Autism, Spengler, Lewontin, Der Movement, and Moobs

In der news.

First, about autism, emphasis added:

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) manifests as alterations in complex human behaviors including social communication and stereotypies. In addition to genetic risks, the gut microbiome differs between typically developing (TD) and ASD individuals, though it remains unclear whether the microbiome contributes to symptoms. We transplanted gut microbiota from human donors with ASD or TD controls into germ-free mice and reveal that colonization with ASD microbiota is sufficient to induce hallmark autistic behaviors. The brains of mice colonized with ASD microbiota display alternative splicing of ASD-relevant genes. Microbiome and metabolome profiles of mice harboring human microbiota predict that specific bacterial taxa and their metabolites modulate ASD behaviors. Indeed, treatment of an ASD mouse model with candidate microbial metabolites improves behavioral abnormalities and modulates neuronal excitability in the brain. We propose that the gut microbiota regulates behaviors in mice via production of neuroactive metabolites, suggesting that gut-brain connections contribute to the pathophysiology of ASD.

So, instead of giving mice MMR vaccinations to induce autism, the “gut microbiota” of autistic humans was sufficient to do the job, including alterations of “alternative splicing of ASD-relevant genes” in the mouse brains.

What could affect the “gut microbiota?”  There’s the initial colonization during gestation, birth, and early years of life. There is diet. And there is antibiotic use.  Conspicuously missing from that list are the “Big Pharma” vaccines injected by dastardly “Jew doctors.” But alas, the festering microbial environment of “Mama,” the lousy diets, and those tasty pink-colored antibiotic spoonfuls (given liberally, even for viral infections against which they are useless) are not “scary needles,” so it’s all A-OK!  After all, those scary injections are violating our bodily integrity and contaminating our precious bodily fluids, so we can’t have that!  Just take dem dere pills and spoonfuls, eat dat dere junk food, and it’ll all be fine!  Also, make sure to expose your child’s amygdala to bizarre NEC phenotypes as well.  What could go wrong?

Lewontin’s Fallacy and “genetic variation within vs. between” mentioned here.  Of course, several months ago, EGI Notes posted a comprehensive refutation of Lewontin, demonstrating, using genetic data and calculations, that ANY human group, no matter how randomly chosen, will always exhibit more genetic variation within than between.  Indeed, random groupings of Whites and Blacks mixed together will also demonstrate the same pattern – conclusively showing that the pattern is due to random distribution of genetic variation among all humans, with no relevance to racial classification whatsoever.  A comparison of human racial Fst to that of dog breeds was also discussed.

That post got ZERO attention from Der Movement; after all, the Quota Queens have circled the wagons and have established a cordon sanitaire around the Sallis Groupuscule, lest I threaten their tin cup panhandling and their by-birthright-affirmative-action-positions.

Comment about Spengler from Counter-Currents:

Spengler deserves, but does not receive, more criticism from rightist sources. As has been mentioned in other posts two other philosophers of history, Piritim Sorokin and Lawrence Brown have both ably demonstrated the inaccuracy and danger in using biological metaphors to describe the development of a culture.
Although Spengler was a teacher of mathematics his literary style is not precise or particularly clear, he writes more as a poet than as a scientist. A scientist with desire to explain history should use his training to identify the causes for a culture taking a particular development path, and not ascribe that path to a destiny that is chosen for it. Such a description is too mystical. In some ways Spengler’s outlook has parallels with his near contemporary Hans Driesch and his thoughts related to biological determinism as observed in embryos.
We need to distance ourselves from Spengler’s brand of determinism. History is open-ended, and it is imperative that we change roads at the next off-ramp, if one isn’t in sight then prepare for some off road driving.

Revilo Oliver, many years ago, critiqued Spengler; I have done so more recently.  Of course, my critique was ignored by Der Movement as well.  Surprise!

Spencer is right.  But he’s not calling out the appropriate people.  David French?  Pshaw!  As Derb would say.  Let’s see. I can think of two prominent racialist types who have, in recent months, publicly stated that we are winning and that our victory is inevitable.  One of these is someone Spencer despises (and vice versa). Then we had this:

Jared Taylor’s short answer to “why we are winning” was “because we’re right and our opponents are wrong.”

Ball in your court, Mr. Spencer.

Der Movement likes to talk about “soyboys,” but based on recent findings, we had better talk about “beer bros” instead.  Is this the reason why the Type I Nutzis are so inept?  Is it that all of the “Sieg Heil and pass the beer” crowd are drenched in estrogen?  Adjust those bra straps, fellas!

Buchanan, Autism, and Counter-Currents

In der news.

Dumb Buchanan practically ignores that the Greens are to the far left on migration and have a radical political agenda independent of the “environment.”  And they outperformed the fading AfD in Germany.

Speaking of Germans:

“Whoever speaks of Europe is wrong,” said Bismarck. Europe is but “a geographical expression.”

Yes, indeed, because a militaristic Kraut said it, it must be true.  Then:

Identity politics, people identifying themselves by their ethnicity, nationality, race, culture and faith, appears to be the world’s future.

Race?  Individual European ethnic groups are not a “race,” you stupid bastard Buchanan.  If you are going to talk about “race” and a Western culture, then that is Europe, which is not merely “a geographical expression.” Another retarded ethnonationalist, and a Catholic conservative reactionary as well.

Well, well, well…maybe autism is not about those “scary needles” injecting children with “Big Pharma products,” after all. Perhaps autism is due to a genetic predisposition, possibly triggered by environmental factors – and there is NO evidence that vaccines are among such factors. Bizarre-looking NECs and other racially intermediate non-European phenotypes may indeed be such factors instead.

But, I suppose it’s easier to blame vaccination than to blame one’s own genes – or in some cases, the genes of one’s mentally unstable, neurotic ex-wife – or to dig deeper into the topic, and consider that perhaps it was not the MMR vaccine that gave your child autism, but the hideous appearance of that NEC doctor administering the vaccine.

Welcome to Trump’s America.

The worst writer in the history of Counter-Currents is at it again.  Don’t work!  Be a parasite!  Be downwardly mobile!  I mean, that’s a perfect inversion of the advice I give here.  But, alas, there’s a flaw in the argument from the Tin Cup perspective, as a commentator realizes; see below.

First, a laughable bit from the actual post.

Any attempts to get a Männerbund going will be met with snickers of “lol, fags.” Funny how similar gangs formed by blacks and other troglodytes will never get accused of fomenting homosexualism, innit? 

Funny how so many “rightists” who try to get a “Mannerbund” going are actually overt, in-your-face homosexuals, innit?  Perhaps O’Meara and Donovan can shed some light on the topic?

And to the comments:

we take a massive sledgehammer to pretty lies

The corpse of Chateau Heartiste isn’t even cold yet, and you’re already stealing his lines.

With the legacy of Andrew Hamilton, plagiarism and Counter-Currents go together like peanut butter and jelly.

This guy gets it.

Yes, we must have Whites being handout slaves to a Chinaman.

A commentator gets it partly right:

To encourage people not to strive for financial security is self-destructive. Staying a broke Doomer for your entire life is not something to be proud of, no matter how much you can justify it with historical facts about the caste system, or philosophical arguments from Guenon or Evola. 

Traditionalism!

We live, sadly, in a world that’s run by the merchant class. They have completely restructured Western civilization to serve the ends of that class and to force people to play by the merchant class’s rules. This system does not appear ready to collapse in the near future…

What?  Der Tag is not around the corner?

…so for those of you who think you will be going on warrior raids for sex slaves and serfs within the next 10 years, you are going to be sorely disappointed.

Type I’s sulk.

As much as we may hate it, we White men (and women) need jobs. We need jobs that afford us the chance to pay for living expenses and accumulate capital. That capital can then be funneled into our Movement…

Ah, there’s the rub, isn’t it?  Who’s going to shell out the “D’Nations?”  Where’s Greg going to get the shekels to travel to Europe or to go to movies so he can write reviews for Unz? Nose to the grindstone, goys, your “leaders” need their moolah.  Who’s gonna pay for this?

EU Travel Advice and Other News

Advice and news.

This applies to Der Movement more than it does to conservatives.

But we should all support the Yang Gang, right? Gee, the Quota Queens have been really quiet about Yang recently.  Did they realize that they were making fools of themselves?

One possible idea for some Americans to get around travel bans to Europe (I do not have any suggestions for the reverse) is to investigate the possibility of obtaining dual citizenship in an EU nation. There are several mechanisms by which dual citizenship can be obtained and I will assume that the EU cannot ban their own citizens from traveling there.

There are of course certain potential problems/issues with this plan:

1. This option would most likely be available for only a very small fraction of people.

2. This would be something that would be most optimal as a preemptive mechanism, for people who have not yet become overt public activists. Of course, overt public activists can, and should, attempt this, if relevant to their individual cases, but I assume that the EU nations would simply refuse to issue dual citizenship to known “haters.”

3. It is also possible that an EU nation would strip dual citizenship from someone if and when they are identified as a “hater.”  I am not sure what the legal status of such stripping would be, but we know that the System does – or tries to do – anything it wants.

4. You would need to understand all the legal and political implications of dual citizenship.

Well, regardless of the details and the limited nature of this possibility, it is something to at least consider if circumstances allow.

Strom being an ignorant, anti-scientific jackass.

Autism rates are far lower in populations that don’t inject their children with Big Pharma products…

There is no evidence whatsoever linking vaccination (to which Strom undoubtedly refers) to autism. In the midst of a resurgence of measles, to imply otherwise is the height of irresponsibility.  If you are interested in correlations between autism and other factors, why don’t you take a look at the posts about autism at this blog – or look at Bowery’s work on the subject – and you’ll see alternative hypotheses that are far more likely to be correct than the “big scary needles causing problems” hysteria.  In my opinion, it’s more likely that there is a causative relationship (and not just a correlation) between diversity and autism than there is between vaccination and autism. By the way, concerning “Big Pharma products” you may wish to express concern about maintenance medication – where the big money is really made (*) – pushing pills for (in my opinion) imaginary diseases (attention deficit disorder) or for diseases caused by lifestyle choices (statins, metformin, blood pressure medication being used because the average American has the BMI of a black hole singularity).  Never mind putting every other person on “anti-depressants.”  But, alas, pills are not “scary needles” so no need to worry, eh?

*As well as cancer therapeutics that are exorbitantly expensive and prolong lifespan by, at most, months.

Summarizing Some Sallis Theories

Some Sallis theories.

The Sallis solution to the Fermi Paradox:

…racial diversity is the rule among sentient species; thus, highly divergent human racial types find their counterparts in significant racial variability among the alien peoples inhabiting worlds unknown. I further propose a Gresham’s law of universal racial diversity: the more intelligent and productive races of any sentient species will tend to be demographically outcompeted by the more stupid and useless races; the latter, despite their deficiencies for proximate values, are inevitably more fit with respect to the ultimate criterion of survival.  The threshold of technological competence for a detectable alien civilization would no longer obtain as the race or races capable of maintaining that civilization are replaced by those incapable.  Therefore, no such civilizations are detected.

The Sallis theory of autism.  Thus, the race recognition processing software of the amygdala (also involved in threat recognition) of Whites, particularly White children, is capable of easily distinguishing highly distinct racial types – Europeans, sub-Saharan Africans, (pure) Amerindians, and East Asians.  But the post-1965 immigration influx into America (and similar immigration influxes into Europe) has brought into White societies previously rare, more racially intermediate types – South Asians, heavily admixed Latin Americans, Middle/Near Easterners and North Africans. This phenotypically confusing racial diversity “scrambles” the amygdala of susceptible White children, increasing risk for autism.  Hence, the link between diversity and autism and, hence, an explanation for some of the population-autism correlations discovered by James Bowery some years ago.

As regards politics – my “Sallis strategy.”

Xenophobia Is Good Mental Health

There are many legitimate forms of trepidation.

Note that damage to the amygdala can result in an individual unable to recognize dangerous situations, an individual always in trouble, and an individual whose genetic interests are endangered by the inability to actualize prudent and reasonable caution.

The amygdala is also important for race recognition, and I have previously written about my hypothesis on autism, that ties together the various functions of this brain structure into a coherent whole, and which points put the potential dangers of South Asian phenotypes to young White children.

Getting back to the main point here: can we not say that an absence of xenophobia – in other words, typical liberal universalism – is akin to a defect in the amygdala that impairs the recognition of the danger of the racial other?  Isn’t the typical xenophile leftist akin to someone walking around with a damaged brain with a damaged amygdala?  Isn’t racial liberalism than akin to brain damage, and isn’t then xenophobia akin to mental and neurological good health?

Then we get into the question of race-mixing.

Putting aside the issue of casual miscegenation (which is bad enough), let us consider the gross enormity of actually producing children with someone of a different race; let us consider the horror of inter-racial marriage. Of inter-racial family formation: spending your life with, and reproducing with, an alien life form.  What can we see about the amygdala of such a person?  What kind of defect must hey have in their mentality, in their brain circuitry?  Can any such person be trusted?  Why would WNs embrace any individual who “sleeps with the enemy” and who donates their genetic material to produce more of your racial enemies?  Aren’t the ones who embrace such individuals mentally damaged themselves?

The Amygdala, Race, and Autism

An interesting connection.


An increased pattern of brain activity in the amygdalas of adults with autism that may be linked to the social deficits that typically are associated with the disorder. Previous research has shown that abnormal growth patterns in the amygdala are commonly found among young children diagnosed with autism. 


Replicating past research, greater amygdala activity was observed for Black faces than White faces. Furthermore, dark-skinned targets elicited more amygdala activity than light-skinned targets. However, these results were qualified by a significant interaction between race and skin tone, such that amygdala activity was observed at equivalent levels for light- and dark-skinned Black targets, but dark-skinned White targets elicited greater amygdala activity than light-skinned White targets. 


Both race and skin tone affect amygdala activity.  My original South Asian theory of White autism hypothesized that the ‘intermediate” phenotypes of South Asians – Caucasian “(“White”) but with dark skins, and with facial features typically different from that of European Whites – confuses the race recognition “software” of the amygdala in young White children, damaging the amygdala “hardware” as a result, leading to aberrant development and function of that brain structure, finally resulting in autism.

Is this the reason autism rates have increased in White countries with the rise of NEC immigration (1965 Immigration Act in America, and the North African/Middle Eastern flood in Europe)?  And, in general, overall increases in inter-continental population diversity seems associated with increased rates of autism. Maybe East Asian phenotypes are responsible as well? That would seem likely.
