  • History is primarily a chronicle of wars and invasions, most often among neighbors, so every inch of every border has been fiercely fought over, for that’s how any population maintains its autonomy, integrity and identity. Plus, you need land to prosper so, often, you grab your neighbor’s when he’s weak. Everyone has done this. Everyone....

    I'd translate it to mean: The Baizuo, White Left, believe all the world wants to become white Leftists. As wealth increases, everyone will become the Left, and nationalism, religion, and localism will become plastic and meaningless, amusing relics of the past.

    It's akin to GK Chesterton's Napoleon of Notting Hill, which has a sort of similar theme, though Chesterton is of course championing the meaningful localism/nationalism, religion, etc. that people fight over.

  • Reminder that an anti-open borders text is still up on Bernie’s website:

    https://berniesanders.com/open-borders-a-gimmick-not-a-solution/

    Like many libertarian ideas, “open borders” is bold, has superficial intellectual appeal – and is incapable of withstanding thoughtful scrutiny. It would benefit the wealthy few at the expense of the many, here and abroad.

    Any born American citizen who has actually spent time living in the Third World for a non-trivial period-I mean actually living there, not being gated up in a rich expat bubble-will happily tell you how insane it would be to not control immigration, no matter what their views on the subject were before. You'll easily see this dynamic with idealistic Peace Corps volunteers fresh from college. Many go abroad as open borders types. Few come back that way.

    And the irony is: many Third World immigrants would agree with them. You really think Mr. IIT or Tsinghua graduate who had to labor for a Phd in mathematics or CS to get citizenship is happy to be conflated with some half-literate Somali imported under the diversity visa, or even more insultingly, with someone who crossed the border illegally? No, the people who are the biggest loudmouths in favor of unlimited immigration are the types of people who have *never* wanted for anything in their lives.

    And the truly disgusting part is that while proclaiming their own virtue, they inevitably dump off the negative consequences onto their social lessers, which at best they view in condescending paternalistic terms (Asians, blacks) or at worst with open contempt (Les Deplorables). The exodus of Salvadorans from inner city DC to Northern Virginia's suburbs is one good example of this dynamic. The local schools are getting overwhelmed, MS-13 is exploding as a problem...

    Thanks for the link - awesome.

    The "honest liberal" who actually does care about the life of American workers, cares about the environment, wants to avoid unnecessary, counter productive Neo Conservative wars in the ME, wants to oppose obscene $ military spending, restarting the Cold War with the Russians, wants to have merited based racial policies where decent Black AA and decent Whites are treated fairly - this honest Liberal position is one of my favorites.

    The Atlantic Magazine was pretty much this way in the early 1990s, now J Neo Conservatives are taking it over along with links to Salon, Huffington Post - blatant lying propaganda from BlackLiesMatter, covering, denying for the worst forms of radical Islam including the return of open slavery and mass sexual grooming of poor English girls in Rotherham England.

    Unfortunately with Bernie Sanders type socialism, he/they tend to agree with whomever happens to be in the room with them at the time or in worse case agree with whatever mob is shouting at them at them time.

    It was this way with BlackLiesMatter mobs where the mob actually forced Bernie to repeat their slogans.

    Donald Trump made a very effective issue of this, stating he would never led some protesting mob intimidate him or intimidate Trump supporters.

    I don't know any black jazz fans. All of the jazz fans I know are white liberals who are probably only pretending to like the atonal, discordant honks and tweets that identify jazz "music" because they think they'll be accepted as equals by the black heroin addicts who run the scam. Jazz today is nonsensical noise played by people who can't actually play an instrument, and listened to by people who desperately want to be seen as cool.

    The jazz scene is reminiscent of the tale of the Emperor's New Clothes. Everyone pretends to see (or hear) something that isn't actually there, out of fear of looking normal to their abnormal peers.

  • Self-esteem, also known as pride.

    • Replies: @Formerly CARealist
    And pride comes before a fall. I remember dear Representative Vasconcelos and his self-esteem initiative. He was more riding a wave than pushing something new. Interesting to learn that it stemmed from his own personal issues. Something to remember when I see the latest psycho/social fad.

    I think the reason that self-esteem was used and not something constructive like confidence or self-respect or even basic human dignity is because they wanted kids to feel good about themselves regardless of any effort. Why? Well, some kids are just going to fail a lot and that's not fair.

    For me, I could put all the effort in the world into art and never come up with anything looking like anything. A few other kids I knew could just draw beautiful pictures from the 1st grade. Not fair! We all wanted to be artists back then but clearly only some kids had the ability.

    There were two categories on my report card, in addition to the academic subjects, called Effort and Deportment. Some kids got C's and D's in Spelling and Math, etc., but got A's in Effort. Some kids got A's in everything, the little weasels. I often got C's in Effort and Deportment, punk that I was.

    So where does self-esteem fit into this paradigm? A's in Effort but C's in everything else vs. A's in academics but C's in the effort and behavior categories. Answer: nowhere. It's why self-esteem had to be pulled from the air and dropped into people's laps independent of everything else in their lives.

    Problem is that Trump is such an incompetent and transparent fraud that he is going to end up destroying the anti-immigration movement through guilt by association. It is true that there weren't many alternatives on offer, but a Saunders type "left wing economic nationalism" would probably have had more of a chance of long term broad based success.

    And if Trump is winning, how is that self-appointed "people of color" seem to be more outspoken and comfortable in their contempt for "white people" than ever before? This attitude seems especially noticeable among South Asians, East Asians and the "talented tenth".

    What the anti-immigration movement needs is more Morrisseys - more "lefty" types willing to stand up and be counted. Wishful thinking probably but the arrogance of the "Desi Girls" of the world may yet get some white lefties to realize they have let vipers into the nest.

    Roissy (or to give his blog its current name, Heartiste) has gone so white nationalist that I find myself wondering whether it's actually the same guy writing the blog.

    IIRC, Roissy's secret identity was revealed a few years ago by a pissed-off female blogger who identified him as an employee of FINRA. I don't remember the name, but I recall that it was one that's often considered a "Jewish name." The current author of Heartiste, on the other hand, is not only a white nationalist but also seems to have antisemitic tendencies, which is another reason I wonder if there hasn't been a change in personnel. (I'm obviously assuming that (1) Jews are white, and (2) it's possible to be a white nationalist or a "race realist" without being an anti-Semite.) For all I know, Roissy/Heartiste may be the new Dread Pirate Roberts (minus the drug dealing).

    I honestly regret the loss of more game-specific content and "field reports" in favor of purely political rants (not that those aren't great too) as those were very useful (yes, gentlemen, game doesn't stop just because you're married**) and- at their finest- had a poetic sublimity just like Trump's Axis Hollywood aria about being overthrown by beauty and being powerless to do anything but immediately kiss on it.

    Initially I thought it had something to do with the timing of something, but May gives Autumn plenty of time so that didn’t make sense.

    Then I thought they were talking about Top Gear (actually The Grand Tour), which comes out on Amazon in a week, with James May and Richard Hammond in some PR stunt, but that didn’t make sense either.

    So I had to read the article.

    But Mrs May’s team insisted on a series of specific measures to help people, many of whom voted for Brexit in June, whose living standards could be further eroded next year by rising inflation and the fall in sterling.

    So May’s team insists on something done by the Autumn Statement due to something that was voted for in June due to the Fall in Sterling. Got it.

Why Ireland with its population of less than 6 million feels any obligation to flood itself with millions of 3rd worlders and Muslims is beyond comprehension. Their country could be a suburb of any big city in China, India, and other places in the 3rd world so why do they have to become the 3rd world and the indigenous people of Ireland strangers in their own country? Like Sweden Ireland is destroying itself by open borders. One of the biggest promoters of a multicultural Eire is a man named Alan Shatter. Look him up on Google.

    I watched a few French language movies recently. Almost all the movies I watch are historical dramas involving war or politics, including all of these:

    1. The Battle of Algiers - Great movie, I think this was the third time I watched it.

    2. Army of Crime - Good recent movie about a Resistance cell in Paris that engages in some successful terrorist attacks before they are all caught, tortured and executed. Also based on historical events. It had a fairly big budget and has some great sets showing working class Paris in 1940-41, complete with plenty of chicken and horses, as well as portraying the relationship between the public, French collaborators, and the German army in Occupied France. Lots of fun chases, explosions, capers, gunfire, etc.

    3. Au revoir les enfants - Great movie too, probably too pro-((())) for many iSteve readers. But hey, you can always just root for the Nazis. I know I was rooting for the French army in the Battle of Algiers against the filmmakers' intentions! It is interesting to see that an upper-class boarding school's conditions were pretty primitive compared to a lower class school today.

    4. Le Roi Danse - A recent big-budget movie about Louis XIV's earlier years. I quit watching about 2/3 of the way through. It wasn't horrible and had some good moments, and lots of expensive and pretty sets, but kind of slow paced and lacking in any action.

    5. Danton - Great movie with a young Gérard Depardieu as the lead.

    6. The Dreamers - Rated NC-17 for good reason. Partly in English. Not for everyone, but I liked it a lot, nobody makes movies like it in the USA. The basic plot during the near-revolution in 1968 an American student in Paris becomes friends with some weird French twins who may or may not be in an incestuous relationship with each other. The twins' large and slightly shabby Paris mansion and literary icon father are right out of Wes Anderson's Royal Tennanbaums and Squid and the Whale.

    The next movie I will watch is also foreign, this time Swedish, the big budget multi-part Arn, about some crusaders.

    I saw The Dreamers many years ago in Poland. Had completely forgotten about it until now. Definitely an odd one. The scene where the brother cooks an egg or something while watching the other two shag.

And some of my accepted sexual advances were total surprises to me, I was just giving them a try without expecting much, and, voilà.

Women are largely insufferable and there are no longer any real social forces in check to make a man want to commit to a woman. The only forces now are purely biological. Strictly straight guys might be willing to put up with female drama in order to keep their willies wet, but for guys like me there is no incentive unless ome wants children (which I'm not really eager to have).

    The Effects of ‘Youth Bulge’ on Civil Conflicts

    http://www.cfr.org/world/effects-youth-bulge-civil-conflicts/p13093

    Between 1970 and 1999, 80 percent of civil conflicts occurred in countries where 60 percent of the population or more were under the age of thirty, according to the PAI report. Today there are sixty-seven counties with youth bulges, of which sixty of them are experiencing social unrest and violence.
     

    Does religion also play a contributing factor?
    Yes. Young people “are often drawn to new ideas and heterodox relations, challenging older forms of authority,” writes Goldstone. But Gavin says “religion can provide an outlet that is constructive and allows youth to build social networks and find a sense of identity.” In the Muslim world, experts say large populations of idle youth are especially prone to virulent strands of Islam as an alternative force for social mobility. Of the twenty-seven largest youth-bulge societies in the world, thirteen are Muslim, according to Heinsohn.
     

    What are some policy prescriptions to combat youth bulge?

    Improve access to family planning measures. Improved reproductive health care and better access to family-planning measures, such as contraception programs, have proven effective in places like Iran, where births dropped from over six children per woman in 1979 to two per woman today. Better education programs for women can also help control the sizes of families and cause lower fertility rates.
     
    Interestingly, median age in the USA was about 20 years young/old in 1860, just shortly before the breakout of the Civil War:

    Declining fertility and mortality rates also have led to a sharp rise in the median age of our Nation’s population — from 20 years old in 1860 to 34 in 1994.
     
    – https://www.census.gov/population/socdemo/statbriefs/agebrief.html

    Another interesting observation is, that in the 1960s the USA median age actually briefly dropped from 29.5 to 28.1 years http://www.statista.com/statistics/241494/median-age-of-the-us-population/ , to eventually rise again to 30 years by 1980. This was caused by the post World War 2 U.S. Baby Boom https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baby_boomers

    In my opinion, this is the most likely explanation for what started and fueled the student/youth protests/revolts of the late 1960s and early 1970s: http://www.georgiaencyclopedia.org/articles/history-archaeology/student-movements-1960s

    Excellent post. The demographic context of conflicts is ignored far too often. And yes, the 1960s was a case of the young outnumbering the old, with the addition of new technologies. Now the old outnumber the young, in the US.

The mainstream media often repeats the idea that this is a myth which has been "debunked." Actually, it hasn't been debunked. Rather, through a set...
  • It’s interesting to me because in Britain at the moment we’ve got a bit of “All migrants are model compared to the majority” idea in education at the moment – https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/nov/14/london-schools-immigration-children-education : “It can be seen as a story of aspiration and ambition. There is nothing inherently different about the ability of pupils from different ethnic backgrounds, but the children of immigrants typically have high aspirations and ambitions, and might place greater hopes in the education system.”

    (Essentially, the White population is probably a bit more sorted into ability groups congruent with the geography of deprivation, and London schools seem better http://blogs.r.ftdata.co.uk/ftdata/files/2012/08/ethnic11.jpg, http://blogs.r.ftdata.co.uk/ftdata/files/2012/08/ethnic21.jpg, and there might be a bit of an advantage for migrants net of that…).

    So no one is really complaining about any kind of model minority thing. And the whole thing is pretty openly triumphalist.

    Whereas in the US you’ve got a different narrative, because of the longstanding Black American population, who aren’t particularly focused on either money from education or that intellectually engaged in education, so there’s some element of like “Curb your enthusiasm on migrant minorities, because otherwise it would look bad”.

What is most impressive is that Peru's IMO competitors are two to three years younger on average than most countries' because Peruvians start college at 15 or 16.

Biden had to pull Obama's chestnuts out of the fire and stop Mitt's momentum. Biden seemed all hyped up during the debate and kept interrupting Ryan to make irrelevant points.

With Pelosi on sedatives. Could be outright psych meds or other meds that modify your mind as a side effect when clashing w other meds.
    I have heard that medded up Washington DC hacks is a favorite subject of Michael Savage who has a science background that helps him to notice this.

    I think many public speakers and performers legitimately use beta blockers to suppress nervousness. This makes them more spontaneous and increases the chances of them giving an inspired performance. Many Adderall users, on the other hand, are grasping for an advantage in focus and cognition, which they will get only if they legitimately have ADHD. In normal people Adderall induces euphoria, offering no psychological benefits, and may even harm performance, particularly if it ends up making them come off like Dennis Hopper's character in Apocalypse Now, which is apparently what happened to Tim Kaine during the VP debate.

    No, they don't. The Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment prohibits any "special treatment." Unfortunately, it has been perverted to allow the white man to be discriminated against.

    As far as Indians are concerned, they were treated as foreigners living on sovereign nations when the Constitution was written. Thus, the Constitution was not intended to apply to them. Congress made them citizens in the 1920s... so after they no longer should qualify for special treatment of any kind.

    Don't write off Diamond. Wars are won by concentrating force against weakness, in other words you need local superiority in numbers to win. Diamond's book has"germs" in the title. Neolithic Farmers were no strangers to organised warfare and raiding, and surly far more numerous than those who conquered them. One would think that as the Yamnaya pushed into farmer territory they would face ever greater concentrations of farmers. Yet the farmers must have been always outnumbered at the point of contact to lose so constantly. Maybe Diamond has a point and it was germs ( plague brought by the Yamnaya) that thinned out the farmers and sealed their fate.

    There is literally ZERO logical correlation between the crack down on immigration in the 1920′s and what you just mentioned.
     
    The 1924 restriction helped previous waves of immigrants assimilate. This helped strengthen the national identity and national will, which made the Moon landing possible.

    Can you imagine a Moon landing project today? BLM would be against it, quoting Gil Scott-Heron heavily.

    Senor Diaz, US history has seen periods of immigration, followed by periods of restriction. Both are necessary. It's now time for a period of restriction.

    Great point, also Jack Strocchi’s.

    To add to your point, it’s amazing how the champions of big government fail to lament our inability these days to complete large projects, even those with broad public support. We can’t even build roads and bridges. The new Bay Bridge in S.F. and the Second Avenue subway in New York are prime examples of fiascos compared to their predecessors built a century or more ago. (My friend notes half-jokingly that the new 7 train station on Manhattan’s west side probably cost more and took longer to complete than the entire original line.). Does anyone think that if we get to Mars, it will the public sector that does it?

    This is due to leftist values like public-sector union corruption, ineptitude and inertia in bloated municipal government, overregulation, environmentalism, other forms of lawfare, and NIMBYism.

    It’s almost as if the squabbling factions on the left are more interested in spreading the spoils to pad their various constituents’ nests instead of providing goods and services to the taxpaying public.

    There is literally ZERO logical correlation between the crack down on immigration in the 1920's and what you just mentioned. The atomic bomb was given to America by European Jews - and I am letting slide your comment about WW2, as the fact is that winning the "Big One" was mostly done by Russia and not America. As for going to the Moon, the Appolo Project was almost 100% made of immigrants, German scientists brought to the U.S under Project Paperclip. In fact, the top echelon at NASA was composed of almost 100% German nationals up to 1973. All immigrants. Let me spell that out for you: i.m.m.i.g.r.a.n.t.s.
