But... we're getting more intelligent every generation. We just have way, WAY more advanced social media then we used to, so it seems like people do stupid stuff more often, when in reality, people have always done stupid stuff.

If you don't believe me, ask an elderly person for help with your math. They probably didn't even know that letters could be a part of math.

At least from my experience rich people don't have many kids. And, rich people are usually smart. Whereas the poorer people I know have ~2-4 kids and aren't as intelligent.
As for asking an old person about algebra who would remember highschool math that you don't use daily after 50 years?
IMO: average IQ will drop gradually, but we will have a few geniuses still.
