I believe there are larger number of Americans these days who think it is cool to be dumb or gullible. Although, they don't think they are. Those people are the ones that believed even one of the many lies the POTUS spit out of his mouth.

Copy & paste is what students need nowadays or they'd be screwed but yet their grandparents graduated just fine without wiki.
Technology is so advanced & soon it'll do all the thinking for us

Look at the ancient monuments of stone which we have neither the ability, nor the know-how to move. Someone in the past was obviously smarter and/or more technically advanced than we are today.

Yes. It was harder to survive in the past. Only the fittest and smartest survived. Don't have to be fit or smart to survive and reproduce today.

As technology increases, human wisdom will decline.

No, but the average person is less educated. If you look at speeches and high school tests a hundred years ago, most people who graduated a four year college would not pass.
