I have just posted some 'taster' excerpts and the Contents page from my forthcoming book with Ed Dutton - The Genius Famine: Why we need geniuses, Why they’re dying out, and Why we must rescue them. University of Buckingham Press, 2015 (in the press).
Modern people don't recognize a genius any more than they recognize an idiot.
Thus it could be stated that there is no difference between them.
It's not that they are dying out, as much as that there is no longer the sensory apparatus, the discernment, the honesty, to see them as such.
Victims, as we all are, to the steamroller of 'equality'.
