    It was sheer coincidence, which of course does not exist in the mind of God, that allowed me to take part in this year’s Arbaeen march organized largely by Iraqi Shi'a in Dearborn, Michigan.

    Hilarious - it's got to the stage that organised religion has been so thoroughly discredited that it has resorted to "Well, we're good for something", even when their contribution to "something" was to retard it for 1500 years (until technology prised society from their parastic talons).

    "In the case of Adolf Hitler, Frederic Spots’ Hitler and the Power of Aesthetics provides us with a provocative study of the Fuehrer as artist, thereby giving us a compelling perspective on why the Austrian dictator remains a captivating subject. Spotts grips the reader’s attention from the very start, introducing his topic with a photograph (one that I had never seen before) of Hitler literally on the edge of his seat, staring intently from near ground level at a very large architect’s model of Linz, the Fuehrer’s adopted home town, “as it will look after being transformed into the culture centre of Europe.”


    The photograph, Spotts tells us, was taken on February 13, 1945, in the bowels of the Fuehrerbunker, beneath the Reich chancellery in Berlin. Even in extremis, Hitler fretted over the details of the city plans, apparently oblivious to the fact that they would never be brought to reality.
    Hitler and the Power of Aesthetics is a study of Adolf Hitler that focuses upon “his aesthetic nature”. Spotts recounts the story of Albert Speer’s secretary, who testified later that shortly after the beginning of the Second World War, she had overheard Hitler state that “We must end this war quickly. We don’t want war; we want to build.”

    The appearance of Adolf Hitler on the German political scene in the 1920’s was a classic case—perhaps the classic case—of the hour producing the man. As Spotts points out quite elegantly, much of Hitler’s appeal lay in the promise he offered to produce order, security and protection from modernity, and when he spoke on this subject, he did so not only from his own heart, but to the hearts of many others, both within and without Germany.
    On the particular subject of artistic expression, Hitler saw himself as the savior of western civilization itself, and as Fuehrer and first artist in the land, he urged other artists to inspire the public by making their work more accessible. The difficulty was that the art which Hitler wanted to be readily available to the public was the art that he liked. In the modern world, neither the public nor the artists themselves could be relied upon to share the Fuehrer’s artistic tastes. It is probably no coincidence that the first of Hitler’s artistic talents treated by Spotts is that of public speaking.
    The author characterizes the dictator’s speeches as “the most potent expression of [Hitler’s] artistic talents and the key to his rise to power.” As with every aspect of his political career, Hitler left absolutely nothing to chance with respect to his public speaking engagements. He carefully orchestrated every aspect of his delivery—facial expression, posture, gestures—practicing them by the hour until he was satisfied about their potential for positive impact on his audience.
    The most important of his speaking talents, however, was his evidently innate ability to sense the emotional mood of his audience, to connect with that mood, and to mesmerize his audience through that connection. Hitler was his own speechwriter and choreographer, and his goal was always to create an emotional impact, rather than deal with concrete issues.
    Once Hitler attained power, and at least until the coming of war in the fall of 1939, he was so concerned with anything and everything with a public profile that it was difficult for insiders to know whether the Fuehrer’s involvement defined a particular thing as work or pleasure, official or personal, pastime or governing.
    Cultural matters interested Hitler most, and in order to control those matters he inaugurated a Reich Culture Chamber in November 1933. Membership was obligatory for every artist in the Reich, but in fact the overwhelming majority of artists and other professionals in the field, such as critics, writers and academics, wanted to be associated with the new political order, for obvious reasons.
    It was not a bad thing to be an artist in the Third Reich. Adolf Hitler was never happier than when he was in the company of artists; as one of his hangers-on remembered, it was only during such interludes that his “inapproachability was destroyed.” It is often said that Hitler did not like to smile, at least in part because he felt embarrassed in some way about the appearance of his teeth.
    And indeed it is difficult to find a photograph of the dictator smiling, yet the Spotts book has at least two such images, in one of which Hitler is positively beaming. In each of those images the Fuehrer is in a social situation with a number of fellow artists. Hitler subsidized individual artists and art institutions with funds from the fortune he had amassed since becoming Reich Chancellor. The Fuehrer appropriated for himself alone the legal right to confer such things as titles, honors, and honorary professorships, all of which he freely bestowed on favored painters, actors and musicians.
    The dictator was even capable of laying aside his rabid anti-Semitism when it came to artists; in addition to other Jewish artists, Hitler protected high-profile Jews, such as Gustav Mahler and Max Reinhardt. He also forgave criminal conduct engaged in by artists, including even political crimes like homosexuality.
    And perhaps most remarkably, artists were the only persons whom Adolf Hitler exempted from military service. According to the evidence sifted by Spotts, Hitler’s minions maintained a list of at least 20,000 artists who were off-limits for both conscription and volunteering for service, with more individuals being continuously added. Hitler would not acquiesce in calls from Goebbels and Speer to dispense with his protection of artists even after the disaster at Stalingrad and the subsequent commitment to harness the entire German population and economy for “total war”.
    Finally, there was the curious case of Adolf Hitler and “modern art”. Hitler considered any and all artistic movements whose beginnings occurred after 1910 to be “modern art”. According to Spotts, Hitler despised modern art because it was “thought-provoking, unconventional, uncomfortable, shocking, abstract, pessimistic, distorted, cynical, enigmatic, disorderly, freakish.” And for a man whose towering fits of rage are the stuff of legend, the most spectacular exhibitions of anger were provoked by “modern art”.
    In 1937, the Fuehrer was the master of ceremonies at the public opening of the House of German Art, one of the very first cultural projects commissioned by him after his accession to power. Hitler delivered the keynote address, and both its tenor and his manner of delivery left his audience in no doubt as to the depth of his dislike for modern art. Raul Rave, the then-acting director of the Berlin National Gallery, was present for Hitler’s address. He observed that “his manner of speaking became… agitated, to a degree that had never been heard even in a political tirade….he foamed with rage as though out of his mind, his mouth slavering, so that even his entourage stared at him in horror.”


    Ironically, however, the dictator was very slow to move against the object of his wrath. In 1933, he sacked the director of the Kronprinzen-Palais, a branch of the National Gallery, and ordered all modern art to be removed from display—but preserved where the public could not see them, rather than destroyed. Nevertheless, the museum continued to discretely exhibit modernist work, and to pursue the acquisition of further such works. Hitler even visited the display a year later, and though he winced at their appearance, he said and did nothing about them. And in 1935, he visited Dresden and toured a local exhibit entitled “Images of Decadence in Art”. According to Spotts, “he found the show such an exemplary display of Modernist horrors that he ordered it to tour the country.” Two years later, Hitler finally ordered the removal of all modernist works from museums in Germany.
    Frederick Spotts’ Hitler and the Power of Aesthetics is a tour de force in both conception and execution. My recollection is that Hitler considered himself to be, above all other things, an artist. Hitler and the Power of Aesthetics makes clear that the Fuehrer never made a more accurate statement in his life. "

    They have four restaurants, three in Cambridge and one in Norwich, so quite a big operation. I presume 'Luis' is "Mr Armstrong".

    https://www.nannamexico.com

    "Our roots and inspiration date back to 1958 in the Barrio Bravo neighbourhood in Mexico City with Luis’s nanna, Margarita.

    The times were hard and even harder for a single mother living in a cramped room with seven kids. Dedication and perseverance were imperative, and my nanna was nothing if not dedicated. One day she decided that having seven mouths to feed wasn’t enough. She was going to feed the entire neighbourhood. So she went into the street, carrying her kitchen table laden with fresh ingredients and set up shop. The rest, as they say, was history, but for us, it was the beginning. The inspiration. Nanna had three principles that guide us today: Buy fresh, Cook simple, Waste nothing. It is with these principles, and her original recipes, that we bring Nanna’s Mexico to the UK in one authentic piece. The smells, colours and textures of nanna’s kitchen are alive in our restaurants and are part of the family legacy we share with our customers everyday."
     
    Here's the Armstrong influence.

    Cooking Together is an initiative that runs one-day workshops in prisons. People employed in a local business work alongside people who are in prison to teach them how to prepare meals for the other people who live and work on their wing. The day concludes with the trained team serving the food they have made and everyone eating together. Being involved in our community in this way gives more meaning to the work of my staff and it exposes people in prison to a trade that is noble and useful. It is part of our commitment to our community that we help people find meaning and purpose in through their work while also creating a qualified workforce.
    I have found people in prison are keen to work hard given the opportunity. A successful business is one that goes beyond profits, where everybody benefits, and I think this initiative is a good example of that.

    Sublimated, low-level hybristophilia is one of the more toxic psychological forces in the Western world these days, mostly because strident feminist rhetoric keeps us from openly discussing, mocking, or criticizing it, at least in the office or in academia (anonymous internet comments don't count). In addition to nurturing insane ideas about criminal punishment, it's probably also responsible for a good percentage of fatal dog attacks, (if we judge by the huge number of naive, unqualified women who inexplicably yearn to own pit bulls).

    Unlike our regular commenter Mr. Whiskey, I don't think this is an inevitable or natural state of affairs- my impression is that affection for criminals as such was widely viewed, both by men and most women, as aberrant and low-class before mid-century feminists terrorized and hectored everyone into crimestop. In any case, there'd be a lot fewer women working this racket if other people in academia were allowed to laugh at them.

    On the one hand, it is a warning to the US as to what it is getting into (it was written during the brutal US conquest of the Philippines), but it does seem to strongly urge the US to go on and take up a difficult and thankless but nonetheless noble task. Similarly, there seems an air of relief that the USA is starting to relieve Britain of its imperial "burden" but also some sense of regret that Britain is fading geopolitically.

    Part of what makes Kipling interesting is that he often does see two sides: on the one hand, he really does believe in white superiority, but on the other hand he often shows not just fondness but even admiration for the subject peoples (cf. Kim or "The Ballad of East and West").

    So, yes, I do know that it is unfair to naively pigeonhole Kipling. But still, in some ways, he certainly was a bloody-minded imperialist!

    Your statements fascinate me. In part because I was around the underclass in America as a young broke man.

    I have questions that a prosecuting attorney such as yourself might be able to answer.

    Why are poor white environments such a sexual hothouse of incest and child molestation? Your average middle-class white does not have the urge to rape a 3 year old. Among the underclass-whites as much as Latinos or blacks-there are constant sex offenses. Why are so many poor people child molesters? No money to pay for sex?

    Why are Opoids so popular with whites but not blacks or Latinos? Why has this drug epidemic hit whites in America so hard?

    What is about crack cocaine that blacks are enamored with? Many whites try smoking cocaine a time or two but most hardcore crack addicts are black. Why do they try and it why do they become addicted? Yet blacks are unlikely to use Opoids.

    Why is out-of-wedlock birth rates now so high for underclass whites? Teens were probably more promiscuous back in the post-hippie seventies than now but out-of-wedlock birth rates were lower then.

    Why are so many blue-collar whites now imitating black thugs? They have to know that prison will be a hell of rape for them by blacks. Why do they commit crimes?

    Why are poor rural whites such lousy criminals? Italians and Russians at least make a living from crime and stay out of jail long enough to buy a McMansion in North Jersey. But rural poor whites get caught every time they commit a crime.

    What is the reason for all of this stupidity.

    Reflecting a demographic shift, 109 U.S. counties have become majority nonwhite since 2000

    From 2000 to 2018, 109 counties in 22 states, from California to Kansas to North Carolina, went from majority white to majority nonwhite – that is, counties where non-Hispanic whites are no longer the majority, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of Census Bureau data.
     
    https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2019/08/21/u-s-counties-majority-nonwhite/

    By 2055, the U.S. will not have a single racial or ethnic majority. Much of this change has been (and will be) driven by immigration. Nearly 59 million immigrants have arrived in the U.S. in the past 50 years, mostly from Latin America and Asia. Today, a near-record 14% of the country’s population is foreign born compared with just 5% in 1965.

    For the first time, non-Hispanic white residents now make up less than half (49.9%) of the nation’s under age 15 population, newly released 2018 U.S. Census Bureau estimates show. The new data highlight the increasing racial diversity of the nation’s overall population, for which non-Hispanic whites now comprise only slightly more than three-fifths (60.4%) of all residents. But the fact that white children under 15 have already become a minority in their age group puts an exclamation point on the fact that the nation’s diversity is percolating from the “bottom up” as the white population ages.

    "Team White’s national majority is finished."

    There is observably no such thing as "Team White". The Alt Right assumes that the creation of the United States was undeniably monolithic. “Europeans” came to North America, conquered and settled. But they were other than united in the beginning by common ideologies. Europeans had their own “redoubts”, ethnically and/or culturally, in the Thirteen States. Remember, the Germans, the Irish, the Italians, the Slavs, the Poles–ALL had been considered at various points in time of unworthy of assimilation and citizenship. HOWEVER, they gradually blended into a new group–Americans–as they immersed themselves into building their political and economic institutions. And, accordingly, the Founding Fathers left open the door for future generations of Americans to weave other groups of people into the American fabric–European and non-European.

    The notion of “whites” or “European-whites” being bound together came about as a result of Social Darwinism and imperialism in the late 1800’s–the distinction that separated “us” from “them”. In this manner, the “lowest-rung” whites were deemed superior in social standing than their darkie counterparts, while at the same time knew full well their “pecking order” within the European hierarchy. The following source offers extensive evidence to prove this point.

    http://science.jrank.org/pages/10962/Race-Racism-in-Europe-French-Revolution-Nation.html

    "Light skin and gracile features are potent attractants, and K-selection is a powerful strategy; it civilized a whole brutal, r-selected world."

    --- Bismullah, Irahman Irahim ---
    Let me recap what I posted at other threads here:
    A religion could be:
    --Aspiration of its founder,
    --Cultural heritage of a people, but more often :
    --to individuals as being and identity, like burqua worn by muslim women in kufir countries
    --Geopolitically, a vehicle of racial/tribal/nationalistic interests.(That arab mohamedan vehicle of power was once hijacked by the Ottoman turks)
    ……..
    The best example of the last attribute was the fact that very 'religious' Saudi saladis allied with the kufir anglos and french to defeat the muslim Ottoman in WW1. Treason of the worst kind but fine with them. Right now islam in Saudi arabia has even decayed into a vehicle for the wealth and power of the House of Saud.
    ……
    Arab muslims often claim petroleum is Allah's gift to the arabs but Allah's generosity is NOT unconditional. My naked winged humanoid belle messenger told me(last night while I slept) that Allah will write off the Saudis with the gift of controlled nuclear fusion to the kufirs.

    Islam will evolve(like some other religions)into something different.

    They used to tell us that the only difference between men and women was biological. That if girls and boys were raised in the exact same manner – same toys and expectations – that there would be no difference in how they turned out – same degree of interest in sports, same career choices, etc.
     
    Thankfully I was exposed to a different "They" than you were. I have extremely strong memories of my early school career: if someone had come at me with "Boys and girls have the same potential" I would have laughed so hard that I would have been expelled.

    Then again, I started school in 1969, in a place that was not infected with idiotic American sociological nostrums.

    By the mid-70s the tsunami of US-sourced sociological horseshit had even reached the centre of Australia, so my poor younger siblings were swept up in it (I was at school back in Ao Tea Roa, oblivious to the tsunami).

    I got back to Australia in 1977, and high schools were still being taught by sensible career teacher-as-vocation people in their 40s (children still got the cane for misbehaving) but primary schools were lost.

    By the mid-90s when I was a university tutor, high schools were lost.

    A decade after that, universities were lost.

    I don't view this as something to worry about. It gives the bottom 9 deciles a cheap way to feel good about themselves - but they still have to compete, and they don't do that very well (otherwise they would be inside the top decile).

    They’ve captured the educational establishment and bureaucracy, who teach and enforce the gender-fluid gospel. They’ve captured the media, which propagandizes it endlessly. Big Business is all on board with the message, and anybody off-message is being denied a platform. The Anglosphere militaries are about to write it into their policies if they haven’t already.

I never saw myself as racists, until today. I fucking got pissed at the European sell outs in Bolivia throwing out a democratically elected president and they went after the indigenous people, beating and burning their homes. They took down an indigenous Bolivian president that inherited a country in debt that the previous European Bolivian president resigned from because he had no money left. He had handed the country's resources to foreign companies and quit. Evo Morales was told he couldn't do any better and was put into office.

    Evo Morales took what that POS left him and turned it around, Bolivia had 6% economic growth every year except this year was lower. If an Indigenous person is doing a good job it's not enough, they would rather destroy or give away their country than have someone they believe is inferior run it. The same way people on here feel the darker shades of people are stupid. But they are wrong because the LeBarons and most white farmers and rancher here, don't go to school because they work on their land. The Mexicans that immigrate north also work the lands and have poor education, but not the Mexicans here.

    Arnieus,

    No country that intends to survive can legalize opiates. The downside (widespread addiction) is simply to great. In the 19th century the British fought two successful war to open China to opiates (while the British banned them at home). The following is a quote about the Opium Wars.

    From "Heroin, Morphine and Opiates" (https://www.history.com/topics/crime/history-of-heroin-morphine-and-opiates)

    "In the British Parliament, William Ewart Gladstone denounced the First Opium War as “a war more unjust in its origin, a war more calculated in its progress to cover this country with permanent disgrace.” Gladstone’s younger sister Helen, it should be noted, suffered from opium addiction.

    China’s losses in the Opium Wars ushered in what was known in China as the “Century of Humiliation,” which ended with the Japanese defeat in World War II and the establishment of the People’s Republic of China in 1949."

    Singapore is often praised by libertarians as being the state closest to the laissez-faire ideal. Its first president and seminal figure, Lee Kuan Yew, made drug dealing punishable by death. The Han people have not forgotten the Opium Wars.

    Yes, sadly young white people are turning into a poor man's negro.

    The parents share a good deal of the blame in this too, especially the fathers, for failing to input the work ethic and civilizational values.

    I absolutely support white interests over all others, but there's no doubt that people of just about all races out-hustle whites, especially younger whites (under 65) on every front.

    That said when a whitey does hustle (like me) he can kick any ass, including the bug asian people. The key is unlocking that potential and it starts with proper, unashamed parenting.

    People have differing capacity for hustle. When I was young I hustled. Now that I’m older, I don’t, and with the perspective of age, I don’t really see the pay-off in hustling outside a few high-risk/high-reward and rent-seeking sectors.

    I see people busting their humps for six figure-incomes, and the vast majority of them just spend what they make to maintain their hustling lifestyle. (If you’re one of those people who banks their surplus income, well done). If you live in a Boomtown like San Francisco or New York, your high earnings will evaporate with cost of living due to competitive demand from all the other hustlers.

    In sum, I think hustling is a bit over-rated. Italy, France and Germany all generate some very good engineering off 35-hour workweeks and a month’s vacation, while Greeks are at work every day, frantically making low-margin dairy products.

    My MacBook Woe: I got up close and personal with city’s snatch’n’dash crooks (aka some bastard stole my laptop): Thief swipes Reg vulture’s computer from under his fingers in cafe – here’s what happened next

    Liberal writer Kieren McCarty (writes some infuriating stuff, some good stuff) gets his MacBook removed in a SanFran coffee den:

    On Monday afternoon, at about 2pm, some bastard stole my laptop as I was typing on it. It was wholly unexpected. I was sat in a coffee shop I often go to in the afternoon to do some work and someone entered my vision from the right-hand side. There was absolutely no hesitation on his part: he grabbed the laptop and immediately took off. I only saw his back.

    There is absolutely no note about the ethnicity of the removal service. So we are looking for POCs.

    First, an unusual degree of thought and planning had gone into it. And second, they took enormous risks for very little payoff. The desk cop I speak to later tells me that the value of the laptop (more than $950) makes it a felony – grand theft – which is punishable by between one and three years in jail.

    You can only get one laptop with this kind of snatch-and-dash effort. I doubt the resale value of an old Macbook Air, no questions asked, is more than $150, which is very little payoff for the risk. It only makes sense if thrill seeking is a key component of the crime.

    Well… yeah!

    In truth, though, the most awful part of the whole experience was how everyone in the coffee shop, save two guys who came and talked to me afterwards, chose to ignore the whole thing and wouldn’t even make eye contact afterwards. Cowards, I muttered under my breath.

    I disagree about the thrill seeking for adults who commit crimes. I think they want the money. If you don't have any, $150 will get you through a few days. For the high school dropout who's not going to school back to school and who can't or won't do the necessary social functioning to find and keep a low paying service job, petty crime is a way of getting by.

    And of course our own low education, dysfunctional adults have to compete for jobs with immigrants who are low education but not dysfunctional. It's a lose-lose situation for the country. There's no economic incentive for the country to spend the money to bring up our own societal "losers" when they can be replaced with docile and willing workers from other places.

    Boston is routinely cited by blacks as the most racist big city in America.



    https://www.bostonmagazine.com/arts-entertainment/2018/09/13/daily-show-boston-racist/

    How racist is Boston? The Daily Show sent a correspondent here to find out, and he stopped by Fenway Park and the Boston Globe to get to the bottom of it.

    “For decades, people have called Boston racist for numerous reasons,” the Comedy Central news and comedy show’s Roy Wood, Jr. can be heard saying in narration for the segment, which aired Wednesday night. “The Red Sox were the last baseball team to integrate. Bostonians violently resisted desegregation. Even in 2017, fans at Fenway Park called Adam Jones the N-word.”

    That was indeed my first thought, but on reading the article it became clear to me that elite corruption is the core problem. However, Israel will most probably try to escalate the tension to an all-out civil war. A weakened Lebanon is to its advantage. It wants Hizbollah with its 150,000 rockets be neutralized. Whether that will succeed is doubtful. Hizbollah is about the only stable factor in Lebanese society and enjoys trust widely.

    Admissions professionals call the tension between giving grants to entice affluent students and using the money to increase diversity with need-based aid the “iron triangle.”

     
    So it's almost as if random diversity doesn't actually make us stronger. Never would have guessed.

    This puts even more pressure on schools just below the top. “In the U.S., income disparity is growing, and we have fewer and fewer Americans in the middle.”
     
    Neofeudalisms next victims: the useful idiots of neofeudalism, like Hampshire College.

    The reality is that these colleges could probably survive if they stopped giving a shit about "diverse" student bodies and targetted some portion of the middle that could pay slightly-above state tuition prices. But that demo is mostly white and Asian, and they don't want to survive that badly.

    …they don’t want to survive that badly

    Agree.

    Most interviewees could scope out the needed changes to attract higher tuition-paying students, and help fundraising; but then they would quickly launch into how awesome it was to help under-served students realize their dream of uniting all of mankind into one happy family through the exploration of outer space etc etc blah blah blah.

    Good work voting with your pocketbook. Hopefully you let them know why you stopped giving money--it gives an impression on the board of directors if enough people do it, and money always talks.

    Question for everyone else, though: how would you teach critical thinking? How would you get young people to look through the lies of the media? How did we formerly do it? It seems like the texts, if any, would still be valuable (though the idea of a critical thinking text seems somewhat oxymoronic).

    There is something wrong with these people. Mother and Father and probably the kids too.

    Here's a suggestion: If you aren't a member of society in good standing and in a good marriage then you don't get to have children. and if you've already had them, well, the least we can do is castrate them as small children so that their masculinity is less likely to be a serious problem for society.

    Females are a rather amorphous blob, it's why humanity descends from about 100 females for every male. Very few women have ever amounted to much - either good or bad. Pretty much every Incredible person has been male. From Genghis Khan to Einstein to Mencken to Gandhi to... do I really have to spell out an argument here that only men matter? Pharaoh...and Moses already spelled it out better than me.

    A small drop of masculinity goes a long way.

    So when it comes to people who have a track record of being troublesome - and both parents do - we ought to revoke their rights to have sons. And if the best society will allow is to chemically castrate them in the name of some laughably ridiculous modern fad then so be it.

    I have an impression, maybe not a correct one, that this usually involves older mothers. The Youngers had to use somebody else’s eggs, violating Nature’s dictum that if you haven’t had kids by the time you’re perimenopausal then you weren’t supposed to.

    As for the complementary theory that the mom is a severe Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferer, I would note the marriage had apparently broken down by spring 2015, which is pre-Trump.

    It's still very possible that the trauma of the end of the marriage and divorce proceedings, in 2015 and 2016, and the acrimony it all caused, led directly to castration path. The Transgender movement was just getting going in earnest by this time, and she must have found it a good tool to bash her enemies -- especially her ex-husband but not necessarily limited thereto -- over the head with.

    The effects of hormone blockers are reversible

    This is not true. Why do I keep seeing this? Hormone blockers, according to Wikipedia “prevent the development of biological secondary sex characteristics, … slow the growth of sexual organs, [supress] male features of facial hair, deep voices, and Adam’s apples.” If you go off of hormone blockers at, say, age 25, will your penis get bigger and your voice deepen to what it would have been otherwise, for instance? Will your jaw and forehead and hand size and upper body muscles suddently develop to what they would have been? And Wikipedia lists a slew of possible scary side effects that need more investigation.

    Will we someday look back on the transgender era with the same repulsion?

    And lobotomies.

    Maybe capacity for and inclination toward abstract thinking isn’t the best criteria for constructing an aristocracy.

    Interesting comment. My impression is that our PhD’s are focused not so much on the right answer as an answer that cannot be proven wrong. In other words, they are generating non-falsifiable hypotheses. A good soft-science example would be transgenderism. Thus, they can publish their “science” and not have to worry about more serious people shredding it empirically. Give your critics a bunch of Jell-o to wrestle.

    We’re over-producing PhD’s so this sort of thing is inevitable. There’s not much new fruit to be picked out there. Particle physics, I’ve read, is practically done as far as new discoveries.

    You're misunderstanding the difference of what's actually significant and what's basically irrelevant. Cause let's face it, taken literally enough there's plenty of "names". Eg, we could nominate Pete Ricketts of Nebraska or Alex Scott from Florida, or one of many others.

    What is important is the Sailer Strategy, and the key takeaway from the Trump Administration is that we can't keep them both. And between the Sailer Strategy and President Trump, the Sailer Strategy is far, far, more valuable to us.

    This is a crucial long-term priority for us, but it directly helps in 2020 as well. The Democrats are are sniffing the KKKrazyGlue with all sorts of ridiculous crap that we could get traction running against if we had anybody but Trump.

    Medicare for All is the most prominent of course, but there's lots of others for a good message operation. Eg, a week or so ago, Liz Warren came out, tentatively but still, for decriminalization of prostitution. This has largely flown under radar so far but it's certainly something that GOP or issue groups could make ads for. But if it's Trump, none of this is going to matter because it's all going to be about Trump and nobody's going to care about the flaws of any other candidate.

    I don’t know anyone who believes that Trump is a careful, subtle, or even a remotely diplomatic politician. Personally I think he’s a walking disaster zone but still a better choice for this country than Hillary was–and that was the choice we had.
     
    I voted for Trump basically for that reason (though tbh I really don't care about Hillary that much; contrary to 1995 or 1985 I think we have a lot more to fear from the liberals outside the political establishment as opposed to inside).

    But, if that was the choice then, it's not the choice now. We can bank everything Trump did for us moving the Overton Window, while still eliminating the personal, political, and policy liability of Trump's person.

But then he seemed to be getting a secondary pituitary/testosterone spurt, so he filled out and his jaw and chin squared up. In reading his Wikipedia entry, he seems to be all over the map and not seeking surgery or hormone treatment. He looks pretty strung out at this point.

    How much of this is driven by white liberal pols tilting further to the left/woke in an attempt to hold on to power in an increasingly nonwhite state? You'd think that would open up space for a right-leaning Latino pol running on an anti-woke, pro-environmental, pro-worker, restrictionist platform. Could you get a majority of Californians behind a platform that included these planks?:

    - Higher minimum wage
    - Steep fines for employers violating labor/immigration laws
    - Eliminating "homelessness" by enforcing laws against vagrancy and giving bus tickets to offenders to a place with free housing, drug treatment, etc. far away in the sticks.
    - A Florida-style wealth tax.
    - Separate male and female bathrooms
    - Keeping strict standards in the university systems, but adding trade schools non college-track young people.

    Pushing nuclear power as an interim solution would be a great way of marrying environmental and economic concerns.

    Also: needs to be young to truly get a mass following going. The leadership of the GOP and the Democrats, on a state and national level, shares a notable problem that relatively few people bring up: they are getting increasingly geriatric. Biden, McConnell, Pelosi, Trump, Sanders, and Warren are all 70+. Schumer isn’t far behind at 68, with Pence ticking in as a relative spring chicken at 60. Not shockingly, there are times where it seems like they genuinely don’t grasp how different establishing your life is now.

    In California, it shouldn’t be shocking that state policy attempts to marry the concerns of aging, largely white Boomers (who can afford to live there because they bought houses long, long ago) with the concerns of big tech, and those of new immigrants of varying socioeconomic and legal status. Local Americans under the age of 50 are the ones who get screwed by the predictable resulting policies, from education to transportation. Probably the most explicitly affected area housing and family formation, because neighborhoods with good schools around are particularly unaffordable.

    What’s truly interesting is that 50-60 years ago, California was middle-of-the-pack when it came to living costs: not the cheapest state in the Union, but not particularly expensive, either. In the 1960s, the place really was as close to the middle-class postwar ideal that you’d expect. Shocking, huh?

    If you like SF as it is, it seems perfectly reasonable to me to not want to allow it to be turned into Manhattan.
     
    Then don't complain about the homeless people.

    The 'housing crisis' in SF (and other parts of California) is due to unwillingness to build new supply. This stems from a) fear of change that is innate to weak, socialist people, and b) a desire to create extreme scarcity.

    California is hilariously under-developed, but the notion that people are homeless because San Francisco government keeps developers from building is not a serious one. You could pave over the whole peninsula, erect buildings 40-stories high by 20 across and subdivide them into 650 sq ft studios, and you’d still have homelessness.

    You can come to my city and watch the steel canyons going up all over the place, and we still have homeless people on every block. Same thing with roads: we’ve been building them since the 1960’s and they are as congested as ever. These are not supply-side problems.

    Fresno median home value is $240K. Can’t people move there?

    Homelessness in the US is a mental illness/substance abuse problem, not a housing problem. And if you drive down housing prices to the point where $500K will get you a whole stadium like in Pontiac, Michigan, then the affluent capitalists and their high-class wives will just move away to another expensive, highly regulated city and pull up the drawbridge after themselves.

    And how do most people get the down payment for that house that costs “only” $250,000? People in this country are worse off than folks seem to think.

    You seem right that homelessness is mostly a problem of mental illness and substance abuse, but it IS getting harder and harder for a hardworking couple — even with college degrees and decent-paying full time jobs with benefits — to save for a house. Especially one in a safe, civilized place with suitable schools.

    If you don’t inherit a house or live with relatives cheaply, you can work hard your whole life and never own a home in a growing number of places in “our” country.

How long will the poor masses of the KSA, including millions of foreign guest workers, tolerate a system designed not merely to enrich the royal family but to entertain wealthy non-Moslem foreigners? Combine this with losing a war to a much poorer Yemen and you have a formula for revolution, civil war, and foreign intervention which will make Syria seem like a walk in the park by comparison. The US is currently sending thousands of troops to the KSA, so American involvement is already a given.

    The US should stay out or just exterminate the entire “royal family” and their hangers—on (tens of thousands of people) and take the oil fields permanently. I prefer staying out, but if they get in, get us something tangible in return. Us being Americans, not Israelis.

    I’m sure they’ll find a third option that leads to no benefit at all for the American people or the world.

    Or perhaps there would have been some way of treating the water to remove the parasitic worms that would have made the distinction between standing water and flowing water moot.

    The barrier to learning is that below 85 IQ, you are mostly a creature of instinct and do not retain knowledge. People at 120+ IQ, like you, are on the other side of a chasm.

    If there was daily rainfall, then teaching the people to collect water in cisterns or barrels would seem feasible. If Haitians can do it, I am sure Africans could do that too.

    Haiti has a terrible problem with contaminated water, but the problem is essentially lack of money. There is clean drinking water to buy, but many people cannot afford it. These people are collecting water from a broken water main.

    The way to teach people not to collect water from muddy puddles is to deal with the leaders and influencers and pay them to teach the others. See below.

    In this case, it’s also a strongly stigmatized pronunciation. Use it, and people will think less of you. It’s not fair, but that’s the way it is.
     
    It is actually a class marker, more than anything. And only people who are judgmental will give it any though, like, perhaps, school teachers.

    But we live in an era when such things have less and less importance attached to them. People like George W. Bush would probably use 'axe' if they felt like it and wanted to sound common.

    Futurama had fun with this:

    One word everybody has a problem with is “comfortable.” Nobody says comfortable; they say comfterble. If we tracked the spelling, it’s a clunky combination of the “f” with the front teeth and lower lip, the “or” at the back of the throat, and then back to the front with the tip of the tongue and roof of the mouth for the “t.” So instead, everybody just puts the “front-mouth” letters together followed by the “back-mouth” letters.

    “Ask” is pretty easy though, so “aks” is perceived as declasse’ ghetto black. Like “skreet” instead of “street.”

    There is no black and white.

    It is just a convention of the English language that Europeans are described as "white" and people of visible African descent described as "black', regardless of the actual color of their skin or hair. This does not necessarily carry over into other languages.

    The convention of calling people with African heritage black is not even particularly old in the English language, but in modern times it has replaced the Spanish word 'negro' (which is the Spanish word for black, if anyone does not know) in the English language.

    Mosquito is the Spanish word for little fly (mosca = a regular size fly, mosquito = a little fly). Perhaps we will soon start calling them little flies.

    We are all on a continuum between albino and black, but what is more significant is whether people have grown up in a particular culture of a particular ethnicity.

    For example, there is no doubt that ghetto blacks who grow up in the United States often acquire a set of behaviors that are regarded as undesirable, and the same may apply in Haiti, but the behaviors may be quite different, as is the language.

    Noticeable in the US is that the majority of 'blacks' seem to speak with a similar accent and vocabulary over vast stretches of this continental nation, whereas 'blacks' in England mostly speak with regional and local accents of the areas where their families live. Perhaps use of a common language contributes to racial integration.

    I think you’re missing something here. All the world over, there is an underlying black speech intonation whether they are speaking colloquial English, French, Spanish, German, etc. Everyone can tell when a speaker is black, with a few outliers.

    For that matter, I can tell the difference in speech between a Northern, urban black and a Low Country, rural black. But the underlying black intonation is still there. They will still sound different from Northern, urban whites and Low Country, rural whites.

    Is this racial/sub-racial intonation neurological, physiological or what? I don’t know, and I don’t think there is any research at all on the topic. Linguistics is one of those academic disciplines, like evolutionary biology, with these “here be dragons” areas that nobody dares to explore.

    This is pure neocon propaganda that does not belong on the respected unz.com. First, the Kurds are not American allies. We have no treaty with them and they've never done anything to help the USA. They are mercenaries hired by our CIA and Israel to destabilize Arab nations in support of a Greater Israel. Turkey is an American ally through NATO, we even have several military bases there.

    Second, the fleeing Kurdish terrorist army will not leave a gap that ISIS will fill. The Turks will be there to maintain control. The Kurds should have agreed to return control to the legitimate government of Syria to prevent this, but refused, as instructed by Israel. Most of these Kurdish fighters came from Iraq and arrived to drive off native Arabs from that oil rich area while hoping to overthrow the progressive Syrian government and leave Syria in chaos.

    Third, Trump didn't green light anything. Turkey had said a Kurdish state along its border was unacceptable, and had threatened to invade for years. It finally announced that it would invade to establish a security zone and relocate Syrian refugees back to Syria. Trump wisely pulled back the day before they attacked rather than leave a few hundred Special Forces riflemen to die. The Turks have more air power in the region and resistance was futile. American soldiers have no legal authority to be in Syria in the first place, nothing from the UN or the US Congress, they are just imperial storm troopers leading Kurd invaders.

    There ought to be mandatory insurance for gun owners, too.

    I don't see why immigrants arriving in the US should not be able to sign up for Medicaid at the welcome desk at the airport or frontier, if they cannot yet afford Obamacare.

    Or maybe the solution to immigrants costing the country so much for healthcare is to reform the way that health care is paid for. Now there is a great idea.

    In a new interview with the New York Times, Trump defended his knowledge of health care and the Senate’s chaotic attempts to pass a Republican health care bill to repeal (and, perhaps, replace) Obamacare. (On that front, the situation has been changing almost hourly over the past three days, but GOP leaders reportedly plan to hold a vote on some version of the bill next Tuesday. A Congressional Budget Office score of a new version of the Better Care Reconciliation Act was just released Thursday, projecting that 15 million more people would be uninsured next year compared with Obamacare and 22 million more would lack coverage in 2026.)

    But in one eyebrow-raising moment, Trump told the Times that health insurance costs about $1 per month when you’re young. “Because you are basically saying from the moment the insurance, you’re 21 years old, you start working and you’re paying $12 a year for insurance, and by the time you’re 70, you get a nice plan,” he said.

    “[Y]ou know, a lot of the papers were saying—actually, these [Senators] couldn’t believe it, how much I know about it. I know a lot about health care,” Trump told the Times.
