Why is the bar that’s set for “average” in society so low?

What if we lived in a world where average was considered the level of wisdom of Martin Luther King, the level of intelligence and work ethic of Elon Musk, the level of physical strength and athleticism of LeBron James. Instead, the average person resembles the regular shopper at Walmart in middle America Kentucky

    That bar is set such that there is no one who falls below it to prevent anyone from being "below average" and thereby "feeling" bad about it.  It is constructed by people who use emotional logic to guide their lives rather than objective truth.  These people are of a collective mindset and reject individuality.  Their locus of control is external and they vote for liberals.

    Average is just that. It's an over simplification, but the less intelligent and poorly educated have more (less intelligent) kids. The average continues to go down.

    Liberal policies for decades have held back the best and the brightest so the “least” could catch up and not have their feelings hurt.  The “no child left behind policy”  and participation trophies were all part of this trend;  Refusing to recognize the brightest  and not encouraging others to be their best.   Ignoring the fact  that we are NOT carbon copies of each other and all have different abilities, and that some actually have to work harder than others to achieve the same thing.   I believe the dumbing down of our young was purposely orchestrated.
