Since the end of the Bush era, disinvitations and cancelation campaigns have become the near exclusive preserve of the Left, with the range of opinion warranting such attacks spreading beyond the traditionally taboo HBD/IQ nexus to encompass more and more areas, such as affirming the existence of physiological differences between the sexes. According to a... Read More
Charles Murray was widely lambasted a few weeks back for this Tweet: Indeed, Sub-Saharan Africa isn't that bad according to official homicide stats. For instance, Burkina Faso and Benin claim 1.3 and 1.1 /100,000 homicides, respectively, per year (from UN Office on Drugs and Crime's International Homicide Statistics via World Bank). But Africa is a... Read More
It's fascinating to think that what is now a solidly lower-middle income country with a population that is on the cusp of overtaking's China's has just two medals in the Olympics so far. It's a bit less surprising when one considers that the average Indian man might only be about as strong as the average... Read More
America's ability to draw high quality human capital from abroad is one of the lynchpins of its economic strengths and probably goes some ways to explaining why it's GDP per capita is significantly higher than would might be predicted from its national IQ. Alexander Kruel recently had a Twitter thread about precisely which groups of... Read More
This translates to a homicide rate of 7.4/100,000 homicide rate using the US population of 332M as the denominator. I wrote about the history of the Russian homicide rates here. This is how the centennial comparison now looks like between Russia and the US after the latter's embrace of #BLM and community policing. US at... Read More
My attention was brought to the following map of Ukraine's IQ. I don't know the methodology behind it, but it seems to be based on what is not an uncommonly cited average (usually low to mid 90s) coupled with the results of the ZNO, which is the nationwide school-leaving exam in Ukraine. Russia's equivalent is... Read More
It's quite amusing that, read in the wrong (right?) light, this basically comes off as a paean to White Supremacy. It's the ultimate humblebrag. I think there's quite a lot of truth to this thesis of The Unbearable Lightness of White Supremacy. Regardless of which White faction "wins" this civil war, the power structure itself... Read More
Why Western SJWs are the Real Racists
Bold but not entirely trollish interpretation of the Great Awokening. Western - White American - culture remains hegemonic around the world, even as its economic and military preponderance slips away. Assuming this cultural hegemony remains intact, cultural "innovations" that arise in the imperial metropolis inevitably seep their way into the colonies. This is obviously correct... Read More
To get really good at Scrabble, you have to grind at it. Sure, you can do that. Requirements are simple. As Chanda Chisala says, you only need a dictionary. You don't need a gaming PC or good Internet (or any Internet). And malnutrition impinges least on precisely verbal IQ, which is convenient. As is having... Read More
I have written that Moscow - not to mention the rest of Russia - remains an overwhelmingly (that is, 85%-90% Slavic) megapolis. The Myth of Moskvabad From Russia to Russabia? Not Anytime Soon I don't see the need to reiterate something that only remains an obsession for a few liberal racists masquerading as Russian nationalists,... Read More
Map of POC homelands within Europe. Portland has recognized Slavs, and by extension Russians, as a Community of Color - a long overdue step in the fight for racial justice in America and affirmation that "race" and "color" can only be defined in terms of a system of power relationships. Recognition of Russians as a... Read More
Vladimir Avdeev (1962-2020) was probably the foremost exponent of what we may very loosely term "HBD" in Russia, if we may treat phrenology-based Nordic/Dinaric race theories from a 1930s time capsule as such. He did contribute some useful things, most notably through arranging translations of more modern Western literature on the subject (e.g. many of... Read More
Unfortunately, I never met or even personally communicated with James Flynn. There is a good chance this would have happened during the annual ISIR conference that was to take place in Amsterdam this year, but then Corona-chan happened instead. That said, I was pleasantly surprised to hear from Mr. XYZ, one of the regular commenters... Read More
Scan from pp.156 of the "Russian Calendar" for 1915, a yearly publication from Alexander Suvorin's publishing house that ran from 1872-1917* that has been making the rounds on Runet.

The data is all here: Here is the report [big PDF]. Here is the PISA 2018 data for comparison. *** No particular surprises, with adjustment for the usual TIMSS quirks (East Asia & ex-USSR do systemically better than on PISA, Western countries do worse). Obligatory reminder to take this test FWIW (i.e., less than PISA):... Read More
So a Chechen refugee who was brutally persecuted by evil Russian occupiers and forced to flee to France recently beheaded a French teacher for triggering him with Mohammed cartoons. Difficult to care much. The French cultural elites, more so even than usual in the West, have long portrayed Chechens as noble freedom fighters against Russian... Read More
Audacious Epigone has pointed out another interesting question from the latest round of the World Values Survey. (I covered religiosity a few days ago). This question concerns the respondents who said they would not like to have neighbors "of a different race" than their own, given as percentages of respondents from a given country. AE... Read More
I am not going to read Yglesias' book. But the one thing I will say for the idea of One Billion Americans is that it's likely the only way, even theoretically, that the US can remain competitive with China in later 21 century, as it translates its high human capital into per capita convergence and... Read More
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... Read More
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
Gebremedhin, Samson. 2015. “Multiple Births in Sub-Saharan Africa: Epidemiology, Postnatal Survival, and Growth Pattern.” Twin Research and Human Genetics: The Official Journal of the International Society for Twin Studies 18 (1): 100–107. The rate of multiple births in Sub-Saharan Africa is 1.7x that of European levels (h/t Emil Kirkegaard): The multiple birth rate in SSA... Read More

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.
