Apart from the other excellent reasons. It is optional and beneficial so it will cost money. That means you are going to have some that will participate and some that won't and that will at least loosely be tied to existing intelligence between the couple. You aren't going to have zero dumb people after this. You will have a generally dumb group maintaining their birth rates. Some super rich folks who will have more intelligent kids at the same rate. Some middle income folks who will have fewer kids who are more intelligent.

I'm sure it is. I support a customer every few years at a 4 day convention there. Last time they bought a brand new dyson vaccuum for less than the price of the cleaning crew vaccuuming the booth at night. Another vendor bought a full set of very nice folding chairs for their booth for the price of chair rental. The service prices are just absurd.

And that is solved by airgapping my thermostat either by removing its wifi settings or setting up a local wifi network. I've got a spare router sitting in a box and I don't even have any connected devices to need a dedicated network. I'm just not seeing any reason that any effort at malice here wouldn't be exponentially more time consuming that what it would take to thwart it.
