Salter-Woodley Podcast

Troubling dysgenic decline.

This video is a very interesting podcast from 2016 between Drs. Salter and Woodley concerning the real trends in changing population IQ.  While IQ is not a topic I often discuss, it is important, and is a topic that is tainted by pseudoscience from both the Left as well as the Right.  I do not know much about Woodley, but he sounds like a solid and honest academic from this podcast, so let’s consider some major points (as an aside – I wish more such excellent podcasts like this would be made by Salter).

First, we are in the midst of a troubling dysgenic decline in real IQ – perhaps as much as approximately one IQ point per decade.

Second, it is interesting that some of the more “culture-loaded” IQ tests are the most heritable, suggesting gene-culture ties.

Third, the Flynn effect mantra of the Left is put into its proper perspective, as something not measuring raw heritable g-loaded IQ, and in fact obscuring the reality of a dysgenic loss of IQ that is causing a relative decline in the production of geniuses, scientific/technical innovations, and important cultural artifacts.

Fourth, allegedly “fair” IQ tests like Raven’s are not so “fair” at all, and not as g-loaded as presumed. Although not mentioned in this podcast, if Raven’s is not “fair” do you suppose PISA test scores are?  The pseudoscience is, as mentioned above, from the Right as well as the Left.

Fifth, although I’m not much interested in sports, the fact that reaction times have been slowing over the past century provides food for thought – thought indirectly linked to racial activism since the “bread and circuses” masses love sports, and thus sports, as part of mass pop culture, affects the race-culture problem.

I note there is a rough correlation between sociopolitical views and ideas about athletic performance over time.  Those on the Left are more prone to “overrate the present” and lionize (mostly Colored) modern athletes as far superior to the (mostly White) athletes of the past. Those on the Right are less likely to casually dismiss the “traditional sports heroes” of the past.

Now, if reaction times are really slowing, then what can we say about athletic performance in sports in which reaction time is important – hitting a baseball for example (or boxing or hockey)? It puts into question leftist assumptions rooted in jock sniffing the Negro athlete. The components of performance related to reaction time – fundamental for some sports – would seem to be declining, not improving, over time.

Indeed, reaction times differ by race, with Negroes being the slowest, which again makes one question whether the Negro athlete of today is superior to the White athlete of the past (and, of course, intra-racial White-White cross-era comparisons of declining reaction time question leftist assumptions about sports as well).  One can make counter-arguments that athletes do not represent the overall population, and that Victorian England was one specific sample, and that of course other factors than reaction time are important in athletic performance, etc. but still, the idea is provocative.  The Caste Football pro-White sports types probably need to look into the implications of declining reaction times in making cross-era sports comparisons, implications favorable to a narrative of a Golden Age of White American sports.

In any case, getting back to the main topic, the loss of IQ, coupled with the worsening racial situation (increases in the population of the dumbest races) means that dark (in all meanings of that word) times are ahead for humanity, unless these trends can be arrested and then reversed.


Silk Road News: Misleading Asian IQ

More Asian stupidity.

While Negroes are uneven, I’ve found that I’ve always been professionally disappointed with Asians outside of a classroom environment – barring one exception.  By Asians, this means the whole of the Far East, from Korea down to Laos and Cambodia, though I’ve never really worked with Japanese. One colleague of mine who had lived for years in Asia insisted to me that Asians make a good impression for about two months and then they fall apart professionally.  Even after I knew this fact, I still once nearly got marooned in Newark, New Jersey on a business trip because an Asian I was stuck working with had run into [h]is two month use-by-date and absconded in a surprising, unprofessional way.

I know that Asian societies appear to be prosperous and “high IQ,” but historically they do tend to fall apart.  South Vietnam collapsed after the Americans left them to their own devices very quickly 1975.  China has gone from order to anarchy several times in the 20th Century and there was a severe famine in 1961.  North Korea is Korean culture without the Americans. Cambodia is a wreck.

Censoring Winne-the-Pooh Is over-inflated Asian self-esteem their “Achilles heel?”

Mind-numbing hatred of Asians toward Whites – why should academia be any different?\

Asians displacing Whites – Silkers celebrate.  All according to plan!

More stereotypes proved correct: the anti-White Asian and the ugly, mannish lesbian.

Another law-abiding Asian cogelite.

Spencer Is Absolutely Right: 8/4/17

Against the Asian invasion.

Listen here.

I agree.  Trump’s heart is in the right place on this (rare, I know), but his brains (what little he has) are not.  We don’t need “cognitive elitists.”  We don’t need any (non-European) immigrants at all. ZERO. I agree: better dumb peons than immigrants who will be at the top of the human energy pyramid, elites displacing Whites from professional/technical positions, aliens who will become the “new Jews” using their high IQs to manipulate American politics to their own selfish racial benefit.  We don’t need to wreck the middle class, and Trump doesn’t need to placate groups that didn’t vote for him.  And despite the sweaty fantasies of my detractors, I also agree with Spencer that the 1924 Reed-Johnson Act was a good thing (albeit flawed in that it didn’t optimally control immigration from the Western hemisphere).  I think Spencer is wrong in assuming the “massaged” IQ data from China, reflecting coastal elites, is reflective of the nation as a whole, including the masses of teeming peasants, but that’s a minor point, likely due to the influence on him of the Alt Wrong that he so stupidly admires.  But we must give Spencer credit for at least eschewing HBD on the political (if not intellectual) level, and rejecting “high IQ” immigration.

As I’ve said before, I see Spencer’s ultimate direction as electoral politics, once he matures and dumps the Beavis-and-Butthead Alt Right.  And, no, I do not think that, eventually, his “tainted past” of “Hailgate” and other things will matter in a future in which desperate Whites are increasingly attracted to more explicitly pro-White right-wing populism, as long as the appropriate congressional district is chosen for a political run.

Trump and Sessions as beta race cucks.

As the Trump administration becomes more and more explicitly Jewish, it becomes more pro-Asian. After all, Silk Road White nationalism is another manifestation of Jewish hijacking of White interests. And the beta race cucks Trump and Sessions grovel to racial groups who didn’t vote for Trump and certainly are no fans of Sessions.  Once again Trump is exposed as a fraud, a “God Emperor” with feet of clay, a cucking loser, an anti-White degenerate.

Why It Won’t Work

Realism about the economic future.

One often reads smug economists and other “experts” who mock Trump’s idea (real or phony) of bringing back manufacturing jobs to America, and the overall wish of Trump supporters to “turn the clock back” against the “modern global knowledge economy.”

Putting aside all of our ideological biases against these elitist criticisms, let’s look closer at their practical argument: since the economic changes of America (globalism, a “knowledge-based” economy, creation and manipulation of ideas and information rather than of material goods) are inevitable and irreversible, those people not yet adjusted to this new economy must “adjust and be trained.”  In other words, all the unemployed factory workers and other blue collar workers must be re-educated and re-trained to become just like the elitists making such suggestions.

I trust that reasonable and reality-based rational people understand the absurdity of such recommendations.  But let’s spell it out for the sake of completeness; I’ll restrict myself to the two most obvious and major points.

First, given the normal distribution of intelligence and other cognitive and behavioral abilities and characteristics (including the mental flexibility to radically change professions) – and let’s not even get into the large racial differences in those metrics – it is unrealistic in the extreme to expect “re-education” and “re-training” to work for large sections of the American population. A significant portion of the American population simply do not have the intelligence and ability to adjust to the new global/knowledge economy.  And even if some of these people have – or had – the raw intelligence for such adjustments, many are simply too old and mentally inflexible.  And even if these people were capable of being educated to become high-powered information-based white collar professionals – who is going to pay for their education?  Who is going to pay for supporting these people and their families during the re-training period?  And who is going to hire retrained middle-aged red state blue collar workers as opposed to young college graduates and the constant influx of “high-skilled” immigrants?

So, no, that 55 year old unemployed coal miner from West Virginia is not going to become a software engineer, and even if he did, no one is going to hire him compared to a diseased 25 year old H-1B brownster from India.

Let’s be realistic.  Only an outrageous denial of human nature, and a denial of a realistic appraisal of human ability, can lead to ridiculous recommendations that economic upheaval can be avoided by transforming the entire left side of the Bell Curve into budding computer scientists, economists, and rocket engineers. It’s an impossible dream, and those who make such suggestions are maliciously mendacious.

Second, even if the impossible came true and all these people, the majority of the American population, were able to become white collar globalist professionals, there simply are not enough jobs available for all these people. How many computer scientists, economists, and rocket engineers do we need?  100 million of them? 200 million?

Putting aside the fact that “we” are importing “high-skilled” immigrants to compete with our existing native intellectual elites, the fact is that artificial intelligence automation will do to white collar jobs what robotic automation has been, and is, doing to blue collar jobs. There are not enough of these global/knowledge-based jobs now, and there will be fewer and fewer of such jobs in the decades to come.  So, we will try to shove a square peg in a round hole and train the masses for jobs that would not be available to them today and will not be available for anyone in the future?

In the short term, revolutionary upheaval can be avoided by instituting social credit/citizens dividend ideas – open payments to citizens – based on the nation’s productivity (productivity of the real educated elites and of automation) coupled to immigration restriction (one cannot combine social credit with open borders without bankrupting even a productive new economy).

In the long term, revolutionary upheaval is probably unavoidable.  While the far left of the Bell Curve will take the social credit, lounge around, and reproduce in Idiocracy fashion (Should such payments be tied to limiting reproduction of the less fit?  Yes, but is that realistic when the less fit a key political constituency? Or is democracy doomed in the new economy?), and the far right (no pun intended) of the Bell Curve may be actually involved in real work or at least occupy themselves with intellectual hobbies and pursuits, the grand middle of the population will be left adrift with no purpose and nothing to do.  They will form a revolutionary mass of disaffected people, waiting for direction, waiting for purpose, and waiting for action.

Troubles lie ahead.  Will we be able to take advantage of them?

The relevance of all of this to ethnic genetic interests should be obvious to those on Bell Curve’s right side.

More Silk Road News, 3/30/17

More Asian perfidy.

Derbyshire of all people points out anti-White hate-filled Asiatic judges,.

Remember the EGI Notes paradigm: The existential meaning of Asians is hatred of Whites.

Note: There are two problems with taking Asian IQ scores at face value. First, the issue of cheating – they cheat on everything else, all sorts of standardized tests, so one must be careful.  Second, and likely more important, is whether the test scores represent the broad population. The Chinese, for example, tend to report selected test scores – so the question remains: is the high, high, high Chinese IQ reflecting the entire population, including all those peasants in the rice fields, or does it predominantly reflect urban elites in Beijing, Shanghai, and other major urban areas?  The same applies to other East Asian nations as well.

Anyone remember Monolid magazine, that anti-White Asian hate fest?

100 megaton nuclear torpedo?  Aim it at the Asian threat, my Russian brothers, aim at the Yellow Peril.

Richard Nixon apparently took the “opening to China” idea a bit too literally. Was Tricky Dick the original Silk Roader?

Future border guards of the West pictured here.

The Silkers should be happy: New Zealand in the jaws of the dragon.  White lands being conquered by the Yellow Peril.

Blue Collar and Strom

Two items.

First, we have this retarded stupidity

One reads this frequently: the “solution” to outsourcing, automation, etc. is “education and training.” This fails for a number of reasons, particularly the following three:

1. Not everyone can be trained for professional or other advanced positions, the occasional success story (survivor bias) notwithstanding.  There’s a bell curve for intelligence, and, let us be honest, that curve for folks in manufacturing is shifted to the left compared to that for the professions.  A significant fraction of blue collar folks simply cannot be trained to be effective, competitive white collar workers.  That’s not to say they are bad people, it is just they do not have the mental firepower.  So, what?  We either write them off, give them a “citizen’s dividend” income, have them all on welfare, or we try to save their jobs to the extent possible or find work for them at an equivalent level.

2. Guess what – those professional white collar jobs are being outsourced as well, or people (IT, for example) find themselves replaced by immigrant Asian coolie “cognitive elitist” labor. So, will we “train and educate” Americans so that they can “train and educate” their Asian replacements?

3. Automation may affect white collar jobs as well.  That “citizen’s dividend” is looking better and better.

Second, while I agree with Strom’s criticisms of WN delusions about Touchback Trump, I do not buy his solution – the National Alliance, a “brand” whose time I think has passed.  In particular, the NA will continue to have problems, I believe, as long as they hold onto, and double down on, the legacy of Pierce. Problem is, lots of folks in Der Movement – never mind the “normies” – have serious problems with that legacy. The Alt Right considers Pierce to be the old-fashioned past, the Alt Wrong rejects Pierce’s anti-Semitism and his lack of love for Asian “cognitive elitists,” the New Right rejects Pierce’s “Old Right” genocidal extremism, the Pan-European faction and the White ethnics distrust Pierce because of his Nordicism and hypocrisy (and perhaps Nordicists distrust Pierce because he was hypocritical, rather than forthright, about his Nordicism).  If Strom is going to embrace the Pierce legacy, then this has to be addressed.  Yes, we  can ignore the Alt Wrong, but the other factions have some legitimate critiques.
