In a recent discussion on this post Conversations of ABFH's, Cube Angel asks this question:What exactly is the meaning of intelligence and what is the correct usage to that meaning?
Here's my answer:
Human intelligence is the identification of behavior that indicates the mythical resource known as intellect. The claim of this resource is a social construct used to promote propaganda that credits particular races, families, religious ideologies, sophisticated empirical aspirations, and social as well as industrial agendas, at the expense of particular others.
Standardized tests are given to a small minority of people to determine the value of their contribution, the strength of their moral character, and their validity as someone worthy of reproducing. Much of the world's citizens are victimized by how their behavior is evaluated and the presumption of what they lack in relation to such standards.
Standardized tests are a tool to promote and preserve systematic oppression by the minority elite. It is widely taught throughout the world that peace and economic stability are dependent on the very small percentage of the world's population who is capable of making wise decisions continuing to set the rules and distribute their personal brand of justice. Democracy is a threat to this way of describing peace and stability.
Continuing to promote the mythical notion of intelligence is how the abuses within institutions of education as well as in the prisons for the mentally ill are protected.
Neurodiversity is a threat to the politically designed measurement of intellect known as standardized tests. Of course autistics have something to offer society but that claim is only valuable because it describes something different and encourages a broader understanding and acceptance of differences.
Whenever the promotion of people's unique contribution is used as an oppressive political tool in the way that supposed superior intellect often is the unique contributors are burdened with the spoils of their victory. Narrowly defining the value of diversity is nothing more than broadening the group of people considered inferior and encouraging their exclusion.
