The idea that leftists are unable to connect actions and consequences is a very nice and concise way of thinking about the way they operate. It’s hard to believe that it could be that simple (considering they can have high IQ’s), but it makes sense when you realize that IQ tests don’t really measure the ability to solve problems in which the moving parts are scattered across time — all of the parts are neatly laid out at-a-glance across a page. Maybe we should start to think of intelligence more in terms of the ability to solve problems that are defined across space and time, and not just across space. We should start to talk about visual-spacial-temporal intelligence.
Does this explain some of the deficits of the “high-IQ” Asians?
