    If I were a racist, I’d be inclined to notice the similarities between how mass shooters behave in America and general propensity for Whites to lean towards homicidal impotence.

    But I’m not. Nothing to see here.

    Doctor who made music videos in operating room facing several malpractice lawsuits

    Boutte refused to answer Channel 2 consumer investigator Jim Strickland’s questions about five malpractice settlements, four pending lawsuits against the doctor, and more than 20 videos previously posted on YouTube...According to court records Liburd’s mother, Icilma Cornelius, saw Boutte for a liposuction and a panniculectomy...She suffered permanent brain damage and will need care for the rest of her life.

    The news coverage of Harry and Meghan this week has been nauseating. It’s clear that she’s going to be getting many years of Obama style news coverage. She already is. It’s almost like the divine right of immunity to criticism was resurrected from the graveyard of history.

    “Nauseating” Really?

    Tiresome, I’d agree with, but nauseating is a bit much dude. She’s a girl of no power getting a fairytale wedding, maybe care less?

  • From the New York Times Opinion section: It’s Benjamin Netanyahu’s World Now By Anshel Pfeffer Anshel Pfeffer (@AnshelPfeffer) is a writer for Haaretz and the author of “Bibi: The Turbulent Life and Times of Benjamin Netanyahu.” May 18, 2018 Nearly every day it seems that another dream comes true for Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu:...
  • @Svigor

    He has also allowed Israel to attack Iranian bases and weapons depots in Syria, and even to bomb Russian-built antiaircraft batteries.
     
    Selling munitions to one friend, then letting your other friend blow them up, so your one friend has to buy more muntions...it sounds like pretty good work, if you can get it.

    He has successfully defied the Western liberal human rights agenda, focusing instead on trade and security. Israel’s success as a regional economic and military power is proof in their eyes that the illiberal approach can prevail.
     
    It's almost as if Jews hold themselves to much lower standards than the ones they impose on Whites.

    He has spent more time than any of them on the geopolitical stage, winning election after election.
     
    It's almost as if Jews elect Jewish ethnonationalists to multiple terms in their country, instead of trying to impeach even populists, like they do here.

    The notion that Trump is imitating Netanyahu is unthinkable.
     
    I think a lot of Jewish animus against Christianity is because it took Jewish mojo and universalized it. Jews are probably even less comfortable with the idea of having their ethnonationalist mojo universalized.

    Gosh, it’s this sort of stupidity that dooms your cause.

    Think of it like this, Jewish Nationalists manage to dominate your society, why don’t yours?

    "Think of it like this, Jewish Nationalists manage to dominate your society, why don’t yours?"

    Because Jewish Nationalists also rule the USA.
    , @J.Ross
    "Jewish Nationalists*" literally have the support of the government, and anyone who self-identifies as a white nationalist instantly earns the militant and unforgiving attention of the same government. I'd like to see how many "Jewish Nationalists" there would be in an even playing field. It's a credit to the cause that there are so many white nationalists with the pressure against them. However, almost all media reports on white nationalism, especially warnings about marked increase, are hysteria.

    *This must mean "Imperialists," since a nationalist would not be interfering in our country.

    Good point. It's an indication of their relationship with reality. A piece of text isn't there to communicate information, true or not. It's there to sound good, to be entertaining, to spark the right emotions. In the same way that a superhero movie is a good watch.

    It also says something about solipsism. The text and its contents, existing outside of me, aren't good or bad. What's important is that me me meeee was reading it.

    You could go even further and see a connection with how people have lost the ability to discuss anything that isn't their own emotions about the thing that they're supposedly discussing.

    Also, Spain, once the greatest power in Europe, became one of the poorest and most backward.
     
    Does this really bother any Spaniards or Latinos? Spain fell behind because it was so successful in discovering and conquering huge swaths of the earth, winning the lucrative galleon trade, right? And today, it's a first world country full of beautiful architecture, plus ultramodern infrastructure such as bullet trains. It should feel inferior to whom exactly, now? Great Britain?

    Sometimes, the comments here can be smart, most times they’re usually ignorant. OP got too lost in the theory he missed that he’d wandered far up his arse.

    I mean if you’re going to make a dig at European decline, Greece is wearing neon signs.

When one stops to think about it, it strikes me that the Jews flourish best behind borders: Israel, jobs like money-lending being fenced off, connections whilst exempt from white guilt e.t.c

    This is a non-problem.

    We are rapidly approaching the point whereat it no longer makes any sense for anybody to emigrate, as the cost/benefit analysis does not support it. Why move to a foreign continent where conditions are no better when you can just stay where you already know the place and the people?

    Also, Africa's projected population growth over the next century is completely fictitious. Africa's population growth is entirely dependent on Western aid; and as the West will shortly no longer be able even to support itself, it surely will not support Africa as well. Those billions of Africans will never be born, so there is no need to worry about them.

    Finally, anybody who thinks that Africa will "develop" and stabilize into a high-income, high-education, low-fertility socioeconomic pattern needs to get real. Africa possesses neither the physical capital nor the human capital to do this. It has no access to credit, nothing to trade except depleting mineral reserves, and nothing to offer the rest of the world. If Africans in the West have not WASPified themselves in 500 years, it beggars belief to think that Africans in Africa will do so. Besides, the idea that the very poison which killed the West ought to be recommended to Africa as a cure for its particular "ills" is troubling and perverse. It is actually quite the other way around. The West needs to beef up its fertility and stop wasting its time with pointless "development" if it is to survive.

    The best, sanest, most successful, and most natural African policy is to simply forget about it, cut it off, consign it to terra incognita. There is absolutely nothing to be gained by meddling with it. We do not need Africa and we cannot help Africa. The time has come to just leave it be. Anything else is an ego trip.

    Now, this is an attitude I can get behind.

    Sweden and Switzerland experienced long periods of neutrality and prosperity, staying out of both world wars.

    Europe had a learning curve when it came to modern weapons. Germany and Italy were entirely new nations. There were population pressures (they should have encouraged emigration). The countries were still in the process of industrializing, changing rapidly and lifting masses out of poverty. Militant nationalism arguably came from state-schools and being able to borrow money, not essentials of nations, or nationalism.

    Well sort of.

    The point of nationalism is to create a good life and future for ourselves and our families, by defining for a group of "your people" that is larger than merely family, clan, tribe--but bonded by language, culture, history and shared descent--and thus stronger and more capable of both defending ourselves and building for the future.

    Obviously, the first requirement of securing a good life and future is being able to defend ourselves and our territory from invasion, so yeah in that sense the "point" of nationalism is fighting other nations. But that's just a human reality--if you don't defend yourself someone else takes your shit away.


    Not only is “goldilocks” ahistorical, it’s also strange why self-purported human biological “realists” would regard it as realistic. Globalist domination via supranational organizations and commerce seems more realistic than some kumbaya world of nations that don’t behave like nations do.
     
    This part of your comment is just nonsense.

    Of course "goldilocks" is "ahistorical"--humans fight, that's what they do. But the nation state has been a huge upgrade. Once nations exist, with a defined population and a defined border nationalism has produced more "goldilocks" than any other system. The examples are numerous. The history of the United States for instance. Fighting to establish the nation, fighting with Canada and Mexico over final dilineation of the border--ok, the unfortunate Civil War thing--but then a whole lot of goldilocks.

    This bit seems particularly weird:


    Globalist domination via supranational organizations and commerce seems more realistic than some kumbaya world of nations that don’t behave like nations do.
     
    Supranational organizations have a name--"empire". Supranational--i.e. empire--has a terrible track record. Empires are *always* fighting because they are controlling people *who do not want to be in the empire.* And always in conflict with other empires over territory because ownership of a particular piece of territory--absent nationalism--is arbitrary.

    The great 20th century wars essentially all revolved around supranational empire. Nations rebelling against being in empires. Existing empire locking up economic opportunities out of the reach of rising nations, and rising nations chaffing against this attempting to re-order and create their own imperial domains. Various supranational coalitions created to counter other supranational coations and thus fighting cold or hot all over the world.

    In contrast, the greatest peace and prosperity Europe has seen, was created after WWII, when borders were redrawn to more accurately reflect real "nations" and people who were in the wrong place--an issue in starting previous conflicts--were moved into their appropriate nations. (The place that didn't get this nationalist treatment--the balkans--was the source of the next war.)

    Europe enjoyed unprecendented peace and prosperity ... so of course elites have been busy wrecking it with pie in the sky "supranationalism" and waving foreign peoples in to screw up more or less coherent nations. No one who is both intellectually honest and in their right mind thinks this is actually making Europe more peaceful.

    Nationalism--coherent peoples with defined territories--has at least the *potential* for peaceful co-existence. Anything else--"supranationalism"--were control has no organic basis but is simply the result of arbitrary power relations means what it always means ... eventual conflict.

    The whole point of nationalism is to fight other nations. There’s no point in it otherwise
     
    The point of nationalism is so that you can have a coherent political discourse where the common feeling of the polity allows for a fair degree of common purpose.

    For example, the rich can want to pay higher taxes so their poor can live better. Also, the poor can want lower taxes so their rich can keep their money. Indeed, both can want the same thing at the same time and so they have a mutually dependent political discourse on how they want their society to be.

    This makes a much better place to live.

    In other words, nationalism is about creating a country where everybody gets more out than they put in. A bit like a great BBQ party, because it isn't only about who brings which drinks and what food, it is also about meaning. And with meaning it all works out much, much better and guests even bring more food and more drinks and you get Botswana instead of Nigeria.

    Not only is “goldilocks” ahistorical, it’s also strange why self-purported human biological “realists” would regard it as realistic. Globalist domination via supranational organizations and commerce seems more realistic than some kumbaya world of nations that don’t behave like nations do
     
    The 'realism' of the nationalism I describe above comes in when they recognise the world as it is. That there is not enough common feeling at the global level to form a coherent global polity, but actually, at the level of say Britain, a milennia-old, fabulously successful nation-state, there is.

    Indeed, by throwing it away on ideological internationalism, you at best end up at the BBQ where everybody only wants to eat their own, drink their own and refuses to talk. At which point, all social interactions must either be conducted through the procedures of a clunky administrative state or be exceptionally commodified and - even then - it all ends in mass fights and brawls and disaster.

    Humans have always had war. War stems from fighting for power. Nationalism makes control over power coherent and discrete. Nationalism makes war less likely.

    The Cold War was a product of imperialism, not nationalism.

    Since the end of Cold War 1.0 the dominant ideology has been American imperialism.

    The United States abandoned nationalism very very early in its history. For the past two centuries the U.S. has been a pure imperialist power.

    the Greeks weren’t being “Nationalist” that’s absurd, the idea of a Helene nation was a later historiographical invention
     
    Someone should tell Plato

    First of all, in regard to slavery? Do you think it right that Hellenes should enslave Hellenic States, or allow others to enslave them, if they can help? Should not their custom be to spare them, considering the danger which there is that the whole race may one day fall under the yoke of the barbarians?

    To spare them is infinitely better.

    Then no Hellene should be owned by them as a slave; that is a rule which they will observe and advise the other Hellenes to observe.

    Certainly, he said; they will in this way be united against the barbarians and will keep their hands off one another.
     

    Neither shall we offer up arms at the temples of the gods, least of all the arms of Hellenes, if we care to maintain good feeling with other Hellenes; and, indeed, we have reason to fear that the offering of spoils taken from kinsmen may be a pollution unless commanded by the god himself?

    Very true.

    Again, as to the devastation of Hellenic territory or the burning of houses, what is to be the practice?

    May I have the pleasure, he said, of hearing your opinion?

    Both should be forbidden, in my judgment; I would take the annual produce and no more. Shall I tell you why?

    Pray do.

    Why, you see, there is a difference in the names `discord' and `war,' and I imagine that there is also a difference in their natures; the one is expressive of what is internal and domestic, the other of what is external and foreign; and the first of the two is termed discord, and only the second, war.

    That is a very proper distinction, he replied.

    And may I not observe with equal propriety that the Hellenic race is all united together by ties of blood and friendship, and alien and strange to the barbarians?

    Very good, he said.

    And therefore when Hellenes fight with barbarians and barbarians with Hellenes, they will be described by us as being at war when they fight, and by nature enemies, and this kind of antagonism should be called war; but when Hellenes fight with one another we shall say that Hellas is then in a state of disorder and discord, they being by nature friends and such enmity is to be called discord.

    I agree.

    Consider then, I said, when that which we have acknowledged to be discord occurs, and a city is divided, if both parties destroy the lands and burn the houses of one another, how wicked does the strife appear! No true lover of his country would bring himself to tear in pieces his own nurse and mother: There might be reason in the conqueror depriving the conquered of their harvest, but still they would have the idea of peace in their hearts and would not mean to go on fighting for ever.

    Yes, he said, that is a better temper than the other.

    And will not the city, which you are founding, be an Hellenic city?

    It ought to be, he replied.

    Then will not the citizens be good and civilized?

    Yes, very civilized.

    And will they not be lovers of Hellas, and think of Hellas as their own land, and share in the common temples?

    Most certainly.

    And any difference which arises among them will be regarded by them as discord only--a quarrel among friends, which is not to be called a war?

    Certainly not.

    Then they will quarrel as those who intend some day to be reconciled? Certainly.

    They will use friendly correction, but will not enslave or destroy their opponents; they will be correctors, not enemies?

    Just so.

    And as they are Hellenes themselves they will not devastate Hellas, nor will they burn houses, not even suppose that the whole population of a city--men, women, and children--are equally their enemies, for they know that the guilt of war is always confined to a few persons and that the many are their friends. And for all these reasons they will be unwilling to waste their lands and raze their houses; their enmity to them will only last until the many innocent sufferers have compelled the guilty few to give satisfaction?

    I agree, he said, that our citizens should thus deal with their Hellenic enemies; and with barbarians as the Hellenes now deal with one another.

    Then let us enact this law also for our guardians:-that they are neither to devastate the lands of Hellenes nor to burn their houses.

    “If only we could get rid of nationalism, we could go back to the happy days of imperialism and ignorance!”

    That’s not what the article is saying, my read on it is that it’s an exploration of the myths underpinning the “imagined communities” we call nations. Also, the Greeks weren’t being “Nationalist” that’s absurd, the idea of a Helene nation was a later historiographical invention exhorting the Greeks to unite and plunder the wealth but soft Persia…hence works like the Anabasis which is basically code for “see what united Hellenes can do against Barbarian hordes”.

    Think of it this way, the Franco-British alliance against Hitler and communism did not nationalism imply, as is well known, after the war, France went back to pursuing its interests which in De Gaulle’s view necessitated that perfidious Albion be locked out of Europe.

    Absent America, perhaps its own Peloponnesian war would have followed….

    Someone should tell Plato

    First of all, in regard to slavery? Do you think it right that Hellenes should enslave Hellenic States, or allow others to enslave them, if they can help? Should not their custom be to spare them, considering the danger which there is that the whole race may one day fall under the yoke of the barbarians?

    To spare them is infinitely better.

    Then no Hellene should be owned by them as a slave; that is a rule which they will observe and advise the other Hellenes to observe.

    Certainly, he said; they will in this way be united against the barbarians and will keep their hands off one another.
     

    Neither shall we offer up arms at the temples of the gods, least of all the arms of Hellenes, if we care to maintain good feeling with other Hellenes; and, indeed, we have reason to fear that the offering of spoils taken from kinsmen may be a pollution unless commanded by the god himself?

    Very true.

    Again, as to the devastation of Hellenic territory or the burning of houses, what is to be the practice?

    May I have the pleasure, he said, of hearing your opinion?

    Both should be forbidden, in my judgment; I would take the annual produce and no more. Shall I tell you why?

    Pray do.

    Why, you see, there is a difference in the names `discord' and `war,' and I imagine that there is also a difference in their natures; the one is expressive of what is internal and domestic, the other of what is external and foreign; and the first of the two is termed discord, and only the second, war.

    That is a very proper distinction, he replied.

    And may I not observe with equal propriety that the Hellenic race is all united together by ties of blood and friendship, and alien and strange to the barbarians?

    Very good, he said.

    And therefore when Hellenes fight with barbarians and barbarians with Hellenes, they will be described by us as being at war when they fight, and by nature enemies, and this kind of antagonism should be called war; but when Hellenes fight with one another we shall say that Hellas is then in a state of disorder and discord, they being by nature friends and such enmity is to be called discord.

    I agree.

    Consider then, I said, when that which we have acknowledged to be discord occurs, and a city is divided, if both parties destroy the lands and burn the houses of one another, how wicked does the strife appear! No true lover of his country would bring himself to tear in pieces his own nurse and mother: There might be reason in the conqueror depriving the conquered of their harvest, but still they would have the idea of peace in their hearts and would not mean to go on fighting for ever.

    Yes, he said, that is a better temper than the other.

    And will not the city, which you are founding, be an Hellenic city?

    It ought to be, he replied.

    Then will not the citizens be good and civilized?

    Yes, very civilized.

    And will they not be lovers of Hellas, and think of Hellas as their own land, and share in the common temples?

    Most certainly.

    And any difference which arises among them will be regarded by them as discord only--a quarrel among friends, which is not to be called a war?

    Certainly not.

    Then they will quarrel as those who intend some day to be reconciled? Certainly.

    They will use friendly correction, but will not enslave or destroy their opponents; they will be correctors, not enemies?

    Just so.

    And as they are Hellenes themselves they will not devastate Hellas, nor will they burn houses, not even suppose that the whole population of a city--men, women, and children--are equally their enemies, for they know that the guilt of war is always confined to a few persons and that the many are their friends. And for all these reasons they will be unwilling to waste their lands and raze their houses; their enmity to them will only last until the many innocent sufferers have compelled the guilty few to give satisfaction?

    I agree, he said, that our citizens should thus deal with their Hellenic enemies; and with barbarians as the Hellenes now deal with one another.

    Then let us enact this law also for our guardians:-that they are neither to devastate the lands of Hellenes nor to burn their houses.

    Of course, there was an ancient Phoenician nation, Carthage. (The article strangely seems to allow this, but only in discussing the historical "confusions" of the British and the Irish.)

    Carthage was, of course, destroyed, but Rome actually had to fight to bring this about. Subjugating Carthage was probably what turned Rome irrevocably into an empire (in the military, if not immediately the political sense).

    Calling Carthage a nation negates the very meaning of the word.

    Carthage was more akin to Austria-Hungary, a multicultural empire ruled by a Phoenician city State, dependent on an army of mercenaries to keep a motley crew of Iberians, Greeks and Libyans down.

    The very thing the idea of nationalism wanted to replace.

    There is a bizarre idea among cuckservatives that abortion providers should be punished, but not the women who willingly seek the provider's services. This of course only makes sense if you view women as fundamentally less agentic than men and thus less culpable for their crimes. While some people certainly do explicitly hold this view, cuckservatives vehemently deny it, so the fact that they think willing women shouldn't be punished for abortions but providers should is logically inconsistent.

    The explanation, of course, is that they're cucks afraid to upset women and white knights.

    Yes. At the time it justified huge government expenditure and programming in academia, but I have seen an Arbusto-worthy incuriosity coupled with an emotional nostalgia for a dishonestly idealized Soyuz. There is a feeling that overall, socialism won, and that the fall of the Soviet Union was a combination of illegitimate and deplorable Reaganite terrorism with the racial inferiority of the Slav. I hear special features all the time on BBC radio examining every last toenail claimed to have been ripped out by the Apartheid South African "regime." There is never any mention of the Soviet-sponsored Communist terrorists that government was fighting, let alone of the normality of terror and want in the Bolshevik empire itself. "The Americans" is about as rigorous as "Man Men" and, funnily enough, along the same lines. There is apparently lots of money for any film project showing the very small and non-representative "fun" side of Communism, such as "Goodbye, Lenin," but also now including wierd ersatz documentaries and cartoon clips on YouTube, many held up by younger Eastern Europeans who see Communism as a vague part of their heritage. About the best treatment of actually considering that communism wasn't fun in pop culture is still ("the Long Walk" and) "The Lives Of Others," which I cannot mention without thinking of "Baader Meinhof Complex." BMC is a very good movie and pretty accurate in general, but it is viciously propagandisticon some points. Leftist violence is depicted amorally (this is an important thing to watch for because it's also all over our propaganda programming. The idea is to be ostensibly condemning the act but actually intimidating the audience. Cf "The Counselor," both the overall story, but also in brief the Green Hornet's answer to the dog food saleswoman). Right-wing identification is depicted as partly justifying left-wing violence (these first two ideas were also on display in Mesrine -- Nazi collaboration is a moral crisis justifying crime, a rightwing journalist gets beaten and we're not saying it's right but we are going to take our time showing it). Most brazenly, no firearm in BMC is ever handled properly, not once, not even in the hands of a police officer or an instructor. Compare the depiction of firearms in Rumpole: the idea is to create a hysterical Overton kick in which guns are characterized as too inherently dangerous to have such a thing as a responsible use. tldr you'll shoot your eye out.
    The inpression I got from academics studying Soviet history is often that they thought theBolsheviks were well-intentioned but technically imprecise (and their judgment of the peasantry was often the same as that of the Bolsheviks).

    But, our 1992 "victory" brought about not a better America, but one in which many of us feel increasingly disaffected and uneasy about the future.

    To me, the Cold War is fascinating/horrifying because most people have no idea that the world really did almost end - twice! - in the 1980's, not to mention the tension of the early 1960's.

    India suffered about 30% more casualties in WW2 than WW1, while the British Empire as a whole suffered roughly half as many in WW2. So India's involvement was a much greater share of the British effort in WW2 (something like 15-20% of casualties), but obviously they were fighting primarily in the Pacific Theater, not Europe and North Africa.

    So if India sent more troops to Europe and the Middle East in WW1 than WW2, they weren't getting sent to the front. Unless this is somehow obfuscated by the statistics.

    Also, while the "flight from white" ensures that Turks are decidedly nonwhite for U.S. domestic political purposes, I observe that Erdogan would not appear much out of place in a lineup of Italian or Greek politicians. Look at a crowd shot of Turks and you will see a few who could pass as English or Germans, some who look more like Egyptian or Saudi Arabs, and a whole lot in between.

    I posit that if the Turks were Orthodox Christians, we would have no doubt that they are white.

    A point I'd add to what I wrote in my comment is that those groups that survive the onslaught of would-be conquerors presumably do so in no small part because they either have, or are quickly selected for, traits that allow them to put up resistance.

    If, say, IQ is such a trait, then being able to fight to a stalemate would be conquerors would attest to their rough equivalence to those invaders, either initially or after selection by elimination through combat of the less capable.

    This might explain, for example, basic similarity across subSaharan Africa in IQ, even though separate peoples still exist (combined with the general similarity of their ecological demands in Africa and cultural practices).

    Using your logic, then the Asians who weren’t able to fight the Europeans to a stalemate had lower IQs…we could accept that laughable proposition or go with weapons making the difference…unless of course it was IQ that led to the Roman quests and IQ that aided the Huns and Mongols, not you know, iron ships, varigated armour and the composite bow.

    That you place the Sahara along such “insuperable” barriers as oceans and the Himalayas shows either an incurious ignorance or the blindness of ideology.

    In reality, the paths trod through the Sahara across millennia which sent slaves and exotic animals north and which brought Moroccan columns to Songhai, the Red Sea/Indian ocean trade show the Sahara not to be the impenetrable barrier you describe. Also take the fact that even after the sea barrier was broken by the Portuguese in the 15th century, it took till the 19th/20th for the impulse of conquest to take hold.

    Zera Yacob is interesting as a subject in that a few people compare him to Rene Descartes. Of course, Yacob only wrote a 20 page autobiography with some philosophical questions in it. Descartes, meanwhile, wrote numerous dense philosophical works as well as many treatises on the natural sciences, including optics, chemistry, and music.

    To compare the two is ridiculous; it would be like comparing a session musician on an obscure single with a member of the Beatles.

    The fact is, Zera Yacob is advanced as Africa's answer to Descartes simply because of the dearth of African (read: black) thinkers and because he happens to be almost the only one to put pen to paper. His "treatise" is somewhat difficult to find because it is trivial and even slightly embarrassing.

    Descartes was reliant on a network of both publishers and admirers exhorting him to put his thoughts to paper, Yacob and no doubt other African thinkers did not have that.

    Reducing Africa to “read black” I find rather unacceptable. For starters, Black isn’t a monolith and that allows us pretence that Economic development hasn’t been linked to particular geographic spots–The Med and East Asia– until recently.

    Per the source, there are a grand total of 670k Nigerians in Europe and America. Let’s throw caution to the air and assume that 2m are illegals–an absurdity– that’s still less than 3m, How then is it possible for 31% to have regular contact with relatives in those countries? That would imply that there nearly 56m Nigerians have relations in Europe and America. How exactly do those numbers square?

  • @Twinkie

    You said military, I assumed veteran…easy enough error.
     
    Go back and read again. You have a habit reading into your mind what I did not write.

    Doubting in the absence of evidence? That would put my cultural milieu in line with the enlightenment.
     
    Low-trust cultures are not in line with the Enlightenment, because interpersonal and social interactions are not governed by the same "rules of evidence" as, say, science. Otherwise the costs and inefficiencies of social interactions and communication would be enormous and detrimental to cohesion and smooth functioning of society. And that is why countries such as, say, Sweden and Japan are high-trust societies despite prevalence of scientism in the academic sense.

    E.g the Japanese have been in the news recently for quite a bit of corporate rule-breaking.
     
    Yes, there is corruption in Japan, but it is orders of magnitude less prevalent than that in Africa. You are either stupid or intellectually dishonest if you don't understand (or pretend to not understand) the difference between scale/comparisons as opposed to on/off phenomena.

    I’m more inclined towards attributing the aforementioned attributes to a high degree of State control, which correlates with income.
     
    Nope. You are woefully ill-informed. North Korea has a much higher degree of state control than other societies, including South Korea, but it has appalling poverty.

    I’m saying that rather than looking across races, you really ought to be looking at income levels. Willing to bet that at equal income levels, crime rates are similar across races.
     
    You would lose that bet. In the United States, for example, even adjusting for income, blacks commit the most violent crimes per capita, then Hispanics, then whites, and then Asians. Race is a powerful predictor of crime, better than education levels, which in turn is a better predictor of crime than income levels.

    I will give you quick international example. In the aftermath of the Korean War, South Korea was in some rankings the third poorest country in the world after Sudan. However, its crime rate was much lower. The causes are likely genetic + environment.

    I’m also guessing a higher percentage of Japanese are in school than more hard drinking countries. More homework, less juveniles…
     
    Even when most Japanese were illiterate, they had a more orderly society than Africans. What you don't seem to understand is the rare obvious implication that both low criminality and higher studiousness (and later higher income) are correlated, because they are likely caused by the same variables (some function of genes and environment acting upon each other). It's for the same reason that, in the United States, for example, black children from families in the top income bracket perform similarly on the college entrance tests as white children from the lowest income bracket.

    a rather weird fetishization of Japanese culture.
     
    It's not weird at all. There is "fetishization" because there is much to admire in Japanese culture, for the same reason many East Asians "fetishize" about Europe and North America.

    Nice dodge with the US of A, but you don’t just control for among countries, but also for among the individuals within the country.
     
    You do realize that blacks and to a lesser extent Hispanics in the U.S. commit far more violent crimes than whites and Asians? Between 1980 and 2008, for example, blacks who make up only 13% of the population committed 52% of homicides (https://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/htus8008.pdf). The homicide rate in the U.S. would be in line with Europe if it had only whites and Asians.

    Brazil despite being middle-income has a higher crime rate than say Argentina–despite a roughly similar racial profile– due its high inequality ergo more poor people.
     
    "Roughly similar racial profile"? No. Brazil has a much greater fraction of the population that has African ancestry than Argentina does.* In fact, the high economic inequality in Brazil is HIGHLY RACIAL. Southern Brazil, which is heavily white (German) is prosperous. Black parts of Brazil are destitute and crime-ridden.

    *Argentina is much less black than Brazil, but has a far greater Amerindian demographic profile.

    I like how you don’t treat people as individuals, really something.
     
    More idiotic and transparent virtue-signaling.

    I am perfectly capable of separating evaluations of moral qualities of individuals and (average) national characteristics.

    Go back and read again. You have a habit reading into your mind what I did not write.

    You said Counter-terrorism, I assumed military ’cause they are who I know of who have been leading C-T ops on the continent, I apologise.

    Low-trust cultures are not in line with the Enlightenment…

    I doubted a specific anecdotal story, if a lack of gullibility is the result of my larger social sphere, I accept. P.S Re “costs and inefficiencies” the US seems to have done alright, perhaps because the larger society matters little in the place of singular institutions mitigating those faults? Hence Sports teams and the military integrating successfully before the larger society. So again, I’ll stick with my stance that it’s the quality of institutions that matter.

    Yes, there is corruption in Japan, but it is orders of magnitude less prevalent than that in Africa.

    Nope, here you skip the crux of my point. It was made in response to your assertion that “different races, on average, have different propensities toward rule-breaking, impulsivity, risk-aversion, time-orientation, etc.” I’m saying, holdup…where were those differing propensities once the societal rules governing Japanese society were loosened? Unless of course, they still play bayonet the baby in their spare time over there.

    Hence my assertion that while I admit these things are societal/cultural, racial, I think is a bit of a stretch. P.S you also think of societal changes, for example, the difference in risk aversion across generations. http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20170508-the-many-reasons-that-people-are-having-less-sex

    You do realize that blacks…

    Again, nice dodge, but as I said, but as is obvious from the next sentence in that paragraph, I was stating that you ought to also control for the crime statistics at individual income levels.

    Right, the black contribution to the ensuing disaster was pretty minor in terms of billions of dollars defaulted because black mortgages tended to be small due to low property values in black neighborhoods. The defaults in Detroit, for example, were widespread, but pretty trivial in dollar value in the big picture of things.

    In contrast, Hispanics tend to live in very expensive states, California, or moderately expensive states: Arizona, Nevada, and Florida. Immigration to those four states driving up demand, combined with restrictions on the supply of housing, caused a large majority of home value gains during the Housing Bubble and then dollars defaulted in the initial catastrophic wave of the Housing Bust. Later, the Housing Bust helped set off the Great Recession, which caused additional losses nationwide. But Michael Lewis's four Sand States are key to understanding the Bubble/Bust. And overestimation of the good things brought by Hispanic and Asian immigrant groups was the key mistake of the age. But to recognize that would undermine our most sacred value -- Diversity! -- so nobody understands much about what happened a decade ago.

    Asians tend to live in expensive states, so their defaults were surprisingly large in dollar terms as well.

    Pardon me, but from the graph, looks like it was the rise in Hispanic, Asian and White foreclosures that blew up the market. Black foreclosures being pretty much steady
     
    .


    What the graph shows is that right out of the gate--even during peak bubble--blacks had a default rate that was several times the other groups. We see this again and again and again whenever one drills into any lending statistics--making complete hash out of this bogus "discrimination!" nonsense the NYT is peddling yet again. Blacks are, on average, just much crappier credit risks than whites--and actually most other groups of people on the planet. High time preference, low conscientiousness does not make a good credit risk.

    But if you want to tag an ethnicity for the default crisis then the graph makes clear it's "Hispanics". Their number is much lower than blacks in 2006 and 2007. But once it's clear we've peaked in 2007 and their will be no "greater fool", no free money, and perhaps as their job framing or hanging drywall in yet more houses goes away, then the Hispanic rate skyrockets past the blacks in 2008 and we get the first bank failures and by September have a full blown financial crisis.


    Of course, let's be fair here. Hispanics aren't the cause of this, they are just pawns, responding more or less rationally to the incentives on offer.

    The people actually responsible for this are the people who have pushed:
    -- financialization; trading (and scamming) before producing
    -- carving up mortgages to trade creating more financial risk
    -- government subsidy to cover finance's ass
    -- minoritarianism (minorities good, whites bad)
    -- demands for more subsidies and legal coercion for minority lending
    -- "nation of immigrants" propaganda
    -- high immigrant inflows, driving up consumption and house prices, providing lots of selling and trading action and profits but destroying community and nation
    -- trashing rule of law--especially when it comes to immigration as "racist"

    Hispanics aren't responsible for turning the nation into a bazaar, pushing minoritarianism and massive immigration.

    Ahh, the old “I was a veteran” gag, which you know me enough to know I’ll just believe, right?
     
    While, yes, I did military service, that is not what I wrote. Try again.

    The fact that you immediately assume others are lying says a lot about the cultural milieu from which you hail.

    Now back to the original argument–which you’ve moved off differing tangents many times already– Japanese kids are drinking alcohol. FFS it’s the sort of adventurous living that comes with the first bout of teenage hormones.
     
    Look up "proxy" in social science research.

    Then, try this: http://www.nordicwelfare.org/PageFiles/29196/Drinking%20among%20Japanese%20youth%20-%20a%20paradox%20for%20theories%20of%20alcohol%20availability.pdf

    Quick summary: Despite the wide availability of alcohol vending machines in Japan, alcohol consumption by minors is comparatively low. Note: I am not saying no Japanese youngster drinks alcohol, but rather that, due likely to some combination of genetic and cultural reasons, they refrain from doing so even when they can "get away with it." The researcher attributes this to culture or, in his words, "collectivistic Japanese values," by which he seems to mean aversion to breaking rules and social norms even when no one is looking, in this particular context.

    It's obvious to most people on this website that, even controlling for family income, people - including youths - of different races, on average, have different propensities toward rule-breaking, impulsivity, risk-aversion, time-orientation, etc. It's not obvious to you, apparently, because you refuse to see the evidences.

    P.S No it “didn’t make the news”, those are obscure blogs, they were a direct response to the article you yourself linked.
     
    My article was written by foreigners marveling at the OVERALL culture of most Japanese, in other words, just how honest most Japanese are in returning what belongs to others.

    I don't doubt there are honest Nigerians, but this is not about exceptional individuals, but about the larger population-level observations. After all, I am pretty certain that murderers are in the minority in both Japan and Nigeria - it's just that murderous fraction of the population Japan is far more miniscule than in Nigeria.

    As for murder rate, America’s weirdness aside, that clearly correlates with income levels
     
    You can control for income levels and get wide divergences in homicide rates. Latin America and Africa are high, Northern Europe and East Asia are low. You can also see this by race in the United States.

    Unless of course, you believe slave driving Qataris are much better than the African villager you so disdain?
     
    I disdain them both for different reasons.

    Okay, let’s start at the top Capitan…

    While, yes, I did military service, that is not what I wrote. Try again.

    The fact that you immediately assume others are lying says a lot about the cultural milieu from which you hail.

    You said military, I assumed veteran…easy enough error. Doubting in the absence of evidence? That would put my cultural milieu in line with the enlightenment.

    It’s not obvious to you, apparently, because you refuse to see the evidences.

    Neither do you when it contradicts your views. E.g the Japanese have been in the news recently for quite a bit of corporate rule-breaking. In addition, how would you square their actions in their imperialist era?

    I’m more inclined towards attributing the aforementioned attributes to a high degree of State control, which correlates with income. I’m saying that rather than looking across races, you really ought to be looking at income levels. Willing to bet that at equal income levels, crime rates are similar across races.

    A Yakuza and a militant from the N/D for example are likelier to share a familial income level–differing societal scales taken into account of course– than the kids of Billionaires from both countries. Crime is about peer influence and opportunities afterall. I’m also guessing a higher percentage of Japanese are in school than more hard drinking countries. More homework, less juveniles…

    My article was written by foreigners marveling at the OVERALL culture of most Japanese, in other words, just how honest most Japanese are in returning what belongs to others.

    You’re a smart guy(gal?), I’m sure you’ve heard of implicit bias. People go to Japan expecting “OVERALL culture”, a function of anime and what is–we can be honest here– a rather weird fetishization of Japanese culture. But again, I’m willing to bet that the Norwegians aren’t petty thieves either. Bringing us back to the income thing.

    You can control for income levels and get wide divergences in homicide rates. Latin America and Africa are high, Northern Europe and East Asia are low.

    Nice dodge with the US of A, but you don’t just control for among countries, but also for among the individuals within the country. Brazil despite being middle-income has a higher crime rate than say Argentina–despite a roughly similar racial profile– due its high inequality ergo more poor people.

    I disdain them both for different reasons.

    I like how you don’t treat people as individuals, really something.

    You know, rather than bothering poor Steve–thanks BTW for your tolerance Mr Sailer– we could just exchange emails, but then you might show your “cultural milieu” (:

    Go back and read again. You have a habit reading into your mind what I did not write.

    Doubting in the absence of evidence? That would put my cultural milieu in line with the enlightenment.
     
    Low-trust cultures are not in line with the Enlightenment, because interpersonal and social interactions are not governed by the same "rules of evidence" as, say, science. Otherwise the costs and inefficiencies of social interactions and communication would be enormous and detrimental to cohesion and smooth functioning of society. And that is why countries such as, say, Sweden and Japan are high-trust societies despite prevalence of scientism in the academic sense.

    E.g the Japanese have been in the news recently for quite a bit of corporate rule-breaking.
     
    Yes, there is corruption in Japan, but it is orders of magnitude less prevalent than that in Africa. You are either stupid or intellectually dishonest if you don't understand (or pretend to not understand) the difference between scale/comparisons as opposed to on/off phenomena.

    I’m more inclined towards attributing the aforementioned attributes to a high degree of State control, which correlates with income.
     
    Nope. You are woefully ill-informed. North Korea has a much higher degree of state control than other societies, including South Korea, but it has appalling poverty.

    I’m saying that rather than looking across races, you really ought to be looking at income levels. Willing to bet that at equal income levels, crime rates are similar across races.
     
    You would lose that bet. In the United States, for example, even adjusting for income, blacks commit the most violent crimes per capita, then Hispanics, then whites, and then Asians. Race is a powerful predictor of crime, better than education levels, which in turn is a better predictor of crime than income levels.

    I will give you quick international example. In the aftermath of the Korean War, South Korea was in some rankings the third poorest country in the world after Sudan. However, its crime rate was much lower. The causes are likely genetic + environment.

    I’m also guessing a higher percentage of Japanese are in school than more hard drinking countries. More homework, less juveniles…
     
    Even when most Japanese were illiterate, they had a more orderly society than Africans. What you don't seem to understand is the rare obvious implication that both low criminality and higher studiousness (and later higher income) are correlated, because they are likely caused by the same variables (some function of genes and environment acting upon each other). It's for the same reason that, in the United States, for example, black children from families in the top income bracket perform similarly on the college entrance tests as white children from the lowest income bracket.

    a rather weird fetishization of Japanese culture.
     
    It's not weird at all. There is "fetishization" because there is much to admire in Japanese culture, for the same reason many East Asians "fetishize" about Europe and North America.

    Nice dodge with the US of A, but you don’t just control for among countries, but also for among the individuals within the country.
     
    You do realize that blacks and to a lesser extent Hispanics in the U.S. commit far more violent crimes than whites and Asians? Between 1980 and 2008, for example, blacks who make up only 13% of the population committed 52% of homicides (https://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/htus8008.pdf). The homicide rate in the U.S. would be in line with Europe if it had only whites and Asians.

    Brazil despite being middle-income has a higher crime rate than say Argentina–despite a roughly similar racial profile– due its high inequality ergo more poor people.
     
    "Roughly similar racial profile"? No. Brazil has a much greater fraction of the population that has African ancestry than Argentina does.* In fact, the high economic inequality in Brazil is HIGHLY RACIAL. Southern Brazil, which is heavily white (German) is prosperous. Black parts of Brazil are destitute and crime-ridden.

    *Argentina is much less black than Brazil, but has a far greater Amerindian demographic profile.

    I like how you don’t treat people as individuals, really something.
     
    More idiotic and transparent virtue-signaling.

    I am perfectly capable of separating evaluations of moral qualities of individuals and (average) national characteristics.
    , @Singh
    The Black high income murder rate is several times higher than the low income white one in USA।।

    That state Centralization reduces violence is well known & your point that if African have an iq of 80 post Flynn they can still do much better than present is also correct।।

    However, being Nigerian you're likely a recent christian convert & actually believe the liberal bs.

    I realise you are probably incapable of grasping such abstractions, but the things is us white peoples actually understand stewardship and responsibility for ecology; what's more, we actually give a damn about our children and other descendants.

    Nonsense. You white people have no children. If you did immigration wouldn’t be necessary to maintain the fiscal liquidity of your welfare State.

    As for responsibility and stewardship, I’m hoping you’re not American or Republican. Further, the idea of whites giving a “damn” about their descendants is the most ahistorical bullshit I’ve ever heard in my life.

    Let’s put this way, who slaughtered the flower of their youth at Somme and Stalingrad again?

    Bent double, like old beggars under sacks,
    Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge,
    Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs,
    And towards our distant rest began to trudge.
    Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots,
    But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind;
    Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots
    Of gas-shells dropping softly behind.

    Gas! GAS! Quick, boys!—An ecstasy of fumbling
    Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time,
    But someone still was yelling out and stumbling
    And flound’ring like a man in fire or lime.—
    Dim through the misty panes and thick green light,
    As under a green sea, I saw him drowning.

    In all my dreams before my helpless sight,
    He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning.

    If in some smothering dreams, you too could pace
    Behind the wagon that we flung him in,
    And watch the white eyes writhing in his face,
    His hanging face, like a devil’s sick of sin;
    If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
    Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,
    Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud
    Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues,—
    My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
    To children ardent for some desperate glory,
    The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est
    Pro patria mori.

    Let me make it very simple.

    In country A, 90% of people are good. 10% are murderers.

    In both countries, murderers are a small minority. But I can tell you the social (including criminal) conditions are going to be vastly different.

    That's fine, but it doesn't mean that 100% of people won't be affected by the 10% that are corrupt. And this is low-level corruption well beyond even third world countries; in some places in Pakistan, for example, you can expect to lose 10% of your income for bribes, etc. In Cameroon, it approached 90% and made business unviable. Corruption isn't even the right word for it, its legal robbery often enough and to the level that destroys the host. The honest, logical thing to do is to hide your income from would-be robbers, and essentially, participate in your own form of corruption(tax evasion).

    And speaking of....did you guys know that it's considered irredeemably racist to even hint that some countries (and continents) have higher birthrates than others? My guess is that this is because if we acknowledged such facts we might find ourselves on the road to doing something about them. And that would definitely be racist.

    As Tinys keeps reminding us, we'll all be gone soon--either dead of natural causes or, (he hopes) executed--because as we all know The Time for Reconciliation is Over. The one thing I can guarantee you is that the last white person on earth will, as the blade falls upon her lily-white neck, exclaim "Well at least I wasn't racist!"

    a few decades ago China had more than three times as many people as SSA, India around twice. The problem is that in this century the probably in SSA will probably grow to have three times as many people as India and China combined.

Members reminded him what he was asking of them. “He’s saying this to 25 members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus!” Representative Luis Gutiérrez, an Illinois Democrat, told me. “My mom came with a fifth-grade education. Someone stood up and said to him, ‘So you don’t think we should even be here?’ We’re the children of those parents. And we’re members of Congress.”

    Kelly’s active role in immigration policy, Whipple told me, was highly unusual for a chief of staff, setting Kelly apart from even otherwise partisan warriors like Dick Cheney, who served as chief to Gerald Ford, and Rahm Emanuel, the first to hold the position under Obama. “This is abnormal,” Whipple said.

    Africans don't just get to live in Africa. There are millions of African emigres in the US. How are those expats doing relative to their Chinese counterparts?

    On a side note, there's been speculation that Igbos are higher-IQ than the average African. Interestingly enough, it is estimated that at least 60% of American blacks have at least one Igbo ancestor (which is obviously different from saying that American blacks are 60% Igbo):

    The Igbo were affected heavily by the Atlantic slave trade in the 18th century. Enslaved Igbo were known for being rebellious and having a high count of suicide in defiance of slavery.[2][3][4] In the United States the Igbo were most numerous in the states of Maryland (coincidentally where there is a predominant population of recent Igbo immigrants)[5] and Virginia,[6] so much so that some historians have denominated colonial Virginia as “Igbo land.”[7]

    With a total of 37,000 Africans that arrived in Virginia from Calabar in the 18th century, 30,000 were Igbo according to Douglas B. Chambers.[6] The Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia estimates around 38% of captives taken to Virginia were from the Bight of Biafra.[8] Igbo peoples constituted the majority of enslaved Africans in Maryland.[6] Chambers has been quoted saying "My research suggests that perhaps 60 percent of black Americans have at least one Igbo ancestor..."[9]
     
    Could a good chunk of the high-achieving blacks without non-black admixture in fields outside of entertainment and athletics have significant Igbo ancestry?

    As an Igbo myself, I find the increasing fetishization of my people here extremely creepy. That said, it in my view does more to back up my view, after all, before the Europeans, we were nothing, aside one bronze age settlement, we had no great Empires; The Hausas run rings around us politically.

    Pretty much the only thing we’re good at is making money. That I would place on cultural pressure.
