Philadelphia, 2011
Voting or protesting, Americans don’t just achieve nothing, they lend legitimacy to their criminal government, for it can declare to the rest of the world, “See, we are a democracy! Our citizens do vote, and they can even protest!” It’s an obvious point I’ve made repeatedly, though clearly into the void, but in my last... Read More

“White supremacist” has long been the preferred Jewish epithet to throw at White people who have the temerity to do what Jews do routinely: openly advocate for their ethnic interests. This hackneyed label has always been utterly beside the point: whether Whites are superior to non-Whites has no logical bearing on the moral legitimacy of... Read More
We should not underestimate the power and logic of globalism. The fact is that, while Western nationalists lament diversity, the West’s wealthiest places are extraordinarily diverse and are growing richer: I am talking about our so-called ‘global cities’. These include such places as New York City, London, Paris, and, beyond the West, Singapore or Dubai.... Read More

New York Times token conservative columnist David Brooks [Email him] think it’s time for conservatives to stop fighting multiculturalism and embrace it. Otherwise, the GOP is doomed. [The Coming G.O.P. Apocalypse, by David Brooks, The New York Times, June 3, 2019] Brooks argues young people are less white and love diversity and immigration. He laments... Read More

It is Time to Stop Celebrating Inadequacy
China has an upcoming maglev train that will run at 373 miles an hour. By comparison, the United States increasingly looks like a country from an earlier age. Pop Quiz: Was this train engineered (a) by heartwarming, puzzled, oppressed, suffering, agonized minorities who ought to be making pizzas, or (b) by the brightest people China... Read More
Dan Siegel: “You want to expand your “circle of identity” so that within the phrase “like me” you include a lot of diversity.”
Fanciful Pseudoscience in the Service of Pathologizing the Covington Boys
In Studying the Jew (2006), Alan Steinweis’s slim, Harvard-published text on the scholarly study of Jews under the Third Reich, the author laments “the perversion of scholarship by politics and ideology” and its service in the goals of “exclusion and domination.” While some of the anecdotal material presented in the book is fascinating, especially its...

Today’s world of higher education is not especially notable for miracles. But I am happy to report of one such miracle—the transformation of diversity from an academic liability to an asset of near incalculable benefit. That this transformation occurred in the space of a few decades and cost only a few million, makes it especially... Read More

This month of course ended with Memorial Day, when we remember those who died serving in our country's armed forces. The Derbs got a more forceful reminder at the very beginning of the month. Around noon on Tuesday, May 1st my son Danny came into the study to tell me a soldier from his former... Read More

“Affirmative action” means hiring people because they can’t do the job well. Near-synonyms are “diversity,” meaning groups that cannot do the job well, and “inclusiveness,” which means seeking people who you know cannot do the job well. These underpin American society, and have ruined education. For some time the sciences seemed less susceptible to the... Read More

Recently, I chewed over the concept of meritocracy some , by way of commemorating Michael Young’s introduction of the word fifty years ago this year.

A Modest Proposal
Can corporate America be forced to end its diversity obsession? Abolishing racial and ethnic preferences has proven difficult enough in higher education and government employment but stopping private businesses from “trying to look like America” seems nearly impossible given their freedom to recruit whoever they want (save, of course, hiring only white males). Are airline... Read More

Diverser is Worser, and Now What?
Gazing out over the chaos of America today, the racial and ethnic antagonism, the hostility over sex and faith and politics–I have never seen anything like it. The country is imploding. The main culprit is diversity–in the broad sense, not just the juxtaposition of races, but the mixing of ideas and philosophies with no dominant... Read More

A company founded by an African immigrant just launched the heaviest payload ever delivered by a commercial company into space [SpaceX launches its powerful Falcon Heavy rocket for the first time, by Loren Grush, TheVerge.com, February 6, 2018]. But rather than celebrating, Main Stream Media journalists/ activists were furious—the immigrant from South Africa is a... Read More

Identity Politics is the ideology of the liberal/progressive/left and the Democratic Party. Identity Politics teaches hatred of white people, all white people. An article last November in the student newspaper at Texas State University declared that white DNA is an abomination. Americans, assuming that they are aware of this hostile statement toward white people, dismiss... Read More

The Virtues of Disunity
A Truth Not Welcome: People do not like being with those different from themselves. Sometimes, briefly, we find it interesting, as in traveling, but for extended periods, no. This distaste pervades society, often unnoticed, with consequences. Instances of untogetherness: People cluster by intelligence. With high consistency, we choose mates of intelligence close to our own.... Read More
Free speech is not doing particularly well on today’s college campuses. The good news is that resistance to the little commissars is mobilizing; the bad news is that this “resistance” consists almost entirely of abstract scholarly essays or grandiloquent soapbox speeches (see here, for example). Indeed, these pontifications have reached industrial scale proportions and scarcely... Read More

A tribulation of following the news is the desperate peddling—it would appall an Amway salesman– of diversity, said to be our strength. Oh? Exactly why it is our strength is never specified. It seems to have brought no benefit beyond crime, rape, and genital mutilation. While the desirability of these advances is beyond dispute, it... Read More

The quest for campus diversity seems to be everywhere--the website thedemands.org currently lists 75 schools where students are clamoring for diversity. Barbara Wilson, the interim Chancellor of the University of Illinois even called diversity central to the university’s mission and such embarrassing nonsense is typical. People familiar with today’s academy know full well why otherwise... Read More

Diversity: Koom. Bah. Humbug
Regarding the unsurprising slaughter in Paris: Diversity is a disaster. Why people cannot see this is a mystery. A country can ignore an unfortunate reality, but it cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring it. Why governments allow and even encourage immigration of incompatible populations is a greater mystery. Few things cause more misery, hatred, death,... Read More

For years I've been pointing out that two bulwarks of Democratic Party campaign fundraising and prestige, Silicon Valley and Hollywood, don't have to play by the Diversity rules that most of the rest of American business is supposed to play by. Every few years since the 1990s, Jesse Jackson would try to shake down the... Read More
