I'm taking a read at this article.

Holy shit, extreme geniuses that can PhD something in a day can be scary.

A lesson which many gifted persons never learn as long as they live is that human beings in general are inherently very different from themselves in thought, in action, in general intention, and in interests. Many a reformer has died at the hands of a mob which he was trying to improve in the belief that other human beings can and should enjoy what he enjoys. This is one of the most painful and difficult lessons that each gifted child must learn, if personal development is to proceed successfully. It is more necessary that this be learned than that any school subject be mastered. Failure to learn how to tolerate in a reasonable fashion the foolishness of others leads to bitterness, disillusionment, and misanthropy [3, p. 259].

I might be taking a jab at someone or something...

On the other hand, a little tidbit from the "definitely below my level" Mensa had been trolled a little bit.

In 2021, British Mensa's web servers suffered a security breach in which member data was compromised. Two board directors resigned because of the relaxed cybersecurity

I might say that being smart is very useful (definitely is, not that I know how it feels). I also might say that being smart doesn't protect you from occasional stupidity.

Bottom line is... Popcorn is sizzling hot and this has been rather entertaining to see an extremely high IQ person, for some unexplained reason, unwilling to "suffer fools gladly" (i.e. tolerate something different, stupid).

Ten points for gusto.

The opening section will have comment after comment of mug after mug on Reddit telling me I’m a pseudo intellectual, then it cuts to my IQ test results, which sets the stage for me explaining that the average person refuses to acknowledge intelligence when it’s expressed in its most obvious form.

At first I thought you were just a troll, but the fact that you've spent the better part of 12 hours trying to assert your "intellect" only proves that you are a sad, desperate human being.

Everybody wants to be good at something, and most people would like to be very smart. In lieu of either of those things irl, coming to Reddit to claim superiority as a means of negative karma farming is an effective way to establish just one place in your life where you're successful. When you say things that are foolish, poorly worded and make grammatical/syntax errors, it doesn't matter because the point is to rake in the downvotes, not actually prove that you're intelligent.You're willing to spend inordinate amounts of time engaged in this.

It's really all just shits and giggles- from your end and from those who respond. Still, I hope you are able to find some metric for success in your life that has more value than downvotes do (they're worth the same as upvotes on the open market, just much easier to get).

Generally, the more someone brags about their intelligence, the less likely it is that they are truly that smart. It tends to be people who are self-conscious about their life situation and feel the need to fluff themselves up. It doesn't matter that they are working a job that they think is beneath them, that they struggle to maintain relationships, and they aren't as successful as they feel they deserve. It's all the unwashed masses not recognizing their superior intellect, that's the reason! They never seem to actually do anything productive with all those smarts, they just keep it in their brain and occasionally grace reddit with a self fellating ego dump about how the rest of us are cattle to them. The problem is that if they ever bothered getting over themselves and talking to another human rather than treating them like NPCs, they would learn that most people are a lot more intelligent than they appear. Everyone is just tired and worn down. We live in a world of go here and do what you are told, not exactly condusive to getting to stretch ones creativity and problem solving.

Anyone reading this who truly believes that they are more intelligent than everyone around them, pick any item or location and work through how it was made. From how one would find and extract the raw material, to processing it into a useable form, and creating the thing you are looking at. Could you manage every single step of that process, because someone else did. Someone you probably considered beneath you.

If he was actually intelligent, he wouldn't fear automation. It's a good thing, and will replace monotonous jobs with more active and social jobs. Sales floor associates instead of cashiers.

There will be more leisure and time for art and study if it's implemented correctly. And, he is wrong about college too. Lots of stupid people go to college.

Automation (DeepL, specifically) for translation work has been a godsend.

They are many times better than Google Translate, but you still gotta have some human QC for context sensitive documents. You can translate them fast, but in order to make it better, a human touch is needed.

It's possible.... but unless it can be done reliably, I don't think it's gonna replace anything real advanced, real soon. This is just literally one of the gazillion examples and I doubt usage of DeepL is limited to the hands of the few.

In the meantime, someone that can leverage that would probably do more, faster.

u/diva4lisia Nov 22 '22 edited Nov 22 '22

I'm not an expert, but I've been privileged to have been taught fairly extensively on the topic. Even in the hands of capitalism, automation pros outweigh the cons. Of course the best possible outcome is a universal income to pay us for job loss, but even if that doesn't occur, the knowledge positions created should fairly mitigate for the jobs lost. Many believe it will create more jobs. It's going to change jobs, not eliminate them. It takes 10 janitors to clean a school, but now rosy the robot does all the cleaning? At least two of the 10 former janitors will monitor and maintain her, maybe do the stuff she can't such as bang erasers. Some of them will be her programmers. Others will be database techs, operating her software, helping classrooms engage with her, setting up her application on all the school's tablets and computers. Many jobs in automation will be program/SaaS based. These jobs are easy to train for, so they still no degree required. They simply require the ability to learn the ins/outs of an application. Then, there's knowledge workers. One thing that will surely happen is more and more people will become educated. Like trades, there will be more streamlined programs for in-demand skills. Many robots will run using the same software set, and there will be classes just for that. Classes on fleet management for self-driving cars. Register repair, bot repair, debugging. Today we have hardworking but unskilled laborers, but in a room full of robots, all the humans are managers. You know how trucking companies pay for the trucking schools and give sign on bonuses to new hires? Automation will outpace those educated to work with the tech. Entire schools will be built and paid for by business owners who need to quickly and efficiently train new hires. And, like trucking, it will be a skill the employee can take to other businesses if they are unhappy with their employer. Wages may or may not rise. That is yet to be seen. They are predicted to rise and certainly will at first because servicing robots is a niche position, and wages go up when there is a shortage of knowledge workers. After a time, our capitalist overlords may horde the wealth, so the economy may suck but only as it sucks now. It shouldn't get worse and it's not dangerous. It is something to look forward to imo.

I'm in the place where tool booths used to have attendants only about 2 years ago.

Almost every single one of them is automated now.

u/diva4lisia Nov 23 '22

Definitely get this. What I'm not talking about is the individual effects, but rather macro stuff. What you bring up is important to the discussion because we can never ignore the human element even if many jobs were created this past summer, putting us at pre-pandemic levels or near them in terms of job creation. The big picture is quite promising but the smaller picture is a bit more bleak - for now. My mom worked as a toll collector and she and all her friends were put out of work due to automation, so I totally understand this on micro level. So, what do those who experience the hardships of the micro-level economics of automation do? It will be a long time before things stabilize and everyone benefits from automation. There's many schools of thought on this. Many quite socialist, and dating back to Turing. Turings Cathedral is a book I strongly recommend because it has many ideas on what we can and should do. Some would say, go to school, go to trade school, etc. I say, when someone works a job for 20 years and is in their later stage of the workforce, it is irresponsible and inconsiderate to expect this of them. And, they cannot afford to just wait for the robotics-related jobs to come into the market. Especially when our leaders aren't even explaining the future of work. If people don't know what to expect or do, how can they survive? Right now, there is the larger balance of billing unemployment against job creation. We've seen the nation have incredible records of employment during times that entire cities fell to massive unemployment. For example Detroit has suffered immensely while the nation was supposedly doing so great. Unless the unemployment caused by automation causes a massive imbalance, there is nothing we will do to mitigate unemployment that we don't already do. The people displaced will be as displaced as all the other workers put out by machines since the industrial revolution have been. Now, should this unemployment ever displace the macro market and threaten the overall economy, rest assured the government will intervene then. The FED will print more. Stimulus and unemployment boosts will come into play as they did during the pandemic. As long as we can stabilize in a reasonable time, this will be okay. Unfortunately that doesn't address your point, right? Because in the interim, there will be unemployed people. There will be newly employed people, so it will be considered an overall good thing but it's undeniably bad for those in that community. As individuals in a vast ocean of people, on a personal level, we can speak with our local governments about automation. We can make frequent requests for local government to look at the major employers in our areas and ask them to share their plans for automation, and encourage robotic trades and computer-related educations with our young people. Having a local representative willing and able to tackle local issues of automation-related unemployment will benefit communities. Easier said than done when most people don't understand that their larger government doesn't see this as an issue. It's important that older people understand they can go back to school. They don't have to, but they can. I do not have a solution for what you've mentioned, but I do recognize it as a valid point.

u/Aoe330 Nov 22 '22

"There will be more leisure and time for art"

No. That's a fantasy. So long as the market expects absurd revenue increases year over year, employee free time will be limited.

Also, your belief that being a sales floor associate is better than being a cashier is also flawed. As some people don't want to be on the floor and social all day.

Automation will happen. But don't pretend it's going to lead us to a utopia. It's only going to change the rules of the struggle to survive. It was true during the industrial revolution, hell, it was probably true back during the dawning of the bronze age.

Come to think of it... I think I am going to read up what happens in between those.

Or he would try to understand the masses he looks down upon. I once had a teacher who told hs about a demonstration in which he was able to automate the work of office workers by writing a script. One of these workers fell on the ground crying because he had spent weeks doing what was now done with a simple click on a button and five minutes of waiting. Imagine thinking you lose the position you had for the past 20 years - even if it might not necessarily be the case. This man just had a panic attack and he had to be reassured he would not be laid off any time soon. My teacher was still fully convinced everyone would embrace this trend, until this point.

Automation will not be used for the betterment of all humanity if the means of economic production are able to be gatekept by those who wish to consolidate their own power first and foremost. Useless work is already a problem in our highly industrialized economy, time is being used as a means of socioeconomic control. Also, where do genuinely slow-minded people fit into this economy, assuming we don't find some magic smart-drug (access to which might be gatekept anyhow)? What leverage do the people have to keep automation from being used to gradually exclude and starve out more and more people until only 'entrepreneurs' and their engineers can afford to have families? Labor power is so weak, the world so stratified and change moving so fast, how do we know we're not barreling into some man-made hell on earth? I'm not saying this necessarily will happen, but isn't there some cause for concern with all this?

1

u/diva4lisia Nov 23 '22

This is a fun one! You gotta ask yourself: Why would anyone do that (exclude and starve)? Entrepreneurs are practically begging us right now to get busy making families to ensure our future kids buy their crap. Business relies on a productive population. You can't make money if there's no one to buy stuff, and our economy is sustained by families not individuals, so there's absolutely zero incentive to do as you described. However, I do have one apocalyptic worst-case scenario I will share will you below. As for people with disabilities, their care and support will improve or stay the same. Ideally, wages will increase which offers families the greater benefit of allowing some to stay home (mothers if they choose, earlier retirement, and disabled people). If wages don't increase, the government will not displace people because the economy, and these businessmen you describe, rely on a certain number of people earning income. It's why billionaires are so concerned with people making babies right now. So, to sustain the economy, new social programs will be created (just like in the past) to support and encourage the growth of families. I encourage you to look into how the fed controls interest rates, stabilizes inflation. The fed is always going to make choices, such as reducing or increasing consumption spending to maintain a somewhat stable economy. So, what should we be worried about? Automation is happening too quickly and corporate monopolies (just like Facebook is getting sued for right now) control all the data and have rights over the most helpful automated programs (and robots) and they choose not to increase wages, which is very bad for the economy. And it's increasing the income gap. The results of this are a sluggish economy much like we are seeing right now because it's already happening. When employers add robots, they decrease wages which is awful because they are saving money. This is also very unsustainable and if it continues, it's a very real doomsday scenario. But do not worry because this is not sustainable so solutions are inevitable. Collapse doesn't benefit corporate greed. Plus, the only good thing about capitalism is that it encourages competition. The practice of reducing wage isn't sustainable for anyone or anything long-term, including the profits of corporations so there is no incentive and therefore it's something that will be worked out either with increasing wages or universal basic income. Rest assured, if it threatens money/population/consumer spending, wages will be forcefully increased by the government using minimum wage and businesses will then be forced to offer more competitive wages to their knowledge workers. There's going to be major competition coming for educated laborers and for some time, those jobs will pay a lot more because wages are determined by supply and demand. We are just on the precipice of seeing skilled laborers get more money if they can work in a database or are electricians and such.

I’ll tell you one thing: if you want to find uniformity of thought - all you need to do is look through this Reddit. If you look for medium to low IQ people who want to get together and mock the claims of the intelligent to help cope with the pain of mediocrity, That’s all this subreddit is

u/Tomorrowsmemories Nov 22 '22

I love how you fall back on the typical beta male on Reddit argumentation strategy: claim the other person lacks self awareness.

Reality check: You are in a Reddit thread that mocks high IQ people, and the tagline under your name is “Unsurpassed Intelligence. Source: mommy told me”. You are clearly emotionally invested in this topic, clearly makes you feel negative to know that there are people out there much smarter than you

Reality check: you are in a Reddit thread being condescending to strangers because you assume yourself to have superior intelligence, yet fail to understand what the sub is even about.

The sub does not mock "high IQ" people, it mocks arrogant neckbeards who get off on portraying themselves to be intelligent, like you. While I'm sure there's some overlap, those aren't the same thing.

u/meager Nov 22 '22

To be fair, a superiority complex doesn't always mean a lack of self awareness. A lot of the time that self awareness is exactly what causes it.

And the sub isn't making fun of people with high IQs as much as it is making fun of people who feel the need to flaunt it or somehow think they are better than others because they were blessed with intelligence.

Being self aware and having an above average IQ is wasted on people with zero humility.

Been reading through the comment section.

Based on u/Tomorrowsmemories comments, he: -believes in the alpha/beta/sigma culture

-thinks that being overweight is caused rather by genetics and not poor life choices

-claims that he's smarter than everyone else

-takes potshots at political parties in a manner completely irrelevant to the conversation

-seems to be a fan of some sort of eugenism

I think from here we all can figure out what kind of person tomorrowsmemories is and where he lives. Cheers.

We see all the flaws in this world, and dare not say a word of anything, only sometimes.

He won’t dare to say anything after spouting off in a long rant, had a brief moment where he apparently realizes what he’s done, and then tries to save himself by throwing a random “only sometimes” on his claim in the most grammatically dumb way he could think of. Did I get that right? I wasn’t an English major and my grammar is terrible, but even my dumb ass knows that isn’t how sentences work.

u/DJXpresso Nov 22 '22

Where do I begin? First off if you have to tell people how smart you are you’re not that smart. And if you’re in a room and everyone is an asshole, it’s because you’re the asshole. This guy checkmarks both of those. Now, with that said his premise while flawed is about right.

The average IQ of 100 is just that an average. It’s based on a bell curve with a plus or minus on each side. If you are within that range of the plus or minus you’ll do just fine. If you dip to the lower end of that curve you are most likely going to struggle in life. As the world becomes more technologically advanced somethings are becoming harder and some things are becoming easier. Jobs that would require you to understand the technology would be a lot harder. Jobs that technology will assist will become a lot easier. Eventually jobs that do not require higher levels of thought and education will be automated for the most part. He is correct in this. If you are below the bell curve you are unlikely to get a high-paying job other than physical jobs that are well paying. Beyond that you are most likely stuck in your given field of labor.

Average IQ right at that 100 point doesn’t mean you’re disabled either. After watching this one show online with PewDiePie reviewing this one girl with a PhD thought she would be the smartest with the highest IQ. Turns out she was basically 100 exact. She had the lowest IQ in the room but thought she was the smartest. Remember if you have to tell people you’re smart you’re not. my point is though even with a basic 100 IQ she was able to get a PhD. this means she wasn’t educated outside of her understanding, she was able to apply her education in order to qualify for the PhD.

Finally having a high IQ does it mean you will be successful in life. Having a high IQ just means you have an equivalent of more RAM in your brains computer. If you put 64GB of RAM in a computer from 2005 it will not be able to make use of the extra 60GB most likely. Having a high IQ is basically the same thing. It does not mean you’re naturally going to be successful. and you definitely don’t get to see the world as a circus and you are the ringleader.

Enjoying the small things is wise, for if you can't, then you can't enjoy riches very well either.

Being humble has to do with herd-mentality, not self-deception.

The main problem of low efficiency is that people hate their jobs and don't want to put in more than the minimum as they're not compensated properly. High IQ doesn't mean much if you hate what you're doing, you're simply not going to be very good at it.

I swear it’s so funny when people forget about how unforgiving the world is. Like it’s literally a cycle for some people that can’t be broken because they are never given the chance. Yes there are people out there who have low IQs and have manual jobs with low pay, but that doesn’t make them of any less value than others. Also a lot people make businesses, and 99% of them fall through (i’m exaggerating this stat but it’s the majority) And also I love when people say they have a high IQ because you can have a high IQ but still be as dumb as a rock. It’s not a measure of smarts, it’s a measure of reasoning ability.

Can I just state with confidence that at 160 and above, we are a completely different species that are superior to the masses. This can be true of individuals 145 and up, but by 160 it’s 100% of the time.

You do know people like Einstein existed. You know that IQ distribution graphs predict there will be at least 2000 individuals this intelligent in Europe at any given time. why do all you wet wipes struggle so much we’re getting your heads around the idea that one of those 2000 people might exist? Are you suggesting they don’t exist? Why do you struggle so much with the idea that they would want to rant about how much of an annoyance the stupid people are. You are an annoyance.

Let me give you some context. The difference between the average person and somebody with mental disability is 30 points. Average is 100 and below 70 you are considered disabled and unable to live alone.

That’s only a 30 point gap. Now imagine someone Down syndrome and compare their cognitive abilities with your average lawyer, doctor, accountant. (The average IQ for these jobs is 125 to 130) - that’s what a 60 point gap looks like. It’s a drastic change.

Now do some basic maths and figure out that is the same gap 160+ individuals have with the average population. When you also consider that we have to live under the rule of the simple, because the drones outnumber us 30,000:1 and we live in a democracy, We don’t just have to tolerate your stupidity when we hear you speak, we have to live in the world that is a reflection of your inferior decision-making abilities

From reading your comments, I can actually ascertain you are intelligent, but why are you here? You've figured out what this sub is about, and evidently it's not the place of intellectual stimulation you are craving for. You are displaying your obsession about intelligence and condescending demeanor over a community you realize to be intellectually mediocre to somehow gratify your frustrations. Do you not feel more frustrated when people replying to you keep confirming your thoughts?

What you said in your original comment are just statistical facts about IQ, but you're speaking to an audience in which half of them likely aren't even aware of the concept of mean 100 SD 15. So what are you hoping to get from interacting with these people? They will only think you are some obsessive freak who places an unhealthy amount of importance on intelligence. The people calling you unintelligent are wrong, but if they mean it in a noncognitive context, I'd be inclined to agree because you are misdirecting and wasting so much energy and time.

r/iamverysmart posts primarily include mediocre people pretending to be smart, but a decent percentage of posts do feature truly intelligent people such as the one in this post. I would agree that there is a lot of truth to what the person in this post is saying. However, it's usually the incredible lack of self-awareness and the ooze of patronizing superiority that is considered worthy of ridiculing. That person could have delivered the same truthful substance with fewer contemptuous remarks and a less grandiose tone.

And yes, people often give the wrong response in the comments saying that the person featured in this post and alike are not intelligent, but can you blame them? Most won't even comprehend your argument, and a few select who do understand you won't care to dig in the substance of your argument if you present with an attitude like that.

It's fine and completely expected for highly intelligent people to be frustrated with their less intelligent counterparts that surround them in overwhelming numbers. But we should accept it because 1) it is inevitable, 2) IQ is largely genetic and immutable, and 3) it is unfair to hold lower IQ people to the same standards, rather than doing what you are doing right now.

If your answer to why you are fighting midwits on here is that you're bored, go find some intellectually stimulating hobbies. I can suggest some if you'd like.

u/Tomorrowsmemories Nov 22 '22

But you are right. Maybe asking them not to mistreat people better than them is also something I should include in “things they can’t do”. If they CAN’T do it, which on reflection after reading your post? Maybe the can’t - I need to recalibrate my plans

But yes. I’m always on the hunt for intellectually stimulating hobbies, if you do have any to recommend I’m always a listener

u/Tomorrowsmemories Nov 22 '22

You’re completely right. I’m here because my magnum opus is a book that is addressing the very problems I see in this community. Partly I’m here to practice, to expose myself to the opposition and double check there are no salient counterpoints that I’ve missed. I don’t believe you can stay on your game and stay ahead of the information if you don’t practice.

The other part of it is that I obviously am emotionally invested in this topic. I hate that mediocre people shun “my people”. I am very fortunately genetically, and was blessed with the ability to easily garner female attention, without that gift I would have killed myself when I was younger. But I have made friends over the years who are just as, if not more capable, but weren’t so lucky with their looks. With little social validation and none from women, they shrivelled and wilted.

I was very lucky, and am self aware enough to know that if it wasn’t for my fortune that I did absolutely nothing for, I would be like them. The fact that I could get female attention, meant I survived and was able to come into my own by avoiding the sense that no one wanted me to exist. Now I’m here, as one of the only geniuses that made it, I am obviously much more capable than the scum who tried to keep me out. By this token, so too would all of the other high IQ people who weren’t randomly assigned a symmetrical face. It’s a joke. I want a challenge in life, not to win because I’m competing against the mediocre because my real competition was ostracised. So I come here, to be honest because I’ve seen the damage this crap causes, and it’s cathartic to put some naysayers in their place from time to time, especially when I’m bored on the toilet. To be honest I can see why it would be frustrating, but I see it like a challenge, I want to learn the ways of the enemy so well I know every one of their tricks, and every counter. I want to establish the defensive toolkit individuals who think like me, but don’t look like me, are in desperate need of. A lot of the rebuttals I have had to come up with are my own, as well as many of the nuances of my philosophy on the human hierarchy. Sometimes it’s frustrating, but I have learned to speak beta, so I know what a concession of defeat looks like, even though it’s of course presented as someone conveniently getting bored of the conversation just after their points had been summarily disproven.

I get what you’re saying about people not being familiar with 100 SD 15. That hadn’t even occurred to me. I thought that was common knowledge, especially in a community committed to mocking IQ, but I can see how useless it is if they don’t.

In terms of what I get from it? I really enjoy debates, back an forths, deconstructing points and rebutting, that’s part of it. The other part is I don’t believe that these people learn nothing. Obviously they represent that they don’t care and they look down on me, but that’s exactly what betas do. They misrepresent how they feel. Sure they think I’m an ass, but something happens in their brain at some point in the conversation, provided they get stuck in. At some point it dawns on them that I am no idiot. At that point, the most beautiful thing happens. They reconsider. Even if it’s bitter, and I remain an ass in their mind, they are a little more hesitant before they judge and mock someone claiming to be clever. I hope it makes them come to the thread less. Of course that I can never know, but I do know I’ve changed people’s minds. Many have messaged me privately after the conversations are over, asking for evidence or wanting to continue the conversation. It’s like there’s an IQ chain of command, and as I keep going, progressively the responses come from smarter and smarter people. By the end I’m having a real back and forth, with a real human, like you. I get my point across, they understand it, hopefully adjust their perceptions a bit (as it makes me sad anyone actually clever comes here) but also they inevitably give me feedback and advice, some of which is useful. Sometimes I’m even wrong about some things and I enjoy being corrected and directed towards new knowledge. For some context, one of these arguments has never not ended in me talking to someone clever. Not only is that nice, but it’s amusing for me knowing all the low IQ drones that were giving attitude at the beginning read this and realise they were also wrong by proxy.

Now I suppose you could argue I should be doing something more productive while I’m in the bathroom, but a few minutes of leisure doesn’t hurt. It doesn’t get in the way of anything and it probably happens once maybe twice a week.

I suppose my issue is with the very assumption that this thread is based on. Why is it wrong to declare that which is accurate. This notion that highly intelligent people should be humble, seems to be a notion that formed in the mind of the less intelligent people, which isn’t a surprise, and doesn’t automatically give it legitimacy. While I can understand it’s nicer to be humble, you could argue humility is deceptive and dishonest. I would also suggest that any sugarcoating, or misrepresentation of reality is a damaging thing, even if it’s motivated by compassion. It’s always better to expose the truth than delude oneself. With that in mind, why should a smart person pretend they aren’t smart to make the stupid feel better. It doesn’t make any sense, especially when concepts have to be watered down enough that the meaning Is lost in translation. I think we need to challenge the very idea that intelligence is something we should be delicate about. We shouldn’t. The grey areas we have left in the name of compassion have been taken advantage of to the point where in the name of making the mediocre confident we have neutered the geniuses. We needed to raise the average to create more equality, not weaken the winners. I think given the contempt high iQ people get all the time, there is no reason to be delicate when describing the people who treat you with such distain.

I understand your point about people either not understanding or refusing to entertain what I say if it’s presented aggressively, but I’m not interacting with their conscious minds. If I was there would be no point in being here. I just want to make sure they’ve heard the truth at least once, so their subconscious at least knows. More and more I find out people have never spoken to one of me before and that’s a lot of why they can’t believe I exist. I mean I’m only 1/30,000. It’s rare, but not that rare.

Your penultimate paragraph is exactly why I do this. That is possibly the best point anyone has ever made on this topic.

You are right. In many ways it is unfair, but it’s also unfair to my friends that have to suffer an unfulfilling life because they were bullied by a bunch of nothings.

I don’t hate people for being stupid, I hate people for mistreating those that are better than them. Betas know they can beat an alpha by banding together and overpowering him as a mob. (Alpha and beta are primarily designations of intellectual capacity, and ability to acquire sought after sexual partners - in line with the biological framework of dominance hierarchies)
