Direct evidence of a large Northern European Roman period martial event and postbattle corpse manipulation
The attempt to push the boundaries toward the Elbe in Northern Germany ended in catastrophic defeat in the Teutoburg Forest in AD 9, with the loss of three legions (4, 5). This historic turning point was followed by continuing Roman punitive campaigns into Germania until AD 16. In the centuries that followed, military relations between the Roman world and the Northern European areas beyond it became a central aspect of political development in Europe. The ferocity of the Germanic tribes and peoples and their extremely violent and ritualized behavior in the aftermath of warfare became a trope in the Roman accounts of their barbaric northern neighbors (6).

Steve Pieczenik - WikiPedia

    Pieczenik was born in Cuba of Jewish parents from Russia and Poland and was raised in France. His father, a doctor from Dombrovicz who studied and worked in Toulouse, France, fled Poland before World War II. His mother, a Russian Jew from Białystok, Poland, fled Europe after many of her family members were killed. The couple met in Portugal, where both had fled ahead of the Nazi invaders. Pieczenik was born in Cuba in 1943. After living in Toulouse for six years, Pieczenik's family migrated to the United States, where they settled in the Harlem area of New York City, New York. Steve Pieczenik was 8 years old when his parents received their entry visa to the United States.

    Pieczenik is a classical pianist and wrote a full-length musical at the age of 8.

    Pieczenik is a Harvard University-trained psychiatrist and has a doctorate in international relations from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). After being drafted, Pieczenik says the navy assigned him to St. Elizabeth's Hospital insane asylum where he oversaw several wards of criminally insane patients.

Another author from that CIA breed (MKULTRA?) ...

    Ellis Washington, since his intellectual apotheosis embracing a Conservative and `America First' worldview (Christmas Day, 1982), has been a Blacklisted Black Intellectual in America--his promising academic career all but destroyed by the Marxist Academy and liberal hegemony through invidious discrimination, nevertheless his Credo--Lex iniusta non est lex--`An unjust law is no law at all,' and his Manifesto chronicles his existential struggles against Liberal Fascism that continues to this day for me, and against hundreds of thousands of other minority academics who reject Globalism, Progressivism, Liberal Fascism, and Socialism Slavery in all of its surreptitious guises.

"One parent described the idea as 'demented' while another commented: 'Until now they've probably never thought about it, and then suddenly this fear is raised, even though the chances of it happening in this country are very small. This isn't America.'"
IQ scores are falling and have been for decades, new study finds
"The causes in IQ increases over time and now the decline is due to environmental factors," said Rogeburg, who believes the change is not due to genetics. "It's not that dumb people are having more kids than smart people, to put it crudely. It's something to do with the environment, because we're seeing the same differences within families," he said.
"How is that even legal? To operate an educational institution on grounds which are seriously toxic."

Or possibly we've stopped spending so much time training kids to do IQ tests.

I dunno about that. I've recently become acquainted with twitter's "story-telling" tools development and marketing.

It actually shows that Norwegian IQ is falling. Maybe that's why Trump wants more immigration from Norway?

Binet-Standford IQ test is pseudo-science.  First, we do not have a consensual scientific definition of "intelligence;" people researching the phenomena use various grades and shades of "I'll Know It When I See It."  Second, the test was developed in the 1920s by racists and eugenicists and - surprise!  Surprise! - "proved" (sic) the darker a person's skin the lower their "intelligence" (sic.)
