any more kids.

Hooray for fools luck - the second time we got twins
On a more serious note, this film had a major influence on me reconsider having children at all.
And there is always the possibility to use a well known agent of temporarily dumbing down to initiate procreation.
I advice the agent and the movie in combination for maximum effect.
For proper medical advice please see a doctor
I love this movie! High Art for sure. I think it's funny that it was created by Mike Judge who gave us that serial cautionary tale called Beavis and Butthead, because to me it seems like it portrays a world where everyone is that dumb. Too bad "American Idiot" from Green Day wasn't out yet. Woulda made a perfect soundtrack song! Uuuuuuh, uh huh, huh, huh huh... he said butt...
