Twitter HBD buff Ion Râmaru (Romanian, so not white) draws attention to the very diverse makeup of the Mankind Quarterly's editorial board. That's at least 12/20 who are not white, though it should really be 16/20 on account of the two Russians and two Serbs not being white either. Indeed, would this not constitute even... Read More
Toews, Gerhard, and Pierre-Louis Vézina. 2018. “Enemies of the People.” Working Paper. (h/t Emil) The presence of Gulag prisoners - especially concentrations of "enemies of the people", i.e. "politicals" who overwhelmingly hailed from the Tsarist-era educated elites in the professions, aristocracy, and kulaks - had positive long-run effects on development in those regions. This is... Read More
This is a quick addendum to this post about Poland's cultural/electoral geography. Everybody who has spent time in our corner of the Internet is familiar with the basics, in which the territories formerly controlled by Russia and Austria-Hungary vote conservative while the Prussian-controlled areas vote liberal. (With adjustment for liberal tilt in big cities). However,... Read More
This young woman of mixed heritage (Ethiopian father, Belorussian mother) is on the "Coordinating Council" set up by the Belarusian opposition to manage the transition from Lukashenko until new Presidential Elections. "Alana Gebremariam is an activist of the Youth Bloc" according to her bio on the official site. She was at one point arrested for... Read More
Yesterday, I made my premier appearance at Edward Dutton's Jolly Heretic podcast show on evopsych, HBD, history, and other taboo topics. You can give it a listen here: Achievement unlocked: Shilling the dogpill to the bewildered masses.
Excellent control: Singapore started off following Western (mal)practice on the Mask Question, but after reversing stance, mask wearing became universal to an extent that didn't occur in the US or any North European nation. This pattern also checks out within races in the US - Latinos (87%) are higher than Whites (62%) or Blacks (69%),... Read More
This is via /r/MapPorn (in turn, I think, via /pol). Overall, the map strikes me as quite accurate. Portugal didn't strike me anywhere near as Black as the UK, I would have put it at not much more than 1%. I think France is a bit too high, probably because it includes the overseas departments....

IQ researcher Richard Lynn, the initiator of research into national differences in IQ and co-inventor of the FLynn Effect, has just released his autobiography, Memoirs of a Dissident Psychologist. I have yet to read most of it, though I can already highly recommend it for those with an interest in the subject. But one point... Read More
No, the other kind of Caucasian. The ones who live between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. А couple of weeks ago, Cherkess activists were successful in forcing the removal of a newly unveiled monument to the Russian soldiers who conquered the region in the 19th century in Adler, a city close to Sochi....

Recent Levada poll asking 14-29 year old Russians and non-Russians how often they feel discriminated against. Non-Russians: 77% say never discriminated against. Also 78% of women say there were never discriminated against on account of their sex. This succinctly answers the question of whether there is racism and sexism in Russia. There isn't, so far...

Yandex.Taxi is Russia's Uber. According to its terms of service, a driver can refuse a passenger a ride for any reason; he or she is deducted a fine and that's the end of the matter. But, like many laws and regulations, this apparently no longer applies to Black passengers. Drivers are obligated to give them... Read More
Hard to argue with this take. This Gallup poll from April shows 42% with a HS education or less as saying they have never worn a mask in the past week, vs. just 20% of those with college or postgrad degrees. It also certainly tallies with my observations here and would also tally with common... Read More
Considering the type of people who take him seriously - hard right conservatives, Gog/Magog cultists, "Final Phase" conspiracy theorists, White Nationalists - it's pretty funny that this guy's complaints towards the USSR boiled down to them not letting him race mix with Indians.
Over the past ~5 years, there have been intermittent debates amongst the HBD crowd as to what will come first. Widespread HBD acceptance, due to the "free market of ideas" leading to a kind of "enlightened" radical centrist utopia in which liberal-left goodie-goodness is anchored in a benign paternalism borne of HBD realism (i.e. what...

Kneeling before the #BlackLivesMatter cult seems to be acquiring something of a "voluntary-compulsory" character in the West (a Soviet era oxymoron signifying something that is voluntary in theory, but compulsory in practice, if you know what's good for you). Sure, you don't have to kneel. But if you don't kneel, you might draw the righteous... Read More
RT: Speeding car FLIPS OVER amid clashes between Chechen and Arab gangs in Dijon, France (VIDEOS) According to the Chechens, the Algerians started it by beating up a 16 year old boy at a shisha bar. The Chechens then called in reinforcements from all over France. Anyhow, my bet is on the Chechens. It will... Read More
Here's a map of Fentanyl Floyd protests in Eurasia with more than 100 members (h/t Jack Posobiec): As I pointed out, in epidemiological terms, we may consider English language knowledge and pro-Western geopolitical orientation to be the main "vectors" through which American cults such as #BLM spreads. Few surprises. Perhaps more in Italy than I... Read More
I know this is kind of Paul Kersey's beat, but as he doesn't seem to write much about things outside the US... Ireland was 1.3% Black as of the last Census. Yet this demographic is already agitating for special political privileges with #BlackLivesMatter while knifing the pale, racist locals. Not an isolated incident, either. The... Read More
What you have in #BlackLivesMatter is an emerging religion, complete with its own pantheon of saints and martyrs and the latest iteration of what some have called negrolatry, or the Cult of the Magical Negro.. The latest "saint" in this religion was a highly flawed human being, to put it charitably. Career criminal, drug dealer,... Read More
This is perfectly logical. Iceland is a well known global center of white supremacy. Even its very name carries exclusionary overtones. Should be renamed to Sunland.
So as the facts roll this entire affair seems to become more and more slapstick, as we now learn that #FentanylFloyd was OD'ing on multiple drugs including fentanyl and methamphetamine. Floyd was on 11ng/ml of fentanyl. That's apparently a lethal dose. He had also been infected with the coronavirus in April. Though apparently asymptomatic, this... Read More
When the results of PISA 2018 were unveiled, there was significant skepticism about the much improved results from Sweden, based on the unimpressive coverage ratio (86%, vs. 99% in Germany) and large share of pupils excluded on account of being "new arrivals" (11%, vs. 0.4% in Germany) Expressen reports: Sweden's PISA success is based on...

Hurricane Floyd has likely ended whatever meager chances the US still had of containing its coronavirus epidemic, so sealing the fates of far more people than will die in these riots. I am not so much talking about direct transmissions between riots, and rioters and their families further down the line, which may not be... Read More
Map of QNW+SAS+GEO (IQ tests, international standardized test, and geographic imputation) national IQ on the basis of David Becker's National IQ dataset v1.3.3. David Becker has done yeoman work validating Richard Lynn's datasets to produce the world's most comprehensive national IQ database (James Thompson has written about this at UR). Sole purpose of this post... Read More
As of April 24, 2020, you no longer have to give up your foreign citizenship to get a Russian one. Other categories: Stateless persons in the f.USSR no longer have to reside in Russia for three years. (Obvious application: Russians in the Baltic states). Spouses of Russian citizens living in Russia and who have children... Read More
Leading intelligence researchers have just forwarded me this graph from an upcoming article on the relation between cognitive ability and sentiment towards Russia that will soon be published in a high impact psychology journal.
Data impresario Zach Goldberg ("PhD student/Wokeness Studies scholar") has assembled a series of graphs collating the results of several polls of American attitudes to Corona. There's nothing particularly unexpected. It confirms other polls (e.g. PEW, SurveyUSA) showing a large partisan divide in attitudes towards Corona. Democrats anxious, angry, depressed, and skeptical about Trump's ability to... Read More
Proposed text of Russia's migration reforms on the Kremlin website (via Google Translate w/ manual edits) follows the neo-nationalist line I have been propounding and reporting on for the past year. Of relevance to Russians, esp. those in the Near Abroad: In recent days, it was accompanied by a law that the Russian government prepared... Read More
In my old post on the WQ, I noted that there are many more women in Russian nationalism than there are in the Alt Right in the US. Anecdotal examples: In my IQ/dysgenics talk in Saint-Petersburg in November 2019 (peak optics), almost a third of the audience were women. Perhaps 20%-25% at the "Russian Meeting"... Read More
This is according to the latest data by criminologist Matt Ashby. This is a stunning reversal from a century ago, where contemporary "Core Europe" (Britain, France, Germany, the Low Countries, and Scandinavia) had homicide rates of 1-2/100,000 vs. around 5/100,000 in places like Italy, Finland, Japan, and Russia. The one good thing about this is... Read More
Izvestia reports that Jarosław Kaczyński now also wants reparations from Russia. In an interview with German tabloid Bild, employer of the famous "Jihadi Julian" Röpcke, the PiS leader said: Though I'd say more, I already pretty much said everything that needs to be said a few days ago. Russia should pay up whenever the Poles... Read More

The Witcher (Wiedźmin) is a fantasy series by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski that was mostly written in the 1990s. It is set in a European-inspired continent riven between constantly feuding kingdoms, ruled behind the scenes by a cabal of mages, while monsters from Indo-European folklore reive on the hapless, mudfooted peasants. A class of specially-trained... Read More
New Eurobarometer 493 poll (October 2019) [download data] largely confirms what I wrote about this last year. The map is from /r/europe. (1) Poles least based in EE... as usual. (2) Sociologically, Ossies are now an essentially EE people. According to Cicerone, West German average would be 8.0, while East German average would be similar... Read More
Map of Spanish PISA results via /u/bulfcc on Reddit: As usual, clear N-S gradient, if not as steep as in Italy. Incidentally, the north is in demographic free-fall (2x deaths as births), while the south is stable (births~=deaths). Here's the data from 2018: Not good, but a predictable pattern. *** Thanks to another Twitter user... Read More
Sugonyaev, Konstantin, and Andrei Grigoriev. 2019. “Эффект Флинна в России.” Экспериментальная Психология 12 (4): 50–61.

Refer to my two existing articles on this for more details on methodology: Largest Survey of Russian IQ Yet... Read More
The PISA 2018 report has detailed regional data for Canada, Spain, and Kazakhstan (as well as more limited regional data for eight other countries), which you can find on pp.255-260 of PISA 2018 Results (Volume I) [excel]. We have already had maps of regional PISA-based IQ in Italy, Spain, Russia, and Germany, but this is... Read More
PISA 2018 results dropping in a few hours. Use this thread for discussing them. In particular, I am excited to finally get some definitive answers on the Ukrainian Question. (And Belarus). *** UPDATE: The results are in. Raw data. *** My classic IQ related articles: Through A Glass Ceiling Darkly: Racial IQ Disparities And The... Read More
There's one crucial difference, and not many people seem to recognize its importance. "ZOG" pretty much controls the US, which has recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital in defiance of the rest of the world (and 63% of US voters), curtailed its otherwise extensive freedom of speech protections by criminalizing the BDS movement, and whose Conservatism...

Rindermann, Heiner, David Becker, and Thomas R. Coyle. 2020. “Survey of Expert Opinion on Intelligence: Intelligence Research, Experts’ Background, Controversial Issues, and the Media.” Intelligence 78 (January): 101406. Experts (N max = 102 answering) on intelligence completed a survey about IQ research, controversies, and the media. The survey was conducted in 2013 and 2014 using... Read More
So about Polish elections. Almost everyone familiar with the endless discussions on HBD/Hajnal Line would be familiar with this basic electoral map of Poland. Basically, the parts in the former German Empire tend to vote for liberal/progressive parties, while the parts belonging to the former Russian and Austrian Empires tend to vote for conservative parties....

Cohn, Alain, Michel André Maréchal, David Tannenbaum, and Christian Lukas Zünd. 2019. “Civic Honesty around the Globe.” Science, June, eaau8712. Here is a graph of the results: In contrast to many observers, I did not find the tendency to return wallets with more cash to be a surprising one. Wallets don't cost a lot, and... Read More
This is a question that Steve Sailer asks a lot. That is, why do Middle Easterners tend to have similar average IQ to Latin Americans, but significantly more folks in the cognitive elites? Well, here's one idea: That's pretty impressive. But it sort of came to an end. Why? Apart from dysgenics, and this idea... Read More
Andrade, Gabriel, and Maria Campo Redondo. 2019. “Rushton and Jensen’s Work Has Parallels with Some Concepts of Race Awareness in Ancient Greece.” Psych 1 (1): 391–402. One of the more bizarre theories, even by the standards of postmodern academia, is that "racialism" was an outgrowth of the Atlantic slave trade and/or an invention o
In one of my posts on the Age of Malthusian Industrialism, I pointed out that groups such as the Amish and the Mormons will be some of the first to become saturated with genotypic breeders: Now, here is a map of how this may look like, courtesy of /pol/*: Projecting forwards another century after 2100,...

I did infer that he is redpilled on all of this stuff in my review of his book, though his interpretation - like Pinker's - is strongly liberal/paternalistic. (Which is perfectly fine and internally consistent). He has definitively confirmed that. This has created quite the ruckus, with Angela D. Saini - author of ominous sounding... Read More
Meisenberg, Gerhard. 2019. “Should Cognitive Differences Research Be Forbidden?” Psych 1 (1): 306–19. In particular, Section 5 is a masterpiece in the art of reframing "liberal" objections to IQ research in a way that
Recent paper (h/t @whyvert). Kim, Yuri, and James J. Lee. 2018. “The Genetics of Human Fertility.” Current Opinion in Psychology 27 (August): 41–45. There's basically two classes of people having more kids: Interesting to see who will win out by the time of the Age of Malthusian Industrialism. (Certainly the former would be more successful...

About Anatoly Karlin

I am a blogger, thinker, and businessman in the SF Bay Area. I’m originally from Russia, spent many years in Britain, and studied at U.C. Berkeley.

One of my tenets is that ideologies tend to suck. As such, I hesitate about attaching labels to myself. That said, if it’s really necessary, I suppose “liberal-conservative neoreactionary” would be close enough.

Though I consider myself part of the Orthodox Church, my philosophy and spiritual views are more influenced by digital physics, Gnosticism, and Russian cosmism than anything specifically Judeo-Christian.
