Abstract • 200 Words

MacDonald argues that a suite of genetic and cultural adaptations among Jews constitutes a “group evolutionary strategy.” Their supposed genetic adaptations include, most notably, high intelligence, conscientiousness, and ethnocentrism. According to this thesis, several major intellectual and political movements, such as Boasian anthropology, Freudian psychoanalysis, and multiculturalism, were consciously or unconsciously designed by Jews to (a) promote collectivism and group continuity among themselves in Israel and the diaspora and (b) undermine the cohesion of gentile populations, thus increasing the competitive advantage of Jews and weakening organized gentile resistance (i.e., anti-Semitism). By developing and promoting these movements, Jews supposedly played a necessary role in the ascendancy of liberalism and multiculturalism in the West. While not achieving widespread acceptance among evolutionary scientists, this theory has been enormously influential in the burgeoning political movement known as the “alt-right.” Examination of MacDonald’s argument suggests that he relies on systematically misrepresented sources and cherry-picked facts. It is argued here that the evidence favors what is termed the “default hypothesis”: Because of their above-average intelligence and concentration in influential urban areas, Jews in recent history have been overrepresented in all major intellectual and political movements, including conservative movements, that were not overtly anti-Semitic.

Introduction • 400 Words

In the 1990s, Kevin MacDonald wrote a trilogy of books arguing that Judaism is a “group evolutionary strategy,” and the pursuit of this strategy by Jews had far-reaching consequences for world history. In A People That Shall Dwell Alone: Judaism as a Group Evolutionary Strategy (1994)[35]MacDonald, K. (1994). A people that shall dwell alone: Judaism as a group evolutionary strategy. Westport: Praeger.Google Scholar he proposed that, since its inception, Judaism has promoted eugenic practices favoring high intelligence, conscientiousness, and ethnocentrism. As a consequence, the contemporary Jewish population (at least the Ashkenazi population) is marked by a high level of these traits, including a mean IQ of 117 (weighted on verbal intelligence). In Separation and Its Discontents: Toward an Evolutionary Theory of Anti-Semitism (1998b)[37]MacDonald, K. (1998b). Separation and its discontents: Toward an evolutionary theory of anti-Semitism. Westport: Praeger.Google Scholar he argued that anti-Semitism is a reaction by gentiles to competition for resources with less populous but more organized and competent Jewish groups. In The Culture of Critique: An Evolutionary Analysis of Jewish Involvement in Twentieth-Century Intellectual and Political Movements (1998a)[36]MacDonald, K. (1998a). The culture of critique: An evolutionary analysis of Jewish involvement in twentieth-century intellectual and political movements. Westport: Praeger.Google Scholar, he argued that post-Enlightenment Jews who abandoned the religion of Judaism invented a substitute: liberal political, intellectual, and scientific movements with the same social and organizational structure as Judaism, and the same ultimate purpose to promote the evolutionary success of Jews.

According to The Culture of Critique, the most influential of these intellectual movements—Boasian anthropology, Freudian psychoanalysis, and Frankfurt School critical theory—were headed by charismatic and authoritarian leaders (analogous to rabbis), they placed great value on verbal brilliance and internal consistency rather than testability or agreement with external reality (analogous to Talmudic scholarship), and they promoted Jewish group interests at the expense of gentiles. The movements advocated separatism and ethnocentrism for Jews, discouraged ethnic identification among white gentiles (in order to prevent group consciousness among white gentiles that might lead to a sense of competition with Jews and thus anti-Semitism), undermined and destabilized traditional European culture to weaken resistance to Jewish control, “pathologized” anti-Semitism, and denied that Jewish behavior plays a role in anti-Jewish attitudes.

MacDonald argues that Jewish intellectual and political movements were responsible for major trends in twentieth-century scientific, political, and demographic history. These movements, he says, were responsible for the rejection of Darwinian thinking among most mainstream social scientists, and also for large-scale nonwhite immigration to European and European-colonized countries (the United States, Australia, etc.).

Do MacDonald’s Theories Merit Scholarly Attention? • 1,100 Words

MacDonald’s books received some positive and some mixed reviews. Eysenck (1995)[18]Eysenck, H. J. (1995). Review of A people that shall dwell alone, by Kevin MacDonald. Personality and Individual Differences, 19(1), 121.Google Scholar called A People That Shall Dwell Alone “a potentially very important contribution.” Masters (1996)[40]Masters, R. D. (1996). Review of A people that shall dwell alone, by Kevin MacDonald. Politics and the Life Sciences, 15(2), 355–358.CrossRefGoogle Scholar, while enthusiastic about the prospect of analyzing religions as evolutionary strategies, raised concerns about the depth of the author’s familiarity with the history of religion. Figueredo (1999)[20]Figueredo, A. J. (1999). Review of Separation and its discontents, by Kevin MacDonald. Politics and the Life Sciences, 18(1), 136–138.CrossRefGoogle Scholar gave Separatism and Its Discontents a generally positive assessment. In a favorable review of The Culture of Critique, Salter (2000)[51]Salter, F. (2000). Review of The culture of critique, by Kevin MacDonald. Human Ethology Bulletin, 15(3), 16–22.Google Scholar attributed “much of the criticism of MacDonald [to] ignorance of his scholarship and a confounding of political and scientific issues.”

MacDonald’s work on Judaism did not receive widespread attention until the year 2000 when Slate journalist Shulevitz (2000)[55]Shulevitz, J. (2000). Evolutionary psychology’s anti-Semite. Slate. Retrieved (November 21, 2016) from http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/cul....html. used it in an effort to discredit evolutionary psychology. In response to Shulevitz’s challenge that scientists “can’t ignore bad ideas,” Pinker pointed out that they have no choice. It is impossible to do battle against all bad ideas, of which there are a thousand for every good one.

[D]oing battle against some of them is a tacit acknowledgement that those have enough merit to exceed the onerous threshold of attention-worthiness. MacDonald’s ideas, as presented in summaries that would serve as a basis for further examination, do not pass that threshold . . . (Pinker 2000: unpaginated).[44]Pinker, S. (2000). Battling bad ideas. Center for Evolutionary Psychology. Retrieved (February 5, 2017) from http://www.cep.ucsb.edu/slatedialog.html.

Given this fact—that ideas need to meet an “onerous threshold of attention-worthiness”—what justifies giving attention to MacDonald’s theories, published two decades ago and, with just a few exceptions (e.g., favorable treatment in Wilson 2002;[61]Wilson, D. S. (2002). Darwin’s cathedral: Evolution, religion, and the nature of society. Chicago: University of Chicago Press.CrossRefGoogle Scholar criticisms in Atran 2002:230–33)[6]Atran, S. (2002). In gods we trust: The evolutionary landscape of religion. Oxford: Oxford University Press.Google Scholar, largely ignored in mainstream literature?

Even if Pinker was right that MacDonald’s theories did not have enough prima facie merit to warrant attention in 2000, developments in the past 18 years have changed the situation. There are at least three reasons to give MacDonald a hearing.

First, some respected psychologists and evolutionary theorists have reported that they found value in MacDonald’s work. For example, David Sloan Wilson endorsed the ideas in A People That Shall Dwell Alone and strongly criticized the representatives of the Human Behavior and Evolution Society who rejected MacDonald: “Even evolutionary psychologists, who have experienced their share of persecution in academic circles, seem more concerned to protect their own reputations than to defend the work of their colleague” (quoted in Salter 2000).[51]Salter, F. (2000). Review of The culture of critique, by Kevin MacDonald. Human Ethology Bulletin, 15(3), 16–22.Google Scholar Wilson is also thanked in the acknowledgments sections of all three books. And, as noted, Eysenck, Figueredo, Salter, and others have publicly given positive evaluations of some or all of MacDonald’s trilogy. There are also a number of serious scholars who are attracted to MacDonald’s ideas but will not endorse or even comment on them publicly because they fear that they will be perceived as anti-Semitic. This amounts to at least some degree of prima facie evidence that MacDonald’s theory should be considered.

Second, it is an undeniable fact that, in the past few hundred years, Jews have had a disproportionate influence on politics and culture in the Western world, if not the whole world. It might be worthwhile to investigate this phenomenon from a biosocial or evolutionary perspective. So far there have been only a handful of such investigations, including Cochran et al.’s (2005)[10]Cochran, G., Hardy, J., & Harpending, H. C. (2005). Natural history of Ashkenazi intelligence. Journal of Biosocial Science, 38(5), 659–693.CrossRefGoogle Scholar study on the evolution of Jewish intelligence, Dunkel et al.’s (2015)[16]Dunkel, C. S., Reeve, C. L., Woodley of Menie, M. A, & van der Linden, D. (2015). A comparative study of the general factor of personality in Jewish and non-Jewish populations. Personality and Individual Differences, 78, 63–67.CrossRefGoogle Scholar report of high mean levels of the “general factor of personality” among Jews, and, what is by far the most ambitious, MacDonald’s (1994,[35]MacDonald, K. (1994). A people that shall dwell alone: Judaism as a group evolutionary strategy. Westport: Praeger.Google Scholar 1998a,[36]MacDonald, K. (1998a). The culture of critique: An evolutionary analysis of Jewish involvement in twentieth-century intellectual and political movements. Westport: Praeger.Google Scholar 1998b[37]MacDonald, K. (1998b). Separation and its discontents: Toward an evolutionary theory of anti-Semitism. Westport: Praeger.Google Scholar). The idea that Jewish influence resulted, at least in some cases, from their pursuit of a group evolutionary strategy cannot be dismissed a priori. Since MacDonald has defended this theory, he seems to provide a starting point for anyone wishing to investigate the understudied issue of Jewish influence. If he is wrong, it may be useful to know why and how.

Third and perhaps most important, though, is that MacDonald’s work has been influential—enormously so—in a certain segment of the lay community, namely, among anti-Semites and adherents of the burgeoning movement known as the “alt-right.” It is hard to overstate his influence among this group. Some years ago Derbyshire (2003)[12]Derbyshire, J. (2003). The Marx of the anti-Semites. The American Conservative. Retrieved (November 21, 2016) from http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/the...ites/. called him “the Marx of the anti-Semites,” and with the advent of the alt-right his audience has grown substantially. Richard Spencer, whom the New York Times calls “the leading ideologue of the alt-right movement” (Goldstein 2016),[25]Goldstein, J. (2016, November 21). Alt-right, exulting in election, salutes winner: “Heil victory”. The New York Times, 166(57423), A1, A16.Google Scholar introduced MacDonald at a conference with one sentence: “There is no man on the planet who has done more for the understanding of the pole around which the world revolves than Kevin MacDonald” (Spencer 2016).[58]Spencer, R. B. (2016). Introduction to Kevin MacDonald – NPI 2016, full speech. Retrieved (February 5, 2017) from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g93OfL1Fybc. Andrew Anglin, who runs the most popular alt-right/neo-Nazi website, says in his “Guide to the Alt-Right” that “MacDonald’s work examining the racial nature of Jews is considered crucial to understanding what the Alt-Right is about” (Anglin 2016).[4]Anglin, A. (2016). A normie’s guide to the alt-right. Daily Stormer. Retrieved (August 7, 2017) from https://www.dailystormer.com/a-normies-guide-to-the-...ight/. The New York Times describes MacDonald’s trilogy as “a touchstone” for the alt-right, a movement encompassing hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people (Caldwell 2016).[9]Caldwell, C. (2016). What the alt-right really means. The New York Times, 166(57436), SR1.Google Scholar MacDonald is also editor of the Occidental Observer, a fairly popular magazine that is devoted largely to interpreting current events in the light of his theories about Jews. Anglin (2016)[4]Anglin, A. (2016). A normie’s guide to the alt-right. Daily Stormer. Retrieved (August 7, 2017) from https://www.dailystormer.com/a-normies-guide-to-the-...ight/. lists the Occidental Observer as one of eight “sites and people” playing a key role in the alt-right movement.

The refusal of scholars to engage with MacDonald has had unintended negative consequences. Many of his enthusiasts see him as credible because there has never been a serious academic refutation of his theories. The strategy employed 18 years ago—declaring his work to be anti-Semitic and/or to not reach the threshold to warrant scholarly attention—had the doubly unfortunate effect of intimidating scholars with a legitimate interest in the topic of Jewish evolution and behavior, and creating a perception among some laypeople—even if it was false—that MacDonald was being persecuted by the academic community.

This paper attempts to give MacDonald’s theories a fair hearing. It focuses on the argument of The Culture of Critique. This book builds on the previous two, so the whole trilogy stands or falls on its merits. It has also been the most influential of the three books. It defends a radical, interesting hypothesis, and the topic it addresses (Jewish overrepresentation in intellectual movements) is worthy of study in any case. The conclusion, however, will be that the argument of The Culture of Critique is built on misrepresented sources and cherry-picked facts. The evidence actually favors a simpler explanation of Jewish overrepresentation in intellectual movements involving Jewish high intelligence and geographic distribution.

Jewish High IQ and Geography: An Alternative, Simpler Theory That Explains More of the Data? • 500 Words

The mean Ashkenazi Jewish IQ appears to be around 110 (Lynn and Kanazawa 2008)[34]Lynn, R., & Kanazawa, S. (2008). How to explain high Jewish achievement: The role of intelligence and values. Personality and Individual Differences, 44(4), 801–808.CrossRefGoogle Scholar—moderately lower than MacDonald’s estimate of 117. Jewish intellectual accomplishment is consistent with higher mean intelligence. The basic facts are well known. For example, though never more than 3% of the US population (Pinker 2006),[46]Pinker, S. (2006). Groups and genes. The New Republic. Retrieved (February 2, 2017) from https://newrepublic.com/article/77727/groups-and-genes. Jews constitute 31% of US Nobel laureates in chemistry, 50% in economics, 37% in physics, 39% in physiology or medicine, and 33% in literature (jinfo.org). Lynn and Kanazawa (2008)[34]Lynn, R., & Kanazawa, S. (2008). How to explain high Jewish achievement: The role of intelligence and values. Personality and Individual Differences, 44(4), 801–808.CrossRefGoogle Scholar give a good review of their overrepresentation in high-IQ occupations and in leadership positions in the arts, science, and industry.

But a mean IQ of 110 is not enough to explain Jewish achievement (Nisbett 2009:181).[42]Nisbett, R. E. (2009). Intelligence and how to get it: Why schools and cultures count. New York: Norton.Google Scholar It is likely that Jews also have a geographic advantage. Since the Enlightenment and particularly in the twentieth century, European Jews have been highly concentrated in major urban centers (Warsaw, Berlin, Frankfurt, Vienna, Paris, New York City, Los Angeles, etc.). These areas tended to have the infrastructure to support intellectual achievement. Indeed, even without postulating high Jewish IQ, from their location alone we would expect them to be overrepresented in intellectual endeavors.

The combination of the aforementioned factors suggests an alternative theory—what could be called the “default hypothesis”—of Jewish involvement in twentieth-century liberal movements, namely: Because of Jewish intelligence and geography—particularly intelligence—Jews are likely to be overrepresented in any intellectual movement or activity that is not overtly anti-Semitic. The qualification that Jews are not overrepresented in overtly anti-Semitic movements is important because, in the twentieth century, a higher proportion of right-wing than left-wing movements were overtly anti-Semitic. According to the default hypothesis, Jewish involvement in politics has been somewhat skewed to the left in recent history, but Jews are also overrepresented in right-wing movements that are not anti-Semitic.

The default hypothesis seems to have more explanatory power and to be more parsimonious than MacDonald’s because it posits only two factors—IQ and geography—to explain Jewish overrepresentation in all (non-overtly anti-Semitic) intellectual activities: The two factors explain why Jews are more than half of world chess champions (Cochran et al. 2005)[10]Cochran, G., Hardy, J., & Harpending, H. C. (2005). Natural history of Ashkenazi intelligence. Journal of Biosocial Science, 38(5), 659–693.CrossRefGoogle Scholar and why they comprised “[a]lmost one-half” of the elite American intellectuals in Kadushin’s (1974:23)[30]Kadushin, C. (1974). The American intellectual elite. Boston: Little, Brown.Google Scholar sample (MacDonald 1998a:3).[36]MacDonald, K. (1998a). The culture of critique: An evolutionary analysis of Jewish involvement in twentieth-century intellectual and political movements. Westport: Praeger.Google Scholar Of course, explanatory power and parsimony are not the only consideration: Agreement with empirical evidence is the ultimate arbiter. This paper attempts to determine whether the evidence favors MacDonald’s thesis or the default one.

The default hypothesis is not tied to any particular explanation of the cause of above-average Jewish IQ. Some researchers favor a genetic explanation. In an influential paper, Cochran et al. (2005)[10]Cochran, G., Hardy, J., & Harpending, H. C. (2005). Natural history of Ashkenazi intelligence. Journal of Biosocial Science, 38(5), 659–693.CrossRefGoogle Scholar argued that during the Middle Ages Ashkenazim were selected for the intellectual ability to succeed in white-collar occupations. However, it is theoretically possible that the Jewish–gentile IQ gap is due at least in part to some yet-to-be-identified cultural factor (Nisbett 2009).[42]Nisbett, R. E. (2009). Intelligence and how to get it: Why schools and cultures count. New York: Norton.Google Scholar Whatever the cause, high Jewish IQ presumably plays a role in Jewish overrepresentation in cognitively demanding activities.

Overview of Some Problems with the Arguments in The Culture of Critique • 1,300 Words

To review, the claim of The Culture of Critique is that “Jewish-dominated intellectual movements were a critical factor (necessary condition) for the triumph of the intellectual left in late twentieth-century Western societies” (MacDonald 1998a:17;[36]MacDonald, K. (1998a). The culture of critique: An evolutionary analysis of Jewish involvement in twentieth-century intellectual and political movements. Westport: Praeger.Google Scholar see also 214–15).

[I]ndividuals who strongly identified as Jews have been the main motivating force behind several highly influential intellectual movements that have simultaneously subjected gentile culture to radical criticism and allowed for the continuity of Jewish identification. Together these movements comprise the intellectual and political left in this century, and they are the direct intellectual ancestors of current leftist intellectual and political movements, particularly postmodernism and multiculturalism (1988a:213).

While Jewish intellectual movements vary in their details, they have (according to The Culture of Critique) the same broad agenda to (a) subject gentile society to radical critique that undermines its traditional institutions, (b) attack white gentile ethnocentrism and unity (in order to weaken the potential for organized gentile resistance to Jewish domination), (c) “pathologize” anti-Semitism and obscure the fact that anti-Jewish attitudes may be a response to Jewish behavior, and (d) promote multiculturalism for white gentiles (in order to weaken gentile power) while promoting separatism for Jews and racial purity in Israel. Jewish movements are alleged to have been responsible for banishing Darwinian thinking from social science, promoting environmentalism as an explanation for individual and group differences in behavior, and proscribing the study of group differences in psychology. As noted, the way in which Jewish intellectual movements are organized—headed by charismatic, authoritarian leaders such as Freud and Boas—is supposedly analogous to the organization of traditional Judaism.

There are several categories of questionable argumentation in The Culture of Critique. The following is a preview—more detailed examples will be given in later sections.

The Same Behavior Is Interpreted Differently When Exhibited by Jews or Gentiles

A common pattern throughout The Culture of Critique is that the same behavior is given a different interpretation depending on whether it is performed by Jews or gentiles. For example, when gentiles assume leadership positions in radical movements (e.g., John Dewey, Carl Jung), it is because “gentiles have . . . been actively recruited to the movements . . . and given highly visible roles . . . in order to lessen the appearance that the movements are indeed Jewish-dominated or aimed only at narrow Jewish sectarian interests” (1988a:4). MacDonald calls this phenomenon “a major theme” of his book. Another explanation he gives for gentile involvement in radical politics is that “once Jews have attained intellectual predominance, it is not surprising that gentiles would be attracted to Jewish intellectuals as members of a socially dominant and prestigious group and as dispensers of valued resources” (1988a:3).

Of course, it is possible that in all these cases where Jews and gentiles were both involved in radical politics, the Jews were acting as ethnic activists while the gentiles were being manipulated. But this theory requires strong positive evidence to be credible. As shall be argued, MacDonald never provides such evidence.

Sources Are Cherry-Picked and Jewish Involvement in Anti-Jewish Activism Is Ignored

MacDonald says that “there is a broad Jewish consensus [in the US] on such issues as Israel” (1988a:305). Nowhere in the book does he acknowledge that a great deal of Jewish involvement in politics across time and place has been decidedly opposed to narrow Jewish interests, including Israel. The most influential Jewish radical in history, Karl Marx, held extremely anti-Jewish views (Marx 2010).[39]Marx, K. (2010). On the Jewish question (C. Dutt, Trans.). In J. Cohen, M. Cornforth, M. Dobb, et al. (Eds.), Collected works, vol. 3: Karl Marx March 1843–August 1844 (pp. 146–174). London: Lawrence & Wishart. (Original work published 1844).Google Scholar The most influential Jewish radical alive—when The Culture of Critique was published and still to this day—is Noam Chomsky. Chomsky is mentioned one time in The Culture of Critique—in an endnote where MacDonald comments simply that he “could . . . be regarded as someone whose writings were not highly influenced by his Jewish identity and specifically Jewish interests” (1988a:154, n. 15). There is no mention of Chomsky’s extreme anti-Israel positions and opposition to Jewish nationalism. George Soros—possibly the most politically influential Jewish financier in the world and a major promotor of liberalism/multiculturalism—dissociates himself from the Jewish community and opposes Jewish interests (as MacDonald conceives them). He is not mentioned once in the book. MacDonald paints a picture of Jews as hypocrites who impose liberalism on gentiles and adopt nationalism for themselves, but he ignores the fact that many of the most influential Jews seem to promote liberalism and multiculturalism for both gentiles and Jews.

Just as problematically, in a number of cases MacDonald fails to report that Jews whom he identifies as ethnic activists took stands against Israel and other Jewish interests (again, defining “Jewish interests” in MacDonald’s terms as ethnic self-preservation).

The Failure of Jews to Support Overtly Anti-Semitic Movements Is Interpreted as Evidence of Extreme Jewish Ethnocentrism

Many twentieth-century Jews ostensibly abandoned their Jewish identity and sought to assimilate. MacDonald points out that these Jews often did not support gentile nationalist movements—which he acknowledges were anti-Semitic—and he argues that this is evidence that these Jews were insincere in their desire to assimilate and were actually engaging in “Jewish crypsis” (his term).

It is highly questionable whether this inference is justified. Twentieth-century anti-Semitic nationalist movements were generally not welcoming of ethnic Jews regardless of their desire to assimilate. And even if they were, it seems unreasonable to question a Jew’s desire to reject Judaism because he did not want to kill, expel, or oppress his (probably still-Jewish) family and former friends.

Sources Are Misrepresented

In numerous places in The Culture of Critique, references are given to support a claim but no support can be found in the original source, or the original source is misrepresented. Because the present paper is focused on the argument of the book, it only reports some of these misrepresentations where they significantly affect the argument. Also, for considerations of length, it only reports cases of mishandling of sources where the problems can be clearly exposed in a reasonable amount of space. Despite the fact that only some instances of mishandling of sources are reported here, these cases alone raise serious questions about MacDonald’s research practices.

No Evidence Is Ever Acknowledged to Count against the Theory

In many places, MacDonald himself brings up facts that seem to go against the predictions of his theory. While these individual facts may not in themselves necessarily refute his hypothesis, rather than revising his ideas or acknowledging that he cannot explain everything, he dogmatically insists that the apparent counterexamples actually support his views.

For example, he claims several times that Jews are opposed to affirmative action because it is against their ethnic interests (1988a:101, 105, n. 16, 308, 313, 315; see also 240–41). He says that affirmative action policies “would clearly preclude free competition between Jews and gentiles” (1988a:101) and, elsewhere, that they “would necessarily discriminate against Jews” (1988a:315). In a parenthetical, he notes that when an anti-affirmative action measure was put on the ballot in California, Jews voted for it “in markedly lower percentages” than other white groups (1988a:311). That is, Jews voted to support affirmative action. His explanation for this is that “because of their competitive advantage” among whites, “Jews may perceive themselves as benefiting from policies designed to dilute the power of the European-derived group as a whole on the assumption that they would not suffer any appreciable effect.” Again, he shows a facile tendency to spin an apparent disconfirmation of his theory as actually a verification of it.

Hundreds of Years of Gentile Radicalism Are Ignored

The reader of The Culture of Critique who has no knowledge of history is led to believe that European society was traditionally marked by “hierarchic harmony” (1988a:315) and naive, happy acceptance of traditional religion, institutions, and family relations. Then, after the Enlightenment, Jews emerged from the ghettos and commenced what was to be a 300-year war on the foundations of European culture. MacDonald ignores a long history of radical and critical gentile thought from the ancient Greek philosophers to Rousseau to the Social Gospel Movement to French existentialism to Bill Ayers to Peggy McIntosh and countless other examples.

Boasian Anthropology, Environmentalism, and Opposition to the Study of Race Differences • 1,100 Words

The second chapter of The Culture of Critique is titled “The Boasian School of Anthropology and the Decline of Darwinism in the Social Sciences.” MacDonald sees Boas as having been a strongly identified Jew who pursued (and distorted) science with the goal of preventing anti-Semitism. Boas and his followers in the 1920s promoted the idea that

American culture [was] overly homogeneous, hypocritical, and emotionally and esthetically repressive (especially with regard to sexuality). Central to [their] program was creating ethnographies of idyllic cultures that were free of the negatively perceived traits that were attributed to Western culture. Among these Boasians, cultural criticism crystallized as an ideology of “romantic primitivism” in which certain non-Western cultures epitomized the approved characteristics Western societies should emulate (1988a:28–29).

This passage and others throughout the chapter suggest that Boasians were the first to romanticize primitive cultures as “idyllic” and not subject to the ills of Western civilization. In reality, by Boas’s time this had been a major theme among many gentile intellectuals for more than 150 years. Jean-Jacques Rousseau, who popularized the romantic image of “savages” in the eighteenth century, is mentioned once in The Culture of Critique—in passing, in an endnote (1988a:211, n. 35). According to Rousseau:

The more one reflects on it, the more one finds that this state [of primitive life] was the least subject to upheavals and the best for man, and that he must have left it only by virtue of some fatal chance happening that, for the common good, ought never have happened. The example of savages, almost all of whom have been found in this state, seems to confirm that the human race had been made to remain in it always (Rousseau 2011:74).[49]Rousseau, J.-J. (2011). Discourse on the origin and foundations of inequality among men (D. A. Cress, Trans.). In D. A. Cress (Ed.), The basic political writings (2nd ed., pp. 25–109). Indianapolis: Hackett. (Original work published 1754).Google Scholar

Not all eighteenth-century European intellectuals agreed that civilization was a mistake. But virtually all seemed to accept Rousseau’s characterization of primitive life as idyllic. His ideas, including his critique of Western civilization, played an important role in triggering the French Revolution and (later) in the development of socialism, especially by Marx. All in all, he was quite probably the most influential thinker of the eighteenth century in both the short and the long run (Durant and Durant 1967).[17]Durant, W., & Durant, A. (1967). Rousseau and revolution. New York: Simon & Schuster.Google Scholar

So, contrary to what is suggested in The Culture of Critique, the tradition of critiquing Western civilization by comparing it unfavorably to traditional cultures was neither developed nor made popular by Jews. But even if he was not its inventor, could it be that Boas promoted the Rousseauian view of “romantic primitivism” to advance Jewish interests? It is true that many of Boas’s students were Jews (e.g., Alexander Goldenweiser, Melville Herskovits, Robert Lowie, Paul Radin, Edward Sapir, and Leslie Spier)—not particularly surprising given the high concentration of Jews at Columbia University at the time. But the most effective and indefatigable “Boasians” were not Jewish. MacDonald (1988a:26) notes that the students of Boas who “achieved the greatest public renown” were the gentiles Ruth Benedict and Margaret Mead. He expounds: “As in several other prominent historical cases . . ., gentiles became the publicly visible spokespersons for a movement dominated by Jews.” According to MacDonald (1988a:27), Boas “strenuously promoted and cited” Benedict and Mead as part of a ruse to hide the fact that the whole movement was designed to promote Jewish interests.

But MacDonald does not supply any compelling reasons to think that Benedict and Mead were under the control of Boas. Even if we accept that Boas’s commitment to Jewish interests biased his science and made him critique Western society and promote environmentalist, culture-based explanations of human behavior, both Benedict and Mead were strong-willed, charismatic iconoclasts who seemed to be self-directed. Although MacDonald sees them as puppets of Boas, another possibility is that Benedict, Mead, and Boas were leaders of a somewhat misguided scientific movement, with Boas being technically the “teacher” because he happened to be a few years older, and Mead being the most influential. Criticizing Boas’s scientific standards, MacDonald says that he “completely accepted” Mead’s conclusions derived from a few months of fieldwork in Samoa and “uncritically allowed Ruth Benedict to distort his own data on the Kwakiutl” (1988a:28). But, taking MacDonald’s description of the facts at face value, this suggests that Mead and Benedict were, at least in these cases, taking the initiative to distort science for ideological ends. Perhaps it was the Jewish Boas who made them do this. Or perhaps, in the absence of compelling evidence to suggest otherwise, both Jews and gentiles occupied leadership roles in this movement in anthropology.

According to The Culture of Critique, Boasian anthropology was only the first Jewish salvo against hereditarianism and the study of race. A major theme in the book is that Jews were responsible for tabooing research on race differences, particularly in intelligence. MacDonald ignores the fact that influential gentiles have been well represented among environmentalists studying race differences in intelligence, and Jews have been clearly overrepresented among prominent hereditarians.

MacDonald (1988a:314) approvingly cites Ryan’s (1994:11)[50]Ryan, A. (1994). Apocalypse now? The New York Review of Books, 41(19), 7–11.Google Scholar speculations on the psychology of the authors of The Bell Curve (Herrnstein and Murray 1994):[27]Herrnstein, R. J., & Murray, C. (1994). The bell curve: Intelligence and class structure in American life. New York: Free Press.Google Scholar

Herrnstein essentially wants the world in which clever Jewish kids or their equivalent make their way out of their humble backgrounds and end up running Goldman Sachs or the Harvard physics department, while Murray wants the Midwest in which he grew up—a world in which the local mechanic didn’t care two cents whether he was or wasn’t brighter than the local math teacher.

(Incidentally, Ryan’s article was published in the New York Review of Books—a journal that MacDonald repeatedly identifies as being an organ of Jewish interests.) This illustrates a blatant double standard applied to Jews and gentiles by MacDonald. The Jewish Richard Herrnstein, then head of the psychology department at Harvard, was the most prominent academic defender of hereditarianism regarding race differences in intelligence since WWII. Instead of accepting that Herrnstein is an example that does not support his thesis, MacDonald spins the facts by implying that Herrnstein supported the theory of race differences in intelligence because it would promote his ethnic interests. In contrast, the gentile Murray is portrayed as having no such sinister motivations—only a wish, in MacDonald’s words, for “a society with harmony among the social classes and with social controls on extreme individualism among the elite” (1988a:314).

A reasonable list of the most high-profile advocates of hereditarianism might be the following: Hans Eysenck, Arthur Jensen, Richard Lynn, Linda Gottfredson, J. Philippe Rushton, and the aforementioned Herrnstein and Murray. Eysenck had a Jewish mother, making him Jewish by both Jewish law and MacDonald’s standards. Jensen was one-quarter Jewish, so he can be counted as a gentile. That means that two out of seven of the most prominent hereditarians were Jewish, making Jews extremely overrepresented in this group relative to their numbers in the general population.

Freud and Psychoanalysis • 1,400 Words

According to The Culture of Critique, “There is . . . evidence that Freud conceptualized himself as a leader in a war on gentile culture” (1988a:117). Psychoanalysis was a pseudoscientific movement designed to pathologize anti-Semitism and undermine gentile culture and social cohesion by attacking institutions regulating love and sex. “Psychoanalytic assertions [that sexual repression prevented relationships from being based on love and affection] were never any more than speculations in the service of waging a war on gentile culture” (1988a:126). Jews, led in the US by the “New York Intellectuals,” turned Freudianism into a secular religion, using it to attack the philosophical and institutional foundations of Western culture.

Let’s consider first Freud’s influence via the New York Intellectuals. MacDonald notes that of the top 21 American intellectuals according to peer ratings in the 1970s (Kadushin 1974),[30]Kadushin, C. (1974). The American intellectual elite. Boston: Little, Brown.Google Scholar 15 were Jewish (and most were New York Intellectuals). Eleven of these 15, he says, were “‘significantly influenced by Freudian theory at some point in their careers,’” and 10 of those 11 held “liberal or radical political beliefs at some period of their career” (MacDonald 1998a:141,[36]MacDonald, K. (1998a). The culture of critique: An evolutionary analysis of Jewish involvement in twentieth-century intellectual and political movements. Westport: Praeger.Google Scholar quoting/citing Torrey 1992:185).[60]Torrey, E. F. (1992). Freudian fraud: The malignant effect of Freud’s theory on American thought and culture. New York: HarperCollins.Google Scholar The implication is that these influential Jewish intellectuals promoted Freudianism to undermine gentile culture and advance their ethnic interests. But MacDonald leaves out some crucial information.

The 15 Jews among the top 21 intellectuals were (1) Daniel Bell, (2) Chomsky, (3) Irving Howe, (4) Norman Mailer, (5) Robert Silvers, (6) Susan Sontag, (7) Lionel Trilling, (8) Hannah Arendt, (9) Saul Bellow, (10) Paul Goodman, (11) Richard Hofstadter (Jewish father), (12) Irving Kristol, (13) Herbert Marcuse, (14) Norman Podhoretz, and (15) David Riesman. A closer look shows that only two or three of these cases support MacDonald’s thesis, and several are clear counterexamples. First off, five of these intellectuals are, by MacDonald’s criteria, unambiguously anti-Israel and therefore opposed to Jewish interests. Chomsky was (and still is) arguably the world’s leading critic of Israel. Mailer tended to sympathize with the Palestinians (Theodoracopulos 2015).[59]Theodoracopulos, T. (2015). Norman Mailer vs. the liberals. The American Conservative. Retrieved (February 2, 2017) from http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/nor...rals/. When Sontag accepted the Jerusalem Prize in 2001, she used the occasion to condemn Israel (Cockburn 2001).[11]Cockburn, A. (2001). What Sontag said in Jerusalem. The Nation. Retrieved (February 2, 2017) from https://www.thenation.com/article/what-sontag-said-j...alem/. Marcuse (who will be discussed in more detail below) advocated the return of Arab refugees to Israel, ending Jewish control of the country (Marcuse 2005:181).[38]Marcuse, H. (2005). The New Left and the 1960s: The collected papers of Herbert Marcuse, Volume Three (D. Kellner, Ed.). London: Routledge.Google Scholar Arendt was the student, promoter, and lover (in a romantic sense) of the Nazi philosopher Martin Heidegger. She was best known for her book Eichmann in Jerusalem (Arendt 1963),[5]Arendt, H. (1963). Eichmann in Jerusalem: A report on the banality of evil. New York: Viking.Google Scholar in which she argued that Israeli laws were comparable to the Nazi Nuremberg laws and that holocaust-orchestrator Eichmann had been given a “show trial” and was not a particularly bad person (just that he was prompted to do bad things by circumstances beyond his control—though she faults him for not being brave enough to protest). In 1948, Arendt (along with Einstein, Sidney Hook, and 24 other prominent Jews) signed a letter to the New York Times which described the political party of Menachem Begin as “closely akin in its organization, methods, political philosophy and social appeal to the Nazi and Fascist parties” (Shatz 2004:65).[54]Shatz, A. (Ed.). (2004). Prophets outcast: A century of dissident Jewish writing about Zionism and Israel. New York: Avalon.Google Scholar

Another intellectual on the list, Saul Bellow, was a conservative who opposed feminism, multiculturalism, and political correctness. Bellow urged Allan Bloom, another Jewish academic at the University of Chicago, to write The Closing of the American Mind (Bloom 1987),[8]Bloom, A. (1987). The closing of the American mind: How higher education has failed democracy and impoverished the souls of today’s students. New York: Simon & Schuster.Google Scholar one of the most influential pro-traditionalist academic books in the past few decades (Ahmed and Grossman 2007).[2]Ahmed, A., & Grossman, R. (2007). Bellow’s remarks on race haunt legacy in Hyde Park. Chicago Tribune. Retrieved (February 2, 2017) from http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2007-10-05/news/...brooks

It is ironic that MacDonald casts Robert Silvers as a part of a nefarious Jewish Freudian movement. In the paragraph immediately following the one in which he introduces this list of 15 Jewish intellectuals, MacDonald writes:

The link between psychoanalysis and the political left, as well as the critical role of Jewish-controlled media in the propagation of psychoanalysis, can be seen in the recent uproar [over] Frederick Crews’s critiques of the culture of psychoanalysis. The original articles were published in the New York Review of Books . . . (1988a:141).

Silvers is the longtime editor of the New York Review of Books, and one of the 11 whom MacDonald identifies as being influenced by Freud.[*]MacDonald’s (1988a:154, n. 15) list of the four who were not influenced by Freud does not include Silvers.

Bell, Hofstadter, and Riesman were liberals, though not particularly extreme, not known for promoting Freud, and not seriously involved in Jewish causes. (Bell 1962:16[7]Bell, D. (1962). The end of ideology: On the exhaustion of political ideas in the fifties. Cambridge: Harvard University Press.Google Scholar described his perspective as “anti-ideological, but not conservative,” and he criticized utopian schemes such as Marxism as well as aspects of the prevailing social order.) Trilling may have been a nominal Marxist in the 1930s (D. Sidorsky, personal communication), though he evinced little interest in Jewish causes and his ethnic awareness seemed to be triggered mainly when he faced anti-Semitism. Goodman had no apparent interest in his fellow Jews, though he identified as an anarchist, so by MacDonald’s criteria might be considered an enemy of gentile culture. Howe was a liberal who supported as well as criticized Israel. That leaves the neoconservatives Kristol and Podhoretz. Kristol and Podhoretz became decidedly anti-liberal, though later in their careers they openly and aggressively supported Israel, Jewish interests, and, in Podhoretz’s case, unfettered immigration to the US.

The naive reader of The Culture of Critique would think that 11 of 15 top Jewish intellectuals were using Freudianism to attack the traditions of gentile culture while promoting separatism for Jews in the US and in Israel. MacDonald makes this conclusion fairly explicit:

Of these [15 Jewish intellectuals], only Noam Chomsky could possibly be regarded as someone whose writings were not highly influenced by his Jewish identity and specifically Jewish interests. The findings taken together indicate that the American intellectual scene has been significantly dominated by specifically Jewish interests and that psychoanalysis has been an important tool in advancing these interests (1988a:154, n. 15—partially quoted earlier).

But the evidence reviewed above suggests that this is a serious distortion of the facts. Even if it is true that 11/15 of these intellectuals were influenced by Freud “at some point in their careers,” virtually none of them comes close to conforming to MacDonald’s paradigm of a Jewish radical. Only one—Podhoretz—could be accused of hypocritically advocating different immigration policies for the US and Israel, though he was/is not a liberal and Freudianism played no meaningful role in his thinking. On the other hand, we clearly find that several people on the list—a list cited by MacDonald himself to support his thesis—are serious counterexamples to the theory of Judaism as a group evolutionary strategy. We find on this list possibly the world’s leading critic of Israel (Chomsky), a liberal who advocates the same immigration policies for the US and Israel (Marcuse), a leading advocate of traditional Western values (Bellow), and several others who, to varying degrees, were opposed or indifferent to Israel and Jewish interests.

MacDonald brings voluminous evidence that Freud strongly identified as a Jew. Based on numerous sources, he argues that Freud was unconditionally committed to promoting Jewish interests, that he “pathologized” anti-Semitism, and that he attacked gentile culture because he saw it as a threat to Jews (1988a:146). MacDonald emphasizes numerous times throughout the book that “scientist-activists” like Freud developed theories to show that “Jewish behavior [is] irrelevant to anti-Semitism” (1988a:17; see also 142, 146). He claims that Moses and Monotheism “contains several assertions that anti-Semitism is fundamentally a pathological gentile reaction to Jewish ethical superiority,” citing Freud (1967:114–17)[21]Freud, S. (1967). Moses and monotheism (K. Jones, Trans.) New York: Vintage Books (Original work published 1939).Google Scholar (MacDonald 1998a:120).[36]MacDonald, K. (1998a). The culture of critique: An evolutionary analysis of Jewish involvement in twentieth-century intellectual and political movements. Westport: Praeger.Google Scholar However, while pages 114–17 of this edition of Moses and Monotheism do discuss anti-Semitism, there is nothing about ethics/morality at all, let alone the ethical superiority of Jews or Judaism. (MacDonald did not respond to an email asking what he was referring to.)

Although Freud certainly did have a Jewish identity—if only because he was continually reminded of it by anti-Semites—MacDonald does not tell the full story. Consider the following incident (not described in The Culture of Critique). In 1929, Jews attempted to erect a partition screen to separate men and women at the Western Wall. In response, Arabs killed 29 Jews in Hebron, which led to riots in which 120 Jews and 87 Arabs were killed. A representative of the Zionist organization Keren Hayesod asked Freud to sign a petition condemning the Arabs for initiating the violence. Freud refused to sign, explaining that the Jews were partly responsible for inviting violence on themselves: “I concede with sorrow that the unrealistic fanaticism of our people is in part to be blamed for the awakening of Arab distrust” (Freud 2004).[22]Freud, S. (2004). Letter to Chaim Koffler dated February 26, 1930. In A. Shatz (Ed.), Prophets outcast: A century of dissident Jewish writing about Zionism and Israel (p. 54). New York: Avalon.Google Scholar This episode undermines MacDonald’s caricature of Freud as a monomaniacal activist dedicated to excusing Jewish behavior and pathologizing anti-Semitism.

The Frankfurt School and Critical Theory • 1,200 Words

Chapter 5 of The Culture of Critique is titled “The Frankfurt School of Social Research and the Pathologization of Gentile Group Allegiances.” It focuses on the alleged hypocrisy of members of the Frankfurt School in advocating for collectivism among Jews in both Israel and the diaspora, and pathologizing any feelings of group allegiance in white gentiles. MacDonald sees the Frankfurt School as having influenced the field of psychology particularly through the publication of The Authoritarian Personality (Adorno et al. 1950),[1]Adorno, T. W., Frenkel-Brunswik, E., Levinson, D. J., & Sanford, R. N. (1950). The authoritarian personality. New York: Harper & Row.Google Scholar a book published as part of a series called Studies in Prejudice. He concludes that “the agenda of the Frankfurt School” was to facilitate “radical individualism . . . among gentiles while retaining a powerful sense of group cohesion among Jews” (1988a:215). “[T]he central agenda of The Authoritarian Personality is to pathologize gentile group strategies while nevertheless leaving open the possibility of Judaism as a minority group strategy” (1988a:172). The Frankfurt School influenced the humanities through the development of “critical theory.”

The main problem with MacDonald’s argument is that he interprets criticism of nationalism in gentile groups to indicate approval of Jewish nationalism as long as the latter is not explicitly condemned. He never cites positive evidence that representatives of the Frankfurt School approved of Jewish nationalism, and he ignores evidence that they in fact disapproved of it. Leaving aside the question of the scholarly merits of the Frankfurt School or The Authoritarian Personality, there is no positive evidence that members of the Frankfurt School were hypocrites who condemned collectivism in gentiles and promoted it for Jews.

In his critique of The Authoritarian Personality, MacDonald emphasizes “the double standard in which gentile behavior inferred from high scores on the F-scale or the Ethnocentrism Scales is viewed as an indication of psychopathology, whereas precisely the same behavior is central to Judaism as a group evolutionary strategy” (1988a:168). But nowhere does he present evidence that Adorno et al. approved of this behavior in Jews, which is what would be necessary for them to have a “double standard.” MacDonald just assumes that they approve of this behavior because they were Jewish. Regarding the claim in The Authoritarian Personality that anti-Semitism is associated with a strong in-group ideology, MacDonald comments that “the implication is that strong ingroup ideologies should be reserved for Jews and are dangerous in others” (1988a:170). But nowhere is this actually stated in The Authoritarian Personality. It seems the “implication” is strong in MacDonald’s mind because of the nefarious motives he attributes to the Jewish authors. This does not count as evidence.

To illustrate how The Authoritarian Personality is anti-gentile, MacDonald singles out a chapter by R. Nevitt Sanford (who, incidentally, was a gentile). In MacDonald’s words:

R. Nevitt Sanford . . . finds that affiliation with various Christian religious sects is associated with ethnocentrism, and that individuals who have rebelled against their parents and adapted another religion or no religion are lower on ethnocentrism. These relationships are explained as due to the fact that acceptance of a Christian religion is associated with “conformity, conventionalism, authoritarian submission, determination by external pressures, thinking in ingroup-outgroup terms and the like vs. nonconformity, independence, internalization of values, and so forth” (Adorno et al. 1950:220).[1]Adorno, T. W., Frenkel-Brunswik, E., Levinson, D. J., & Sanford, R. N. (1950). The authoritarian personality. New York: Harper & Row.Google Scholar Again, individuals identifying strongly with the ideology of a majority group are viewed as suffering from psychopathology, yet Judaism as a viable religion would necessarily be associated with these same psychological processes (MacDonald 1998a:174–75).[36]MacDonald, K. (1998a). The culture of critique: An evolutionary analysis of Jewish involvement in twentieth-century intellectual and political movements. Westport: Praeger.Google Scholar

MacDonald cites Sanford out of context and totally misrepresents his conclusion. First, when Sanford refers to “conformity, conventionalism, authoritarian submission . . .,” he is not characterizing Christian belief. He says that to understand the relation between religion and ethnocentrism, we must consider what psychological factors play a role in the individual’s acceptance or rejection, such as “conformity, conventionalism, authoritarian submission.” He is not talking specifically about Christianity, and he says explicitly that these factors do not play a role in “genuine” Christianity. He clearly distinguishes between nominal Christians who adopt the religion of their parents or of the majority simply because they tend to submit to authority, and those “whose religion would appear to be ‘genuine,’ in the sense that it was arrived at more or less independently of external pressure and takes the form of internalized values” (Adorno et al. 1950:220).[1]Adorno, T. W., Frenkel-Brunswik, E., Levinson, D. J., & Sanford, R. N. (1950). The authoritarian personality. New York: Harper & Row.Google Scholar Sanford says that the latter—the “genuine” Christians—“tend to score low, often very low, on ethnocentrism.”

Second, Sanford characterizes traditional Christianity in a positive, not a negative, way. He refers to “Christian humanism which works against prejudice” (Adorno et al. 1950:215).[1]Adorno, T. W., Frenkel-Brunswik, E., Levinson, D. J., & Sanford, R. N. (1950). The authoritarian personality. New York: Harper & Row.Google Scholar He writes that “in America today,” the “traditional Christian values of tolerance, brotherhood, and equality” appear to be “more firmly held by people who do not affiliate with any religious group,” though “genuine” Christians low in ethnocentrism “probably predominate in [certain] Protestant denominations” (Adorno et al. 1950:219–20).[1]Adorno, T. W., Frenkel-Brunswik, E., Levinson, D. J., & Sanford, R. N. (1950). The authoritarian personality. New York: Harper & Row.Google Scholar Thus Sanford identifies the values promoted by the Frankfurt School with Christianity, not Judaism.

MacDonald (1998a:240)[36]MacDonald, K. (1998a). The culture of critique: An evolutionary analysis of Jewish involvement in twentieth-century intellectual and political movements. Westport: Praeger.Google Scholar approvingly cites Jay’s (1973:32)[29]Jay, M. (1973). The dialectical imagination: A history of the Frankfurt school and the Institute of Social Research (pp. 1923–1950). Boston: Little, Brown.Google Scholar statement on the Frankfurt School: “What strikes the current observer is the intensity with which many of the Institute’s members denied, and in some cases still deny, any meaning at all to their Jewish identities.” MacDonald sees this denial as “crypsis”—members of the Frankfurt School “conceal[ed] their Jewish identities . . . [and] engage[d] in massive self-deception.” Jewish intellectual movements “typically [occur] in an atmosphere of Jewish crypsis or semi-crypsis in the sense that the Jewish political agenda [is] not an aspect of the theory and the theories themselves [have] no overt Jewish content” (1988a:241). But again, in the case of the Frankfurt School, there is no positive evidence for this, and MacDonald ignores the evidence against it. For example, in his discussion of Erich Fromm, a leading proponent of the Frankfurt School, MacDonald writes: “The irony (hypocrisy?) is that Fromm and the other members of the Frankfurt School, as individuals who strongly identified with a highly collectivist group (Judaism), advocated radical individualism for the society as a whole” (1988a:142). Here is what Fromm said about Israel: “The claim of the Jews to the land of Israel cannot be a realistic political claim. If all nations would suddenly claim territories in which their forefathers lived two thousand years ago, this world would be a madhouse” (Woolfson 1980:13).[62]Woolfson, M. (1980). Prophets in Babylon: Jews in the Arab world. London: Faber and Faber.Google Scholar As mentioned earlier, Marcuse, one of the principal leaders of the school, is on record advocating exactly the same policies for Israel as he advocated for majority-white-gentile countries. Marcuse suggested that Arabs who were displaced when Israel was created should return, even though “such a return would quickly transform the Jewish majority into a minority.” Marcuse explained:

[I]t is precisely the policy aiming at a permanent majority which is self-defeating. . . . To be sure, Israel would be able to sustain a Jewish majority by means of an aggressive immigration policy. . . . [L]asting protection for the Jewish people cannot be found in the creation of a self-enclosed, isolated, fear-stricken majority, but only in the coexistence of Jews and Arabs as citizens with equal rights and liberties (Marcuse 2005:181).[38]Marcuse, H. (2005). The New Left and the 1960s: The collected papers of Herbert Marcuse, Volume Three (D. Kellner, Ed.). London: Routledge.Google Scholar

Again, by MacDonald’s own standards, this makes Marcuse anti-Israel and opposed to Jewish interests.

Communism • 900 Words

One Jewish radical who is conspicuous for not being labeled an ethnic activist in The Culture of Critique is the most influential of them all: Karl Marx. Marx not only rejected his Jewish heritage, he went out of his way to express and promote viciously anti-Semitic views. In private correspondence, he smeared his socialist rival Ferdinand Lassalle (another Jew) with extremely anti-Semitic slurs and described Lassalle’s physical appearance, mannerisms, and habits as exemplifying unflattering Jewish characteristics (Gilman 1984:37).[23]Gilman, S. L. (1984). Karl Marx and the secret language of Jews. Modern Judaism, 4(3), 275–294.Google Scholar (The target of these obloquies, who was a major figure in his time, also held anti-Jewish views. In Lassalle’s words: “I do not like the Jews at all. I even detest them in general. . . . I have no contact with them”; Gilman 1984:37.)[23]Gilman, S. L. (1984). Karl Marx and the secret language of Jews. Modern Judaism, 4(3), 275–294.Google Scholar Most notorious is Marx’s 1844 essay, On the Jewish Question, which contains the famous lines: “What is the worldly religion of the Jew? Huckstering. What is his worldly God? Money. . . . An organization of society which would abolish the preconditions for huckstering, and therefore the possibility of huckstering, would make the Jew impossible” (Marx 2010:170).[39]Marx, K. (2010). On the Jewish question (C. Dutt, Trans.). In J. Cohen, M. Cornforth, M. Dobb, et al. (Eds.), Collected works, vol. 3: Karl Marx March 1843–August 1844 (pp. 146–174). London: Lawrence & Wishart. (Original work published 1844).Google Scholar

According to MacDonald (1998a:54),[36]MacDonald, K. (1998a). The culture of critique: An evolutionary analysis of Jewish involvement in twentieth-century intellectual and political movements. Westport: Praeger.Google Scholar Marx held that “Judaism, freed from the principle of greed, would continue to exist in the transformed society after the revolution (Katz 1986:113).”[31]Katz, J. (1986). Jewish emancipation and self-emancipation. Philadelphia: Jewish Publication Society.Google Scholar However, page 113 of Katz (1986)[31]Katz, J. (1986). Jewish emancipation and self-emancipation. Philadelphia: Jewish Publication Society.Google Scholar makes no reference or allusion of any kind to Marx or his ideas. In regard to Marx’s views on Jewish peoplehood, Katz (1986:122)[31]Katz, J. (1986). Jewish emancipation and self-emancipation. Philadelphia: Jewish Publication Society.Google Scholar cites only his view that (in Katz’s words) “Jews qua Jews would become liberated from their Judaism to take up their place as human beings in the socialist society of the future.”

Marx, Lassalle, and many other Jewish radicals who espoused anti-Semitic views might seem to be counterexamples to the thesis that Jews are uniquely ethnocentric. In any case, although MacDonald says little about Marx himself, he sees Marx-inspired ideologies, particularly Bolshevism, as bona fide Jewish intellectual movements designed to undermine gentile society and preserve Jewish separatism. The evidence for this claim, however, is not compelling.

MacDonald (1998a:80)[36]MacDonald, K. (1998a). The culture of critique: An evolutionary analysis of Jewish involvement in twentieth-century intellectual and political movements. Westport: Praeger.Google Scholar cites Pipes’s (1993:112)[47]Pipes, R. (1993). Russia under the Bolshevik regime. New York: Knopf.Google Scholar suggestion that Jewish overrepresentation among Bolsheviks requires no special explanation because Jews were overrepresented in many fields—science, business, art, and so on. MacDonald rejects this idea with the following argument:

[E]ven assuming that these ethnically Jewish communists did not identify as Jews, such an argument fails to explain why such “de-ethnicized” Jews (as well as Jewish businessmen, artists, writers and scientists) should have typically been overrepresented in leftist movements and underrepresented in nationalist, populist, and other types of rightist political movements: Even if nationalist movements are anti-Semitic, as has often been the case, anti-Semitism should be irrelevant if these individuals are indeed completely deethnicized as Pipes proposes. Jewish prominence in occupations requiring high intelligence is no argument for understanding their very prominent role in communist and other leftist movements and their relative underrepresentation in nationalist movements.

This response to Pipes seems unconvincing. First, anti-Semitic nationalist movements generally targeted Jews regardless of their self-identity. Jews who identified as “Russian” or “Polish” would still have been discouraged, if not outright prohibited, from joining these movements as equal participants. Second, even “de-ethnicized” Jews might find it difficult to accept anti-Semitic caricatures of Jews due simply to their close contact with Jewish family and former friends.

For MacDonald, having a strong Jewish identity appears to be the only reason not to support anti-Semitic movements. As he says:

Even the most highly assimilated Jewish communists working in urban areas with non-Jews were upset by the Soviet-German nonaggression pact but were relieved when the German-Soviet war finally broke out . . .—a clear indication that Jewish personal identity remained quite close to the surface (1988a:62).

On the Nazi-Soviet nonaggression pact:

The nonaggression pact provoked a great deal of rationalization on the part of Jewish [Communist Party USA] members, often involving an attempt to interpret the Soviet Union’s actions as actually benefiting Jewish interests—clearly an indication that these individuals had not given up their Jewish identities. Others continued to be members but silently opposed the party’s line because of their Jewish loyalties (1988a:73).

Again, he interprets any objection to anti-Semitism—even silent opposition—as evidence that Jews are uniquely ethnocentric.

MacDonald devotes eight pages to “communism and Jewish identification in Poland” (1988a:61–69). A key claim in this section, based on work by Schatz (1991),[53]Schatz, J. (1991). The generation: The rise and fall of the Jewish communists of Poland. Berkeley: University of California Press.Google Scholar is that the communist power structure was dominated by Jews seeking to preserve “Jewish group continuity in Poland while . . . destroy[ing] institutions . . . and . . . manifestations of Polish nationalism that promoted social cohesion among Poles” (1988a:68). He emphasizes repeatedly—based on Schatz (1991)[53]Schatz, J. (1991). The generation: The rise and fall of the Jewish communists of Poland. Berkeley: University of California Press.Google Scholar—that the security service was devoted to this goal:

The core members of the security service came from the Jewish communists who had been communists before the establishment of the Polish communist government, but these were joined by other Jews sympathetic to the government and alienated from the wider society. . . . Jewish members of the internal security force often appear to have been motivated by personal rage and a desire for revenge related to their Jewish identity (MacDonald 1998a:66).[36]MacDonald, K. (1998a). The culture of critique: An evolutionary analysis of Jewish involvement in twentieth-century intellectual and political movements. Westport: Praeger.Google Scholar

However, MacDonald leaves out a key fact noted by Schatz (1991:225),[53]Schatz, J. (1991). The generation: The rise and fall of the Jewish communists of Poland. Berkeley: University of California Press.Google Scholar which is that 40% of the victims of the secret police were Jewish. Since the Jewish population of Poland at the time was miniscule (less than half of 1% of the population in 1949; see Schatz 1991:208),[53]Schatz, J. (1991). The generation: The rise and fall of the Jewish communists of Poland. Berkeley: University of California Press.Google Scholar Jews were extremely disproportionately likely to be attacked by the security service. These data are more consistent with the thesis that Jews were simply more likely to be in positions of power—more likely to be in the position to persecute others, and more likely to be perceived as rivals by those in power, so more likely to be persecuted. There is no convincing evidence supporting the tale of Jews qua Jews victimizing gentiles for revenge on a significant scale.

Diversity and Immigration • 1,400 Words

According to The Culture of Critique, “[the Jewish Horace] Kallen’s idea of cultural pluralism as a model for the United States was popularized among gentile intellectuals by John Dewey . . ., who in turn was promoted by Jewish intellectuals” (1988a:250). MacDonald points out that the editors of Partisan Review “published work by Dewey and called him ‘America’s leading philosopher’” and Dewey’s student, Sidney Hook, “was also unsparing in his praise of Dewey, terming him ‘the intellectual leader of the liberal community in the United States’” (1988a:250). Notice that, earlier, MacDonald argued that Margaret Mead was a puppet of her less-famous Jewish teacher, Boas. Here he argues that Dewey was being manipulated by his less famous, albeit Jewish, student, Sidney Hook. What is the reason why Dewey’s actions should be attributed to Jews?

Dewey was highly influential with the public at large. Henry Commager described Dewey as “the guide, the mentor, and the conscience of the American people; it is scarcely an exaggeration to say that for a generation no issue was clarified until Dewey had spoken” (in Sandel 1996:36).[52]Sandel, M. J. (1996, May 9). Dewey rides again. The New York Review of Books, 43(8), 35–38.Google Scholar Dewey was the foremost advocate of “progressive education” and helped establish the New School for Social Research and the American Civil Liberties Union, both essentially Jewish organizations (MacDonald 1998a:250).[36]MacDonald, K. (1998a). The culture of critique: An evolutionary analysis of Jewish involvement in twentieth-century intellectual and political movements. Westport: Praeger.Google Scholar

MacDonald concludes that Dewey “represented the public face of a movement dominated by Jewish intellectuals.”

Of course, any intellectual in late-nineteenth-to-mid-twentieth-century New York City was going to have a lot of Jewish associates. Where is the positive evidence that Dewey’s monumental success was the result of being propped up by Jewish ethnic activists? MacDonald (1988a:250) quotes Sandel’s (1996:35)[52]Sandel, M. J. (1996, May 9). Dewey rides again. The New York Review of Books, 43(8), 35–38.Google Scholar opinion that Dewey’s “lack of presence as a writer, speaker, or personality makes his popular appeal something of a mystery.” But one explanation for Dewey’s success is that people were taken with his ideas rather than with his personal charisma. This would explain how he came to be extremely influential in China, where he was known as “a Second Confucius” (Grange 2004),[26]Grange, J. (2004). John Dewey, Confucius, and global philosophy. New York: State University of New York Press.Google Scholar even though there were no Jews there to promote him.

The President’s Commission on Immigration and Naturalization (1953:92–93)[48]President’s Commission on Immigration and Naturalization. (1953). Whom we shall welcome: Report of the President’s Commission on Immigration and Naturalization. Washington, DC: Government Printing Office.Google Scholar cited five experts who submitted testimony denying innate race differences in psychology. Two of these experts were Jewish (Ashley Montagu and Philip Hauser). One of the three gentiles was Mead. Another gentile—former president of the American Anthropological Association (AAA) Ralph L. Beals—reported that the AAA unanimously rejected innate race differences. To MacDonald (1998a:254),[36]MacDonald, K. (1998a). The culture of critique: An evolutionary analysis of Jewish involvement in twentieth-century intellectual and political movements. Westport: Praeger.Google Scholar the followers of Boas were using the “ideology of racial equality [as] an important weapon on behalf of opening immigration up to all human groups.” (Boas himself died in 1942.)

An irony here is that the issue under consideration in this section of the commission’s report was not whether there were innate differences between whites and nonwhites, but whether there were innate differences between “Nordic” whites and other whites that justified limiting immigration from the latter group. The report cites Madison Grant:

The new immigration . . . contained a large and increasing number of the weak, the broken, and the mentally crippled of all [European] races drawn from the lowest stratum of the Mediterranean basin and the Balkans, together with hordes of the wretched, submerged populations of the Polish Ghettos. Our jails, insane asylums, and almshouses are filled with this human flotsam, and the whole tone of American life, social, moral, and political, has been lowered and vulgarized by them (President’s Commission on Immigration and Naturalization 1953:92).[48]President’s Commission on Immigration and Naturalization. (1953). Whom we shall welcome: Report of the President’s Commission on Immigration and Naturalization. Washington, DC: Government Printing Office.Google Scholar

MacDonald repeatedly cites Grant complaining that Jews opposed his (Grant’s) ideas. But in opposing the theory of Nordic superiority, Jews were effectively promoting, not undermining, white unity. Of course, many “Boasian” Jews argued that there were no differences between any races, but in the early twentieth century they were advocating immigration from all white countries whereas their opponents wanted to restrict immigration from non-Nordic white countries such as Italy and Poland.

According to The Culture of Critique, “American Jews have had no interest in proposing that immigration to Israel should be . . . multiethnic, or that Israel should have an immigration policy that would threaten the hegemony of Jews” (1988a:320). Regarding Jewish hypocrisy, MacDonald says:

Whereas American Jews have been in the forefront of efforts to ensure ethnic diversity in the United States and other Western societies, 40 percent of the [Israeli] Jewish respondents [in a 1988 survey reported in Smooha (1990:403)[57]Smooha, S. (1990). Minority status in an ethnic democracy: The status of the Arab minority in Israel. Ethnic and Racial Studies, 13(3), 389–413.CrossRefGoogle Scholar] agree that Israel should encourage Israeli Arabs to leave the country, 37 percent had reservations, and only 23 percent objected to such a policy. . . . Moreover, immigration to Israel is officially restricted to Jews (1988a:321).

Hypocrisy is when a person or group espouses values but applies them inconsistently. In order to attribute hypocrisy to people, it is necessary to identify the inconsistency in those people. MacDonald says that American Jews support multiculturalism, then cites a survey suggesting that many Israeli Jews advocate policies that are inconsistent with multicultural values. To justify the charge of hypocrisy it is necessary to find individual Jews advocating multiculturalism for the US and opposing it in Israel. Such Jews may exist, but there is no evidence that this is the norm. MacDonald treats the positions espoused by one Jew or group of Jews as a statement on behalf of the Jewish community and concludes that Jews are hypocrites because different Jews advocate policies that are mutually inconsistent. An alternative interpretation of the data is that Jews vary to some extent in their views among individuals and groups, in a way typical of other ethnicities.

Furthermore, the claim that immigration to Israel is restricted to Jews—even nominal Jews—was and is false. Since 1970, Israel will give automatic citizenship to anyone with one Jewish grandparent and their non-Jewish spouse and children (Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs 2013).[28]Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs. (2013). Law of return. Retrieved (February 11, 2017) from http://www.mfa.gov.il/mfa/mfa-archive/1950-1959/pag....aspx. Hundreds of thousands of gentiles were granted Israeli citizenship because of this policy (Felter 2009).[19]Felter, N. (2009). Law of Return to be revised. Ynet. Retrieved (February 11, 2017) from http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3676035,0....html. (An exact estimate is difficult to give since Israelis with no Jewish ancestors, or only a distant one, may identify as Jewish in surveys.)

It is also false that liberal Jews do not promote ethnic diversity in Israel. MacDonald says that Jews have supported black integration in the US “because such policies dilute Caucasian power and lessen the possibility of a cohesive, nationalist anti-Semitic Caucasian majority . . . while pursuing an anti-assimilationist, nationalist group strategy for their own group” (1988a:257). “American Jews have had no interest in proposing that immigration to Israel should be . . . multiethnic” (1988a:320). The Culture of Critique makes no mention of the fact that many of the same liberal Jews who advocate on behalf of blacks in the US pushed for the immigration of large numbers of nominally Jewish Ethiopians who have no genetic relation to other Jewish populations (Lucotte and Smets 1999).[33]Lucotte, G., & Smets, P. (1999). Origins of Falasha Jews studied by haplotypes of the Y chromosome. Human Biology, 71(6), 989–993.Google Scholar Israel, with around six million self-identified Jews (including at least a few hundred thousand who are not halachically Jewish), now contains a rapidly growing population of more than 135,000 Ethiopians (Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute 2015).[41]Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute. (2015). Israel’s Ethiopian population: Progress and challenges. Retrieved (February 11, 2017) from http://brookdale.jdc.org.il/_Uploads/dbsAttachedFil...S.pdf. Alan Dershowitz, whom MacDonald (1998a:244, 318)[36]MacDonald, K. (1998a).

Nashville: Jewish Lights Publishing.Google Scholar own words: “we have filed lawsuits, helped raise money, pressured leaders, and argued in the court of public opinion in favor of increased [multiethnic] immigration into Israel.”

At the end of The Culture of Critique, MacDonald asks what the ultimate consequences of Jewish-instituted liberal policies are likely to be in America. He suggests: “An important consequence—and one likely to have been an underlying motivating factor in the countercultural revolution—may well be to facilitate the continued genetic distinctiveness of the Jewish gene pool in the United States” (1988a:318). It is difficult to square this claim with the fact that Reform and unaffiliated Jews—the ones who participated in these liberal/multicultural movements—have an intermarriage rate of 50% and 69%, respectively (Pew Research Center 2013:37). (This may be an underestimate of intermarriage rates since Reform converts were counted as Jewish in Pew’s survey.) In fact, it is only those Jews who, as a group, were much less involved in national politics—the orthodox—who have low intermarriage rates and high fertility. MacDonald states that Jewish activists have increasingly started to see traditional Judaism as a better means of preserving group continuity. “Reform Judaism is becoming steadily more conservative, and there is a major effort within all segments of the Jewish community to prevent intermarriage. . . .” But contemporary Reform Judaism defines “intermarriage” as marriage between someone who identifies as a Jew and someone who identifies as a non-Jew. They care nothing for ethnic purity, and MacDonald never provides any evidence to the contrary.

Conclusion: Evidence Favors the Default Hypothesis, and MacDonald Does Not Represent Evolutionary Psychology • 600 Words

MacDonald claims that several major twentieth-century liberal intellectual and political movements were consciously or unconsciously designed by Jews as part of a group evolutionary strategy to undermine gentile societies while preserving cohesion and continuity among themselves. High intelligence and ethnocentrism are supposedly genetic adaptations that help Jews pursue this strategy. According to the “default hypothesis” proposed in this paper, Jews, having relatively high mean levels of general intelligence and being concentrated in major cities, tend to be overrepresented in cognitively demanding fields, activities, and movements that are not overtly anti-Semitic, regardless of whether they are liberal or conservative. Anticipating this alternative explanation for Jewish overrepresentation in liberal movements, MacDonald seeks to protect his theory from being falsified by evidence that supports the default hypothesis:

As anti-Semitism develops, Jews begin to abandon the very movements for which they originally provided the intellectual impetus. This phenomenon may also occur in the case of multiculturalism. Indeed, many of the most prominent opponents of multiculturalism are Jewish neoconservatives, as well as organizations such as the National Association of Scholars (NAS), which have a large Jewish membership (1988a:313).

After arguing so strenuously that liberal movements were designed to advance a Jewish group evolutionary strategy, he acknowledges that Jews are also in the vanguard in the fight against those same movements.

In recent years, Jews have continued to produce examples favoring the default hypothesis. The most high-profile opponent of liberal activism in social science is, without question, Jonathan Haidt (see Duarte et al. 2015),[15]Duarte, J. L., Crawford, J. T., Stern, C., Haidt, J., Jussim, L., & Tetlock, P. E. (2015). Political diversity will improve social psychological science. Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 38, 1–13.CrossRefGoogle Scholar who is Jewish. The most high-profile advocate of incorporating Darwinism into the social sciences is another Jew, Steven Pinker (e.g., Pinker 2002).[45]Pinker, S. (2002). The blank slate: The modern denial of human nature. New York: Penguin.Google Scholar The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE)—the most prominent organization that defends free speech on campus, primarily the speech of conservatives—was founded by Alan Charles Kors and Harvey A. Silverglate, both Jewish. There is reason to believe that Jews played a significant role in Donald Trump’s election and, specifically, in his anti-immigration policies (Dolsten 2017).[14]Dolsten, J. (2017). Meet the Jews in the Trump administration. The Times of Israel. Retrieved (February 2, 2017) from http://www.timesofisrael.com/meet-the-jews-in-the-t...tion/. The term “paleoconservative,” referring to a pro-white, pro-Western-tradition political doctrine, was coined by Herbert Marcuse’s PhD student Paul Gottfried, who is Jewish. Gottfried was also the first person to publicly use the term “alternative right” to refer to a race-conscious conservatism that opposes immigration and multiculturalism (Siegel 2016).[56]Siegel, J. (2016). The alt-right’s Jewish godfather. Tablet. Retrieved (February 5, 2017) from http://www.tabletmag.com/jewish-news-and-politics/2...right. The only major white nationalist organization that is not anti-Semitic is American Renaissance. Out of the 10 invited speakers at the first American Renaissance conference in 1994, four were Jewish (American Renaissance 2017).[3]American Renaissance (2017).

Salter (2000)[51]Salter, F. (2000). Review of The culture of critique, by Kevin MacDonald. Human Ethology Bulletin, 15(3), 16–22.Google Scholar notes that many of the sources cited in The Culture of Critique are “mainstream.” Indeed, while the Judaism-as-a-group-evolutionary-strategy trilogy has the accoutrements of sound scholarship, such as detailed endnotes and extensive bibliographies to sources that are themselves credible, the evidence reviewed here suggests that this is a smokescreen. MacDonald’s theory is built on misrepresented sources, cherry-picked facts, and assiduous refusal to consider the more parsimonious default hypothesis that the evidence actually supports.

Finally, let us turn to the question of MacDonald’s relationship with evolutionary psychology. Some opponents of evolutionary psychology have taken his conclusions as the more or less inevitable outcome of applying evolutionary theory to Judaism. Some supporters of evolutionary psychology (such as D. S. Wilson and others listed earlier) have also claimed that MacDonald is correctly applying evolutionary psychological thinking to Judaism. But misrepresenting sources and distorting history are not part of the methods of evolutionary psychology, or any other legitimate academic discipline. Those who have competently applied insights from evolutionary theory to the study of Judaism (e.g., Goldberg 2009;[24]Goldberg, R. (Ed.). (2009). Judaism in biological perspective: Biblical lore and Judaic practices. Boulder: Paradigm Publishers.Google Scholar Konner 2003)[32]Konner, M. (2003). Unsettled: An anthropology of the Jews. New York: Penguin.Google Scholar have come to very different conclusions than we find in The Culture of Critique. It is they, not MacDonald, who should be treated as representatives of evolutionary psychology and biosocial science.

  7. I did not read the article, have the idea that I know enough about jews.
    The idea that jews behaved in an evolutionary way of course is nonsense, just read the first book by Elie Wiesel, he wanted to study kabbalism.
    Never understood what it was, until I discovered that in hebrew, as in the roman language, there were just letters, no separate signs for numbers.
    This makes it possible to search during one’s whole life for hidden meaning in the Torah.
    The intellectual achievements of jews are more or less a fairy tale, they were, are, by jews who have left the judaic religion.
    Einstein was an atheist, despite his remark about quantum physics ‘does god play dice ?’.
    Freud is an interesting example, if anyone was against religion it is him, but in the last few years jewry embraced him as jew.
    The explanation for jewish intellectual achievements in my opinion is quite simple, learning is in high esteem among jews.

    Of course, there is no ‘evolutionary strategy, or strategies’, ‘adaptations’ which would explain their over representation in all walks of life. This is the necessary result of their election by God. Full stop.

    “Because of their above-average intelligence and concentration in influential urban areas, Jews in recent history have been overrepresented in all major intellectual and political movements, including conservative movements, that were not overtly anti-Semitic”.

  9. The author of this article assumes that no one at this site can do Math. Even an objective cursory statistical analysis of the media, academia, government and the banking industry to name just a few would lead anyone with an IQ above a chipmonk to the conclusion that there is something rotten in Denmark. I have been to Bar Mitzvahs where the ratio of Jews couldn’t match the Jewish data in these areas. Furthermore, I assume that the author who has a biology background can explain why Jews have mated assortatively for thousands of years despite the consequences genetically and why that isn’t a group evolutionary strategy. And please don’t hit me with the genetic bottleneck bullshit. There are no real bottlenecks. Just another excuse from the Chosen People. Also, could you explain the translations of Talmud and Torah against the so called Gentiles. Jews destroy any biblical archeology they don’t like and are always trying pass their fake finds to the world.

    Of course, there was Weimer Germany prior to World War 2. What happened there that caused the rise of Hitler? Looks very similar to what’s happening now. No matter where you turn through history there has been one group of people that have always done the same thing with the same results. The destruction and murder of millions of people like the Christians in the Bolshevik Revolution to the Palestinians in search of their Utopia. Now they have set their sights on whites, Western Civilization, and Christians. I don’t know if this is group strategy or a mentally ill group of people who think they should rule the world. Finally, your reviewers like Pinker (another Jew who doesn’t understand evolution and biology) have no credibility. That’s it get another Jew to review your stuff and say it’s okay. Wait that sounds like a group evolutionary strategy!

    Implied in this paper with the reference to Cochran et al. is the hypothesis that the explanation for higher Jewish IQ is genetic, a theory for which there is little evidence. (a) The most parsimonious explanation for the Jewish IQ advantage over other white groups is culture, as it is with all closely related populations. (b) Jews do best on the portions of IQ tests that relate the most to what children learn in school: tests of vocabulary and math skills. They’re pretty mediocre on the other portions, suggesting that what is actually being measured is education, not innate IQ. It’s true that smarter brains are more educatable, but might it also be that the math and vocabulary portions of the IQ test is measuring hours spent reading and solving math problems? It just so happens that Jews are known for having a culture that emphasizes education, so this explanation might fit. Additionally, the IQ data on Jews is highly variable.(c) Most of the studies (all?) that give them more extravagant scores are small studies, and likely not representative (New York, Orthodox schools). Finally, it’s not easy to see how you weight Israel’s (IQ 92-95) Sephari/Mizrahi/Arab populations to get an Ashkenazi IQ above 105. (d) 103 is easier to see. So, IMO a culture of going into the professions in the diaspora seems like a more parsimonious explanation for Jewish high IQ: a privilege they don’t have in Israel.

    How do you explain all the Nobel prizes and chess champions? Firstly, not 1 of the current top 10 ranked chess players is Jewish, so far as I can tell (correct me if wrong). The closest is Levon Aronian, who’s half Jewish and places 13th. Jews are still going strong in the Nobel prizes (age cohort effect?), but this may change as it has with chess. Why have they done so well in Nobels/Chess historically? I don’t know, but why have the Chinese done so poorly factoring in their huge population and demonstrable high intelligence? It’s obviously multi-factorial. We cant’ say: “Jews have won lots of Nobels, therefore they have high IQs.” Later: “Why did Jews win lots of Nobels?” “Because they have high genetically high IQs.” We need a non-circular reason to prove the genetic hypothesis.

    (a) Regarding Cochran et al. Tay-Sachs has never been shown to boost IQ. It’s also common among the Irish which is not a group that is renowned for brilliance. Torsion dystonia, on the other hand, is reportedly more common in Jews and sufferers also test higher on IQ tests by 10 points, but the disease renders its victims wheelchair and desk bound, presumably leaving them to spend most their time reading or doing clerical tasks, which could itself be the explanation for the 10 point boost in IQ. The heterozygote hypothesis is really just speculation. There is counter-evidence for a genetic Jewish IQ explanation, however, in the form of two brain size studies (Maurice Fishberg) (both with small sample size, unfortunately). They measured the size and weight of Jewish brains and found that they were smaller (by 30 grams or 2%) than Gentile brains from the same regions in Europe. The Jewish brains were also smaller relative to Jewish bodies’ smaller frame than the Gentile brains were. Brain size is correlated with intelligence both within and between racial groups, so this would be an odd trait for a genetically more intelligent group to have. (e) You might also consider that myopia is more common among Jews than Gentiles, and also correlated with IQ, just as torsion dystonia is. Is the most parsimonious explanation a plietropy of the underlying genes that cause both, or Jewish children sitting in Schul all day becoming both learned and near-sighted? (while Gentile children are outside playing) Bright light exposure prevents myopia. This is apparent in parts of East Asia where myopia has become an epidemic, going from less than 10% of children needing glasses a century ago, to over 70% today. This is not due to a fluctuation in gene frequencies.

    (b) Blacks are 70 times more genetically distant from Jews and Whites, as Jews and Whites are from each other, analagous to 1,000 vs 70,000 years of isolation. Obviously, there’s much more time for genetic differences to evolve in the former time frame than the latter.

    (c) Some studies showing them slightly below the white mean, like Shuey (1942), a large study, some up around 113 (Bachman 1970 and Herrnstein/Murray, both tiny studies) and some about the same: (Pintner-Cunningham (1920s), Hennessy and Merrifield (1978) ).

    (d) As Lynn, or others, crudely try to do. Crudely, in my opinion. He reported an estimated IQ for the Ashkenazi population of Israel as 103 in Race Differences in Intelligence 2006, and 110 in his book The Chosen People, in 2011. I don’t know what inspired him to up his score. Did he discover more data?

    (e) What do you think represents stronger evidence, brain size data, or genes causing diseases in homozygotes which are hypothesized to boost intelligence in heterozygotes? (And, in only one(?) case has a boost in intelligence been shown, and that’s in homozygotes with a disease that renders them wheelchair bound.)

    It’s interesting that Steven Pinker, C.H. Sommers and Jordan Peterson are apparently endorsing a paper whose assertion that Jews are more intelligent than Gentiles is making a genetic, Darwinian argument. Are they race-realists now?

    Given that there’s a history of a certain strongly self-identified ethnic group creating wacky, baseless theories that get pushed onto the popular consciousness (1), like Communism, Freudianism, Frankfurt School-ism, Post-Modern-Artism, Multicultural-Diversity-Race-Denialism (the theory that’s currently oppressing us), shouldn’t we be on guard not to get sucked into their next wacko “this won’t end well and millions of people will die” scheme?

    Now that many of them have decided that they’re no longer universal egalitarians, but instead race-realists and, oh, by the way, “there is a master race and it’s us,” (Pinker, Sommers & Cofnas) (a) (b) maybe we should verify their ideas this time – ensure their genetic IQs are as claimed and that this theory of Jewish racial supremacy isn’t as half-baked as all their others?

So, we get the house, guns, printing press and guard dogs, and you get the barn.” Of course, Animal Farm was about the bait-and-switch of class-equality, and what we’re currently witnessing is a bait-and-switch of race equality. Are they gonna get away with it? Put another way: “You’re all equal, the ducks and sheep, etc., but us pigs are a cut above the rest.” (c)

    (c) The “cultural” in “Cultural Marxism” the “conspiracy theory” confuses people. It’s racial Marxism.

    (d) Or, rationalizations for why they *should* be 50% of political pundits, of 40% of billionaires, or 50% of Whites in the Ivy League, or control 70% of the major media networks.

    Verbal intelligence in its roots is not only-cultural. Maybe we can say that thinking style is verbal intelligence (oops multiple…) + emotional intelligence without culture. Verbal is about communication which is one if not the most important aspect of intelligence not only human intelligence. It’s not “just” communication among people but intra-personally too. Verbal intelligence is directly related with self awareness maybe more intimate than any other accessory-bio-cultural abilities (which is also learned). Indeed to score in normal ways in verbal IQ you must learn how to write and to read at least in your mother tongue.

    Not even close. “Christians” worship the “new and improved God & Son” foisted on the Romans which led to collapse of Roman Empire. Their Yeshua was the Messiah and son of YHWH. Yeshua himself, obviously, worshipped YHWH. Christianity, therefore, is nothing more nor less than a Jewish sect or cult.

    The only way to get rid of the Jewish influence is to abandon the absurdity of thinking some ancient eastern Mediterranean mythology is any more valid than than Ancient Greek, Roman, or Norse mythology (all of them based on even older Sumerian mythology). With what we today know about evolution and DNA, it’s simply retarded to view the world through a millennia old lens. Western Civilization is a unique product of European people born of European DNA and would exist – clearly – without Jewish mythology or its bastard offshoot Yeshuanity.

    The problem enters in that our average IQ of 100 means that half the population is too dumb to fully comprehend the science or think objectively. People believe whatever BS they’re told by “authority” whether that’s their parents (later Church) or media or government and too often believe it even when it’s self-evidently absurd (even when they possess an ability to think objectively).

    Jewishness is a religion based on two things: race/ethnicity and being anti-Christ/anti-Jesus/anti-Christian and, because Christendom was built and maintained by white Gentiles, anti-white Gentile.

    The first part, race/ethnicity/blood. was cemented as a result of the destruction of the northern Kingdom of Israel by Assyria and later the conquering of the southern kingdom of Judah by the Chaldeans/neo-Babylonians. The first meant that the vast majority of Israelite males were either killed or castrated and enslaved, and the Assyrians preferred that even half Israelites marry non-Israelites/non-Jews for the next century. The second meant that a sizable minority of Judahite males were either killed or castrated and enslaved.

    The result of those two was that the northern kingdom’s genetics changed permanently. The people who survived as Samaritans were probably no more than a quarter Hebrew in genetics. But after the first round of killing/castrating, the Chaldeans allowed all Jews and half Jews to marry. When the Persians conquered Babylon and then allowed all Jews who wished to return to do so, almost all Jews would have been at least half Jewish in ethnicity and many would have been virtually pure Jew.

    Naturally, the Jews damned the Samaritans for being impure, for racial/genetic reasons.

    The virulent racism that defined 2nd Temple Judaism worsened with the rise of the synagogue movement of the Pharisees.

    All Rabbinic Judaism is the direct descendant of the Pharisees. The Talmud is pure Pharisee.

    The Episcopal Church (USA) is essentially a Reformed Synagogue in the psychological profiles of its members and leaders–while the particular, actual ancestral heritage (Anglo) may very between members, it’s sufficient in base, history and practice that their outlook and motivations appear about the same as modern Ashkenazis in the larger Western culture.

  71. “Because of their above-average intelligence and concentration in influential urban areas, Jews in recent history have been overrepresented in all major intellectual and political movements, including conservative movements, that were not overtly anti-Semitic”.

    What are the odds that “overtly anti-Semitic” as used in Cofnas’ critique has an extraordinarily broad meaning to include movements that are not in any meaningful way anti-Semitic?

    A critique of the critique might well make some hay by using Sobran’s late definition of anti-Semite: viz, “an anti-Semite used to mean a man who hated Jews . . . [n]ow it means a man who is hated by Jews.” Jews have never had a particular problem finding homes in left wing movements where they’ve been made to share space with vocal, out-and-proud anti-Semites. Accordingly, all that can be concluded is that Jews define anti-Semitism in terms of the benefits inuring to or hindrances of perceived Jewish interests and not as a product of actual and expressed hatred of Jews. If Jews manning the ADL or SPLC hate you, well then sir I must conclude that you are an Anti-Semite, and join in their hatred of anti-Semites!

    I think MacDonald is a bit silly to put his thesis in explicitly or strictly evolutionary terms – Jews need not have inherited some set of particular genes in order to explain all of their hostile behavior. Indeed, they explain the roots of their hostile behavior themselves in the art and literature that they make. It’s preposterous to ignore what Jews across time and in so many different contexts tell you themselves about what they hate and what they love.

    The Chinese are the most apposite comparison. The jews, with their extreme ethnic chauvinism and hateful animus, are clearly very different.

    Did you read all of that article? Chinese ethnic chauvinism is very much a fact throughout SE Asia. Where it differs from jewish chauvinism is that it’s based on the shared understanding that the natives are almost universally incompetent and that if you want a job doing properly, it better be done by another Chinese. There’s also a parasitic element that comes through in that Chinese will always do what is best for them and their network, while being blissfully unaware of any concept of national health. It’s not deliberate in the sense of “what’s bad for the goyim is good for the jew” but rather an emergent phenomena.

It’s like UK claims that Russia poisoned Skripals: no matter how often you repeat an unsubstantiated assertion, it does not become proof. If it’s true, there is a simple biological explanation: you just have to be smarter to survive as a Jew in a Christian or Moslem society. Even if it’s true on average, it has no predictive value. I know quiet a few Jews who are dumb and generally hopeless losers. Those who read Russian might remember Sholem Aleichem’s hero Pinia, who burnt his nose while ironing a shirt. Very typical “shlimazl”.
    One of my colleagues, a purebred Jew (always assuming that there is such a thing: I knew a Jew who considered himself purebred, but had blue eyes, which attests to a very serious admixture of non-Jewish genes), has an interesting theory. He said that incredibly silly Judaic rituals, including marriage rituals, are a defense against assimilation: no sane person would do it voluntarily, so Jews would marry only Jews.

    It is impossible to discard the Torah or Tanakh (Old Testament) if one is a Christian.

    I do, by contrast, reject the Talmud – not that I’ve ever read it.

    The OT is best understood as a model for what was to come: namely a people chosen by God whose law would be written in their hearts, and not on tablets of stone.

    Or to put it another way, the New Testament is in the Old Testament concealed, whilst the Old Testament is in the New Testament revealed.

    The NT also makes it clear that the true chosen are followers of Christ, whether they be Jew, Gentile, Male, Female, rich or poor etc.

    The “chosen” model of the OT was just that: a model of what was to come.

    Jews are, therefore, no longer the chosen people simply because they’re Jewish. And whilst the NT does say many positive things about the Jews and God’s plans for them, Zionist Christians are quite mistaken in insisting on referring to the Jews as the chosen people, when the NT doesn’t say so, but specifically does say that followers of Christ are.

    I’ll grant there’s a fair bit in the OT that’s difficult to come to terms with, but I choose to do so out of faith. Jesus and the early church clearly believed in the OT – indeed, they had no other scripture or sacred texts at the time.

    So much whimpering. I have newer encountered. Can somebody to come up with solution how to eliminate Jewish power without actually harming Jews physically?

    One imagines that exposing Jews to their own rules and prescriptions reserved for others (that is to say white gentiles, particularly males) such as “interrogation of privilege” would be a hearty start. Sauce for the gander would likely slake the thirst for these aggressive pushes for “social justice” while giving Jews insight as to how many non-Jews (such as they are permitted to write or speak without risking personal ruin) perceive them.

    Candidly I think that honest Jewish self-criticism and dialog with non-Jews regarding their criticisms of Jews is an important prophylactic against actual physical harm befalling Jews but there just doesn’t seem to be an appetite for it. Organized Jewry with notable exceptions such as the esteemed Mr. Unz seems intent upon pressing all advantages to the hilt while preemptively attacking any and all criticism as anti-Semitism from a high perch of economic and social privilege. This seems to me to be a strategy which will work wonderfully right up to the very moment that it fails catastrophically. The minority view of Jewish persecution seems to be much better calibrated to accurately predict these catastrophes than the official view, but yet it is consistently dismissed as itself anti-Semitic.

    One of the things that I find utterly baffling about Jewish behavior with regard to issues of immigration is the high levels of support among Jews for accepting immigrants who have no compunctions about expressing anti-Semitism and aggression towards Jews qua Jews. An American pogrom is most likely to have a black or brown face, and I can’t understand why Jews seem so blind to this fact as a basic matter of self-preservation.

    So why are the Ivies 20% Jewish while non-Jewish whites are under-represented?

    The author completely ignores Jewish hyperethnocentrism and ethnonepotism as factors. Some studies have shown that ethnocentrism provides a group advantage. Black Pigeon Speaks had a recent video that touched on this. Jewish hyperthnocentrism has always led to Jews helping other Jews – preaching ‘diversity’ but saying it is ‘anti-Semitic’ to point out massive Jewish over-representation in various arenas.

    No one (except for, well, you) is proposing that the test is that each and every ethnic Jew holds precisely identical views and is part of an explicitly articulated grand conspiracy to which each member takes an oath. The proposition is that there is a replicable cultural predisposition, perhaps bolstered by heritable traits such as high verbal acuity and aggressive temperament, and confirmed by a uniquely discrete religious-ethnic identity towards certain attitudes, viewpoints, and an intense in-group identification.

    And don’t you think it’s a bit precious for you to have had to resort to the obviously odd and exceedingly rare character of a Jew playing a make-believe cowboy as a data point? How many ethnic Jewish Country and Western artists do you suppose there are relative to lawyers, accountants and money managers?

    No one ever claimed that Jews make up 25% of students at all top universities, but at some, especially the important ones that the American elite is recruited from (Ivy League)

    Currently, 30% of Supreme Court justices have a Jewish background. Had Merrick Garland been chosen as the next justice instead of Neil Gorsuch, 44% of the court would have come from a Jewish background.

    Weiss goes on to take the standard line that Jews have achieved so much because of their bookish culture. But if there’s anything that stands out about Kagan, it’s how utterly ordinary she is in terms of scholarly accomplishment or anything else that would qualify her for the court–very few publications, no experience as a judge, little courtroom experience — the Harriet Miers of the Obama administration.http://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2010/05/10/kevin-macdonald-elena-kagan-gets-the-nomination/

    Has the Supreme Court Become Too Powerful?

    The practice of judicial fiat is so commonplace we seldom realize how radical it is. We are, quite simply, losing our sovereign power to govern ourselves. We have allowed the courts — the Supreme Court, in particular — to become too powerful.https://www.heritage.org/crime-and-justice/commentary/has-the-supreme-court-become-too-powerful

    The Hillel numbers seem to correlate well with the makeup of the SCOTUS, Harvard (30%) and Yale (22.6%).

    With Neil Gorsuch, 6 of 9 Supreme Court justices will have gone to Harvard

    Indeed, if confirmed, Gorsuch would return the Court to its Scalia-era 6-3 majority of Harvard Law alums, and a 5-4 majority of Harvard Law graduates (Ruth Bader Ginsburg transferred from Harvard and graduated from Columbia Law). In case you were worried about the three-person minority that didn’t go to Harvard, fear not: All three went to Yale Law.
    [...]
    But there’s also a real argument to be made that this is a dangerous kind of homogeneity. Harvard and Yale have very similar academic cultures, with very similar types of professors, very similar student bodies, and very similar intellectual milieus. It stands to reason that they’ll produce nominees who, whatever their disagreements, think and write and reason in very similar ways. They tend to take similar jobs after graduation, as law professors or political aides or at prestigious private practice firms. Sonia Sotomayor and Samuel Alito stand out as exceptions, as they’re both former prosecutors; there are no criminal defense lawyers on the Court.

    And the cycle is self-perpetuating. The Harvard and Yale-educated justices select clerks from the clerk pool of mostly Harvard and Yale-educated “feeder” circuit court judges, who tend to overwhelmingly pick clerks who went to those schools too. Then those ex-clerks get prestigious partnerships at respected firms, or professorships at good law schools, or jobs in the Department of Justice and White House, which groom them in turn for appointment to the Court decades later.

    Thom Hartmann discusses his thoughts on how the U.S Supreme Court has made itself much more powerful than the Founders ever intended.

    I replied to Jonathan Anomaly on this topic, yesterday:

    And of course, it is a necessary consequence of the great over-representation of Jews in our trade that all other ethnic groups are under-represented. Because a group that is only 2% of the population occupies something like 25% or more of the top law partnerships, that means that white protestants are under-represented by close to 25% as against their share of the population, and white Catholics (such as yours truly) are under-represented by even more [This is not true for the SCOTUS, however, before Neil Gorsuch's nomination 6 justices were Catholic and 3 were Jewish, none were Protestant, in a historically, majority Protestant nation]http://www.unz.com/article/what-the-alt-right-and-regressive-left-have-in-common/#comment-2259344

    So about 26% or roughly 1 in 4 non-Hispanic white males in D.C. is a lawyer!, if my calculations are correct. http://www.unz.com/jthompson/boost-your-iq/#comment-2083046

    This is another amazing figure. Close to 8% (!) of the people living and working in the District of Columbia are lawyers, when lawyers only make up about ~0.40% of the U.S. population

    I have never bought the claim of superior Jewish intellect….mainly due to historical records of Jews eschewing educational sciences for religious education prior to modern times and my own observation of prominent Jews.
    My question would be when did the myth of Jewish ‘innate’ intellectual superiorly ‘first’ begin?
    I haven’t found that answer yet.
    I have tried to go back in time to see how the claim of racial or genetic intelligence began and found some interesting things.

    For instance the US military administered intelligence test to recruits in WWI…the results of those test kicked off and gave a boost to studying intelligence among different races and etc..

    The man who created the college SAT test was Princeton professor Carl Brigham, who was a believer in genetic IQ, used the army test to say:

    ”The army mental tests had proven beyond any scientific doubt that, like the American Negroes, the Italians and the Jews were genetically uneducable. It would be a waste of good money even to attempt to try to give these born morons and imbeciles a good Anglo-Saxon education, let alone admit them into our fine medical, law, and engineering graduate schools.”[7]

    Those army test results had shown that Nordics, all Anglo-Saxon related Americans scored far higher than negroes and Jews.
    In addition intelligence test among immigrants conducted in the 40′s showed the same result as the army test.

    But follow up testing of those immigrants showed that the IQ of the Jews and other non Anglo immigrants had increased over the decades.

    That caused Brigham to renounce his prior claim that ‘genetics’ dictated intelligence abilities.

    Hi Stan. I must basically agree with you. The whole Jewish messiah thing and assorted miracles described in the OT and NT are fantastic, improbable and just a wee bit preposterous.

    What we’re stuck with is an unfalsifiable collection of tenured fairy tales.

    The Abrahamic faiths were all cooked up during the Golden Age of Superstition.

    Superstitions emerge in the absence of science. And the ancient Hebrews were totally a-scientific. Jesus, like his tribal contemporaries, was not only a devoted ‘creationist’, but a Flat Earther.

    Only a handful of Greeks thought otherwise (that the world was round). But our understanding of the world is now vastly different. We scoff at Flat-earthers–but not religious fundamentalists (not Jewish or Christian fundamentalists, anyway). Why?

    During and beyond the Golden Age of Superstition, concepts and understanding of the natural world were absent. This includes modern sciences involving DNA, biology, evolution, physics, chemistry, geology and astrogeophysics. Science has come a very long way. But myths die hard.

    Has the time come for ancient fairy tales (including Christianity) to be gently and voluntarily retired?

    It would seem so. After all, despite Christianity’s commendable messages, Confucius articulated the Golden Rule nearly 500 years before Jesus’ immaculate conception.

    Is this Jewish intelligence? Some may know Phil Weiss, a declared anti zonist and liberal jew who runs the mondoweiss blog on Israel-Palestine.
    Is it intelligent to claim that Jews, who were for the most part living in uneducated ghettos before the gentile halls of learning in Europe and America were opened to them, brought any excellence to non Jews?
    I think not.
    When I look at Jewish claims what I see is a overwhelming inferiority complex mixed with a resentment of non Jews resulting in hostile bravado and never ending lies about themselves.
    And what I really don’t understand about Jew’s claims is why they lie when it is so easy to expose the lies. And when you do expose their lies they just literally go blank ….just like when you get one of those blank pages from the net.

    ”My friend said he was a secular Jew and asked me how I define myself. An assimilating Jew, I said. Shortly after that, his friend said, I don’t know what an assimilating Jew is, and walked away.

    My other friend is more intellectual. He said, What do you think will be lost if Jews assimilate into America? He answered his own question: the excellence that Jews have brought to any number of endeavors, science, the arts, finance, education, and so forth.

    I said, But what if these qualities are more widely shared with assimilation? Will our excellence pull up others’ mediocrity?

In other words, Jews didn’t evolve a specific “gene of undermining”, but rather utilize what normal people would call general intelligence to serve their perceived interests. In other words, cultural factors are admitted – although as you’d expect, it’s obliquely described using jargon to sound sciency.

    Unfortunately, all the intellectual and political movements Jews have forced on the rest of the world for the last 250 years have been detrimental to mankind.

    Gilad Atzmon writes on the above subject in his books e.g. Being In Time.

    It boils down to Athens vs Jerusalem.

    Jerusalem is a Priest Class of “law” and rules, that are absolute – my way or the highway.

    Athen’s represents debate and finding natural law, or logos.

    Greek method of teaching, for example the Trivium, was heavily dependent on debate and finding the truth of things through intellectual investigation.

    Most of the Shetyls in Poland and Pale of Settlement were backward places, where the government tried to break the grip of religiosity. In other words, Judaic law was a “lock down” skull fu*k.

    Kevin McDonald makes the case that the smartest Jews from Pale would emigrate West to Germany to meet up with an Ashkenazi merchant. Yiddish then formed as language, and genetic self selection also formed. The higher IQ girls or boys were selected to move West.

    High IQ Prussian’s had no difficulty with the Jews, until later in history when Jews started acting as an in-group at odds with the Germany’s better interests.

    Jewish and especially Talmudic doctrine allows usury, and much of Jewish in-group perfidy is funded through the finance mechanism. Owning of the press, paying off economic chairs at university (to spread ne0-liberal nonsense as hypnosis), and especially attaching yourself at money centers is a group evolutionary strategy.

    As Gilad exposes, Jewish planning is done out in the open, which is why he is now being persecuted.

    In A People That Shall Dwell Alone, the first volume in his trilogy on Judaism, Kevin Macdonald devotes an entire chapter to the similarities and differences among various diaspora peoples, including the Jews, the overseas Chinese and the Gypsies. He makes exactly the point you think disproves his argument: that the overseas Chinese dominate economically the region of Southeast Asia, but unlike the Jews, do not interfere in the politics in order to change the culture.

    It is called being “hoisted on your own Petard.”

    Or maybe “blowback.”

    For example, Zion proscribes nationalism and ethnic Jews only in Israel, while proscribing the exact opposite in Western Lands.

    Frankfurt School and Illuminism is intent on breaking down the family using Liberal Shibboleths.

    Once can do a simple statistical study of Jewish Organizations, and their organizing philosophy will overwhelmingly be liberal. So now Israel is becoming infected? It is hard to maintain a lie, so Israel is being “hoisted.”

    A parasite will convince its host that said parasite is necessary to the host’s functioning. Much of this is done by brainwashing, especially through a controlled press.

    It’s doubly good when you do population replacement, to then have a dullard easily maneuverable population. Maneuvering through sexual degradation, or fixating on race identity (as long as a Jew isn’t called out) is just one manifestation of Frankfurt skoool and other Jewish derived hypnosis.

    Taking high ranking positions that do not involve “labor” is a quality known for the in-group throughout history.

    In the Leo Frank case, they talk about this openly. In the book 200 years together, it explains how Tsars actually gave Jews land, which they refused to farm. They would rent it for sharecropping and sell farm implements, to then become merchants or distillers.

    Distillation and making of spirits then undermined the host population. Slav Ukrainians were too unsophisticated and trusting, and got taken in by the various rent schemes. Even in this breadbasket grain became scarce as it was turned into spirits.

    Our friends did the same thing in Early America’s making rum to sell to African’s to then acquire slaves. The Jewish owned slave ships on their outbound journey would be filled with hemp, rum, and lumber. Jewish Capital from London and Wall Street funded the ships and slave trade – you know anything to make a shekel.

    Finance Capitalism is tightly interwoven into Atlantacism, that is the moving of goods about the Atlantic by ship. Making”international” trades is to make a cut on the comings and goings of international capital. Breaking down nation states is part of ZOG’s scheme.

    Also, the hypnosis that there is to be one world government with one world money emanates entirely from Zion and Illuminism.

    As to the question of whether it “matters”, that all depends on your point of view.

    Now, are you honest enough and smart enough to admit the one indisputable fact here – that Jewish over-representation can’t possibly be explained by their IQ?

    I said nothing about Hitler. The Rothchilds were helping to fund the move of Jews. Some didn’t want to go. Read some older Jewish books. Socialism works, look at Denmark or other small socialist nations, you need a population of the willing and it doesn’t tolerate dissent. Most societies can’t tolerate dissent and communism kills Christians who are mostly non-violent. Democracy just allows foreigners to vote their way in on someone else’s nation, usually something they wouldn’t allow for their own. I also don’t need to study any of that as it really is irrelevant, to the fact that Germans are the indigenous people of Germany regardless of whether Jews want to live on their land or not. Look st what the left does everywhere.

    I’d wager that many of these lawyers are in the employ of corporations and not involved in running the government, but rather specialize in ruining the government/country:

    Many D.C. lawyers work full- or part-time as lobbyists. The roles of lawyer and lobbyist are somewhat alike. “In many respects, the jobs are very similar, but simply play out in different forums,” says Newberry. “A lawyer representing a client in court on traditional legal matters is seeking to solve problems for his or her client in that forum, while a lobbyist is seeking to solve problems for his or her client in Congress or the executive branch rather than the courts.”

    If you look at the three studies in the Curt Dunkel paper, (Dunkel is also referenced by Cofnas) and you weight their results sensibly,** you’ll find that Jewish IQ is about 107 and non-Jewish whites 101-102. This gives Jews a 6 point advantage (or maybe less), or .4 standard deviations.

    Given these numbers, you’ll expect Jews to outnumber non-Jewish Whites per capita above IQ of 145 by a factor of 3.45. Taking 145 as the IQ of a Harvard students (which is probably too high, probably more like 130-135), and given that Jews are 1.8% of the college age population, and non-Jewish Whites are about 50%, you’d expect Jews to be about 5.4% of Harvard students, and non-Jewish whites somewhere north of 60%..***

    I feel like I’ve been reasonable, even generous in my treatment of these numbers. If Jews are over 10% of Harvard students, it raises big questions about the meritocracy of its admissions policies.

    ** The two studies with the larger sample sizes and comprehensiveness give Jews an IQ advantage of only about 4-5 points, according to my calculations. (MIDUS II and Project Talent)

    *** This 60% figure is based on mental math, unlike the 5.4% Jewish figure which I manually calculated. This is based on the IQ of the U.S. as a whole is about 98, factoring in Black, Hispanic and Asian IQs. White IQ is about 101.5, so a bit higher than the average American.

    What I found “really” interesting is that somewhere in one of Ron’s articles he mentions that Jewish IQ was actually not higher than whites until after WW2

    Well , that would be in keeping with the army QI test I posted about above….at time of WWI Jews tested much below the Anglo Saxon test takers. They continued to test lower for several decades until their IQ results started gaining in the late 50′s-60′s. We have to remember the biggest wave of Jews–2 million Jewish immigrants–occurred between 1899 and 1920, so they didn’t hit their stride until 3o years later, after exposure to secular US education. system. Some more recent I think is some of the Russia Jews who got excellent educations in Russia.

    Here to me is the pertinent part as to why IQs cycle, iow tend to rise and then fall off.
    The difference between urban and rural also makes sense in noting that the internet as a learning tool has closed the gap with the Jews who mostly had the advantage of more educational opportunity/exposure in urban areas.
    I guess we Episcopalians could put the Jews in their place as …”An analysis of the data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth found that Americans raised in the Episcopal Church actually exceeded Jews in mean IQ, while several other religious categories came quite close, leading to the result that the overwhelming majority of America’s high-ability white population had a non-Jewish background.
    Also some where in the study it is mentioned that the high IQs of the Anglo Saxons has held steady, while others have dipped after long period in America .

    ”Taken in combination, these trends all provide powerful evidence that over the last decade or more there has been a dramatic collapse in Jewish academic achievement, at least at the high end.
    Several possible explanations for this empirical result seem reasonably plausible. Although the innate potential of a group is unlikely to drop so suddenly, achievement is a function of both ability and effort, and today’s overwhelmingly affluent Jewish students may be far less diligent in their work habits or driven in their studies than were their parents or grandparents, who lived much closer to the bracing challenges of the immigrant experience. In support of this hypothesis, roughly half of the Jewish Math Olympiad winners from the last two decades have had the sort of highly distinctive names which would tend to mark them as recent immigrants from the Soviet Union or elsewhere, and such names were also very common among the top Jewish science students of the same period, even though this group represents only about 10 percent of current American Jews. Indeed, it seems quite possible that this large sudden influx of very high performing immigrant Jews from the late 1980s onward served to partially mask the rapid concurrent decline of high academic achievement among native American Jews, which otherwise would have become much more clearly evident a decade or so earlier.

    This pattern of third or fourth generation American students lacking the academic drive or intensity of their forefathers is hardly surprising, nor unique to Jews. Consider the case of Japanese-Americans, who mostly arrived in America during roughly the same era. America’s Japanese have always been a high-performing group, with a strong academic tradition, and Japan’s international PISA academic scores are today among the highest in the world. But when we examine the list of California’s NMS semifinalists, less than 1 percent of the names are Japanese, roughly in line with their share of the California population.[62] Meanwhile, Chinese, Koreans, and South Asians are 6 percent of California but contribute 50 percent of the top scoring students, an eight-fold better result, with a major likely difference being that they are overwhelmingly of recent immigrant origin. In fact, although ongoing Japanese immigration has been trivial in size, a significant fraction of the top Japanese students have the unassimilated Japanese first names that would tend to indicate they are probably drawn from that tiny group.
    In some respects, perhaps it was the enormously outsize Jewish academic performance of the past which was highly anomalous, and the more recent partial convergence toward white European norms which is somewhat less surprising. Over the years, claims have been widely circulated that the mean Jewish IQ is a full standard deviation—15 points—above the white average of 100,[64] but this seems to have little basis in reality. Richard Lynn, one of the world’s foremost IQ experts, has performed an exhaustive literature review and located some 32 IQ samples of American Jews, taken from 1920 to 2008. For the first 14 studies conducted during the years 1920–1937, the Jewish IQ came out very close to the white American mean, and it was only in later decades that the average figure rose to the approximate range of 107–111.[65]

    In a previous article “Race, IQ & Wealth,” I had suggested that the IQs of ethnic groups appear to be far more malleable than many people would acknowledge, and may be particularly influenced by factors of urbanization, education, and affluence.[66] Given that Jews have always been America’s most heavily urbanized population and became the most affluent during the decades in question, these factors may account for a substantial portion of their huge IQ rise during most of the twentieth century. But with modern electronic technology recently narrowing the gaps in social environment and educational opportunities between America’s rural and urban worlds, we might expect a portion of this difference to gradually dissipate. American Jews are certainly a high-ability population, but the innate advantage they have over other high-ability white populations is probably far smaller than is widely believed

    This conclusion is supported by the General Social Survey (GSS), an online dataset of tens of thousands of American survey responses from the last forty years which includes the Wordsum vocabulary test, a very useful IQ proxy correlating at 0.71. Converted into the corresponding IQ scores, the Wordsum-IQ of Jews is indeed quite high at 109. But Americans of English, Welsh, Scottish, Swedish, and Catholic Irish ancestry also have fairly high mean IQs of 104 or above, and their combined populations outnumber Jews by almost 15-to-1, implying that they would totally dominate the upper reaches of the white American ability distribution, even if we excluded the remaining two-thirds of all American whites, many of whose IQs are also fairly high. Furthermore, all these groups are far less highly urbanized or affluent than Jews,[67] probably indicating that their scores are still artificially depressed to some extent. We should also remember that Jewish intellectual performance tends to be quite skewed, being exceptionally strong in the verbal subcomponent, much lower in math, and completely mediocre in visuospatial ability; thus, a completely verbal-oriented test such as Wordsum would actually tend to exaggerate Jewish IQ.

    Stratifying the white American population along religious lines produces similar conclusions. An analysis of the data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth found that Americans raised in the Episcopal Church actually exceeded Jews in mean IQ, while several other religious categories came quite close, leading to the result that the overwhelming majority of America’s high-ability white population had a non-Jewish background.[68]

    They play as a team against people who are playing against one another as individuals. Then when those people perk up and fight back it’s “oy vey, I’m being persecuted, why!?”

    I’m sure the early discredited stuff about Ashkenazi jews possessing 115 average IQ’s or higher with verbal ability so high it couldn’t be measured, or whatever, was an artifact of selective sampling and immigration. Contra the myth of the wretched refuse, the dirt-poor ragpicker whose son got into Harvard, you had to have at least some money and wherewithal to make the trip to America from the Polish ghettoes in the first place. Back-projecting the intelligence of these immigrants onto all jews would be like doing the same with Chinese immigrants and Chinese back home, or Indian immigrants and India.

    The fact that Israel, while first world, is no where near as impressive as the Asian tigers and Japan and China (or more impressive than goy Europe) should prove that jews aren’t supermen at all.

    Yes I forgot about Derbyshire, Karlin and Jordan Peterson. About motives of them and Murray, Lynn, Cochran and Sailer we can only speculate but I do not care any more. We know them by their fruits. Perhaps I was concerned about Karlin at some point because he was young and I thought that he could be salvaged and that Russia did not need the poison he was bringing there. But our culture produces soulless and shallow Karlins by tens of thousands every year so who care about one more or less lost soul.

    I would find interesting if I could get some information about where do the money comes from and how conscious of what they are doing are the sponsors or are they just another shell of useful idiots.

    I think that the triad of Ayn Rand, Libertarianism and IQism is one of the most vile enterprises ever designed to to trap and destroy the minds and souls of young generations.

    @WhiteWolf

    Proposing an equable dialogue: Posit ‘all’ Jews as ‘guilty.’ [Long but not sorry.]

    1st, we need *agreed* definitions:

    [COED:] guilty
    adjective (guiltier, guiltiest)
    (often guilty of) culpable of a specified wrongdoing. justly chargeable with a particular fault or error.
    having or showing a feeling of guilt: a guilty conscience.

    Here, ‘all’ may not be 100% but one or more of these:

    1. the simplest, ‘democratic’ majority = 50% + 1 votes

    2. a more general majority = 1 std. dev. = 68.27%

    3. ‘most’ = 2 std. dev. = 95.45%

    4. ‘practically all’ = 3 std. dev. = 99.73%

    [MORE]

    Those all need counting; not too practical for me to do, so my suggested alternative ‘all’ is ‘the effective faction,’ being that which gets things done, plus some ‘silent majority’ [however defined or counted], recalling that silence is acquiescence and some ‘active opposition’ of whatever size, but clearly ineffective.

    Now, a lemma: At any crime-scene, there are one or more perpetrators, possibly accessories, apologists and/or ‘idle’ bystanders. It is incumbent upon *all* witnesses to attempt to a) restrain malefactors and b) where possible, rescue victims from harm. *All* present and not in active resistance to the crime attract proportional guilt.

    Addendum: Any person profiting from crime also makes him/herself an accessory, like specifically here, all [non-native descended] residents in the ‘illegitimate entity,’ say.

    The worst crime here, is the illegal entity itself, referred to by some as ‘Israel,’ but more ‘properly,’ the parts of pre-Herzl Palestine squatted upon by the unwanted, invading-by-stealth, mainly European Jewish immigrants, as ‘supported and assisted’ by the British via Balfour, say, and British *miss*-management of their LN mandate. These invaders then attacked the natives, with the observed result; mass-murder, ethnic cleansing, improper alienation of the ELO/Os’ [= erstwhile legal owner/occupiers'] land.

    A 2ndary but still heinous crime here, is the infiltration of many so-called ‘Western’ countries and their governments by a filthy fifth-column, and the resulting *coerced* actions = corruption attributed to those interlopers.

    While on coercion, recall the charming term for j-dissidents: “Self-hating Jews.”

    The argument, facts; consider the I/J/Z-plex’s 9 steps to utter, criminal ignominy:

    1. Herzl 1897+; coveting, expropriation
    2. Balfour 1917; aid Zs, no consult Ps
    3. Jabotinsky 1923; colonise by force
    4. Ben-Gurion 1936-39: “we are the attackers and the Arabs … own the land”
    5. Meir 1947/48; raised $US50mio for arms, one supposes mostly from Jews
    6. Aggression: When immigrants (=aliens) attack ELO/O natives, it’s *not* civil war but Nuremberg-class crime
    6a King David Hotel bombing
    6b Deir Yassin massacre plus all other such outrages
    7. Z-terrorism; right down to the ‘current moment,’ attacks on neighbours like the Gaza, alien invaders’ highest-tech weapons vs. besieged & blockaded, basically unarmed natives
    8. US-support incl. UNSC vetoes; also down to ‘current moment’
    9. Z-hasbarah = mostly lies, designed and deployed to deceive

    The argument, international law:

    1. 1946 Nuremberg, supreme international crime … accumulated evil

    2. 1947 UNGA181, partition: “an area … shall be evacuated” [invalid + no UNSC action = not law] – but see 273

    3. 1948 UNGA194, right of return [for the ethnically cleansed]

    4. 1949 UNGA273, admit to membership, precondition 181, 194 [dishonoured]

    5. 1967 UNSC242, inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by war

    The argument, UDHR *inalienable rights*:

    Article 3.
    •Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
    Article 17.
    •(1) Everyone has the right to own property alone as well as in association with others.
    •(2) No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his property

    The argument, morals (decalogue):

    1. Thou shalt not kill

    2. Thou shalt not steal

    3. Thou shalt not bear false witness [= lie]

    4. Thou shalt not covet

    The argument, morals (kindergarten):

    5. Do not hit!

    6. Don’t touch things not yours!

    Finally, the argument, Palestinian land:

    Land is alienable.

    [COED:] alienable
    adjective Law able to be transferred to new ownership.

    But: This means by free and fair contract, wherein the buyer makes a *fair* offer [aka not 'do as we say or die!'] and the seller may *freely* agree.

    IOW: A fair exchange is no robbery; no sale = no ownership.

    Summary:

    The only serious ‘offers to buy’ were made between Herzl’s 1897+ coveting and the aggressive alien interloper attacks starting 1947/48, offers which were mostly rebuffed, and resulted in Jews acquiring only ~6% of Palestine, that mostly of marginal quality, for over-high prices and from absentee landlords. As long as the ELO/Os [heirs & successors] don’t agree to sell [mad if they ever did!] – the land remains theirs = Palestinian, see Ben-Gurion above.

    Just as the UN had no right to ‘give’ [assign, whatever] any part of Palestine to any 3rd party, nor had the UN any right to ‘recognise’ any squatter on improperly alienated land as a ‘nation,’ hence Israel remains an “illegal entity.” As shown and worse, it is also a “supreme international crime” scene, and the responsibility for that lies with *all* Jews, as a) they claim ‘God-promised Jewish home,’ b) they claim to be democratic [only democracy in the ME!] and c) they ‘did the crime, must do the time,’ since d) they do not effectively oppose the crime. Jews *could* withdraw all support and b) the non-native residents [heirs & successors] could *exit*, as in RoR+R*3 = Right of Return + Revest, Reparations and Reconciliation.

    Lastly, further responsibility and accessories: Jews are not alone in supporting the ‘illegitimate entity,’ what of the govts. of most countries *inaction* on bringing justice to the hapless Palestinians? Recall again that silence is acquiescence. Just as Mme May has corruptly gathered ‘Western’ support for her risible accusations against Russia and alleged nerve agents, so most countries, people as well as govts., could legitimately rally around condemnation and a 100% BDS of Israel. rgds

    Wilhelmine Germany also had a huge Jewish population, which powered its technological progress. There’s a reason that Germany was the preeminent global center of science circa 1900, but has contributed virtually nothing since 1935.

    ¸

    This is ahistorical & simply wrong. Post 1871 Germany did not have “huge” Jewish population; it was ca. 400,000 people, as I recall. And most German accomplishments were done by ethnic Germans.

    Even more, much more creative period in German (I’ll include Austria because I’m writing about German-speaking world) Enlightenment & early 19th C period, from 1770-1830, when German genius was massively creative in all fields, including sciences, philosophy, literature, music- and not a single Jew among creative titans: Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Euler, Gauss, Goethe, Kant, Hegel, Fichte, von Clausewitz, brothers Grimm, Alexander and Wilhelm von Humboldt, Scheele, Hamann, Herder, …

    German recovery after 1945. is much more fascinating because this country was virtually plundered by victorious Allies & had overtaken re productivity, innovation & economic success supposed victors (Britain, France,..) as early as 1950s.

    “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.”

    A somewhat double-sided thesis, especially when jousting with a perceived enemy, such as Jews, say – or even with connection-denying non-Jews strenuously defending Jews, so therefore in a way, crypto-Jews. [A corollary of the 'Pottery Barn' rule = you break it, you own it = you pay for it. This forum is not some sort of 'moot court;' you defend them, you join them = you *make yourself* one of them.] Especially when what/whom you defend is the illegitimate entity evilly squatting on Palestine, mostly populated by invading alien, supreme international crime = murdering for Lebensraum criminals [their heirs and successors] – who in turn, are drawn from and supported by the entire Jewish [mostly Khazar-descended = *non*-Semite, *non*-Hebrew = fake-joo] tribe. Who in turn parasitically infest ‘the West’ plus much of the rest, Oh woe!

    KISS:

    [COED:] Occam’s razor (also Ockham’s razor)
    noun the scientific principle that in explaining a thing no more assumptions should be made than are necessary.

    We can make a looong story short, merely by posing a few pertinent Qs:

    1. Can it be determined, if the presence of Jews is more or less harmful to the whole wide world?

    2. Can it be determined, if the presence of Israel is more or less harmful to the ME and/or the wider world?

    3. Most important, could non-Jews [aka the charmingly termed 'Goys;' the term "goyim" means "cattle" in Hebrew] live a satisfactory life, in the total *absence* of Jews?

    4. Speaking of *absence* of Jews, could the US so recover their nation?

    Readers are encouraged to extend this ‘line of inquiry.’

    I have recently proposed 2 practical, inclusive solutions, 1) for Palestine, RoR+R*3 = Right of Return + Revest, Reparations and Reconciliation and 2) for all Jews, ‘marching orders’ and travel documents/tickets to the moon … err, to the Jewish Autonomous Oblast, administrative centre being the town of Birobidzhan in the Russian Far East.

    The white population is a group with a broader range of IQs and abilities, which is characteristic of a full society. Any functioning society needs farmers, mechanics, cooks, cleaners, builders, laborers, etc, and the presence of these people in a group does not take away from the group. They add to the group, and allow the society to function, no matter if they lower the average group IQ by a few points, or not. For Jews to have an America that they believe they can dominate long-term, they have to import these people, which they are doing.

    Does anyone believe that a society of middlemen, academics, schemers, unemployed religious nuts, hustlers, rabble trousers, and charlatans could stand on its own, no matter how high the average IQ?

    Very interesting angle, that Derbyshire and Sailer and karlin etc are getting funding. It’s so baffling otherwise that I’m prepared to consider it.

    But yes, Ayn Rand, libertarianism, IQ myth, etc – the final and most complete expression of “winner worship” and “fact worship” that Western culture has produced and perhaps “the” fatal handicap from which the West will not recover.

    As bad as Jewish culture is, Jews would never see the success of any European people as representing an inevitable cosmic hierarchy simply because, for the moment, it “won”.

    It’s almost as if Jews, when confronted by a situation, can put the situation into a larger dynamic context, whereas whites see each situation as a set of facts disconnected from any larger context and therefore complete and permanent.

    It’s a radical loss of perspective, context, and vision – and is the obvious consequence of taking “reductive” thinking to an absurd extreme.

    Imagine if the Japanese, for instance, had reacted to European ascendancy with the mindset of a Derbyshire, Sailer, or Karlin – they would be our slaves.

    But the Japanese never took “reductive” thinking altogether too seriously. It was always a tool for them, never a God.

    The upshot is never trust a man who takes numbers too seriously – it leads to a drastic loss of perspective, an inability to place any given “fact” in a larger dynamic context, and prepares one mentally for slavery.

    The west plundered both after WWI and WWII.
    It was best visible after WWI, so, for example the whole German fleet was stolen, as locomotives, carriages etc.
    After WWI it was most scientific knowledge, such as Von Braun and several hundred specialists kidnapped and brought to the USA.
    At first the USA did not know what to do with them, prime motive to keep them out of USSR hands.
    Thus their ‘welcome’ speech ‘you are here on ice’.

    I would disagree . I think high thinking whites lean more to inductive reasoning, what is observably true and abductive reasoning, what s most likely true.

    Reductive reasoning shows what is not true….but it has to beat the inductve and abductive first.

    I do think Jews see a big picture, the picture which is their goal ….but not the world big picture…. and….unlike high thinking non Jews, Jews do not consider the ramifications of each step they make toward that goal….iow they do not think out the end results ……they simply push steps for an end result, much like throwing shit on the wall and hoping some of it sticks.

    The nature of the Jew make them incapable of understanding that the steps they take mount up to eventual backlash and cause them to lose their big picture goal. Think of the steps they have taken, the Gaza assault, the effort to violate the constitution by criminalizing boycotting Israel…each time they push for their big picture the number of people who become anti Israel and anti Jews increases.

    Some Jewish writer who’s name I cant remember now once wrote of the Jews….”we lose because we have never be able to look into the others eyes and know when they have had enough”

    Jews will eventually lose the US because of their attention getting shit throwing steps to their big picture.

    Well yes, I largely agree with what you’re saying…

    And yes, the great age of European thinking did involve white people taking a larger view, and Jewish thinking is characteristically narrow by definition almost…

    My point is that a sort of “disease” has taken over the thinking of a significant portion of highly intelligent white people, and that it makes their thinking even narrower than that of Jews…which is truly remarkable.

    And this way of thinking is simply taking reductionist thinking to absurd extremes, where you can no longer see any kind of context.

    Guys like Derbyshire, Karlin etc are in a significant and interesting way even narrower thinkers than Jews.

    As weird as it sounds, Jewish self-interest creates a larger intellectual horizon than Karlin’s stopping before each and every contemporary “fact” as if it were final, eternal, and permanent, and the consequent worship of “winning” – since by definition wining is a fait accompli, and if you cannot connect faits accompli to a wider context they necessarily seem final and irreversible…

    Even though Jews by definition worship “winning”, they do not worship the fait acconpli, the mere contemporary “fact”….they place it in a larger context.

    To get an idea of what I’m saying, for Jews a defeat or centuries spent in low status aren’t final, for guys like Karlin a few decades of whites being on the defensive are enough to convince him it’s the “natural” order of things..

    Whites are guided by facts and dominated by them – and a fact is only what happens to be the case at the moment. Jews and Asians place facts in larger contexts – i.e connect them to larger sets of facts – and have a dynamic relationship with them.

    I don’t mean all whites at all times – not setting up a “natural” order here – just a significant portion of highly intelligent contemporary whites.

    Israel is a Jewish State. Here are the stats for world countries by their IQ: https://iq-research.info/en/average-iq-by-country
    Israel (IQ=95) which is, for example, below Hong Kong (IQ=108), Singapore (IQ=108), Mongolia (IQ=101), Finland (IQ=99), Poland (IQ-99), Latvia (IQ=98), Russia (IQ-97), Uruguay (IQ=96), Moldova (IQ=96) and more countries.

    “. ..if Jews are so much smarter, then why are they wrecking western civilization?”
    — their tribalism trumps goodness and morals. This mental defect wrecks their assimilation. As a result, the safest places are becoming unsafe both for the natives and the ungrateful guests.
    Perhaps, if the ideas of nationalism (which the Holocaust biz loves to hate) were not adopted with such a vigor by the European Jews in the 19-20th century, the world would be a safer and juster place. Instead, the Middle East is on fire, the EU is flooded with refugees and migrants, the US Congress is “guided” by the wealthy ziocons, the US military is preparing to fight and die for Israel — and the US citizenry feels betrayed on all fronts.
    The Jews are never alone in the misdeeds; there are always the bought and opportunistic confederates among the “natives.” But the main cause of the misdeeds is unmistakable: the moral relativism that is tribe-enforced.
    The best and brightest among the Jews do see the problem and they are trying to confront the stupidity of prosecution for BDS, the stupidity of the Kagans et al. stink-tanks inspired by Wolfowitz doctrine/Oded Yinon plan for Eretz Israel, the stupidity of Middle Eastern wars, the stupidity of sanctions against Russia inspired by the lying, indecent Browder… But there is no popular movement.

    But a mean IQ of 110 is not enough to explain Jewish achievement (Nisbett 2009:181).[42] It is likely that Jews also have a geographic advantage. Since the Enlightenment and particularly in the twentieth century, European Jews have been highly concentrated in major urban centers (Warsaw, Berlin, Frankfurt, Vienna, Paris, New York City, Los Angeles, etc.). These areas tended to have the infrastructure to support intellectual achievement. Indeed, even without postulating high Jewish IQ, from their location alone we would expect them to be overrepresented in intellectual endeavors.

    http://www.unz.com/article/judaism-as-a-group-evolutionary-strategy/#p_4_2

    I read the Gelman piece again, and this section stood out to me:

    First, the geography. Typically over 40% of Harvard College students come from New England and the mid-Atlantic, a group of states that includes 48% of American Jews but only 21% of the white population.

    In comparison, Jewish admissions in competitive west coast colleges such as Stanford and the University of California are much lower, reflecting that they are drawing from a different geographic distribution of applicants.

    http://andrewgelman.com/2013/02/12/that-claim-that-harvard-admissions-discriminate-in-favor-of-jews-after-checking-the-statistics-maybe-not/#comment-142949

    Both Cofnas and Gelman keep emphasizing geography as one of the main explanations for Jewish overrepresentation at Harvard, Yale, etc.

    What they don’t seem to factor in though, is that the Haredi community is almost exclusively based in the Northeast and they, currently, make up about 10% of the total U.S. Jewish population, therefore they are about 20% of the northeastern Jewish population.

    The United States is home to the second largest Haredi population, which has a growth rate on pace to double every 20 years. In 2000, there were 360,000 Haredi Jews in the US (7.2 per cent of the approximately 5 million Jews in the U.S.); by 2006, demographers estimate the number had grown to 468,000 or 9.4 per cent.
    [...]
    Most American Haredi Jews live in the greater New York metropolitan area.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haredi_Judaism#United_States

    The same applies in the UK to an even greater degree:

    In 1998, the Haredi population in the Jewish community of the United Kingdom was estimated at 27,000 (13% of affiliated Jews).[158] The largest communities are located in London, particularly the Haredi community of Stamford Hill, and in the Greater Manchester areas of Salford, and Prestwich, as well as in the Jewish community of Gateshead. A 2007 study asserted that three out of four British Jewish births were Haredi, who then accounted for 17% of British Jews, (45,500 out of around 275,000).[9] Another study in 2010 established that there were 9,049 Haredi households in the UK, which would account for a population of nearly 53,400, or 20% of the community.[190][191] The Board of Deputies of British Jews has predicted that the Haredi community will become the largest group in Anglo-Jewry within the next three decades

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haredi_Judaism#United_Kingdom

    Since Haredi Jews mostly don’t attend regular universities and pursue religious rather than intellectual/scientific studies, even though they are mostly based in “major urban centers”, at least 10% of the Jewish community, in the northeastern United States and in the United Kingdom likely closer to 20%, would not apply to elite universities, which makes the Jewish overrepresentation at the Ivy League, etc. even starker than Mr. Unz documented:

    These are figures from Israel, but they probably, more or less, apply to Haredis worldwide:

    Despite this increase, the percentage of young Haredim (ages 25-35) who are studying or have studied for a bachelor’s degree is still substantially lower than in Israel’s other sectors: only 8% of Haredi men and 15% of Haredi women are pursuing or hold an academic degree.

    Source: http://taubcenter.org.il/is-getting-in-enough-haredim-in-higher-education/

    At 45 births per 1,000 people in 2015, Lakewood’s birth rate is more than double the next highest municipality in the state and four times the state average. The huge figures are tied to fast-growing Orthodox Jewish community, which has also made it one of the fastest growing towns in the state.

    You are making large-scale generalizations

    Maybe, but see next.

    You are assuming that proles lack

    Also maybe; but a warning:

    “When a statement is challenged by making an ad hominem attack on its author, it is important to draw a distinction between whether the statement in question was an argument or a statement of fact (testimony). In the latter case the issues of the credibility of the person making the statement may be crucial.”

    Moving on, to the “Bernays haze:”

    Q: Did Corvinus, or anyone research it? My surmised A: No, so I’ll help; I first found Bernays in 2008 in The Century of the Self, but this may be a better [certainly faster] intro:

    “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.”

    There is a lie in there, surrounding “must cooperate” – it’s simply not true – but worse, worst: “an invisible government.” The latter is what I term ‘deep state’ tyranny; the foul, unelected and criminal puppet-string manipulators.

    The lie-cloud they choke the sheople’s minds with is deliberately ‘spiced’ with scientifically designed psychological propaganda, and that’s what does the majority of dumbing-down damage.

    Now, we can do some ‘back-tracking,’ starting from the latest exploit, with Mme May’s “big lie.” Q: Is the central allegation = Russians [if not Putin himself] poisoning an ex-spy and his daughter plausible and/or believable? My A: No [for a proof, see the tale of the 1st responder 'clearing the daughter's airways' and hanging around for 30mins], your opinion may differ. But we can see an associated technique being employed, namely the many men in highest-visibility hazchem suits, deployed primarily to trigger fear in ‘the proles.’

    The next way-point on our trip into the past is this quote of a quote:

    «The aide said that guys like me were ‘in what we call the reality-based community,’ which he defined as people who ‘believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.’»

    One very interesting thing here is “the reality-based community” and its implication, that there is another state possible, namely one that is *not* reality-based.

    A ‘perfect’ example of a Bernays haze psyop is this:

    a young Kuwaiti girl known only as “Nayirah” appeared in front of a congressional committee and testified that she witnessed the mass murdering of infants, when Iraqi soldiers had snatched them out of hospital incubators and threw them on the floor to die. Her testimony became a lead item in newspapers, radio and TV all over the US

    Now just a few names; Göring, Goebbels, Hitler. All evoke the N-word, but here, we’re interested in propaganda, and “the Big lie:”

    “The great masses of the people… will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one”

    ~Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf

    But there’s more where that came from:

    “But it remained for the Jews, with their unqualified capacity for falsehood, and their fighting comrades, the Marxists, to impute responsibility for the downfall …”

    OK; we can now proceed to the ultimate lie, actually two, and they are true whopper-assertions:

    1. That some supernatural god exists, and

    2. That eternal life after death exists.

    A 3rd point: That humans may believe something based on zero information. I do not, repeat for emphasis, do not so believe. People who do have corrupted minds; it’s a bit like ‘cognitive dissonance;’ once so breached, such minds are susceptible to further lies, and [along with my knowledge of the Bernays haze], my mind being free of this ‘defect’ explains

    what makes me “woke,” how I am not one of the “duped”

In the latter case the issues of the credibility of the person making the statement may be crucial.”

    Absolutely. And when one critically examines the thought process and work of Edward Bernays’, one takes into account his continuous self-promotion. He “sold” his ideas. Now, was he being objective or subjective in showing how people operate? In other words, to what extent are we suppose to trust his motives?

    “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society.”

    It is actually important in ANY society throughout human history, and in particular it has been a phenomenon every since Gutenburg introduced mechanical movable type printing to Europe. And it is not “manipulation”, but it is the influence of thoughts, which may or may not incorporate duplicity.

    “Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”

    Except it is other than an “unseen mechanism”. People are quite aware of the propaganda machine.
    And it is not an “invisible government”. Rather, there are competing interests who vie for the public’s attention on a wide range of matters, and offer information for consumption and digestion.

    “We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.”

    Largely by people and companies and politicians and groups, in some cases by names we have never heard of.

    “This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.”

    The author of the quotation is arguing from a false premise. He or she assumes that it is the “logical result” and how our “democratic society is organized”. It is certainly is possible, but not necessarily likely or absolutely certain.

    “There is a lie in there, surrounding “must cooperate” – it’s simply not true – but worse, worst: “an invisible government.” The latter is what I term ‘deep state’ tyranny; the foul, unelected and criminal puppet-string manipulators.”

    It would appear that you are ASSUMING that there is this “deep state tyranny”, and as a result, that people in general are being manipulated by unforeseen forces, or if they do foresee it, they lack the intelligence or wherewithal to not be doped/

    “The lie-cloud they choke the sheople’s minds with is deliberately ‘spiced’ with scientifically designed psychological propaganda, and that’s what does the majority of dumbing-down damage.”

    Are you part of the flock known as “sheep”? Or are you immune to the propaganda machine? If yes, what makes you different compared to those who are being hornswoggled?

    “Is the central allegation = Russians [if not Putin himself] poisoning an ex-spy and his daughter plausible and/or believable? My A: No [for a proof, see the tale of the 1st responder 'clearing the daughter's airways' and hanging around for 30mins], your opinion may differ.”

    Exactly. Opinions differ. But it is yet to be determined whether Putin was or was not behind this event. Given Putin’s past, it certainly is within the realm of possibility that he was involved.

    “But we can see an associated technique being employed, namely the many men in highest-visibility hazchem suits, deployed primarily to trigger fear in ‘the proles.”

    OR, we assume that politicians are employing such techniques merely for their own purposes, as opposed to leaders providing the masses with information that they themselves can vet.

    “A ‘perfect’ example of a Bernays haze psyop is this…”

    Engaging in atrocity propaganda does not mean that atrocities are non-existent or occurring on a small-scale. Given our media today, both mainstream and alternative, Journalists (professional) and journalists (bloggers), there is a concerted effort vet those stories that come out and inform the public as to their accuracy.

    ““The great masses of the people… will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one””

    There is truth to that statement. So is it not possible that you are also falling prey to it as well?

    “OK; we can now proceed to the ultimate lie, actually two, and they are true whopper-assertions:
    1. That some supernatural god exists, and 2. That eternal life after death exists.”

    That is a matter of belief. It is a lie to those who do not believe. It is the truth to those who do believe. Feel free to be skeptical.

    “People who do have corrupted minds; it’s a bit like ‘cognitive dissonance;’ once so breached, such minds are susceptible to further lies, and [along with my knowledge of the Bernays haze], my mind being free of this ‘defect’ explains”

    No, you, like everyone else, is influenced by propaganda and confirmation bias. Saying that your “mind is free of this defect” is other than believable, as we are all impacted by it, some more than others. Your knowledge of the Bernays haze, and your arguments defending it, is evidence that you are affected by propaganda.

    By developing and promoting these movements, Jews supposedly played a necessary role in the ascendancy of liberalism and multiculturalism in the West.

    Clearly the Jews have promoted tribalism. Intellectually pushing people into tribalness – pitting tribal group against tribal group is their stock and trade. Jews cleverly building hate between groups is their source of power.

    The Christian Western culture says, “do no harm.” Clearly the Jews do harm with their tribal behavior. Their mendacious endless war culture is doing great harm. It is never smart to do harm.

    Cultures advance on “right and wrong” not “smart and dumb.” Smart and dumb is a false argument. Cultures that do the “right thing”, the “truthful thing” advance.

    China has had a billion smart people for thousands of years and yet it was backwards. Now they are borrowing what less smart “right and truthful” Europeans use (and claiming superiority).

    The Chinese had an inferior culture. So do the current Jews!

    The Jews are creating a new lie – it says, “Jews are biologically smarter, so shut up – just let the Jew rule you.” This is another “chosen” type lie. (Being verbally aggressive is not a measure of the whole person.)

    The proof of Jew inferiority is Israel – it is hated around the world because of its backwards tribal morals. What a bunch of screwups – they had the sympathy of the world and pissed it away.

    Agree with you. It is quite obvious that IQ tests do not test intellectual ability but rather intellectual achievement. So by calling them “intelligence” tests as if they test an innate or even genetic level of intellectual ability is a mistake.

    The other mistake you mention is of course the notion that genetics plays an inherent part of intellectual ability. While persons with syndromes of various types which affect the brain negatively (Downs Syndrome), or how you mention certain physical ailments which causes people to live sedentary lifestyles which increases intellectual activity, both of which can be due to an either direct genetic cause (the former) or indirect genetic cause (the latter), what is not proven is there being positive direct genetic factor. The genetic differences in people is limited to shape, color, size, and so on. Intellectual ability is not based on direct genetic differences unless it is in the negative direction as in Downs Syndrome. For an average person in any race the genetic differences do not correlate to the mind, which is in fact not the same as the brain.

    The mind is not material, genetics are material. These are two different things that are related, but in the sense that a radio is related to the sound coming from it. The source of the sound is not the radio, but the radio is needed to hear it, and if the radio is broken to whatever degree it will affect the sound. The brain is like a radio, the mind is the sound, literally. The mind is thought-sound, that is all it is. You hear the mind but you do control or create thought. If you think you do, try to explain how to create a thought, or how to force a memory to appear. You can explain neither, this is because the mind is not not what most people think it is. Thoughts are not under your control. Try to explain how to create a thoughts…..go ahead….You simply cannot. No one can. Thoughts are not caused by us, thoughts happen to us. Caused by something else entirely.

    Apple’s Tim Cook rebukes Zuckerberg over Facebook’s business model

    Apple’s chief executive, Tim Cook, issued a harsh rebuke of Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook’s business model on Wednesday, saying that detailed profiles of individuals compiled by internet platforms should not exist.

    “We could make a ton of money if we monetized our customers, if our customers were our product,” Cook said in an interview with Recode and MSNBC that will air on 6 April. “We’ve elected not to do that … We’re not going to traffic in your personal life. Privacy to us is a human right, a civil liberty.”

    Cook also said that it is past time to regulate Facebook. “I think the best regulation is no regulation, is self-regulation,” he said. “However, I think we’re beyond that here.”

    Two points. First, I am not everyone. Little Jews are fools to think that they will not be held accountable for what the Big Jews have done.

    The second point is that there is a collective guilt on the part of the Jews. Most Jews are true tribal members. No matter their stripe, they irrationally support all Jews. The Little Jews have done nothing to reign in the Big Jews. They are loyal to the Zuckerbergs of this world.

    Actually, this one is somewhat straightforward.

    Hold everyone to the EXACT same moral, qualifications and judgment standards. No preferences, no passes, no regard for any past history whatsoever. Someone points out the Colonial Era – you retort “It’s the current year”. – and you say “That was then and there, this is here and now”. If they froth at the mouth, why all the better.

    Ignore unfounded slander and libel, you should not have to be on the defense against hysterical cries of racism and anti-Semitism if it simply isn’t true. That is Anglo-Saxon tradition, isn’t it? The burden must be on the accuser, not the accused.

    And be vigilant legally and institutionally against any sort of in-group religious, geographical, occupational, ethnic or class-based “networking”, preferential treatment or nepotism. The merest suggestion that promotions and hiring or acceptance at universities is not completely impartial should be the subjected to vigorous investigation, and if needed legal punishment.

    I believe that all these measures will weed out those who are unfit to have success, wealth or power, and would allow the meritocratic ideals to once again rule our society, (if they ever did).

    Anyway, that’s just a start.

    The article makes a reference to the suggestion by Cochran, Hardy and Harpending that Ashkenazi Jewish IQ would be heterozygote advantage of some recessive lethal alleles. This suggestion is provably wrong and should not be repeated any longer. If there would be heterozygote advantage in a two allele system where one allele is recessive and lethal, the carrier frequency p and the disease prevalence q would relate in first order as q=0.75p^2, but measurements show that they relate as
    q=0.25p^2, which is the result without heterozygote advantage. You find a mathematical analysis of this system in

    http://www.pienisalaliittotutkimus.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/recessive_advantage_paper.pdf

    If not interested in the calculations, just scan the text. It is shown that heterozygote advantage cannot explain Ashkenazi IQ, nor persistance of recessive lethal alleles, but a new mechanism is proposed that can explain the latter.
