Or, the Accidental Biopolitics of the Culture Wars
Culture wars seem to be everywhere across the West these days. American politics has notoriously been plagued for decades by divisive conflicts over guns, abortion, and gay marriage (now replaced by the exotic trans phenomenon). Europe is also no stranger to such conflicts, whether within or between countries, though in the postwar era these appeared... Read More

He spent 32 years working for large pharmaceutical companies and is a leading expert on viral respiratory infections. He is also a man on a mission, and his mission is to inform as many people as possible... Read More
CRISPR gene-editing expert Eric Lander, Biden’s director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, is awaiting Senate confirmation to serve in a new Cabinet-level position in the Biden administration. Jeffrey Epstein, the eugenicist pedophile and sex trafficker, bragged about funding Lander’s research and was photographed taking part in at least one meeting with him.... Read More

Like the Energizer Bunny, radical egalitarians are a persistent bunch. They have long kidnapped Mother Nature and tried to torture her into transforming human nature, but being a tough old bird, she’s held steady. The latest egalitarian machinations can be seen in New York City where the quest is to equalize race-related academic achievement and,... Read More

When writing of the evils of globalisation, many authors focus on the commercial aspects such as privatisation, with other primarily political components such as the loss of national sovereignty, the destruction of cultures and civilisations and of the family, morality and societies, being perhaps not ignored but not seen or included as integral parts of...

Gattaca (1997) is a dystopian science fiction movie set sometime in the mid-21st century. Mankind is doing a lot of manned space exploration. Genetic engineering and zygote selection have eliminated major and minor genetic problems, from mental illness to baldness. As a smiling black man who works as a eugenics counselor explains to a pair... Read More

“Ah, the rare happiness of times when you can think and speak as you please!” So said the great Roman historian Tacitus and two thousand years later his words still ring true. Just ask the crime-thinker Andrew Sabisky, who has resigned as an adviser to the British government after what the Guardian described as “fierce... Read More
Appalachian white trash, presenting obvious neurological deficits consequent to inbreeding. A clear argument for eugenics.
Most considerations of eugenics, before wobbling off into discussions of Hitler, deal with intelligence and physical characteristics, notably health and strength. By those who constitute the best argument for eugenics, eugenics is usually interpreted as a means of oppressing the poor, maltreating the more bedraggled minorities, and euthanizing the retarded. Most commentators on the matter... Read More

What a technologically tremendous time we’ve been living through this past few decades! That thought was inspired by the death last week of Andrew Grove, former CEO of Intel Corporation, and a key player in the computing revolution of the past half-century. I made my living for thirty years in Big Iron, the grand old... Read More

Ages ago I read Hare and Cleckley on psychopaths, they then being canonical on the matter. Psychopathy tended to be somewhat vaguely defined but usually included lack of empathy, remorse, conscience, and the like. Today, it seems to be detectable. For example, say researchers, if you put a normal person on a polygraph and read... Read More
A Race of Self-Designing Tinker Toys
Mention of eugenics inevitably results in whoops of horror, gnashing of hair, rending of teeth, and discussion of Hitler. Occasionally, however, matters of importance merit discussion even if they lead to Hitler. If by “eugenics” is meant both the selective breeding of humans and genetic manipulation of ourselves, we will shortly have to discuss it,... Read More
Advanced techniques for improving our species
Eugenics has a bad name. Over the past 70 years, its opponents have linked it to racism and even genocide, and some Christians call it a blasphemous attempt to improve on God’s creation. In its heyday in the 1920s, however, eugenics was developed by leading biologists, including the founders of modern genetics. Their work was... Read More

A common piece of advice that I've heard with the release of Nicholas Wade's A Troublesome Inheritance is that in order to get people to accept the findings of HBD, you can't be too honest and direct with the reality of the situation. That is, you can't tell the full scope of the truth of... Read More
The contradiction between the vigorous, unapologeticethnonationalism of Jews in Israel and the horror of other peoples’ ethnonationalism expressed by Jewselsewhere has been a recurrent topic here on VDARE.com—see, most recently, Is Immigration Really A ‘Jewish Value’? by Kevin MacDonald. I think this contradiction is not hard to understand. If you are the ethnic majority in... Read More
This is my 100th blog post. Upon reaching this milestone, I thought that this would be a great time to take moment to look back at my experience as a blogger in Human BioDiversity (HBD) and share my thoughts on the things to come. 1. The Beginning 2. Fertility 3. Immigration and the economy 4.... Read More
Following up on my previous post, a commenter over at Ellen Walker's Complete Without Kids responded to my comment there with this: I wanted to see if this was in fact true. So I took a look at what the GSS could tell me. First, I used the CHLDIDEL variable, which reports the answer on... Read More
China's working-age population is now declining. As labor becomes scarcer, the business community will either take on the challenge of moving to a higher-wage, more capital-intensive economy ... or lobby hard for immigration. (source) We like to compare ourselves with others, often seeing them as an alter ego who had gone to the right university,... Read More
Now that the blogosphere has discovered my finding that conservatives are outbreeding liberals by a rather large margin, many have taken it as a reason to rejoice. The genes for "pathological altruism" (which are a feature of the special evolutionary path that Northwestern Europeans have undertaken, which seems to result in such traits), which gives...

Commenter redzengenoist has brought to my attention that in his homeland of Denmark, policy seems to have accomplished two rather remarkable feats: Fertility among non-Western immigrant women (primarily Muslims) is down to 1.88 children/child-bearing woman, from a high of 3.4. And, more importantly, the fertility rate among educated Danish women has nearly caught up to... Read More
Following up on my three previous posts, I want to talk again about what to do with this HBD knowledge. It is now clear, or at least should be, that demographic issues drive many of our current problems. Indeed, changes in the population drive history, and these changes are the primary reasons that civilizations rise... Read More
Someone brought this to my attention (sensational title and all), and I couldn't resist. All I can say is it's about damned time he said this!

The current (March 5th) print version of National Review carries an exchange between Dinesh D'Souza, a frequent NR contributor, and Ronald Bailey of Reason magazine, about the morality of "genetically enhancing" human beings, most especially by way of custom-designing our children. The exchange follows on from a long piece by Dinesh titled "Staying Human" in... Read More
