Intelligence is just energy. If your society has a stupid point of view the more intelligent your society is the more stupid your society will become. Intelligence may very well be blind.
Intelligence quotient is not a trait, it is a resource for much of human activity. This is why there is no correlation between intelligence and things like conscientiousness or consciousness. The more you raise this intelligence in your community, virtuousness and vices will grow equally. Therefore, any efforts you take in promoting education must never take place until your children are taught the virtues needed to perform the duties and responsibilities that come with being a member of a community.
… therefore all human intelligence can be summarized simply as the capacity to perceive patterns, be they absorbed through the sense of sight, hearing, touch, olfactory, taste, language, memory and all the varied senses and states of mind.
