    Are Americans Less Educated Than Europeans?


    Are Germanic Americans, on average, less intelligent or educated than Germanic Europeans?

    If they are, doesn't this jar with the fact that the United States produces per capita more science Nobel Prize winners than any other country in the world but Germany? Why is the U.S. leading in many modern technological fields such as genetics, computer and information science, the digital entertainment industry and military weapon technology (which always has been a precursor for civil applications) -- or isn't it?

    Is the American education system failing? If yes, what consequences will it have? Or is it merely separating the wheat from the chaff? Is it actually important in our times that the majority of the population is educated? Was it ever important? Still in the renaissance, only a small minority could even read after all....

    Many Europeans find it funny if Americans don't know what the capital of Croatia is or if they can't find Lithuania on the map ... well, ask the average European what the capital of South Dakota is and to point to Washington state on a map -- and they'll pull a long face, too. Aren't we applying double standards?
    This is a placeholder for a signature.

    The true thinkers and movers in any society have always broken away from the "education" provided by the state and done their own thing.
    Based on population, you will find a proportionately equal amount of geniuses in any Germanic country.

    Those extremely expensive degrees they pass out to college graduates only give the sad impression that they have purchased all the intelligence they will ever need.
    Sadly, for most of them, this is actually true.
    It is laughable to even consider that the education they provide has any merit whatsoever.
    A college degree only means you have toed the line and have prepared for yourself a life of subservience.
    It is the same in all Germanic countries.

    The reason America seems to stand out above the rest as being particularly stupid is because it is the most hated country in the world.
    It is only natural that other hateful, or envious countries will use their media machines to exaggerate its deficiencies and then expect the rest of the world to believe it.

    You will find just as many "stupid" Germans as you will Germanic-Americans.

    i think levels of education are based a lot on person to person. in the new england areas there is typically a higher intelligence gap than say harlem and the southern regions with all the minorities. in europe i find a LOT of dumb people too in my travels. there will be uneducated individuals everywhere.

    I dont think a Country and a State is a feasible comparison, infact it is quite laughable.

    Why is the U.S. leading in many modern technological fields such as genetics, computer and information science, the digital entertainment industry and military weapon technology (which always has been a precursor for civil applications)
    From what I have seen they just expand on existing technology rather than invent new technology.

    Do please enlighten us as to why you think that the comparison is laughable.

    Please provide numerous examples of this.

    I do not but that does not make my point invalid. In terms of magnitude, one is worth much less than the other, the worth in the form of a unique language and culture in comparison to a state with no significant impact on its host country.

    Please provide numerous examples of this.
    No, it is self evident through simply looking at the recent advances in technology.

    Are you suggesting that each individual state has had a negligible influence on our nation's technological and cultural heritage?

    Did not Europe start out at one time as little states? Besides, they have had quite a few centuries head start.

    But, when you compare what Germanic-America has achieved since 1776 with other Germanic countries you will find a relatively equal output of inventions and ideas.

    Germanics will thrive no matter where they go.

    The impact that Germanic-Americans have made on this world is no less important than Germanic-Europeans.
    You will find quality Germanic inventors from the corn fields of Nebraska just as easily as you will from Berlin.

    No, it is self evident through simply looking at the recent advances in technology.
    Please provide examples.

    Most Americans are idiots, and most Europeans are idiots. Intelligent people within any nation are the exception. I think Europeans are more sensitive to American stupidity because it's of a different type to our own. And Americans are more sensitive to uniquely European stupidities than their own for the same reason. So, as with most things, both sides laugh at each other, not realising that they're both dumbasses.

    The big bulk of them are but Europeans are being dragged down to their level thanks to the Judeo-American cultural and consumerist influences, with the ever increasing spread of Judeo-American globalism unto Europe we will all be equal soon.

    It never stops with you, Rassenhygieniker
    I request that you provide evidence that Germanic-Europeans are smarter than Germanic-Americans.
    (The jewish-invented IQ test is not enough evidence to be valid.)
    Besides, the judeo culture already had its claws into Europe long before it did America.
