Are there any photos of Abe prior to his initial appearance at the beach? Is Abe possibly aquatic or marine in his origin?

  • I sometimes use Social Justice Jihadi. Or how about this?
  • They’re social reformers. Social reform activism was listed in the Soviet version of the DSM under “sluggish schizophrenia” ( вялотеку́щая шизофрени́я).

    You could call them dissidents. I’ve used the term Bolshevik. But the most neutral term is social reform activist. “Becky is a social reform activist, she’s organizing a protest on campus”.

  • @Twinkie

    The most determinative factor in a child’s academic outcome is the educational attainment of the parents. Race and socioeconomic status are swamped out by this one variable.
     
    So you are saying that the children of "educated" blacks would beat out the children of white and Asian menial workers. Have you seen this?

    http://www.jbhe.com/latest/news/1-22-09/satracialgapfigure.gif

    I think it’s true, SES and race don’t contribute a lot to outcome in the US in comparison to the educational attainment of parents. It’s said that 8% of the variance is attributable to SES and 15% to b-w race but about 80% of the variance is due to family of origin (between/within families).

  • The most determinative factor in a child’s academic outcome is the educational attainment of the parents. Race and socioeconomic status are swamped out by this one variable. Children from educated homes do well; children having uneducated parents do poorly. This is largely true regardless of race or socioeconomic status.

    If uneducated black women stopped making babies with uneducated black men the b-w gap would rapidly disappear. This would be especially true if latent homosexual white men started making babies with NYC-area middle-aged formerly drug addicted lesbian black women, like the mayor.

    The 2013 NAEP assessment of 12th graders showed that the black children of college graduates tested the same as the Asian, white, and Hispanic children of high school dropouts.

    https://www.nationsreportcard.gov/reading_math_g12_2013/#/group-results


    For native-born Americans, nearly 40% of children born to black women with college degrees are born out of wedlock.

    Out of wedlock % for native-born American mothers with college degrees:
    Hispanic 20%
    white 6.9%
    black 39.3%
    Asian/Pacific Islander 7.8%

    I’m sorry this isn’t correct, the children of Black college graduates on average do no better than poor whites academically. Depending on how you look at it, it’s estimated that half of middle class black kids will end up in poverty.
    , @Buzz Mohawk
    You are confusing correlation with causation.

    Children of highly educated parents have parents who genetically are smart. Even though there is regression to the mean, smart populations beget smart offspring, on average. In large numbers, this means you will find academically high-achieving children in larger numbers coming from populations of academically high-achieving parents.

    Assuming you are using the word "determinative" to mean a cause rather than just a statistical indicator/predictor, you are wrong.

  • @Prof. Woland
    Speaking of HR, I have a son who is graduating from college and going into the corporate world. My experience is second hand and anecdotal but I have noticed a couple of things that are worth passing on. One is that people his age who can choose, are much more careful where they work. There is an understanding now that if you are white / male / straight your career prospects will be much harder and riskier at some places than others so assessing the "corporate culture" is more important than ever. That is also true for the type of work one does. Some of the more 'political' jobs are simply less safe from a career standpoint. If I can think of an analogy, it would be like the Soviet Union in the 1930's when it was much safer to be an engineer or doctor v. being in the government or the Party. This is also true on a geographical basis. Working in the silicone valley would have been like being in Moscow. It is where all the action is but it might be better to relocate to an area where the power is not so concentrated.

    Silicone valley? What do they do there, caulk windows and counter tops?

  • From my latest column in Taki's Magazine: Read the whole thing there.
  • @syonredux

    Another aspect of the postwar UFO craze that’s easy to forget is that the engineering mindset was not wholly divorced from appreciation for the paranormal. The aerospace, science-fiction, movie, and New Age worlds were by no means wholly distinct. All tended to flourish and overlap in Southern California.

    For example, M.D., sci-fi novelist, and film director Michael Crichton claimed in his memoir to have witnessed numerous examples of Uri Geller-style telekinetic spoon bending at house parties given by Lockheed engineers.

     

    Another example would be Jack Parsons:

    John Whiteside "Jack" Parsons (born Marvel Whiteside Parsons;[nb 1] October 2, 1914 – June 17, 1952) was an American rocket engineer and rocket propulsion researcher, chemist, and Thelemite occultist. Associated with the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Parsons was one of the principal founders of both the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and the Aerojet Engineering Corporation. He invented the first rocket engine to use a castable, composite rocket propellant,[1] and pioneered the advancement of both liquid-fuel and solid-fuel rockets.
     

    After a brief involvement with Marxism in 1939, Parsons converted to Thelema, the English occultist Aleister Crowley's new religious movement. In 1941, alongside his first wife Helen Northrup, Parsons joined the Agape Lodge, the Californian branch of the Thelemite Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.). At Crowley's bidding, he replaced Wilfred Talbot Smith as its leader in 1942 and ran the Lodge from his mansion on Orange Grove Avenue. Parsons was expelled from JPL and Aerojet in 1944 due to the Lodge's infamy and allegedly illicit activities, along with his hazardous workplace conduct.

    In 1945 Parsons separated from Helen after having an affair with her sister Sara; when Sara left him for L. Ron Hubbard, he conducted the Babalon Working, a series of rituals designed to invoke the Thelemic goddess Babalon to Earth. He and Hubbard continued the procedure with Marjorie Cameron, whom Parsons married in 1946.

    It seems a little harsh to ascribe the failure of Mesopotamian irrigation systems to the arrival of Islam. Rising levels of salt were probably the major factor. From the waterencyclopaedia.com on irrigation systems in antiquity:

    “Even today, 4,000 to 5,000 years later, the embankments of the abandoned canals are still present. These canal systems, in fact, supported a denser population than lives there today. Over the centuries, the agriculture of Mesopotamia began to decay because of the salt in the alluvial soil. Then, in 1258, the Mongols conquered Mesopotamia and destroyed the irrigation systems.”

    I seem to recall that the US writer James A Michener made similar observations about the decayed irrigation systems in Afghanistan and Iran in one of his books.

    "Gun violence in the United States is a major national concern that results in.........33,636 deaths due to "injury by firearms" (10.6 deaths per 100,000 U.S. citizens).[4] These deaths consisted of 11,208 homicides,[5] 21,175 suicides,[4] 505 deaths due to accidental or negligent discharge of a firearm, and 281 deaths due to firearms use with "undetermined intent".[4] Of the 2,596,993 total deaths in the US in 2013, 1.3% were related to firearms.[1][6] The ownership and control of guns are among the most widely debated issues in the country."

    So, 2/3rds of the deaths he's "happy to talk about" are suicides. And homicides roughly 1/3rd. And we all know the rest about who really is pulling the trigger so there's no point in reciting more. Anyway, he's deceitful right out of the blocks.

    Would he really happily deprive suffering people of their best option, the least painful way to end it all? How cruel is that?

  • From the San Francisco Examiner: Emphasis mine. Undocumented immigrants don't kill, guns do. Guns are always going off by themselves at tourist attractions. Guns have a mind of their own. They are evil. Unlike guns, undocumented workers like Garcia Zarate don't have free will or agency. They are victims.
  • @Michelle
    I am of the opposite mind to the rule of law when it comes to convicting and sentencing persons with developmental disabilities, which I believe Señor Zarate suffers from. To me, the very idea of having your crimes excused because you are too dumb to understand that what you did is wrong is insane. If you are so cognitively impaired that you cannot recognize right from wrong, you can never be let loose upon society again. Life in prison without the possibility of parole is the only remedy. People who have brain damage or have been damaged by their upbringing and have committed serious crimes should be locked away for life.

    If a person is a threat to themself or others they should be commited to an appropriate institution. This was the policy of the U.S. up until the late 1960s. Now we have people who are clearly a threat to themselves or others who are released into the community despite having global functioning so low that they are clearly a risk to themselves or others, the lowest standard on the scale of global functioning. Mental institutions serve a purpose even if Leftists can’t see what it is. Indeed many Leftists would themselves be committed to mental institutions on the basis of “harm to oneself or others”. Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi might have been committed to a mental institution in an earlier time.

    I live in the SF Bay Area and about 15 years ago I went on a field trip with my pre-school age daughter to the SF Opera kids day along with her class mates. After the show we all went to a children's playground in the City Park across from City Hall; the one with all the bums. When I went into the enclosed play area there was a sign that read; "no adults allowed unless accompanied by a minor". It pretty much says it all.

    Why do places like San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and Washington have such a tendancy toward Bolshevism?

    , @TomSchmidt
    A good question. Part of the problem is that the economies of these places have become much less diverse as they have been moved mostly into "creative class" industries. Look up George Christopher, mayor of SF in the 60s. He'd be too conservative to govern Texas today.

    NYC represented 10% of the US GDP in WW2. All that manufacturing is now gone, replaced by lawyers, bankers, and other virtual wealth producers. That means no room for anything other than an elite and a service class, and very little middle class.

    BTW, the Bolshevism has also left. What you're seeing is cultural Marxism, or an elite, extractive class using leftwing rhetoric to justify its privileges. Bolshevism would be an improvement.

    Also they have nearby Bolshie spinoff cities, usually nearby university towns (Santa Cruz and Berkeley for SF, Madison for Chicago, etc....). Though IIRC the Jewishest town in WA state is Bellevue, also where a lot of financial management companies reside. Also Mercer Island, where tech x-illionaires live who don't like the commute to Medina.

    The Bolshevism--the elitist philosophy based in constant grievance ostensibly on someone's behalf, but not really--has grown side-by-side with the doubling down on the sillier elements of the Holocaust narrative. Have you noticed that?

    When white people left the racially demolished cities of the Northeast, we were indulging in White Flight and being racists. When Jews do the same, it's diaspora because Hitler's in the streets or White House and anudda shoah is just around the corner.

    R. Kelly hasn't been charged with sex-crimes because nobody cares about black female "victims," who are "invisible, " just like Tawana Brawley and Chrystal Magnum. Yes, the girls in Rotherham, most of them pubescent, many as young as 10 and 11, who were abducted, enslaved for years, rapes, gang-raped, tortured, beaten, urinated upon, doused with petrol and threatened with immolation, dangled by the ankles off balcnies, etc., by misogynistic subhuman Muslim savages and degenerates, were all black. The myriads of women and girls who were assaulted in public, sexually and non-sexually, in Cologne and Berlin and other German cities by gangs of Muslim offal and carrion were all black. The myriads of Swedish women and girls who have been raped and gang-raped by Muslim savages and predators are all black.

    The real story is the "invisibility" and systemic coddling of black male criminals. That's why Kelly won't be charged with sex-crimes or serve a day in jail in a country in which a Nevada women, convicted at trial in 2010, was sentenced to life in prison for alleged "forcing" a 13-year-old male to touch her breast and a women teacher in Georgia was sentenced to 40-years in prison, under a plea-bargain, for having sex with a 14-year-old male student.

  • Australians are cucks. Something like 20% of Australians have
    a recent ancestor who was a criminal convict. The Australian
    prime minister in the 1920s complained that Australian Jews had
    monopolized the various mining and extracative industries there.
    Australians have very weak identity. One Australian guy I follow
    became an orthodox Jew following his career as a porn journalist!
    My older sister had an Australian penpal in the early 1970s who
    wanted to come to America to marry her (she was maybe 14). This
    complete loss of identity is associated with borderline
    personality disorder and, of course, the Stockholm Syndrome.
    Australians seem to be overdosed on both disorders. The ultimate
    cause of this I’ll leave to philosophers but the how of it is
    that Australians appear to be a moderately defective group
    suffering a general crisis of identity. It may be something in
    the water or possibly a germ. It could be due to the coriolis

    After the show she met the (German) band members and they invited her back to the hotel.

    At the hotel she hung out with the band and their wives. She had a few drinks with them and smoked some weed but couldn’t get any of them to go to bed with her because their wives were all there. She ended up giving it to a roadie.

    She’s told me this story at least ten different times over the years and the point, as far as I can tell, is that the Scorpions were and are to this day a major disappointment to her.

    Steve Miller, Journey, Fleetwood Mac were all bands of that era that were better before they became famous and commercialized. Steve Miller's early stuff was pretty good albeit not very polished. Same for Journey before they got rick Perry or FM getting Stevie Nix. Once they found the winning combination, they just pumped out records, each one sounding like the one before it. Van Halen is another one where they were never as good as their first album.

It has its own independant central bank and soverien currency. Iceland has the second highest rated quality of life in the world. Iceland has universal health care which is considered of very good quality. Icelanders have among the highest longevity of any people. Iceland has a very low Gini index–that is, a low amount of income inequality. There is almost no crime in Iceland. The total fertility rate (TFR) for women in Iceland is 2.1: the only European country that is reproductive. Phone books in iceland are alphebetized by first name. Some 98% of icelanders are under the impression that they can rely on someone they know to help them, a far higher percentage than in other industrialized countries.

    , @AnotherGuessModel
    That's unfair and incorrect. As a matter of fact, the medium of periodicals, or magazines, covering a variety of subjects from frivolous to serious, is highly suited to teenage girls. The assortment of teenage and young women's magazines I grew up reading in the 90's and early 00's always maintained a balance of fashiony stuff, human interest stories, and articles about politics and social issues, and you might be surprised by how solid a lot of the writing was. Hey, I'll even generously throw Cosmopolitan in there. It deserved its insipid reputation, but had some invaluable articles on women's health and sexuality that might not be otherwise accessible to many young women.

    The Teen Vogue editors made the same argument as me, that their detractors did not respect teenage girls as intelligent and socially aware. That you can enjoy typically girlish pursuits, such as boybands and makeup, and also have more serious pursuits and concerns. Where Teen Vogue faltered was in its aggressive to increasingly far-left politics and social causes, which by the way, is happening across the board for Hearst and Conde Nast women's magazines, and it is chilling. I'm relieved that this alienated parents who pay for subscriptions, but I hope it alienated teenage girls themselves. If Teen Vogue really had the courage to follow through on their defense of teenage girls' intelligence and ability to think critically, they would include a variety of political and social perspectives in the magazine, not make it an radical leftist-intersectional feminist (oh but buy these $$$ clothes and cosmetics) mouthpiece.

    This feature is not related at all to IQ or intelligence. There are low IQ people who are not very suggestible. And there are high IQ people who are extremely credulous. Credulity is almost independant of IQ.

    The willingness to believe what others say, without evidence, may have fallen under natural selection over the ages. Human beings may have been selected to be "stupid" in this respect since it may be adaptative to be suggestible if the alternative is being hit over the head with a club.

    I often hear assertions like this, but have yet to see a convincing reference. Do you have one?

    I went looking for references. Here is a metastudy which concludes there is a small relation between intelligence and influencability: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/263919040_Self-esteem_and_intelligence_affect_influenceability_The_mediating_role_of_message_reception

    And what looks like one of the more interesting studies it included: https://www.scholars.northwestern.edu/en/publications/intelligence-comprehension-and-opinion-change

    That paper leads me to conclude a simple relationship does not make sense. The reality is more interesting in terms of intelligence impacting the ability to understand arguments. Here is the summary:

    High school students representing differing levels of verbal intelligence received two persuasive messages which either did or did not contain a set of complex supporting arguments. It was assumed that more intelligent students would comprehend these arguments better and that comprehension would facilitate opinion change. It was therefore hypothesized that for messages supported by arguments, intelligence would relate positively to opinion change, but for unsupported messages, intelligence would relate negatively to change. The hypothesis proved generally accurate. Further, findings concerning subjects' knowledge of the content of the messages tended to confirm the interpretation that the effect of intelligence on opinion change is in part a product of its effect on message comprehension. The general implications of the findings for relationships between personality variables and opinion change are discussed.
     
    Perhaps rather than looking at persuasion as a single thing it makes more sense to look at individual techniques: https://www.fastcompany.com/3030173/how-to-use-10-psychological-theories-to-persuade-people
    Does intelligence affect the vulnerability to each of those techniques? I suspect it does, with people of widely differing intelligence having different vulnerabilities.

    Has anyone tried looking at the relation of intelligence (across a broad range, not just undergrads) to Asch conformity experiment results?
