From iSteve commenter JSQ:

Let’s be clear about one thing: even if we “abolish” the police, we will still have police. They will still have a monopoly on violence. They will still make arrests and help prosecutors build cases. They may call themselves something else (“Community Response Team,” say) but they will functionally be the police.

The purpose of this movement isn’t to abolish the police or to enact Catalonia-style anarchy (which I might actually be in favor of), but to destroy the police as a conservative institution. The police are one of the last large, significant conservative institutions in the US; ergo, they must be destroyed. Get rid of the 105 IQ ex-jocks with crew cuts. Bring in the underemployed liberal-arts graduates.

For example, as I’ve been pointing out for years, almost all of the time when the national media falls for a hate hoax, such as Jussie Smollett’s, the local cops keep their wits about them.

That kind of sensible skepticism must end.

The priorities will change too: no more arrests for dealing drugs. Property crime will be put on the back-burner. Expect a HUGE emphasis on white-collar crimes, domestic violence and all kinds of sex cases though. And an emphasis on “disparate impact” in arrests and convictions, which you can achieve by either arresting fewer black men or more white men.

… This movement isn’t about justice or mercy or humanism; it’s about power, and once power has been obtained, it will be about settling the old scores.

    Following the 'proportionate offenders' school model would of course also solve the annoying problems with crime rates: if the 'right kind' of cops are hired, then they'll pursue a model of policing in which the right proportion of miscreants from each race is arrested. And voila --- equality will exist, and utopia will finally emerge, or something.

    In any case, even if it wouldn't work out quite that way, the improved crime rate proportions would lift a heavy load from the progressives' minds, and provide all sorts of useful ammunition for their political programs.

    Actually, what we are looking at is going back to the 1970s template of white ethnic mobs policing white areas, almost the same way black mobs police black areas.

    The odds of violent non-white people (or violent white people, for that matter) taking over places with good real estate simply by being violent are next to zero. Police forces are not all that relevant in the big picture.

    The biggest problem from the human point of view, is all the people stuck living in areas that have lots of violent people who dislike whites or who are similarly racist but in the other direction. Racist cowards, whether white or black, always go after easy victims. That needs to stop. Note that the celebrity creeps supporting mob violence do not care: they must be ignored or shamed into silence.

    Look, the Jews were--still are!--whining about country clubs for God's sake! Take about something private and "doing my own thing".

    The whole thrust of minoritarianism is that the majority--white gentiles--has no right to just go off and do it's own thing.

    Traditional American liberties -- Associating with whom you want. Hire whom you want. Fire whom you want. Living in a neighborhood with whom you want, were dismantled under "Civil Rights". Sending your kids to school with the neighbors kids. Now speaking your mind -- Gone.

    Traditional American Federalism -- States are sovereign in most matters of law. People of cities and towns and counties make the local laws appropriate for themselves. -- Gone.



    The entire thrust of the new "Civil Rights" constitution is that flyover whitey is not allowed to even have self-government much less go off to just "do his own thing".

    Heck, the core concept of whites have their own nations--to be allowed to be separate from any person in the entire world ... is ... fascism!

    No our "elites"--the ideologues an justifiers mostly ((("elites")))--determine what the law is. They will tell you what you can and can not do. And what you *must* do; and behave, and believe.

    I don’t see a black influx into small Midwestern towns happening-what would be the draw? Of course, that’s also the problem for whites wanting to move to them. There’s generally not many job opportunities, and taking up farming requires a significant capital outlay for land and equipment that’s going to be beyond the resources of most people.

    This would be a good time for a few states or municipalities to signal that they will be taking a hard line on looting and rioting, maybe amending state constitutions to protect police departments from woke city councils. I’m not any governors have the nerve to adopt such a strategy, though.

  12. I think that unrealistic hope and optimism has a lot to do with this. People are assuming that cops and the criminal justice system are to blame for a lot of the bad things that happen to black people. Remove them and the bad things go away too.

    Everything the refund the police people say isn’t wrong. Getting more mental health professionals to deal with the crazy people instead of the police is not a bad idea.

    But overall the people who want to eliminate the police aren’t facing facts. They don’t like the facts and want to avoid them by substituting wishful thinking for real thinking.

    I find it hard to believe that many places will do more than a limited reallocation of funds and replacement of police with other personnel, if they even go that far. Wholesale radical experiments with public safety don’t seem very popular.

  13. Oh, it’s going to be much, much worse than that.

    Most cops actually care about who actually stole the money, raped the woman, etc. They are mired in an antiquated world of “facts.”

    That is why they must be gone.

    In our post-modernist world, mere facts are incidental. The Narrative needs a rapist or a racist or even a petty thief — it does not matter who is cast in that role. The Narrative is what matters.

    I have been skeptical that these guys are just Old Marxists retreads, but, on second thought, that is also how life worked under Uncle Joe Stalin. It did not really matter whether some Old Bolshevik was really guilty of the accused crime: the important thing was that the play must go on.

    To ask whether Bukharin, Zamenev, et al. were really guilty is just as silly as asking whether Harrison Ford can really fly a starship. There is a show to be put on!

    Sadly, I don’t think this is new. In 1940, Robert Maynard Hutchins, then president of the University of Chicago, said:


    "In order to believe in democracy we must believe that there is a difference between truth and falsity, good and bad, right and wrong, and that truth, goodness and right are objective (not subjective) standards, even though they cannot be verified experimentally.

    . . . Are we prepared to defend these principles? Of course we are not. For forty years and more our intellectual readers have been telling us that they are not true.

    ... In the whole realm of social thought there can be nothing but opinion. Since there is nothing but opinion, everybody is entitled to his own opinion.

    ... If every thing is a matter of opinion, force becomes the only way of settling differences of opinion. And of course, if success is the test of Tightness, right is on the side of the heavier battalions."

    Oh, no, not *Caltech*... this genuinely saddens me, Dave, it really does. I don't expect much from most big name universities, so I can't profess myself shocked by a lot of what we are reading, but Caltech has always been different. I have always deeply respected the institution as a place of... well, purity, for lack of a better word. Place where you can obsess happily and just get hosed with knowledge. Kind of place I would have liked to have gone to if I were smarter.

    Net losers from this are going to be racially disfavored kids (read, Asians and whites) from working/lower-middle class families who don't have access to or knowledge of reams of extracurricular activities. Standardized testing is one of the few places where everybody's relatively equal. Now, it's increasingly reliant on ultimately subjective criterion.

    The school I attended and graduated from in the early 1970's in Houston appeared to have essentially open enrollment. They did require applicants to take the SAT test, but didn't seem to care what the test score was. Anybody who wanted to enter and could pay the very low tuition and fees could enter. Staying was entirely more difficult: it was a flunk-out school. The openly expressed attitude of the professors was that it is just fine if you flunk-out, there's plenty more where you came from. Most students flunked out in less than one year.

    The school had 30,000 students, but only 3,000 seniors, and about 1,500 graduates in a given year, back then. So, the really bright and barely bright students, and those of us who maybe weren't so bright but kept slogging away, could still gain enty and graduate. The others at least had a chance to seek success. That school and several others in Texas served as a safety valve to release the pressure generated by the frustrations of lower income classes who often believe they have no chance to improve their circumstances.

    Another benefit of that system was the finding of previously unrecognized highly intelligent people who were never able to grow intellectually due to limiting circumstances. Society in general benefits greatly from finding and nuturing those rare stellar intellects that appear in by chance in unexpected places.

Then six years ago the core curriculum was dumbed down considerably, e.g. quantum mechanics was dropped. A lot of pressure from various funding agencies is still being applied on Caltech to conform to the zeitgeist of today. Well, let's hope the graduate school at least will survive for a bit longer.

    Education is currently being asset-stripped, where the asset being sold off is academic prestige, the value of holding a degree.

    In the long run, in this day and age maybe the university model is antiquated. The lecture format is a relic of the days before the printing press. You no longer need to go to some particular building to find a book. The future is self-education, study guides, and accreditation institutions that just do testing.

The school will have many more qualified applicants than it has places for. So it will be able to pick the best Asian applicants, best white applicants, best black applicants, best Hispanic applicants in whatever ratio it wants, just like now.

    Also "interesting" how many of them have been cancelled for something they said or a costume that they wore 10 or 15 years ago. The statute of limitations for serious felonies such as manslaughter (killing someone) is as little as 3 or 5 years depending on the state you are in, but there is no statute of limitations on thought crime.

    Between MeToo and Racial Hatred, lots of Boomers getting cancelled. The Boomer (and even Pre-Boomer) generation has been very reluctant to clear off the stage and make room for younger (and by definition browner) folks. In the old days cancellation was automatic when you reached the mandatory retirement age of 65 but nowadays politicians, news reporters, academics, rock stars, etc. linger on and on well into their geriatric years. This is the younger generations' way of pushing them aside in the hope of taking their places.

    Purges are a feature of every Revolution. Often the ones purged are not reactionary figures but rather radical figures who are just not radical enough - they are in way of other radicals trying to claw their way to the top and so any pretext will do.

    This brings up a point that I brought up in another comment a few days ago. As businesses increasingly move to fire people for controversial speech, one of the safest places for someone with opinions out of the mainstream today is in a government job. There are downsides to working for the government, but at least a person cannot usually be fired for constitutionally protected speech. A government employee who criticizes BLM or points to statistics regarding black crime might attract a twitter mob, but the mob would not be able to get him fired the way that they could get a private employee fired.

    There was going to be a huge demand for private security regardless, because of demographic trends in the US. Now it is just happening sooner rather than later.

    Also, I expect that "cybersecurity" will start getting used as a euphemism for physical security measures against increasing "diversity." Because it sounds like you are defending against bad-white hackers and Russians, even if that is not the case, practically speaking.

    So consider looking for companies that use the term as a euphemism this way, giving them plausible deniability while they pursue a real but unspeakable business opportunity.

    Actually, what we are looking at is going back to the 1970s template of white ethnic mobs policing white areas, almost the same way black mobs police black areas.

    The odds of violent non-white people (or violent white people, for that matter) taking over places with good real estate simply by being violent are next to zero. Police forces are not all that relevant in the big picture.

    The biggest problem from the human point of view, is all the people stuck living in areas that have lots of violent people who dislike whites or who are similarly racist but in the other direction. Racist cowards, whether white or black, always go after easy victims. That needs to stop. Note that the celebrity creeps supporting mob violence do not care: they must be ignored or shamed into silence.

    That list is massive, and probably only scratches the surface. No way can geographically scattered right-wingers make any kind of a name and shame impact on these companies.

    If the right expects to make any kind of headway in these kind of meta wars it needs to focus on one target at a time. Start with something in a vulnerable state (say a money losing liberal university or media organisation) and ridicule it incessantly for a month, then next month on to something else. Picking on small liberal countries is also a good idea, as it would be a big moral booster for local right-wingers if they see the whole conservative world taking the piss out of their wannabe cosmopolitan lefty elites.

    Looking up at the Everest of left-wing political correctness all the time is overwhelming.

My prediction is, if police are truly defunded in urban areas they will become literal no–go zones and if it creeps out into the burbs, you will eventually see revenge and vigilante killings (as well as random ones) of blacks by Latinos, and to an increasing extent, whites. When it becomes clear there are no funds, time nor detectives to work cases, you will really see what people think about race, borders and culture.

    These “conservative” institutions are the only thing that keeps whites in the Tim Crow zone, and a lax in enforcement of major crimes, will eventually lead to something more akin to the early 1900s South, with well-understood boundaries, and lots of killings of those who violate those boundaries, geographically/physically or socially.

  46. Anon[255] • Disclaimer says:

    I agree with about half of the post.

    The local and State Police, as opposed to Federal Police to include the FBI, the Soviet Secret Police, etc, will always skew conservative with time due to the nature of the politics and trials of local policing.

    Meaning that the more frequent low-class criminal-reality that one is in touch with, the more conservative one gets; through a couple of different reactionary mechanisms.

    The psychological impact and observation inherent in dealing with Black crime day in and day out will over-ride the effect of state school liberal arts brainwashing.

    Second, local Police political interests will always be counter to that of the lowest class criminals they deal with on a day to day basis.

    The same dynamic plays out across institutions and even geographically specific populations over time: people are shaped by their circumstances and not the inverse.

    Coastal and urban poulations will always skew heavily liberal because of the international nature of trade and mercantilism, in combination with a large underclass that I offer has at least one primary role of assisting the international merchants in keeping political control over urban areas.

    Federal bureaucrats will always skew liberal because of the dependence of Federal government on tax money.

    Central agricultural populations (out of which the traditional nobility arose, and in contrast with coastal elite owned operations like Koch industries) will always skew conservative because of the fact that international trade undermines the prices for their product.

    International trade also assures immigration of foreign populations that, over time, skew political power toward the cities and away from the farmers.

    Modern suburban and rural populations will skew conservative because they are fundamentally socially and economically opposed to the interests of the urban underclass. You might be an urban liberal, but move to the suburbs and within a couple of generations or less it is likely that your offspring will be MAGA. Circumstances mold people, not the other way around.

    Suburban populations of the wealthiest and most developed cities like Boston, who commute in, are an exception likely due to the fact that there are less poor (ie: Black) people to compete with and that the suburbs are so well integrated into the urban economy. In 2020 those cities are more exception than rule.

    A primary “Deep State”, Liberal-Communist, whatever name you wish to use, goal of the current events is to create a predicate for increasing electronic surveillance of the US population in all parts of their day and for everyone.

    What will happen is that Police will be “defunded”, or reduced in reality, in favor of prison-yard style electronic surveillance of cities to a greater degree than already exists. That’s the point of this: to have a political excuse to increase electronic surveillance of the US population at all times – in the name of racial justice.

    Note that infamous Camden, NJ is being frequently cited by The Left as a model for “defunding Police”.

    What happened in Camden is that it had consistently topped the homicide rate charts in the USA for a couple of decades.

    So they reduced the Police force, because Camden was too dangerous to Police, and set up prison yard style electronic surveillance throughout.

    Instead of Police Patrols, the population are tracked like inmates by Police at a central location. There are also censors installed across the area to detect criminal acts like gunshots.

    It helps toward reducing its crime rate that Camden is small enough that it can be electronically locked down like a prison yard, and the area that needs to be covered by responding Police is small.

    The other policies that were mentioned, like case priority and disparate impact decision making by Police, will certainly be increased. But that will be through increased political pressure from the Federal Government and not an ideological priority of the neckbeard response team. Regardless of what”reforms” are made, the neckbeard response team will become the fash response team over enough exposure to the reality of the US population. Maybe one day they’ll eplace them with robots.

    Central agricultural populations (out of which the traditional nobility arose, and in contrast with coastal elite owned operations like Koch industries) will always skew conservative because of the fact that international trade undermines the prices for their product.

    You are talking about the California growers here? Screw them. There has been and is no more destructive power lobby/clique in this nation than California agriculture. They have both sides begging to be their factotums. You can be sure that right at this very moment, with unprecedented unemployment, they are advocating for more, more, more, more and cheaper, cheaper, cheaper, cheaper immigrant workers. And it is not as if they couldn't strictly hire American, pay living wages. All the costs could, and should, be passed on to the damned consumer. But everything is for their damned convenience. Screw them.

    Yeah, we need agriculture, of course, but if we do devolve into some sort of dysfunctional Soviet state these Kulaks will be the last ones I have any sympathy for.

JSQ’s comment includes this remark about the police…”They will still have a monopoly on violence.” Don’t know where JSQ lives but around here and in Chcago, Detroit, Baltimore, Rochester, Newark, and so on, it is another group that has a monopoly on violence. However. we can no longer point that out.

  49. ‘For example, as I’ve been pointing out for years, almost all of the time when the national media falls for a hate hoax, such as Jussie Smollett’s, the local cops keep their wits about them.’

    Amen. Cops/firemen know that 85% of arsons involve the property owners. When called in to investigate a church fire they suspect the congregation before they get out of their cars.

    Most of the swastikas painted on black churches are painted by blacks.

    So when the local news wrings their hands, first responders know it is probably fake.

    Everything the refund the police people say isn't wrong. Getting more mental health professionals to deal with the crazy people instead of the police is not a bad idea.

    But overall the people who want to eliminate the police aren't facing facts. They don't like the facts and want to avoid them by substituting wishful thinking for real thinking.

    I find it hard to believe that many places will do more than a limited reallocation of funds and replacement of police with other personnel, if they even go that far. Wholesale radical experiments with public safety don't seem very popular.

    The school I attended and graduated from in the early 1970’s in Houston appeared to have essentially open enrollment. They did require applicants to take the SAT test, but didn’t seem to care what the test score was. Anybody who wanted to enter and could pay the very low tuition and fees could enter. Staying was entirely more difficult: it was a flunk-out school. The openly expressed attitude of the professors was that it is just fine if you flunk-out, there’s plenty more where you came from. Most students flunked out in less than one year.

    The school had 30,000 students, but only 3,000 seniors, and about 1,500 graduates in a given year, back then. So, the really bright and barely bright students, and those of us who maybe weren’t so bright but kept slogging away, could still gain enty and graduate. The others at least had a chance to seek success. That school and several others in Texas served as a safety valve to release the pressure generated by the frustrations of lower income classes who often believe they have no chance to improve their circumstances.

    Another benefit of that system was the finding of previously unrecognized highly intelligent people who were never able to grow intellectually due to limiting circumstances. Society in general benefits greatly from finding and nuturing those rare stellar intellects that appear in by chance in unexpected places.

    The "all comers" approach has some merit given the appalling nature of US high schools, but it would be a gigantic pain in the arse for academic staff.

    In today's fucktarded education-sector managerialism, it would be a recipe for low ratings and poor pass rates, both of which influence government funding levels.

    Bear in mind that nowadays, washout students are 'clients' and student evaluations of staff and curricula are collated without assessing whether the student is a fucking moron.


    If it wasn't for equally-fucktarded credentialism - invented in the US and exported globally since the 1970s and now a blight from K-12 to grad school - unrecognised bright kids would find their niche without going to college: it would still be possible to leave school at 15, start your professional life as a bank clerk and work your way up to CEO of the same bank (that's the life story of Neil 'Nobby' Clark - former General Manager & CEO of a major Australian bank).

  58. The police are a task force that suppress the anti social lower class, who are disproportionately black of course. They do this with the understood consent of the rest of us, so that our neighborhoods can be pleasant places to live and work.

    The blacks have a point in that its utter bullshit there are people (and not just blacks) who are in prison for dealing/trafficking marijuana. Meanwhile Kyle and his dad’s money are opening dispensaries on seemingly every block.

    But the truth is blacks and BLM/defund the police don’t truly want to live around most of those people. Like in San Francisco, the middle class leaves these relaxed policing areas because their money isn’t sufficiently insulating. That’s going to be the future for most of us.

    Wow, just wow. At Caltech, the trended accelerated about 10-15 years ago with an increased emphasis on affirmative action, which brought up the percentages of “underprivileged” classes. Then six years ago the core curriculum was dumbed down considerably, e.g. quantum mechanics was dropped. A lot of pressure from various funding agencies is still being applied on Caltech to conform to the zeitgeist of today. Well, let’s hope the graduate school at least will survive for a bit longer. I am curious how school rankings will work now. Is MIT also dropping SATs ?

    It’s nice when you promote comments from your readers. However, JSQ’s perspective is from a Tucker Carlson segment several days ago. As Tucker pointed out, new community-based groups made of leftist busybodies will be able to take much more seriously things like the “violence” and “threat” of certain types of speech. Can’t get UK-style speech codes into law here? No problem, just change the enforcement agency to one that interprets enforcement in new ways.

  62. The frightening thing is you can kinda-sorta get away with soft-glove policing in places like Holland or Sweden, up to a point, of course, because you have such a high quality, law-abiding population. I say “up to a point” in reference to the troubles Sweden now has with “no go zones,” rape, etc.

    What It’s Like to Get Doxed for Taking a Bike Ride

    By Olivia Nuzzi
    JUNE 8, 2020

    By the standards of the pandemic, Thursday had been a normal day for Peter Weinberg. A 49-year-old finance marketing executive, he worked from his home in Bethesda, Maryland, right outside of the District of Columbia, staying busy with Zoom meetings and the new rituals of our socially isolated world.

    Then, around 10 p.m., he received an irate message on LinkedIn from someone he didn’t know. He brushed it off, thinking it was probably just spam. Then he got another. And another. The third message was particular strange, as it mentioned something about the cops coming to find him. Perplexed, he watched as the messages continued to pile up.

    Oh, it's going to be much, much worse than that.

    Most cops actually care about who actually stole the money, raped the woman, etc. They are mired in an antiquated world of "facts."

    That is why they must be gone.

    In our post-modernist world, mere facts are incidental. The Narrative needs a rapist or a racist or even a petty thief -- it does not matter who is cast in that role. The Narrative is what matters.

    I have been skeptical that these guys are just Old Marxists retreads, but, on second thought, that is also how life worked under Uncle Joe Stalin. It did not really matter whether some Old Bolshevik was really guilty of the accused crime: the important thing was that the play must go on.

    To ask whether Bukharin, Zamenev, et al. were really guilty is just as silly as asking whether Harrison Ford can really fly a starship. There is a show to be put on!

    Those of us mired in the outmoded belief in an objective reality are not going to enjoy this.

    This brings up a point that I brought up in another comment a few days ago. As businesses increasingly move to fire people for controversial speech, one of the safest places for someone with opinions out of the mainstream today is in a government job. There are downsides to working for the government, but at least a person cannot usually be fired for constitutionally protected speech. A government employee who criticizes BLM or points to statistics regarding black crime might attract a twitter mob, but the mob would not be able to get him fired the way that they could get a private employee fired.

    I think this used to be true but became complicated under Obama. I still think the rash of maximally high level firings in the late Obama regime were a political purge with cover stories for a completely on-board newsmedia. This is a serious idea in light of what they admit they did to Michael Flynn, who was a top guy targeted with a one hundred per cent made up story that never made any internal sense. Or, it was about as realistic as every single one of our security services completely dropping the ball for decades regarding the guy who was in charge of our nuclear arsenal. Stephen Coughlin (Catastrophic Failure) talks about being forced out for "Islamophobia," and there was that other guy who "committed suicide." After the Flynn revelations it is not "the 'reasonable' thing to do" to doubt stories about extreme radical shifts in the late Obama administration culminating in purges and witch hunts.

    It will be like it is in the UK , where:
    1. Many of the people listed as police are not actual line officers out on the streets. They are bureaucrats sitting in offices coming up with new diversity programs and working on PowerPoint decks.
    2. Of the ones that are on the streets, most are “community officers” (forgotten the actual term) which are there mostly to ticket illegally parked cars, visit delinquents, “improve police/community relations”, etc. These officers are not out after dark because it’s too dangerous(!)
    3. The few that can actually go after criminals are also supposed to do things like mediate Twitter fights (during the day). Result: if they solve what I would call an actual crime (burglary, robbery, rape, murder, etc) it’s unusual.
    4. If the case the cop brings is not utterly airtight the prosecutor will often refuse to prosecute. They are not elected, but they do care about their KPIs, which include successful prosecution percentage after all.
    5. Plea bargaining is unusual outside of the US. It does result in a lot of abuse in the US, but not having this tool makes putting actual criminals in prison much harder.

    Notice that a lot of the proposals are to replace police offices with “community officers”, in other words giving up the night to the yobs (see item 2).

Something that has been happening for awhile. Just look at the mass shooting case in Las Vegas, and the FBI bungling of it after replacing the local cops. Or how about the NYPD investigating Anthony Weiner’s laptop over allegations of pornography? The FBI pulled rank, and poof goes the laptop. The FBI is the deep state’s and Wall Street’s personal goon squad. This is their collective color flag revolution. Nor is it limited to the US. Western Europe is getting the same game plan.

    As the entire nation is about to belatedly discover, federal agents do not need the permission of governors or mayors before they can enter a state or a city to enforce federal laws and arrest those who are breaking them.

    Will they succeed? Hmmmm. They’ve done it to the State Department, FBI, CIA, Army, Navy, Airforce….. But policing is different in that it is very local and prole. Cops are drawn from a local prole community, more or less. Even big city police forces draw their recruits from the adjacent suburbs. So the recruits haven’t been formed by elite university indoctrination, as they have been for US government institutions. Additionally, policing is one of the very few blue collar vocations that can provide a decent salary and benefits for white proles. Despite all the abuse that cops take, proles are eager for the job.

    The left has been trying to exclude white proles from police and fire departments for decades now by inserting biographical evaluations into what should be objective qualifying examinations. Eg. “Has anybody in your extended family ever received public assistance…” The correct answer is Yes, even if nobody in your family has ever been on welfare. Proles are clever enough to game this system. The left will now go further, probe the psychology of applicants but the proles will suss out the “correct” responses and respond accordingly. Whatever, we are in for a decades long battle over the “soul’ of American policing.

Trump's doing this because a) that's how he feels and b) keep some campaign money flowing from some friendly Jewish billionaires.

    2) Trump's administrations' actual American Jews ... well ...
    - Stephen Miller is a smart guy and a patriot, and has been a minor positive influence;
    - Jared Kushner is serves up standard American Jewish liberalism and has been a tremendous negative--a disaster--for Americans and for Trump.

    3) What exactly has been the benefit to Americans from the Israeli victory in the Six Day War?
    ... Uh ... um ... ... uh .... .... well ... uh ... um ...

    I don't have a big problem with Israel. I'm a nationalist and think people are happier in their own nations. It's good for Jews to live in a Jewish nation. But does it benefit non-Jewish me? No.

    Israel is a boat anchor for America. Sucks up billions in aid--admittedly small in big picture government glop--and requires additional aid to Arabs to balance. Makes relations with many Arab and Muslim nations more fraught and requires continual diplomatic tap dancing.

    Are American Jews more favorably disposed toward their fellow Americans as a result?

    If so, i'd sure hate to see how they'd behave otherwise!

    Also "interesting" how many of them have been cancelled for something they said or a costume that they wore 10 or 15 years ago. The statute of limitations for serious felonies such as manslaughter (killing someone) is as little as 3 or 5 years depending on the state you are in, but there is no statute of limitations on thought crime.

    Between MeToo and Racial Hatred, lots of Boomers getting cancelled. The Boomer (and even Pre-Boomer) generation has been very reluctant to clear off the stage and make room for younger (and by definition browner) folks. In the old days cancellation was automatic when you reached the mandatory retirement age of 65 but nowadays politicians, news reporters, academics, rock stars, etc. linger on and on well into their geriatric years. This is the younger generations' way of pushing them aside in the hope of taking their places.

A 49-year-old finance marketing executive, he worked from his home in Bethesda, Maryland, right outside of the District of Columbia, staying busy with Zoom meetings and the new rituals of our socially isolated world.

    Then, around 10 p.m., he received an irate message on LinkedIn from someone he didn’t know. He brushed it off, thinking it was probably just spam. Then he got another. And another. The third message was particular strange, as it mentioned something about the cops coming to find him. Perplexed, he watched as the messages continued to pile up. They were all so similar: angry, threatening, accusatory. His profile views suddenly soared into the thousands.

    He began to panic. He decided to check Twitter. Although he’d had an account for more than a decade, Weinberg didn’t use the social platform very much.

    Truck Drivers Say They Won’t Deliver To Cities with Defunded Police Departments


    Truck drives have been voicing their concerns on the CDLLife App. After reading about their concerns, CDLLife posted a poll on the app.

    We asked drivers on the app, “Would you pick up/deliver to cities with defunded or disbanded police departments? Why or why not?”

    To date, 77% of drivers say they will refuse loads to cities with disbanded or defunded police departments.

    No problemo. Tesla self-driving trucks to the rescue.
    Of course, if a dumpster gets rolled into the middle of the street and halts the truck, it just might get stripped of its cargo. Still, one would assume that loads of work boots and books will be safe. In the food category, veggies may make it through.

  111. No, they mean abolish the police, period. Black people are demanding, and Whites caving, for the following demands:

    Black people are above the law and cannot be arrested for anything. Jeh Johnson told cops not to arrest Black men.

    Black people get free health care (as in Kentucky) but not Whites.

    All leaders and important people must be Black.

    Whites have caved, in massive numbers, to these demands. Whenever Blacks demand, White people simply cave, cower, and grovel and kneel. See Mitt Romney.

    BUT …

    Joe Biden as a result of BLM is a slam dunk to be President. He’s on a pace to win all 50 states and Republicans are in a panic. Loss of the Senate is guaranteed as is most governorships. White voters (well about 95% of White women) LOVE BLM. They love the thrill, the violence, the thuggery. Its why the entire White world went into mourning for a Black thug, part time porn actor, and sometime drug dealer. You don’t get hundreds of thousands of young White women turning out for a dead White math nerd. An aging thug / porn actor who is Black? Yes.

    So Dems have found White people’s weak point — our women enthusiastically want to be Raz’s new sex pet in the new Autonomous Zones. Thunderdome to them is a more downscale Fifty Shades of Grey.

    BUT … the Biden family is a wholly owned subsidiary of China. Think Chinese oligarchs will tolerate their luxury condos bought to stash their wealth outside Xi’s grasp going up in flames? Think they will tolerate the VALUE going down as places like NYC and LA slide into Taxi Driver / Escape from New York lawlessness? Are the Chinese big fans of disorder and Black people? Do Chinese oligarchs (who we are discussing here) have a tendency to give large amounts of their money to Black people or front people to get social acclaim?

    No. They don’t care. The only acclaim that matters is President Xis and his inner circle. Which means regular payments and thus every dollar matters.

    Disbanded police is likely to happen. Rapidly. A way to get Whitey and Trump. But the counter-reaction from Chinese oligarchs is also likely to be rapid. An all Mainland Chinese force imported. Nationalized under Biden. And dedicated to protecting Chinese Oligarch property and with total immunity for anything. Meanwhile Whitey and Latinos are left on their own.

    And this is also important — Latinos who have something: a house, a car, a boat, have investments in them. They are unlikely to be fans of Black violence and chaos. They don’t want to get shot, they don’t want to make payoffs (otherwise they’d stayed in Mexico or El Salvador) and they don’t care about impressing Karen who wants to be a Warlord’s new toy.

    Its a massive struggle baked in — Blacks dominant, Chinese with the money, Whites and Latinos with something to lose and nothing to gain.

    I think that unrealistic hope and optimism has a lot to do with this. People are assuming that cops and the criminal justice system are to blame for a lot of the bad things that happen to black people. Remove them and the bad things go away too.

    Everything the refund the police people say isn't wrong. Getting more mental health professionals to deal with the crazy people instead of the police is not a bad idea.

    But overall the people who want to eliminate the police aren't facing facts. They don't like the facts and want to avoid them by substituting wishful thinking for real thinking.

    There is a contingent here that just doesn't like the Chosen People, and assigns to it the role that blacks assign to The Man. Some of this sentiment is revanchist, in the sense that they believe Jews should be collectively punished for the role they played in the October Revolution. But much of this bunch also thinks there should be no equivalent rancor vis-a-vis the Russians for the role they played after they purged most of the Jews from leading positions in the Party and continued plotting against the free world. Ultimately, it's ethnic prejudice and resentment carried from generation to generation, not hugely different from the sentiment harbored by a good chunk of Jews against the Christians on the right who are supportive of both Jews and the Jewish state.

    There was going to be a huge demand for private security regardless, because of demographic trends in the US. Now it is just happening sooner rather than later.

    Also, I expect that “cybersecurity” will start getting used as a euphemism for physical security measures against increasing “diversity.” Because it sounds like you are defending against bad-white hackers and Russians, even if that is not the case, practically speaking.

    So consider looking for companies that use the term as a euphemism this way, giving them plausible deniability while they pursue a real but unspeakable business opportunity.

    I’ve said before and will say again: all of this is just a temper tantrum. There is no grand plan to defund or deform the police. The worst elements of the Democratic Party are misbehaving, and the Democratic leadership has to pretend to care, has to pretend not to be incredibly embarrassed, and hope that their mock concern gets up the voter turnout in November.

    Fundamentally, they need to keep the cities safe. They need the “105 IQ ex-jocks” in order to do that. We all know what happens to cities when the police don’t do their jobs. The Left may occasionally insert some of its sillier ideas into police departments, but fundamentally they know that they need conservative cops with conservative attitudes towards criminals in order to keep their cities safe – and they hate them for it all the more.

    Come November 4 this will be all but forgotten if Democrats win. If Trump wins again we will be facing a whole new series of riots that will make the current ones like tame by comparison.

A 49-year-old finance marketing executive, he worked from his home in Bethesda, Maryland, right outside of the District of Columbia, staying busy with Zoom meetings and the new rituals of our socially isolated world.

    Then, around 10 p.m., he received an irate message on LinkedIn from someone he didn’t know. He brushed it off, thinking it was probably just spam. Then he got another. And another. The third message was particular strange, as it mentioned something about the cops coming to find him. Perplexed, he watched as the messages continued to pile up. They were all so similar: angry, threatening, accusatory. His profile views suddenly soared into the thousands.

    He began to panic. He decided to check Twitter. Although he’d had an account for more than a decade, Weinberg didn’t use the social platform very much. He mostly followed mainstream news...

    Get rid of the 105 IQ ex-jocks with crew cuts. Bring in the underemployed liberal-arts graduates.
     
    I’ve said before and will say again: all of this is just a temper tantrum. There is no grand plan to defund or deform the police. The worst elements of the Democratic Party are misbehaving, and the Democratic leadership has to pretend to care, has to pretend not to be incredibly embarrassed, and hope that their mock concern gets up the voter turnout in November.

    Fundamentally, they need to keep the cities safe. They need the “105 IQ ex-jocks” in order to do that. We all know what happens to cities when the police don’t do their jobs. The Left may occasionally insert some of its sillier ideas into police departments, but fundamentally they know that they need conservative cops with conservative attitudes towards criminals in order to keep their cities safe - and they hate them for it all the more.

    Come November 4 this will be all but forgotten if Democrats win. If Trump wins again we will be facing a whole new series of riots that will make the current ones like tame by comparison.

    the de-policing agenda, which is not new, is just another step in that process, not the end goal. the left is perfectly fine to allow all police forces to operate as normally as long as they completely ignore vibrant citizens and only enforce the law on europeans.

    Oh, it's going to be much, much worse than that.

    Most cops actually care about who actually stole the money, raped the woman, etc. They are mired in an antiquated world of "facts."

    That is why they must be gone.

    In our post-modernist world, mere facts are incidental. The Narrative needs a rapist or a racist or even a petty thief -- it does not matter who is cast in that role. The Narrative is what matters.

    I have been skeptical that these guys are just Old Marxists retreads, but, on second thought, that is also how life worked under Uncle Joe Stalin. It did not really matter whether some Old Bolshevik was really guilty of the accused crime: the important thing was that the play must go on.

    To ask whether Bukharin, Zamenev, et al. were really guilty is just as silly as asking whether Harrison Ford can really fly a starship. There is a show to be put on!

    Those of us mired in the outmoded belief in an objective reality are not going to enjoy this.

    The good news is that it always self-destructs in the end. Reality ultimately has the final laugh.

    Sadly, I don’t think this is new. In 1940, Robert Maynard Hutchins, then president of the University of Chicago, said:

    “In order to believe in democracy we must believe that there is a difference between truth and falsity, good and bad, right and wrong, and that truth, goodness and right are objective (not subjective) standards, even though they cannot be verified experimentally.

    . . . Are we prepared to defend these principles? Of course we are not. For forty years and more our intellectual readers have been telling us that they are not true.

    … In the whole realm of social thought there can be nothing but opinion. Since there is nothing but opinion, everybody is entitled to his own opinion.

    … If every thing is a matter of opinion, force becomes the only way of settling differences of opinion. And of course, if success is the test of Tightness, right is on the side of the heavier battalions.”

    What was true in Hutchins day is triply true today.

    It goes further than that. Note the video was in reference to how to not get your ass kinked while interacting with police. The acrimony in the relationship between police of all races, and black people, is pronounced. This is likely because of the comedically dependable absence of black fathers in black youths lives, which contributes to the cultural narcissism young black people luxuriate in today, which inevitably leads to "getting their asses kicked" by an overworked and traumatized police force.

    Attempting to rationalize this hard fact, as well as to try to equivocate white people, and their general habits when dealing with a police inquiry, is pure and naked nignance on your part. Just stop it. You’re killing black people.

    You are bringing up an interesting angle. I have not really followed the actual murder case of Saint Floyd, but I seem to vaguely remember that some of the cops involved were fairly new to the job and also had some liberal backgrounds like volunteering for some SJW causes or something. Perhaps, they were still in a state of cognitive dissonance after realizing whom they had to police as opposed to what they had expected to be doing before joining the force.

    However, it is true the cops in America have a justifiable rep of being very trigger happy, but that goes with the territory - lots of people have guns.

    I agree with about half of the post.

    The local and State Police, as opposed to Federal Police to include the FBI, the Soviet Secret Police, etc, will always skew conservative with time due to the nature of the politics and trials of local policing.

    Meaning that the more frequent low-class criminal-reality that one is in touch with, the more conservative one gets; through a couple of different reactionary mechanisms.

    The psychological impact and observation inherent in dealing with Black crime day in and day out will over-ride the effect of state school liberal arts brainwashing.

    Second, local Police political interests will always be counter to that of the lowest class criminals they deal with on a day to day basis.

    The same dynamic plays out across institutions and even geographically specific populations over time: people are shaped by their circumstances and not the inverse.

    Coastal and urban poulations will always skew heavily liberal because of the international nature of trade and mercantilism, in combination with a large underclass that I offer has at least one primary role of assisting the international merchants in keeping political control over urban areas.

    Federal bureaucrats will always skew liberal because of the dependence of Federal government on tax money.

    Central agricultural populations (out of which the traditional nobility arose, and in contrast with coastal elite owned operations like Koch industries) will always skew conservative because of the fact that international trade undermines the prices for their product.

    International trade also assures immigration of foreign populations that, over time, skew political power toward the cities and away from the farmers.

    Modern suburban and rural populations will skew conservative because they are fundamentally socially and economically opposed to the interests of the urban underclass. You might be an urban liberal, but move to the suburbs and within a couple of generations or less it is likely that your offspring will be MAGA. Circumstances mold people, not the other way around.

    Suburban populations of the wealthiest and most developed cities like Boston, who commute in, are an exception likely due to the fact that there are less poor (ie: Black) people to compete with and that the suburbs are so well integrated into the urban economy. In 2020 those cities are more exception than rule.

    A primary "Deep State", Liberal-Communist, whatever name you wish to use, goal of the current events is to create a predicate for increasing electronic surveillance of the US population in all parts of their day and for everyone.

    What will happen is that Police will be "defunded", or reduced in reality, in favor of prison-yard style electronic surveillance of cities to a greater degree than already exists. That's the point of this: to have a political excuse to increase electronic surveillance of the US population at all times - in the name of racial justice.

    Note that infamous Camden, NJ is being frequently cited by The Left as a model for "defunding Police".

    What happened in Camden is that it had consistently topped the homicide rate charts in the USA for a couple of decades.

    So they reduced the Police force, because Camden was too dangerous to Police, and set up prison yard style electronic surveillance throughout.

    Instead of Police Patrols, the population are tracked like inmates by Police at a central location. There are also censors installed across the area to detect criminal acts like gunshots.

    It helps toward reducing its crime rate that Camden is small enough that it can be electronically locked down like a prison yard, and the area that needs to be covered by responding Police is small.

    The other policies that were mentioned, like case priority and disparate impact decision making by Police, will certainly be increased. But that will be through increased political pressure from the Federal Government and not an ideological priority of the neckbeard response team. Regardless of what"reforms" are made, the neckbeard response team will become the fash response team over enough exposure to the reality of the US population. Maybe one day they'll eplace them with robots.

  147. You have to look at this “abolish the police” business – and everything else going on these days – in the context of the loudly announced (particular by Bill Gates) intent to submit the entire human population to “chipping.” Once this is accomplished, and the surveillance technologies to go along with it have been implemented, of course there will be no need for “traditional” human policing anywhere. Crime, as we now think of it, will be nearly impossible (at least impossible to go undetected). Nor will there be much need for ivy-laden college campuses or physical workplaces separate from where on dwells – as we see with the emphasis on online learning and teleworking under the “pandemic” lockdown policies. All of the primal institutions of the era of European imperialist hegemony are being destroyed before our very eyes (as evidenced by the tearing down of statues paying homage to it). So, this “abolish the police” meme is about far more than just abolishing traditional policing and replacing it with another style or name for human policing, such as “community guardians” or some such…at least in the long run.

In black uniform and black handkerchiefed face, a groan-inducing sight.

    It goes further than that. Note the video was in reference to how to not get your ass kinked while interacting with police. The acrimony in the relationship between police of all races, and black people, is pronounced. This is likely because of the comedically dependable absence of black fathers in black youths lives, which contributes to the cultural narcissism young black people luxuriate in today, which inevitably leads to “getting their asses kicked” by an overworked and traumatized police force.

    Attempting to rationalize this hard fact, as well as to try to equivocate white people, and their general habits when dealing with a police inquiry, is pure and naked nignance on your part. Just stop it. You’re killing black people.

    Instagram has really highlighted an abyss between whites and blacks

    Black women can spend all day scrolling through photos of White Women Living Well (with husbands…who stay! even the black instagrammer who went after jewish jessica mulroney is a single mom)

    That’s gotta hurt after awhile…

    I was just perusing a fashion instagram page and they put a photo of a white woman wearing one of their dresses and at least one black responded with ‘tone deaf’

    Instagram is giving black women a look into upper-middle class white women’s lives…and they wanna get some of that…or destroy it…

    “ Look, the Jews were–still are!–whining about country clubs for God’s sake!”

    I see a whole lot more whining about Jewish whining about CCs than any Jewish whining about them, or pre-war American-antisemitism generally.

    Obviously it happens, and you can find it if you want to revel in it. But as a large and wide reader, the most extensive and successful antisemitism campaign I remember the last few years was against Jeremy Corbyn. There was an attempt to do the same against Trump, but it was so nakedly partisan and silly that it fizzled out quickly.

    Lot, you’re clearly not an idiot, but your weakest comments are far and away when someone–me–presses your Jew button. Your resulting comments are always some nonsensical pastiche–like this one.

    Briefly —

    — Yes, the “restricted” country club only comes up only occasionally when it is–yet again–to recite the the sins of white people and the terrible travails of Jews inflicted by American goyim. (There’s no doubt, well fleshed out by me and others, that blacks–slavery, KKK, lynching, Jim Crow, Emmett Till–are the go to minority for minorities attempting to delegitimize white America/Americans.)

    — Nonetheless Jews are still full bore on basically non-existent American “anti-semitism”. They don’t need the golfocaust when they are able to detect the “rising tide of anti-semitism” going on right now!

    As witnessed by ground settling in Jewish cemeteries, Israeli teenagers doing on-line trolling and blacks being blacks. In fairness, after decades of nothing they actually do have a couple of white anti-Semitic attacks. A couple white geniuses who–correctly–realized the Jews, the Jewish establishment work against their interests, but–stupidly–thought shooting up a synagogue was a useful response.

    “There was an attempt to do the same against Trump, but it was so nakedly partisan and silly that it fizzled out quickly.”

    I.e. you can be as obviously philo-semitic as Trump … and if you have the slightest nationalist or anti-minoritarian, they’ll be an “anti-Semitic!” campaign against you. (You have this down as positive! “Hey look their anti-Semitism smear didn’t pan out this time. Winning with Jews.”
    LOL.)

    Losers whine about Jewish power, winners utilize it.

    1) Netanyahu is the winner and the utilizer here. He’s the one who benefits from being on best terms with American power. No American needs Israeli “power”–it’s trivial. Trump’s doing this because a) that’s how he feels and b) keep some campaign money flowing from some friendly Jewish billionaires.

    2) Trump’s administrations’ actual American Jews … well …
    – Stephen Miller is a smart guy and a patriot, and has been a minor positive influence;
    – Jared Kushner is serves up standard American Jewish liberalism and has been a tremendous negative–a disaster–for Americans and for Trump.

    3) What exactly has been the benefit to Americans from the Israeli victory in the Six Day War?
    … Uh … um … … uh …. …. well … uh … um …

    I don’t have a big problem with Israel. I’m a nationalist and think people are happier in their own nations. It’s good for Jews to live in a Jewish nation. But does it benefit non-Jewish me? No.

    Israel is a boat anchor for America. Sucks up billions in aid–admittedly small in big picture government glop–and requires additional aid to Arabs to balance. Makes relations with many Arab and Muslim nations more fraught and requires continual diplomatic tap dancing.

    Are American Jews more favorably disposed toward their fellow Americans as a result?

    If so, i’d sure hate to see how they’d behave otherwise!

    Following the 'proportionate offenders' school model would of course also solve the annoying problems with crime rates: if the 'right kind' of cops are hired, then they'll pursue a model of policing in which the right proportion of miscreants from each race is arrested. And voila --- equality will exist, and utopia will finally emerge, or something.

    In any case, even if it wouldn't work out quite that way, the improved crime rate proportions would lift a heavy load from the progressives' minds, and provide all sorts of useful ammunition for their political programs.

    If the left takes over police departments and tries to bury or stop collecting statistics that reveal inconvenient facts about black crime, they will still have trouble hiding murders and assault. Both will probably go up, and Ron Unz's citywide demographic approach would reveal what ideological police departments try to hide.

    If Trump is anything other than useless, he would publicize the facts about black crime. If he's worried about alienating the small share of black voters he's trying to get, those that are already sympathetic on immigration would be more likely to support him for telling the truth that they already know. They understand that blacks are most at risk from black crime and enabling narratives.

    In absolute terms there are quite a few examples. The only examples where I see more black than white arrestees in absolute terms are: Murder, Robbery, and Gambling.

    The most likely candidates for per capita (I can't tell exactly given the lack of clean breakdown for Hispanics) are all alcohol related crimes: Driving under the influence, Liquor laws, and Drunkenness. For these crimes blacks are around 15% of arrestees. For all other categories they are over 23%.

    I have made this observation about alcohol related crimes before, but don't think I have ever seen a compelling explanation for why these would be so different than all of the other categories.

And which among the number of those past books will be in a queue to be digitized and made available without resort to those particular buildings (or through interlibrary loan)? Well, if they contain BadThink as defined by those in charge of library collections, they will likely never become digitized, and worse yet, they will wind up being purged. Kancel Kulchur is at work here among the many hyperleftists in libraries. They are not going to help perpetuate BadThink, no siree. Physical books take up space, and require care to preserve, so why not let these hyperleftists "curate" what you need to know, and toss those old books into a dumpster? More room for cafes in which you can slurp coffee, and read only "approved literature", conveniently digitized for your reading pleasure.

This is a serious idea in light of what they admit they did to Michael Flynn, who was a top guy targeted with a one hundred per cent made up story that never made any internal sense. Or, it was about as realistic as every single one of our security services completely dropping the ball for decades regarding the guy who was in charge of our nuclear arsenal. Stephen Coughlin (Catastrophic Failure) talks about being forced out for “Islamophobia,” and there was that other guy who “committed suicide.” After the Flynn revelations it is not “the ‘reasonable’ thing to do” to doubt stories about extreme radical shifts in the late Obama administration culminating in purges and witch hunts.

    The difference between WASPs and Jews is this.

    WASP elites imported Blacks as cheap labor, but they never particularly sympathized with Blacks. So WASP elites utilized Black slave labor (and later sharecroppers), but they never pushed racial integration, intermarriage, or Black voting. As long as they had their cheap and servile Black labor, they were happy.

    Jewish elites, on the other hand, did strongly push racial integration, intermarriage, and Black voting.

    WASP elites want to economically exploit their workers, but they never tried to racially or culturally subvert their fellow Whites. Jews, on the other hand, have always been heavily into subversion.

However, Jewish elites still feel affinity for their people, so they manipulate the US govt into giving huge amounts of support (foreign aid, technology, fighting Middle Eastern wars) to Jewish supremacist Israel.

    After the end of WWII, Jews gradually supplanted WASPs in the echelons of power, as they were hungrier and more racially cohesive. So the remaining WASPs were told very clearly that if they wanted to keep their power and status, they'd have to get onboard with the Jewish race/immigration/culture agenda. Or else they'd be purge.

    That's why you saw so many WASP leaders flip very quickly from pro-segregation to pro-integration during the 60s and 70s. They knew that the Jews were the new boss/sheriff in town.

    In recent decades, White racial unity has almost completely collapsed. So elite White Gentiles behave as individual operators, without any sense of affinity for their own people.

    It's a huge myth that elite White Gentiles are infected with "White guilt."

If they were "guilty," they'd feel bad for the long suffering Palestinians. If they were "guilty," they'd support global socialism instead of Western oligarchy.

    The reality is that elite White Gentiles are cool with whatever enriches their personal wealth and power. If that involves slaughtering or exploiting millions overseas, they won't lose a moment's worth of sleep over it.

    Irish Studies programs at North American universities is a growing trend.

    Even liberal universities have Celtic studies departments.

  184. In 1994 when South Africa started it’s descent into the crapper, I decided to emigrate to Europe where my distant ancestors came from 250 years ago, instead of the US, where many were advising me to go. Even back then I could not functionally see any difference with South Africa, except for the black/white ratio. But it’s been clear since the 1980’s that the liberal establishment in the US is racing to get whites under 50%. The media periodically gloats about this. In South Africa it took a century to get whites from 50% to now under 5%. From South Africa we know that an institution with >30% black constituency automatically falls into their hands, since blacks are better at power politics, and have the backing of the establishment. Now I’m glad I made that choice. Europe is also massively damaged, but it’s more a funciton of being a US vassal. Once the US goes into Third World territory, it will no longer be able to maintain it’s empire, and Europe will swing over to Russia. That will automatically bring the old European nationalist forces into power.

There’s generally not many job opportunities, and taking up farming requires a significant capital outlay for land and equipment that’s going to be beyond the resources of most people.

    This would be a good time for a few states or municipalities to signal that they will be taking a hard line on looting and rioting, maybe amending state constitutions to protect police departments from woke city councils. I’m not any governors have the nerve to adopt such a strategy, though.

    There is a contingent here that just doesn’t like the Chosen People, and assigns to it the role that blacks assign to The Man. Some of this sentiment is revanchist, in the sense that they believe Jews should be collectively punished for the role they played in the October Revolution. But much of this bunch also thinks there should be no equivalent rancor vis-a-vis the Russians for the role they played after they purged most of the Jews from leading positions in the Party and continued plotting against the free world. Ultimately, it’s ethnic prejudice and resentment carried from generation to generation, not hugely different from the sentiment harbored by a good chunk of Jews against the Christians on the right who are supportive of both Jews and the Jewish state.

    The reality is that elite White Gentiles are cool with whatever enriches their personal wealth and power. If that involves slaughtering or exploiting millions overseas, they won't lose a moment's worth of sleep over it.

    Well, the Puritanical Protestants did push to ban slavery, that is true. However, they also pushed to repatriate Blacks back to Africa once the Civil War was over.

    So during the Civil War, you had 2 sides.

    1. Southern: Keep Blacks as slaves in America.
    2. Northern: Deport Blacks back to Africa.

    Nobody was talking about intermarriage and bringing more Blacks to America.

    The closest we came to that was during the Reconstruction, when the North took revenge on the South by forcing Blacks into positions of power. However, after about a decade, the North abandoned Reconstruction and made nice with the Southerners.

    For around a century thereafter, Northerners made a sincere attempt to accommodate the South, allowing Southerners to teach their version of the Civil War in schools, install Confederate monuments, and implement their own local segregation laws.

    It wasn't until the post-WWII era when Northern Jews began to push for racial integration and, later, mass non-white immigration.

    Up through a few decades ago, the Confederate flag was considered a totally noncontroversial symbol. It was often featured in tv shows, movies, and music.

    Do you know why the Confederate flag was tolerated?

    It was tolerated because it was a good faith attempt by Northerners to reconcile with Southerners in the post-reconstruction era. There was a sense that hostilities had gone too far between the the two groups, so Northerners wanted to bring Southerners back into the fold. They wanted to reconstitute their national family. Southerners felt like the Northerners were being sincere, so they accepted the olive branch.

    Under that understanding, America was reunified.

    The current war against the South was instigated by Jews, not Northerners. Northerners often go along though, often due to intimidation or bribery. These days even many Southerners go along with this too.

    I think the impact of this on elite institutions will be minimal. Brilliant people will still apply to Caltech, as they have for decades. The school will have many more qualified applicants than it has places for. So it will be able to pick the best Asian applicants, best white applicants, best black applicants, best Hispanic applicants in whatever ratio it wants, just like now.

    How will they determine the "best" applicants?

    The SAT (or equivalent) is how you find the highest IQ kids, which is a huge part of what makes the schools what they are AND , this same selection, is what gives them their value to employers (who are prevented by law from administering IQ tests.

    Caltech tries not to let in students solely on the basis of the SAT. But it is a big part of it. Otherwise, they would just let in kids with cool science-fair projects, and, this may disappoint you, but a lot of cool science-fair projects were actually created by adults, not the student.

    And, how will they know who are the best? The SAT has been the most important single tool they have used. Take that away and they will necessarily make a lot more mistakes --letting in moderately bright kids with good high-school grades and applications but who really cannot hack the old Caltech.

    And so Caltech will decline.

    > blacks are more urban, more likely to use public transit and not have opportunity to drive drunk
    > blacks are poorer, less likely to own a car and thus to have opportunity to drive drunk
    > blacks go to more house parties where they carpool or sleep it off on site rather than to go to bars like whites who risk DUI more
    > blacks are more likely to use drugs instead of alcohol relative to whites
    > black neighborhoods have more serious crimes than alcohol violations that police focus on
    > black neighborhood stores already more likely to be corrupt (food stamp fraud) and minors are known in the hood not to be undercover agents, so no need for fake IDs to buy alcohol

    The difference between WASPs and Jews is this.

    WASP elites imported Blacks as cheap labor, but they never particularly sympathized with Blacks. So WASP elites utilized Black slave labor (and later sharecroppers), but they never pushed racial integration, intermarriage, or Black voting. As long as they had their cheap and servile Black labor, they were happy.

    Jewish elites, on the other hand, did strongly push racial integration, intermarriage, and Black voting.

    WASP elites want to economically exploit their workers, but they never tried to racially or culturally subvert their fellow Whites. Jews, on the other hand, have always been heavily into subversion.

    Why?

    WASP elites were ruling over racially similar people. So it was in their interest to promote White unity and White supremacy, as it solidified their bond with their bond and made them seem benevolent.

    Jewish elites, on the other hand, are ruling over racially distinctive people. So it's in their interest to promote White disunity and White cuckery, while also importing huge numbers of competing tribes. However, Jewish elites still feel affinity for their people, so they manipulate the US govt into giving huge amounts of support (foreign aid, technology, fighting Middle Eastern wars) to Jewish supremacist Israel.

    After the end of WWII, Jews gradually supplanted WASPs in the echelons of power, as they were hungrier and more racially cohesive. So the remaining WASPs were told very clearly that if they wanted to keep their power and status, they'd have to get onboard with the Jewish race/immigration/culture agenda. Or else they'd be purge.

    That's why you saw so many WASP leaders flip very quickly from pro-segregation to pro-integration during the 60s and 70s. They knew that the Jews were the new boss/sheriff in town.

    In recent decades, White racial unity has almost completely collapsed. So elite White Gentiles behave as individual operators, without any sense of affinity for their own people.

    It's a huge myth that elite White Gentiles are infected with "White guilt." If they were "guilty," they wouldn't be so fanatically supportive of genocidal wars in the Middle East, which have killed, injured, displaced, and widowed/orphaned millions. If they were "guilty," they'd feel bad for the long suffering Palestinians. If they were "guilty," they'd support global socialism instead of Western oligarchy.

    Whites cared about the well being of blacks, whom they worked with, lived with, and were responsible for. It was a symbiotic relationship, and blacks enjoyed a standard of living and fertility rates that they couldn’t have attained in Africa.

    Jewish elites, on the other hand, did strongly push racial integration, intermarriage, and Black voting.

    Jews push integration and intermarriage of blacks into White communities, not into Jewish communities. They push for black power over White communities, not over Jewish communities.

Perhaps, they were still in a state of cognitive dissonance after realizing whom they had to police as opposed to what they had expected to be doing before joining the force.

    Modern farming is very capital-intensive, too - anyone trying to do broadacre agriculture without millions of dollars' worth of machinery, would require output prices 20% higher than they could hope to get in the hyper-competitive market for ag outputs.

    But to the Unz audience I say more is necessary. This is really a time for the GOP to have a private, somber moment. There are a few open traffic lanes ahead but they have to think this through to navigate them. Williamson at NRO correctly calls out the statues issue to be a Dem-v-Dem problem - the GOP and it's voters need to get really smart, really fast, and refuse to be baited. There is a legitimate police brutality issue that we not only ignored too long - we took steps to stoke it - and now it's being appropriated to hoist Maoism on the masses and criminalize the law abiding. We have to hew a path between correcting legitimate past mistakes and furiously refusing to submit to Maoism.

    The GOP needs to go back to hand-to-mouth basics: their Democratic colleagues - every one of them - swore an oath to defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic. When American civilians are obstructed from free movement on public, American space - often by armed guards who are abusing Washington's "open carry" laws to use firearms to intimidate and terrorize the public - and when this is aggravated by the intent of those stopping the free flow of commerce and terrorizing civilians with firearms - being an intent to go around or upend Constitutional institutions - in other words: insurrection - then the GOP must hold their Democratic colleagues to account and force them to choose: defend your oath and the American people, or show your hand.

    Police force should be brought to bear so that individuals can move freely - and perpetrators should be arrested and prosecuted - but we must not allow a myopic Trump to give the PRC CCP and our own domestic Maoists a Tiananmen Square. This requires leadership from the GOP that we haven't seen for a long time.

    Any which way - we need to stop reading articles and posting comments and stop being satisfied with ourselves. Whatever their motives, MSM and others are letting a Genie out of the bottle - if we don't move now to put it back the Republic is really at stake in the outcome.

    If Trump is anything other than useless, he would publicize the facts about black crime. If he’s worried about alienating the small share of black voters he’s trying to get, those that are already sympathetic on immigration would be more likely to support him for telling the truth that they already know.

    The school I attended and graduated from in the early 1970's in Houston appeared to have essentially open enrollment. They did require applicants to take the SAT test, but didn't seem to care what the test score was. Anybody who wanted to enter and could pay the very low tuition and fees could enter. Staying was entirely more difficult: it was a flunk-out school. The openly expressed attitude of the professors was that it is just fine if you flunk-out, there's plenty more where you came from. Most students flunked out in less than one year.

    The school had 30,000 students, but only 3,000 seniors, and about 1,500 graduates in a given year, back then. So, the really bright and barely bright students, and those of us who maybe weren't so bright but kept slogging away, could still gain enty and graduate. The others at least had a chance to seek success. That school and several others in Texas served as a safety valve to release the pressure generated by the frustrations of lower income classes who often believe they have no chance to improve their circumstances.

    Another benefit of that system was the finding of previously unrecognized highly intelligent people who were never able to grow intellectually due to limiting circumstances.

    The “all comers” approach has some merit given the appalling nature of US high schools, but it would be a gigantic pain in the arse for academic staff.

    In today’s fucktarded education-sector managerialism, it would be a recipe for low ratings and poor pass rates, both of which influence government funding levels.

    Bear in mind that nowadays, washout students are ‘clients’ and student evaluations of staff and curricula are collated without assessing whether the student is a fucking moron.

    If it wasn’t for equally-fucktarded credentialism – invented in the US and exported globally since the 1970s and now a blight from K-12 to grad school – unrecognised bright kids would find their niche without going to college: it would still be possible to leave school at 15, start your professional life as a bank clerk and work your way up to CEO of the same bank (that’s the life story of Neil ‘Nobby’ Clark – former General Manager & CEO of a major Australian bank).

    Of course, that’s also the problem for whites wanting to move to them. There’s generally not many job opportunities, and taking up farming requires a significant capital outlay for land and equipment that’s going to be beyond the resources of most people.
     
    Not only that, but they probably wouldn't be able to compete with agribusiness economies of scale, anyway. It's my unsubstantiated impression that what remains of family farming is heavily supplemented by other forms of income, such as the quilts and furniture the Amish are known for.

    Replies: @Kratoklastes

    Your intuition rings true, for me.

    More than ten years ago I stumbled across a study claiming that the overwhelming bulk of US farm subsidies go to major agribusiness concerns (the likes of Cargill, which is nominally a family operation).

    Modern farming is very capital-intensive, too – anyone trying to do broadacre agriculture without millions of dollars’ worth of machinery, would require output prices 20% higher than they could hope to get in the hyper-competitive market for ag outputs.

    Interestingly, another thing that #OrangeManBad #Cheeto-in-Chief promised, was to abolish subsidies and farm support to farms with more than a million bucks in annual revenue. Maybe he was just playing 7D-ultraChess.

    I have made this observation about alcohol related crimes before, but don’t think I have ever seen a compelling explanation for why these would be so different than all of the other categories.
     
    I can think of some reasons whites might be more likely to be arrested for alcohol offenses:

    > blacks are more urban, more likely to use public transit and not have opportunity to drive drunk
    > blacks are poorer, less likely to own a car and thus to have opportunity to drive drunk
    > blacks go to more house parties where they carpool or sleep it off on site rather than to go to bars like whites who risk DUI more
    > blacks are more likely to use drugs instead of alcohol relative to whites
    > black neighborhoods have more serious crimes than alcohol violations that police focus on
    > black neighborhood stores already more likely to be corrupt (food stamp fraud) and minors are known in the hood not to be undercover agents, so no need for fake IDs to buy alcohol
    > blacks are less likely to go to college and less likely if there to be in fraternities & sororities party scene

    I think the impact of this on elite institutions will be minimal. Brilliant people will still apply to Caltech, as they have for decades. The school will have many more qualified applicants than it has places for. So it will be able to pick the best Asian applicants, best white applicants, best black applicants, best Hispanic applicants in whatever ratio it wants, just like now.

A 49-year-old finance marketing executive, he worked from his home in Bethesda, Maryland, right outside of the District of Columbia, staying busy with Zoom meetings and the new rituals of our socially isolated world.

    Then, around 10 p.m., he received an irate message on LinkedIn from someone he didn’t know. He brushed it off, thinking it was probably just spam. Then he got another. And another. The third message was particular strange, as it mentioned something about the cops coming to find him. Perplexed, he watched as the messages continued to pile up. They were all so similar: angry, threatening, accusatory. His profile views suddenly soared into the thousands.

    He began to panic. He decided to check Twitter. Although he’d had an account for more than a decade, Weinberg didn’t use the social platform very much. He mostly followed mainstream news...

    No, they mean abolish the police, period. Black people are demanding, and Whites caving, for the following demands:

    Black people are above the law and cannot be arrested for anything. Jeh Johnson told cops not to arrest Black men.

    Black people get free health care (as in Kentucky) but not Whites.

    All leaders and important people must be Black.

    Whites have caved, in massive numbers, to these demands. Whenever Blacks demand, White people simply cave, cower, and grovel and kneel. See Mitt Romney.

    BUT ...

    Joe Biden as a result of BLM is a slam dunk to be President. He's on a pace to win all 50 states and Republicans are in a panic. Loss of the Senate is guaranteed as is most governorships. White voters (well about 95% of White women) LOVE BLM. They love the thrill, the violence, the thuggery. Its why the entire White world went into mourning for a Black thug, part time porn actor, and sometime drug dealer. You don't get hundreds of thousands of young White women turning out for a dead White math nerd. An aging thug / porn actor who is Black? Yes.

    So Dems have found White people's weak point -- our women enthusiastically want to be Raz's new sex pet in the new Autonomous Zones. Thunderdome to them is a more downscale Fifty Shades of Grey.

    BUT ... the Biden family is a wholly owned subsidiary of China. Think Chinese oligarchs will tolerate their luxury condos bought to stash their wealth outside Xi's grasp going up in flames? Think they will tolerate the VALUE going down as places like NYC and LA slide into Taxi Driver / Escape from New York lawlessness? Are the Chinese big fans of disorder and Black people? Do Chinese oligarchs (who we are discussing here) have a tendency to give large amounts of their money to Black people or front people to get social acclaim?

    No. They don't care. The only acclaim that matters is President Xis and his inner circle. Which means regular payments and thus every dollar matters.

    Disbanded police is likely to happen. Rapidly. A way to get Whitey and Trump. But the counter-reaction from Chinese oligarchs is also likely to be rapid. An all Mainland Chinese force imported. Nationalized under Biden. And dedicated to protecting Chinese Oligarch property and with total immunity for anything. Meanwhile Whitey and Latinos are left on their own.

    And this is also important -- Latinos who have something: a house, a car, a boat, have investments in them. They are unlikely to be fans of Black violence and chaos. They don't want to get shot, they don't want to make payoffs (otherwise they'd stayed in Mexico or El Salvador) and they don't care about impressing Karen who wants to be a Warlord's new toy.

    Its a massive struggle baked in -- Blacks dominant, Chinese with the money, Whites and Latinos with something to lose and nothing to gain.

    Well, not true, as the percentage of books that are digitized in comparison to the number of books in print form is way, way low. And you know what, many of those non-digitized books contain some of the most important information requisite toward understanding past societal understandings and cultural practices. And which among the number of those past books will be in a queue to be digitized and made available without resort to those particular buildings (or through interlibrary loan)? Well, if they contain BadThink as defined by those in charge of library collections, they will likely never become digitized, and worse yet, they will wind up being purged. Kancel Kulchur is at work here among the many hyperleftists in libraries. They are not going to help perpetuate BadThink, no siree. Physical books take up space, and require care to preserve, so why not let these hyperleftists “curate” what you need to know, and toss those old books into a dumpster? More room for cafes in which you can slurp coffee, and read only “approved literature”, conveniently digitized for your reading pleasure.

    Look at the right-wingers protesting BLM and statue removal in the UK and the US in the last few days. They're obese, broken down, walking with canes, about 60 years old on the average. It's a demographic battle of the old/white/tired vs. young/non-white/energetic. It's obvious who is going to be crushed. The idea that someone, somewhere is going to "fight back" or "stem the tide" or even make a dent in it is ludicrous. People on the right are in deep denial, thinking they still have a chance.

    The endgame is a rabid anti-racist/anti-white regime equipped with unprecedented power: detailed data on everyone, total control of the police and courts, and the USA's nuclear weapons. It wouldn't surprise me if they started nuking countries for insufficient commitment to anti-racism. That's the level of moral certainty and ardor we're dealing with.

    Nailed it. Their first example will be one of the few based countries like Hungary.

    The elite want a globe populated with easily-led mudmen that are willing to accept minimally comfortable living standards, something along the lines of the typical Central American or North African.

    Inside the USA they will implement a formalized social-financial credit system centered around race and sexual orientation that will be used as a cudgel to encourage whites to miscegenate or avoid reproduction at all.

    The flaw in this plan is that the easily led mudmen are incapable of maintaining, much less of developing, all these fancy high-technology weapons systems this lunatic version of the US would require to bully other nations.

    In that vein anyone can note sponsors of the 1619 Project which, for what it’s worth, strongly supports the views of John Calhoun and the Confederacy, as relates the origins and nature of the United States, and repudiates the country 360,000 union soldiers died to defend – and one can boycott them – while one can also note who is declining to sponsor Tucker Carlson, and do the same.

    But to the Unz audience I say more is necessary. This is really a time for the GOP to have a private, somber moment. There are a few open traffic lanes ahead but they have to think this through to navigate them. Williamson at NRO correctly calls out the statues issue to be a Dem-v-Dem problem – the GOP and it’s voters need to get really smart, really fast, and refuse to be baited. There is a legitimate police brutality issue that we not only ignored too long – we took steps to stoke it – and now it’s being appropriated to hoist Maoism on the masses and criminalize the law abiding. We have to hew a path between correcting legitimate past mistakes and furiously refusing to submit to Maoism.

    The GOP needs to go back to hand-to-mouth basics: their Democratic colleagues – every one of them – swore an oath to defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic. When American civilians are obstructed from free movement on public, American space – often by armed guards who are abusing Washington’s “open carry” laws to use firearms to intimidate and terrorize the public – and when this is aggravated by the intent of those stopping the free flow of commerce and terrorizing civilians with firearms – being an intent to go around or upend Constitutional institutions – in other words: insurrection – then the GOP must hold their Democratic colleagues to account and force them to choose: defend your oath and the American people, or show your hand.

    Police force should be brought to bear so that individuals can move freely – and perpetrators should be arrested and prosecuted – but we must not allow a myopic Trump to give the PRC CCP and our own domestic Maoists a Tiananmen Square. This requires leadership from the GOP that we haven’t seen for a long time.

    Any which way – we need to stop reading articles and posting comments and stop being satisfied with ourselves. Whatever their motives, MSM and others are letting a Genie out of the bottle – if we don’t move now to put it back the Republic is really at stake in the outcome.

    If the left takes over police departments and tries to bury or stop collecting statistics that reveal inconvenient facts about black crime, they will still have trouble hiding murders and assault. Both will probably go up, and Ron Unz's citywide demographic approach would reveal what ideological police departments try to hide.

    If Trump is anything other than useless, he would publicize the facts about black crime. If he's worried about alienating the small share of black voters he's trying to get, those that are already sympathetic on immigration would be more likely to support him for telling the truth that they already know. They understand that blacks are most at risk from black crime and enabling narratives.

    These Americans are responsible for more than half of all homicides, the overwhelming number of those homicides being other black Americans who my Democratic colleagues have simply failed to protect – and these Americans … need-our-help.

    My idea is to add one or two standard deviations to the top end of the SAT for the benefit of Caltech-like schools.

    They are by and large just nerdy HS kids, not Tony Starks. (though Stark went to that better school out east 😎)

    MAYBE ten of them a year have done some independent research or published a paper before they got there.

    Most of them are just smart, high performers on normal high school stuff, maybe did some sports and volunteering. maybe Eagle Scouts. They're the same kids who go to the ivy league just tilting toward the nerdier, math and science oriented ones.

    As such, you can't really pick the smartest ones without some standardized testing. Thing is, even though they won't require it they'll probably still accept SAT. And SAT 2 scores and AP scores... so my guess (w/o having looked into it in detail ) is that they're basically lying and will use the sat or other proxies for most of their admissions, plus throw in some diversity as best they can. Maybe it's an excuse so they no longer have to publish the score stats so they can hide the gap caused by their diversity efforts.

    Not having to go to some particular building to find a book?

    Well, not true, as the percentage of books that are digitized in comparison to the number of books in print form is way, way low. And you know what, many of those non-digitized books contain some of the most important information requisite toward understanding past societal understandings and cultural practices. And which among the number of those past books will be in a queue to be digitized and made available without resort to those particular buildings (or through interlibrary loan)? Well, if they contain BadThink as defined by those in charge of library collections, they will likely never become digitized, and worse yet, they will wind up being purged. Kancel Kulchur is at work here among the many hyperleftists in libraries. They are not going to help perpetuate BadThink, no siree. Physical books take up space, and require care to preserve, so why not let these hyperleftists "curate" what you need to know, and toss those old books into a dumpster? More room for cafes in which you can slurp coffee, and read only "approved literature", conveniently digitized for your reading pleasure. This, the leftist lobotomy, is happening, pretty much as Orwell projected. Another "problematic" institution through which the left needs to march, and a crucial one at that.

    In 1994 when South Africa started it's descent into the crapper, I decided to emigrate to Europe where my distant ancestors came from 250 years ago, instead of the US, where many were advising me to go. Even back then I could not functionally see any difference with South Africa, except for the black/white ratio. But it's been clear since the 1980's that the liberal establishment in the US is racing to get whites under 50%. The media periodically gloats about this. In South Africa it took a century to get whites from 50% to now under 5%. From South Africa we know that an institution with >30% black constituency automatically falls into their hands, since blacks are better at power politics, and have the backing of the establishment. Now I'm glad I made that choice. Europe is also massively damaged, but it's more a funciton of being a US vassal. Once the US goes into Third World territory, it will no longer be able to maintain it's empire, and Europe will swing over to Russia. That will automatically bring the old European nationalist forces into power.

    I’ve tried to find out what the peak white/black% was in SA. Is there anywhere one can see figures?

    The MSM like to emphasise white minority rule in SA but are very coy about the size of the white SA population.

    Friend of mine from Texas leans left.but he just deleted his fb.....I've been thinking about doing the like with whatever tiny social media presence I have.

    I had an obscure YouTube channel few years back....never did much posting but I made a video about refugees raping women on Europe....some random person files a complaint and it was removed.

    After that I made all videos private. Still trying to figure out how to back them up and also how to find another decent site to use to move them to.

    You are bringing up an interesting angle. I have not really followed the actual murder case of Saint Floyd, but I seem to vaguely remember that some of the cops involved were fairly new to the job and also had some liberal backgrounds like volunteering for some SJW causes or something. Perhaps, they were still in a state of cognitive dissonance after realizing whom they had to police as opposed to what they had expected to be doing before joining the force.

    However, it is true the cops in America have a justifiable rep of being very trigger happy, but that goes with the territory - lots of people have guns.

    If they watched a lot of TV they were probably surprised to learn that blacks were even capable of committing a crime at all.

    OT:
    We have the first uncancelling of the George Floyd meltdown.

    https://www.nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-out/munroe-bergdorf-rehired-l-or-al-3-years-after-being-n1228376

    Got fired 3 years ago for racist and inflammatory comment about whites. (Bergdorf was the face of the brand in the UK and hired because black and trans) Insults former employer by calling them racist, gets rehired. Amazing. What's more amazing is he bravely decided to go back to work at the horrible racist place to help make it non-racist.

    He was let go for this:


    Bergdorf said that white people must "admit their race is the most violent and oppressive force of nature on Earth."
    ...
    "Honestly I don't have energy to talk about the racial violence of white people any more. Yes ALL white people," Bergdorf wrote in the post. "Because most of ya'll don't even realise or refuse to acknowledge that your existence, privilege and success as a race is built on the backs, blood and death of people of colour. Your entire existence is drenched in racism. From micro-aggressions to terrorism, you guys built the blueprint for this s---."

     

    I guess white women were ready to hear this now and so Bergdorf is back as the face of L'Oreal UK.

    L'Oreal have also made themselves a big, rich target now. And one they could have avoided if they hadn't posted their 'message of support'. That was the in for criticism. It's a very unsustainable system that attacks people for submitting to it.

    This is silly. Caltech doesn’t need the SAT to be elite any more than Harvard does. It’s Caltech, for Christ’s sake!

    I think the impact of this on elite institutions will be minimal. Brilliant people will still apply to Caltech, as they have for decades. The school will have many more qualified applicants than it has places for. So it will be able to pick the best Asian applicants, best white applicants, best black applicants, best Hispanic applicants in whatever ratio it wants, just like now.

    Abandoning the SAT will hurt unconnected white kids from the sticks, like me decades ago. But gives a damn about them?

    Caltech tries not to let in students solely on the basis of the SAT. But it is a big part of it. Otherwise, they would just let in kids with cool science-fair projects, and, this may disappoint you, but a lot of cool science-fair projects were actually created by adults, not the student.

    And, how will they know who are the best? The SAT has been the most important single tool they have used. Take that away and they will necessarily make a lot more mistakes –letting in moderately bright kids with good high-school grades and applications but who really cannot hack the old Caltech.

    And so Caltech will decline.
