So the thinker wants to make humans less intelligent and thinks that will solve the worlds problems?

Um, it seems like he wants to return us to when life was nasty, brutish, and short, for what, ecological reasons?
Does his wife think that humans will be less likely to have conflict over resources because they are less intelligent?

Certainly technology has its drawbacks, but making people less capable of the kind of thinking that leads to scientific and technological break-throughs seem very short sighted….

Technically stone tools are technology.

And if he thinks it will make people listen to him and follow his orders, he has not been around a lot of people then….
And apparently his wife did not think absolute dictator was part of the plan….
So either it has been a part of his plan the whole time and he hid it from her, or it has been something that has developed since the dark matter hit his brain.

Yeah, that doesn't make much sense. Although I get the vague sense that he wants to blank people's minds so that he can then re-educate them to fit his views.
