  1. The question is clear and simple, but it is much more difficult to explain. What do you mean by the expression “have intelligence?” Very often people do not see the difference between an intelligent person and a reasonable person. Let's analyze these two concepts and understand what our world would be like in two cases.

    So, a person with a mind is an educated person who strives for knowledge. According to Kant, knowledge can be analytical and synthetic. I will not repeat absolutely all of his critique of pure reason. It is important to understand that with knowledge, a person acts and thinks: analytically, a posteriori and a priori. That is, logically and based on experience. So, coming out of this, we can assume that a person who thinks logically, based on experience, will always be coolly rational in his actions. Knowledge is power! A force that, that in its calculating nature, has nothing more. Actually, it can't offer more than that, a priori. To imagine what would happen, I advise you to read the” City of the Sun ” by Campanella. In short, not all people could survive. The strong would not even allow the weak to be born. The notion of knowledge would not have allowed him to act in any other non-rational way. It would be a different matter if all people were intelligent. Reason is the purest human nature, which is not interested in material goods and the opinions of society. The mind of a person manifests itself in his thoughts, intuition, feelings. Being reasonable doesn't mean being stupid. To be reasonable means to act according to one's conscience, as opposed to the mind, which has no such qualities in itself. But, acting only according to conscience, it is impossible to survive. Such romanticism is simply absurd. Another way to ask this question is, what would happen if all people had both intelligence and intelligence? Considering that neither the first nor the second in its nature is something bad, so I can assume that all people will live happily and without troubles;)

  2. In my opinion, if all people tried (note that they tried, but did not want to) to have reason, then statehood in the form in which we are used to seeing it would become unnecessary (elections: everyone votes for the leading party not because it really does something to improve, but because their vote will not change anything; people complain about the inaction of the state, although they it would be completely excluded from the everyday life of mankind. Also, I think, there would be no need for religions, because usually it is religiosity that hinders progress (remember the Middle Ages). There would be much more new discoveries, perhaps some types of diseases would cease to exist. There would be no such craving for making money, and accordingly, corruption would disappear, because really reasonable people will not salivate all around them at the sight of pieces of paper that have a fixed value. However, there are a lot of factors, you can really list them endlessly. But after all, wanting to improve and trying are two different things? So, I think that humanity is still very far away from this. At this stage of development, many people want to (!), but unfortunately, not everyone is trying.

  3. Chaos. Here's what will happen.

    Knowledge of the 21st century is essentially fractal. There is so much of it that, for example, thousands and thousands of works have been written on the topic “Russian Futurism”(replace it with any problematic question from another field), among which 98% are empty, and only 2% have a lively idea. Moreover, when a person studies a topic, it becomes more and more complex, there are more nuances due to the current information collapse. As a result, most people become depressed and the number of suicides increases.

    Further, you should understand how this whole system of self-education works. There is a quote that flashes from one philosopher to another: “The best slave is the one who thinks that he is not a slave.” The more time a person spends in their cozy, ephemeral, intellectual world, the less time they have for specific and precise actions that change something in this world.

    As a result, there will be a minority of people who will choose to go to power with all possible forces, they will be endowed with the temperance and discipline to reach this level, but in their souls they will lack the concepts of honor, love and loyalty that outweigh any tools obtained as a result of self-education.

  4. The second question can be answered by the movie “Idiocracy”, I recommend you to watch it.If you answer the first one, then I think that nothing good will come of it either)The more you develop and read,the more you doubt everything, oddly enough.There would be more depressed people, perhaps.

    In general, any extreme, as a rule, does not lead to anything good.In everything, after all, measure is important, as Confucius used to say)
