Limiting people from public speaking based on IQ doesn't sound right (censorship). However, if you meant to suggest that politicians (people who represent others) should be vetted based on IQ, I would suggest we include vetting for empathy, various personality disorders, etc. If astronauts have to be healthy to perform their job, so should our representatives.

Shaman Music Channel I understand that this is aimed at protecting the people from being manipulated into feuds and war by destructive individuals. In principle, this could be useful but we always have to consider the big picture - are there any downsides to this? A system where specific personality traits are used to discredit people might backfire and create the opposite effect. For example, what if people with low IQ want a leader with low IQ, etc. This could result in IQ wars:)

Also, people with all sorts of traits that would be seen in a bad light have the potential to bring something amazing to the world. History is full of breakthroughs that came from unexpected minds. The same is true for people who seem perfectly functional - then one day something happens and they go on a killing spree.

I propose another solution. This video describes the root of the problem https://youtu.be/7LqaotiGWjQ and this project aims to solve it: https://www.civilizationresearchinstitute.org/our-projects

Maybe a mandatory psychological evalluation as a prerequisite to be elected into any public office. Check the candidate's empathy and sincerity before they are eligible to be voted for.
