In the second half of the 20th Century, New York City experimented with taking progressivism seriously for a relatively brief period of time, with catastrophic results. But New Yorkers tend to be smart, pushy, and self-interested -- as exemplified by a certain New York native in the news fairly frequently these days. So, New York... Read More
... not much. The Daily Mail newspaper had a reporter get a job as a maid at the Turin hotel where the annual secret Bilderberg conference was held.

From the Wall Street Journal today: For background, my review, "Blood Simple," in Taki's Magazine of Carreyrou's Bad Blood is here.
From the New York Times: What happens after 8th grade that makes boys and girls more different? Puberty. The biggest male>female gap in math is in the small Montgomery Township, NJ. ...

From my new book review in Taki's Magazine: Blood Simple by Steve Sailer June 13, 2018 Once the reelected Obama administration gave the okay for the diversity industry to begin shaking down Silicon Valley like it does everybody else, we began to read over and over that the reason there are few female tech founders...

Jim Flynn of Flynn Effect fame has been pointing out recently that in some places where rising IQ scores were best documented, such as Scandinavian countries with universal male conscription, his namesake phenomenon has seemed to go in reverse in recent years.

The best ball-striker in golf is likely 6'4" Dustin Johnson, who found himself in the last fairway in Sunday's tournament in Memphis with a 4 shot lead and 171 yards to the 18th hole. Johnson's not a great putter, so perhaps he was worried about seven-putting and losing the tournament. Fortunately, he came up with... Read More

From The Tablet: Lehmann, editor of Quillette, finds the to-do over cultural appropriation to be fairly baffling. But I think it's more understandable as resentment that you don't get a check in the mail for use of your group's intellectual property rights. Congress treats the heirs of individual creators very nicely: while F. Scott Fitzgerald's... Read More
A giant article in The Atlantic compiles every imaginable cliche about why Baltimore being the way it is is Your Fault. In The Atlantic, the problems of inner city blacks are always due to "segregation;" the implied solution is always for the government to subsidize sending them to to remote white suburbs and towns, coincidentally...

I'm going to bed. What's happening?
An iSteve reader writes: I’m right-handed and I fold my arms with my left arm on top. It took me several tries to force myself to fold my arms with my right arm on top. This may have to do with me being right-handed: I fold my arms by having my right hand come up... Read More
From CalMatters: Some people have questioned why it takes the state of California most of a month after an election to count the vote, when countries like Paraguay, Laos, and Sierra Leone usually get it over and done with in a few days. But there's good news on the horizon for impatient California election watchers.... Read More
From the Washington Post opinion section: "Seen in this indisputably true context, it seems logical to hate men" -- Take that, Aristotle, Boole, and Frege! Your male logic is, like, over.

With the Canadian Prime Minister's socially constructed eyebrows in the news, it's time to look back on this report from last July. From The Beaverton: Without warning, the Prime Minister put down his guitar and said “Check this, I’m ‘bout to wreck this!” Mr. Trudeau then ran toward the fire, but tripped when his flip...

Here's an amusing NYT article: We are Shocked, SHOCKED to learn that Kris Kobach, the GOP's top legal expert on immigration law, expressed an opinion on putting a citizenship query in the Census: The NYT accuses Kobach, a Kansas elected official, of engaging in the high crime of "political lobbying." Kobach sent a couple of... Read More
It's hard to keep track of the supporting arguments these days, yet the overall policy proposal is always the same. From Nature: And yet Carl Zimmer's new book on heredity She Has Her Mother's Laugh, explains that genetic variation is so trifling -- a mere 15%! -- that we should just ignore race. Which is...

By Dylan [email protected]@vox.com Jun 7, 2018, White people become significantly less likely to support welfare programs when told that black people might benefit from them. That’s a crucial conclusion from a newly... Read More
C'mon, ACLU, think big! Instead of just funding more Starbucks-style Diversity Sensitivity Training, we need legislation making it illegal for whites to call the cops on blacks. Let's dream of a future for our grandchildren like this: We could call it The Above-the-Law Law. Here would be a good spokesman for the Above-the-Law Law: Bob... Read More
Every four years, the World Festival of Nationalism (the World Cup soccer tournament) rolls around, and Americans are told that soccer is all about cosmopolitanism. From the Washington Post: Martinez is a Mexico-born Conquistador-American opinion journalist. Donald Trump may be the “America First” president, but his youngest son is a rather worldly sports fan.

From The Tablet: I don't actually pay attention to Spy vs. Spy stuff, so don't ask me if this article makes any sense.

As we all know, in America we need more immigrants to bring us vibrant restaurant cuisine. In France, where they have pretty good restaurants, they need immigrants to win the World Cup.

iSteve commenter Doug offers a novel political strategy suggestion: What's the political effect of more marijuana smoking?
Genetic differences in dog breeds:
In my Taki's Magazine review of Carl Zimmer's new book on heredity, She Has Her Mother's Laugh, I trot out my dusty old casino analogy response to Richard Lewontin's famous 85-15 argument about why race more or less doesn't exist genetically: Durant, who scored 43 in game 3, isn't as spindly as he used to...

From the New York Times: I'm trying to figure out how much more optimistic Pinker would be and pessimistic Taleb would be if they switched exercise routines.
You can motivate Californians to turn out to vote in large numbers in a Presidential election against the hated New Yawker they've been sick of seeing on TV since 1986, but can you get them to turn out in a complicated Off-Year Primary? From the Los Angeles Times: At least you can't say Antonio Villaraigosa... Read More
From the New York Times: Ms. Carlson launched her fabulous career on TV by winning the Miss America contest in a swimsuit back in the 1980s. That was fine back then, but Ms. Carlson is here to assure us that today's young women definitely don't want to get a leg up the career ladder by... Read More

I sometimes use Social Justice Jihadi. Or how about this?
From the New York Times: Pitting minority against minority is just wrong. In contrast, pitting all minorities against whites is The Arc of the Moral Universe Bending Toward Justice. If they can afford "years of test prep" are they really that poor? People in New York
Various states have been having elections. What happened and why?
I am a big fan of Jewish self-awareness, but it's in increasingly short supply in recent years.

I've remarked in the past on how nobody is much concerned against major league baseball's bigotry against left-handed catchers, even though there is no agreed upon rationalization for why no lefthander has caught in the big leagues since the 1980s. Today the New York Yankees drafted in the first round (23rd pick overall) a high... Read More

High-end golf has kind of given up on the Tiger Woods Era dream of diversity and the mass market, and is turning into a sort of WASP ethnic pride parade.
