    For as long as I have known about him, I have been fascinated by the Japanese writer and artist Yukio Mishima. I think the first time I heard of him was when my favorite history professor, an older fellow specializing in East Asia, spoke in exhilarating terms of Mishima, all the while naughtily adding :...

    Bushido, Hagakure, honesty + loyalty + dignity, all nice words, but just look inside and you'll find deeply psychotic horror.

    What about:
    Unit 731
    Nanking rape
    The most horrific tortures of defenseless prisoners
    Comfort women
    Deeply-rooted widespread pedophilia with pedophile mangas selling by the millions
    Groping girls on overcrowded public transport as a national sport
    Pregnant whales slaughtered by the hundreds
    Irremovable steady worshipping of the worst war genocidal criminals at Yasukuny shrine

    The typical psycho total lack of empathy for the sufferings inflicted on the most vulnerable beings, either humans or animals, all soaked in the most suffocating conformism.

    Japan's ineradicable mental pedophilia provides the key to understand the center of gravity that holds all the above abominations together: sheer craving for unfettered power.
    At the top the Shogun embodies unfettered power that can claim at will the lives of anybody, included his samurai hitmen’s, just like the King of Dahomey whose subjects mantra was "My head belongs to the King."

    The words "savages" "barbarians" "brutes" are inadequate, maybe "human monsters" or "criminal psychos" can do, however whenever I hear the words “Japan” or "Japanese" I feel very strongly to puke.

    Let me guess: you are either Chinese or Korean. Am I right?

    For no one hates the Japanese more than mainland East Asians.

    And no one loves them more than the badwhites: the neo-nazis, the neo-KKK, the Alt-Right, the members of organized crime syndicates.

    That should tell us something…..

    Nice try, Itzig.

    Japanese, Koreans and Chinese are natural allies, like Germans, Russians and Brits.
    The only ones who profit from fertilizing certain little idiosyncrasies are the YKW.
    So far you have proven disturbingly effective ... but nothing lasts forever.
  • Since the murder of Barnard College freshman Tessa Majors on December 11, the Main Stream Media have been up to their usual tricks. As with the Knoxville Horror and so many other crimes, they have, yet again, downplayed or suppressed outright the racial angle and the savagery of the killers, who mutilated the 18-year-old beauty’s...

    I spend 50+ hours a month on Unz.com while just commuting alone and I consider myself merely a lurker, I might recognize a handful of commenters. Not knowing much else about Sean his posts in this thread seem reasonable and nuanced. He seems accept HBD. He’s just being contrarian on a topic that seems to get lopsided support.

    Anybody want to let me know what’s so bad about this Sean guy anyway?

    He claims that 5 black and brown teens didn’t beat aWhite woman almost to death and are completely innocent of even touching her.

    Her name is Patricia Meili. 12 days in a coma, years of surgery and therapy, they were rightfully convicted.

    Being a woman LEO I don’t like his numerous posts that the defendants in one of the most egregious 5 black& browns on 1 White woman attacks are innocent.

    Sean tried to conflate the recent armed robbery and murder of White woman Tessa Majors by 3 useless black 8th graders with the Patricia Melli case and proclaim the 3 8th graders are as innocent as he claims the 5 black&brown attackers of Patricia Meili are innocent.

    He keeps posting and posting the same liberal idea that blacks and browns either are innocent or justified in hyena pack attacks on a lone White woman.

  • Race has been discussed to the point of weariness, yet most discussion consists of little more than wishful thinking, contradiction, and outright malice: “All the races are equal, but whites oppress everyone else. Then again, race doesn’t really exist, which is why we must strive for greater racial diversity.” It is understandable that many people...
  • @dcite
    I've looked at hundreds of ancient Egyptian portraits. The paintings are ambiguous. The 3-D ones (carvings in stone for example) are a mixed bag. There are those who obviously have sub-Saharan African looks, but most do not. I could cherry pick some very white looking examples, as you have the black looking ones. But really they look like -- Egyptians. They don't look like anybody else really, but they lean more towards a typical middle-eastern sort of Caucasoid type.. In fact, they look much like they do now. If you go to Egypt you will see. The northern part of the country has persons very white looking by north African standards, while the southern part has more black African looks. Just what you'd expect. And Egyptians did differentiate between the black Nubians and themselves by color, as they differentiated between themselves and the light Hittites, by color among other traits.

    Many thanks for the elaborate reply.

    The Black African origin of Ancient Egypt’s civilisation was first established by Senegalese scientist Cheikh Anta Diop in 1954. He did not base his demonstration only on the colour of their skin, as they represented themselves, but also on a large array of evidence stretching to many domains: linguistic, sociological, religious.

    His works led to the Unesco organising the Cairo Congress on the Origins of Ancient Egypt, a gathering that the foremost history specialists attended and got their conventional thesis blown to smithereens by Diop.

    Diop has produced a rich body of works; the problem is that none of his detractors has been able to produce refutations of the same quality.

    To clarify, t “Black Origin” means that the original, first Pharaonic dynasties started in Southern Egypt (Lower Nubia) where there was not, and still there is not, any indigenous “Whites /Caucasoid” population.

    The successive Egyptian human settlements came in the following sequential order, moving South, from Lower Nubia, to North, towards the Mediterranean:
    – Nabta Playa circa 10,000 BC
    – Abou Simbel circa 7,000 BC
    – Thebes (Louxor) circa 3,200 BC

    Ancient Egyptians, of course, merged with their whiter neighbours as they moved North, but they were the ones bringing civilisation along to places where there was none.

    As per the different shades of brown they used to represent themselves, well, we can’t understand it because we are not Black. On the contrary, Native Black Africans do differentiate between the different ethnic groups based on face features and nuance of skin colour, and represented themselves accordingly.
    People from today’s Northern Sudan look different, both in features and skin tone, from those in Southern Sudan. The former are probably the closest cousins to the original Egyptians.

    I think you are confused. It was not Mao per se. it was western communist Ideology and the failure of the command economy which lead to that humanitarian disaster.

    There is nothing more dangerous than western political ideology in the world of ideas. It have killed more Chinese than any guns and opium that White people have used on us. In the 19th century, nationalism was the future so China became a republic which lead to the civil war and Jap invasion when the Ching dynasty collapsed. Then communism came in vogue so China became communist. Western powers is trying to foist Democracy upon us like when they are already abandoning it. It seems like we are coming full circle and going back to fascism and Nazism again in the form of alt-right. We won’t fall for it again.

    A new Win XP install doesn't require authentication directly from Microsoft. If you own the install file, on CD or thumbdrive, and a list of authentication keys, you can install it on as many computers as you wish. No longer true starting with Win 7 and later Windows operating systems.

    Michael Dell and some people at Microsoft either conspired or became incredibly lucky to score a major embarrassment against Gateway 2000 through the dispersion of a “public” valid install key:

    Leaked keys

    A volume license key that was commonly used to bypass product activation in early versions of Microsoft’s Windows XP operating system was

    FCKGW-RHQQ2-YXRKT-8TG6W-2B7Q8.

    This key was part of the first warez release of the final version of Windows XP by a group called devils0wn, 35 days before the official retail release on 28 August 2001. The key is now obsolete, as it has been blacklisted by Microsoft since August 2004, and affected computers will display a WGA notification.[10] It was made famous partly because it featured in a popular image circulated on the Internet before the retail launch of Windows XP. In the image, the key is written on a CD-R containing the leaked operating system and held in front of a digital Microsoft sign counting down the days until the release of Windows XP.

    Users using these keys will receive an error message when they install the latest service pack, and such users are told to obtain a legitimate license and change their product key.

    It worked for the first two to three years of OEM releases of Windows XP install media. They eventually patched the install disks to make it not work-since XP had an unprecedented solid decade of distribution, there are probably dozens of different OEM, retail, demo, developer and other release disks and images (I think they even had it on floppies for a little while!).

  • @Twinkie

    You fancy yourself a literalist
     
    I don't. What I am is informed by scientific evidence, i.e. genetic data, not some preconceived racial framework ("When all you have is a hammer...").

    the above answer is specific and exclusive of German ancestry.
     
    Point to where I write "Jews have no German ancestry." I would never write such a thing, because that would be extremely stupid and uninformed. Reasonably intelligent human beings can surmise that when I write "Jews are patrilineally descended from the Levant and matrilineally descended from southern Europeans," I mean that those regions account for major founders of the population group. It says nothing about minor genetic ancestry from other sources.

    If you were to say, "American whites achieved so much, because they are descended from Slavic Russians!" And I would say in response, "No, American whites are an amalgamation of Brythonic and Germanic populations from Western Europe." That doesn't mean American whites don't have minor genetic contributions from other sources. Now you are saying "Aha! You never said Russian, so you are claiming American whites have no Russian ancestry!" It's baffling I have to explain this.

    there is a correlation between Germanic ancestry and Jewish achievement
     
    Is there? Do present the evidence, please.

    Does the Italian lineage contribute? Perhaps, but not noticeably until the after Ashkenazi were in the Rhineland for 6-700 years.
     
    I have no clue what these jumbled sentences mean. But do note that Jewish communities in Rhineland were legally, culturally, and religiously separated from (and often persecuted by) the larger Christian German populations and the chances (and instances) of intemarriage were very low. Why do you think modern Ashkenazi Jews are prone to genetic diseases that are the result of population bottlenecks and founder effects? It's because of a high degree of endogamy! That's population genetics 101.

    Furthermore, Rhineland is a border area between France and Germany (where the German population is genetically shifted toward the French). Rhinelanders might be pretty insulted to be called "Prussians" or "Eastern Europeans."

    I guess in order to know for sure – we would have to analyze the DNA from the greatest 20th century Jewish minds.
     
    You might want to examine evidence first and then formulate theory, rather than have a theory first and try to shoehorn evidence to fit the latter.

    “Somehow this is verboten” – Aren’t we, right now, at this very moment, in the midst of watching Bret Stephens get unpersoned for speaking openly about the perception of Jewish intelligence?
     
    What is "verboten" in polite society today is ascribing to genetics as a possible cause of higher intelligence, not that Jews are high-achievers due to putative Prussian ancestry.

    By the way, the paper to which Stephens referred was written by Gregory Cochran and Henry Harpending (and Jason Hardy) whose writings are frequently cited on Unz. Here is a quick summary, but you might want to read it in toto before going around ascribing Jewish intelligence to Prussian ancestry (or better yet, just read their book "The 10,000 Year Explosion"): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashkenazi_Jewish_intelligence

    "Natural History of Ashkenazi Intelligence",[1] a 2005 paper by Gregory Cochran, Jason Hardy, and Henry Harpending, put forth the conjecture that the unique conditions under which Ashkenazi Jews lived in medieval Europe selected for high verbal and mathematical intelligence but not spatial intelligence. Their paper has four main premises:

    Today's Ashkenazi Jews have a higher average mathematical and verbal IQ and an unusual cognitive profile compared to other ethnic groups.

    From roughly 800 to 1650 CE, Ashkenazi Jews in Europe were a mostly isolated genetic group. When Ashkenazi Jews married non-Jews, they usually left the Jewish community; few non-Jews married into the Jewish community.

    During the same period, laws barred Ashkenazi Jews from most jobs, including farming and crafts, and forced them into finance, management, and international trade. Wealthy Jews had several more children per family than poor Jews. So, genes for cognitive traits such as verbal and mathematical talent, which make a person successful in the few fields where Jews could work, were favored; genes for irrelevant traits, such as spatio-visual abilities, were supported by less selective pressure than in the general population. Given the high heritability of IQ, 800 years is more than sufficient time for the selective pressure on verbal and mathematical intelligence to produce a 16-point increase in IQ.

    Today's Ashkenazi Jews suffer from a number of congenital diseases and mutations at higher rates than most other ethnic groups; these include Tay–Sachs disease, Gaucher's disease,[13] Bloom's syndrome, and Fanconi anemia, and mutations at the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. These mutations' effects cluster in only a few metabolic pathways, suggesting that they arise from selective pressure rather than genetic drift. One cluster of these diseases affects sphingolipid storage, a secondary effect of which is increased growth of axons and dendrites. At least one of the diseases in this cluster, torsion dystonia, has been found to correlate with high IQ. Another cluster disrupts DNA repair, an extremely dangerous sort of mutation which is lethal in homozygotes. The authors speculate that these mutations give a cognitive benefit to heterozygotes by reducing inhibitions to neural growth, a benefit that would not outweigh its high costs except in an environment where it was strongly rewarded.
     
    Historically illiterate people keep asking why Jews contributed so little to scientific advancements until quite recently (and then there is an explosion of brilliance) - they seem woefully unware of the fact that the Jewish Emancipation in Europe was not until the late 18th century.

    Jason Hardy always seems like he is the Lepidus of this Triumvirate, even in dissident circles. Without looking it up, I don’t know where he is now or what he has done since. That Harpending gets attacked more than Cochran is understandable since there is less to worry about in attacking dead men than ones who are still alive.

    But Germans have no one but themselves to blame for plunging into WWI. Granted, Russians and the French were just as stupid to enter the war.

    I see your point about why Germans may have hated Jews. Plenty of people disliked Jews. But that doesn't explain the Nazi hatred that went beyond pathology. If Jews caused a lot of problems in Germany and if Nazis were merely about restoring order and stability, they would have had less reason to hate Jews once the order was restored. But the hatred never abated, and it had something to do with competing global ambitions.

    Likewise, US and Japan grew to hate one another because both aimed to dominate the Asian Pacific. It wasn't just about particulars but about clashing of general worldviews.

    Also, by the time Hitler consolidated power, he knew Stalin was in charge and that Jews no longer had the power they once did in the USSR. And yet, his hatred didn't abate. It was because Hitler's eye wasn't merely on Germany but the world. He regarded (correctly) Jews as a global rival, and Jews felt likewise. Jews sensed that their defeat in Germany wasn't a local affair as the Nazis had ambitions to spread their dominance far and wide.

    Once the German Riech issued the new Reichs mark and payed off their world war 1 reparations, their fate was sealed. England was intent on ruining Germany forever as an economic power. For the Jews it was about power and money, and their self annointed status as, the Chosen People.

    Israel was supposedly founded as a haven for Jews escaping anti-semitism in goy nations so Jew Jonathan Karten can emigrate there if his feelings got hurt on a U.S. campus instead of trying to make the university setting a safe space for Jews and killing the first amendment through activist judicial rulings which is what his case is designed to do.

    Where's the (((ACLU)))? If Trump's EO was written to protect white university students from libelous claims of white privilege, white supremacy and genocide of the Indians then the ACLU would have sought an injunction within hours and suddenly the anti-white, Jew led radical left would be free speech warriors.

    I've always been intrigued by this IQ thing. Apart from scientific research, I presume that individuals test out of curiosity. I even heard of one guy who included his own IQ in his resumé. Well, this must be an American thing. Anyway, the best way for any group to get out of the radar is to have its members fake their IQ tests, that is, deliberately mark the wrong alternatives. This would probably be a sound group strategy, wouldn't it?

    Well, I can only offer my opinion, which is rather different from the dominant position here. So, just a c-p:

    It all boils down to unreliability of psychometry as such. And I’m not talking about geniuses, bursts of creativity & similar stuff.

    Simply, what those tests should measure is talent, gift, capability for some area. If limited to such, rather narrow field, psychometry tests could very well work.They could show that some people are gifted for numbers, or for engineering tasks, good with words, or good in space orientation etc.

    But it is absurd to derive (I know the argument of factor analysis, but it is bollocks) that some magical number, IQ, is the final product which will show a person’s success in life in general. What is “success”? How can we measure capability of an individual to attain”success” in a given field?

    The answer: we can’t.

    And it is even more absurd to try it with human collectives.

    We all see with our own eyes what different human collectives are capable of, and it is not some magical number that will give us varieties of human accomplishment & functionality of human collectives, given the historical moment, ideas, manners, environment, … and even more- hope, self-reliance, adaptability, stubbornness, morals..

    There are many problems with IQ ideology which remain insurmountable.

    We all use the word “intelligence” & even if we look at psychology dictionaries & agree with it, nonetheless the concept remains vague. Probably there are a few types of intelligence: verbal, arithmetic, geometrical & maybe a few others. Why would we lump these types if intelligence together is beyond my comprehension.

    As for musical ability, various types of talents in other fields…better not call this “intelligence” (social “intelligence, emotional “intelligence”,..). This is a misuse of the word. Ability, talent, whatever…

    Then, there remains the big, big elephant of creativity. Sorry, but creativity is something different & cannot be reduced to any psycho test; it, at its peaks, comes in flashes including intuition, dreaming, imagination,…

    I wanted to say that exceptional mental ability comes in many forms & IQ concept is too rudimentary, too reductionist, too shallow, too unnecessary, …

    Perhaps in some future we will be able to ascertain, experimentally, through neuro-imagining, neurophysiology, brain investigation …. some new aspects & dimensions of human cognition and behavior (emotion, impulse control, ethical development,..) and intuition and imagination and …

    Another way was, to move to the periphery of the Catholic Church's influence and start a money-lending business with the local (and quite needy) aristocracy, as the Italian Lombards did from 1300 on until 1450 in the prospering Upper Rhine region (in the Middle Rhine region too, from ca. 1350 on). The Lombards had been working in the money-business in Italy before and moved as a group of specialists to the Upper and later Middle Rhine and started their new money-lending business in and around Cologne, Münster, and Aachen. They helped the local aristocracy to establish something new and - as it turned out - quite useful: A financial bureaucracy.

    https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lombarden_(Bankiers)  

    Then Luther, Zwingli, Calvin and - the Fuggers dominated the scene (cf. Dieter Forte's great and very insightful play: Luther, Thomas Münzer und die Einführung der Buchhaltung, Basel 1970 - Luther, Thomas Münzer and the Introduction of Accounting - no English translation. A pity - and a loss of insights!)

    I was just about to say something like this, Dieter, when you beat me to it.

    I can add that it continued rather longer than your sources intimate: two direct ancestors of mine were born in Piedmont in the middle of the 16th century, one is even referred to in contemporary documents in the region they went to (the Netherlands) as “de lombart”, and they were both “tafelhouders van leeninghe”, i.e. money lenders and, inevitably, bankers. It seemed to be monopolistic: one of them held the post in Alkmaar, and bought the same position (while keeping the first) in two other towns nearby. Although they went to the northern Netherlands, they were Catholic, and one married into an important legal family which had remained Catholic at the same time as it had remained, too, something like hereditary advisors (Raadsheren) to the famously Protestant Princes of Orange.
    But then the Dutch have always been tolerant where money is concerned. As late as the 18th century the richest family in the very wealthy city of Amsterdam was Catholic.

    Interesting!
    When I thought about these posts here this afternoon on the Reichenau, I wondered why the obvious distinction between lending money out for pawns vs. credits which are only backed by a contract over interest rates hadn't been discussed here more deeply.

    I think that the Church made a useful (=wise) distinction here, which might have turned out to be quite beneficial because the structurally unlimited interest rates allow for much more risk (and societal tensions) in the money lending business then the pawn based version of it. This version is limited by its very nature and might have tamed the longing for ever more money, which is inherent in the structurally unlimited nature of the credit.

    Past wisdom isn't that hard to grasp, but dire nonetheless. What can turn out to be really expensive at times is to ignore the - rational glow?! - of such examples of past wisdom.

    Vicious, violent, Antifa thugs were ((funded)) and facilitated by the local police, to beat and assault those men, simply for protesting their cultural icons being memory-holed.
     
    Yup – this is the price I’m talking about. This is nothing, this is just the beginning:
     
    OK, but at least I hope you'll forgive me if I'd rather it not get to the point where Americans protesting their heritage being destroyed are mowed down in the streets.

    We already know our ((government)) has no compunctions about locking Americans in a church compound and then burning them alive, en masse.

    We already know our ((government)) has no compunctions over assassinating Americans sans due process, if they're considered potentially inconvenient to the ((regime)).

    So, as the forces of diversity and multiculturalism become increasingly militant, demanding that monuments to our collective heritage are affronts to their ascendancy, and must be destroyed, perhaps Americans should question the wisdom of encouraging more and more diversity and multiculturalism.

    Since this change in involving themselves in these issues (along with stuff like LGBT rights stuff), I have stopped giving them any money for years now and have encouraged other Muslims to do the same.
     
    Good on you Talha, but I hope you do see how traditional Americans can be appalled at the arrogance and hubris of foreigners demanding we all repudiate our collective American heritage as something vile and reprehensible, to be summarily memory-holed.

    If given the opportunity, who doubts that this man, (and others like-minded) would hesitate for two seconds to blow up Mount Rushmore, or Stone Mountain, for that matter..

    In exactly the same way the Taliban blew up those magnificent Buddha statues, only the reason for blowing up Mount Rushmore, wouldn't so much be as an affront to Allah, but rather as a repudiation of 'racists' = white Americans.

    The video you sent of the slaughter in Egypt, is a horror, and ultimately, no-doubt the work of Zionists.

    The slaughter-fest and iron boot, that you correctly anticipate happening here, will be no less horrific, and the work of Zionists and their legions of goyim stooges. But my point is.. that perhaps we should question the wisdom of facilitating this ultimate slaughter, (and consequent iron boot on our collective necks), by questioning the wisdom of the Zionists motivating principle and weapon of choice for the subjugation/enslavement of the West = diversity.

    Is New Zealand really so terribly bad off as it is, that they need to import diversity in order to stave off a future of vile harmony and racist national happiness?

    Truth be told, I've already written the ZUS off as doomed to the iron zio-boot on its neck. But it saddens me deeply to think that such is the fate of the entire West, from Helsinki to Santiago.

    And I'm hard-pressed to find one person of color, Muslim, Catholic, atheist or otherwise.. who isn't near rabid in their frothing exuberance to see that happen yesterday. Much like our charming fellow at CAIR.

    For centuries, the white man was on top, his accomplishments the undisputed leader in technological marvels. But with that ascendancy, there was resentment (often justified). Even hatred.

    Now, as the Jewish supremacist is on the verge of absolute domination of the West, (and consequently, the Muslim world), it's with disquiet that I observe the Muslim world giddy at the comeuppance of the white man, knowing what that will mean for his own nations and his own people.

    It seems to me, that such is the hatred for the white man, that POC in general, (including Muslims), are so viscerally full to the brim with genocidal butt-hurt, that they'd welcome their own nations destructions, so long as they could personally partake in the looting and humiliation of the white man.

    Nihad Awad is a Palestinian Muslim born in Jordan. But he was the gall to say “Removal of these memorials would be a small step forward in turning the page on the darkest period in our nation’s history,” Awad also said.'

    "Our nation's history"?

    Who the fuck does he think he's kidding?

    I'll tell you something, as much as I admire your temperament and reasonableness, I despise these assorted foreigners lecturing American whites on our so-called guilt, and demanding we all agree to go gently into that goodnight.

    Now when I see CAIR tossing off about some butt-hurt or other, I dismiss them with the same 'fuck you', as I dismiss those other Palestinians who demand that whitey shut up and die off.

    Like Justin Amash or Rashida Tlaib. What a disappointment that these Palestinians, when they're exalted to power from the ranks of whitey land, return the favor by demanding that whitey accept (even celebrate) their demographic genocide.

    You'd think, (hope) that Palestinians, of all people!, would be sympathetic to the concerns of people being ethnically cleansed by Jewish supremacists. But instead, they're the ones leading the charge, demanding that whitey is vile and guilty and must go!

    Few people have been more adamant about the rights and dignity of the Palestinian people, more than David Duke, for instance. Or those on the Alt-right.

    But seeing how they conduct themselves, as this CAIR scumbag does, it really sort of takes the wind out of my sails for demanding that the Palestinians all deserve self-determination.

    Because if they don't think I, and mine, deserve it, then they can all go to hell, as far as I'm concerned.

    Now when I read that CAIR is whining about bombs this, or 'human rights' that, my attitude is fuck them.

    And I used to be sympathetic.

    The more society has become PC, the more degrading porn has become. Not sure if there’s a direct link but while in porn women are degraded, insulted, and molested,
     
    The change in the nature of porn tracks almost exactly with the rise of the internet. So maybe the real problem is the internet. The rapid acceleration in the pace of social decay in general tracks almost exactly with the rise of the internet. The internet has a degrading effect on every facet of society.

    IRL they have to be respected and shown more consideration than ever.
     
    Not really true. Look at hook-up culture. That's much more degrading to women than porn. Look at the rise of quick and easy divorce - that turned women into commodities to be upgraded every few years. The contraceptive pill and legal abortion encouraged women to see themselves as little more than sperm receptacles. Women are less respected today than they were in 1960.

    The PC thing, like feminism, benefits a few privileged middle-class women. Most women are worse off in every way that counts.

    Blaming porn for all this is just looking for a simplistic answer to a complex problem.

    I really don't think porn is the root cause of our social ills. A great deal of modern porn is distasteful, but then most of modern popular culture is degenerate and disgusting. Maybe the increasing distastefulness of modern porn merely reflects our society's continuing slide into the abyss of nihilism and consumerism.

    I’m a little skeptical of the putative hook up culture. There just isn’t good evidence anywhere that young people are having more sex now than in the past. If anything, the evidence points to them having less.

    • Replies: @LoutishAngloQuebecker
    Yeah I almost think that hookup culture is a total media fabrication.

    Only about 15% of my peers participate in "hook up culture". And these people are unanimously alcoholics, who generally get blackout drunk, high on drugs, and bring a generally below average girl home from the club. 60% sit around feeling bad because they don't "get any pussy". 20% smartly pull out from this altogether

    My conspiracy is that it's designed to make men miserable. Make men feel insecure about their own sex life. Another order from tptb to push it? Maybe not.

    I've dabbled in hookup culture and it sucks. Just go volcel until finding a gf/wife. It also sucks going volcel but it's best to just focus on your own life.
    , @silviosilver
    I agree. But an alternative (or additional) meaning of "hookup culture" could be that merely hooking up without any expectation of developing loving feelings or long-term attachments has come to form a significantly greater proportion of all male-female relationships than before. So even if people are having less sex, it could be that more of the sex they are having is taking place in a hookup context and proportionally less in a dating context.

    Purely anecdotally, in the last 5-10 years I've had far more girls matter of factly disclose to me that they have a "fuck buddy" (argh, hate that term!) or are in an "open relationship", sometimes only minutes after I've approached them, than I can ever recall happening when I was in my late teens/early 20s. Part of the reason for that is almost certainly because I've become better at "game" and at introducing sexual themes into the conversation than when I was younger. But I can't help feeling another significant part of the reason is that girls these days feel more comfortable/secure about divulging their sluthood. (Plenty of girls felt comfortable/secure about that when I was younger too; we're talking about a proportional increase rather than an unprecedented social development.)

    I’m a little skeptical of the putative hook up culture. There just isn’t good evidence anywhere that young people are having more sex now than in the past. If anything, the evidence points to them having less.
     
    It could be like the Sexual Revolution in the late 60s/70s. A small minority of people were having a lot more sex than in the past. Since that minority were having a lot more partners it's quite possible that the average person was having less sex. So I suspect that hookup culture is very real and those who engage it in are probably having an enormous amount of sex while at the same time they may well be reducing the number of available partners for non-participants in that culture.

    The trend in our society seems to be that those at the top of heap in terms of wealth and attractiveness gain a near-monopoly in the sexual marketplace while those at the bottom of the heap get pushed out of that marketplace altogether.

    Also, surveys on sexual behaviour are notoriously unreliable. Even worse, people will lie in multiple ways - some will wildly exaggerate the amount of sex they have, some will just as wildly underestimate it. Most such surveys either have very very low response rates or they're essentially self-selected and therefore worthless. I suspect that back in the 70s Boomers were outrageously exaggerating the amount of sex they were getting while I suspect that Milllennials may be understating the matter (part of Millennial Self Pity Syndrome - we don't get any sex and it's all the fault of the Boomers).
    , @216
    This claim interacts with the AF/BB claim of 80/20.

    The "top 20%" of men have a glide path via Tinder & Friends to more sex.

    But at the same time, the data did show a smaller uptick in female sexlessness.

    Just a few examples. Russian Orthodox Church preached that Asians were punished by god with slanted eyes for their lack of Christian beliefs. It engaged in rabid antisemitic propaganda full of invented horrors. It vilified Catholics, as well, as servants of the devil.

    These are lamentable teachings.

    Was blessed to grow up in America. After decades in the Church, never heard such things. Have known plenty of Jewish and Catholic converts; they mentioned no such offenses. As far as I know, Orthodoxy holds high regard for Buddhism and the Asian people (Buddhism played a key role in bringing me to the faith years ago). Have always found Orthodox to be reasonable, with consideration for many points of view.

    "The fact that the process happens isn’t legitimately debatable."


    So the response to there's no actual evidence of evolution is: it's nor debatable because it happens. That was one of Dr. Darwin's responses, essentially prove it doesn't happen. Yet, this form of argument is flawed. Because it asks to prove something that is not a fact doesn't exist. It's the ol' prive a negative.

    What you have with evolution is theory in which something considered plausible hasn't been demonstrated (species shift/jump) is used to fill in the blank spaces. A useful imaginative possibility -- but not a fact.

    The theory that accumulations of random mutations produces more highly organized cells, tissues, organs, etc., as well as producing, from species, the greater diversity of genuses, families, orders, and so on, was until recently untestable, and taken on faith by neo-Darwinism. Now it can and has been tested at the molecular level and has been found wanting–random mutations cannot produce the mind-bogglingly complex molecular machinery of the cell–in other words, the aforementioned theory has been refuted, or falsified, if you will. What random mutations can do is fit a species more tightly into its immediate environs at the expense of general adaptability as they take a wrecking ball to the genome. Don’t take my word for it, read biochemist Michael Behe’s latest work “Darwin Devolves.” His previous book, “The Edge of Evolution,” is also excellent. His 1996 book, “Darwin’s Black Box,” which I haven’t read, apparently sent the Darwinists ahowling, and I suppose they are in full frothing-at-the-mouth mode now–because once the aforementioned theory is refuted, what remains, by process of elimination, is an intelligence at work.

  • @nebulafox
    For the overwhelming majority of Russian history, Orthodox Christianity played a deeply important role within the state. Unlike in Western Europe, where the earthly and spiritual centers of power were always competing and jockeying for position-no matter how theoretically sometimes-against each other, in Russia they were united, Byzantine style. This meant that the position of religious minorities within Russia was always bound to be complicated.

    Religious minorities that had been incorporated into the empire earlier-most prominently the Muslims to the south and the ethnic Germans which would provide a lot of the startup ground for Peter's modernization drive-had, by the late 1700s, gotten on board with the Tsarist project for the most part. That meant they were given a certain degree of protection within the system, which they'd be able to protect until the Russification policies of the 1880s. But the Catholic Poles and the Jews that had settled with the Commonwealth were latecomers, and were probably more distrusted by the Russians as a result. In the case of the Poles, this had a lot to do with a couple of centuries of nasty history: at one low point, the Poles occupied Moscow and planned on converting everybody to Catholicism. The resulting heavy-handed policies in occupied Poland would eventually erupt into several nationalist uprisings that would lead to a lot of slaughter, a lot of exile to Siberia, and intense Russification policies.

    As for the Jews, combine all this with Russia's lack of liberalization relative to Europe. That meant all the undiluted discrimination toward Jews you'd see throughout Europe in previous eras but which was dying out by the 1700s remained in full force in Russia, just as serfdom remained a thing until Alexander II. Peter the Great's reforms transformed the aristocracy and the state bureaucracy, but not the masses or the society as a whole. As the 1800s went on and radical left-wing movements began to sprout up and engage in terrorism-and predictably, there were a lot of Jews in these movements, partly because of how the Tsars treated them-state distrust intensified to enough paranoia that the Protocols got published toward the end. I guess, in a sense, the Jews didn't really fit in, which was a problem everywhere but in Russia moreso. The Russians could "get" the Poles and why they were hostile, even if they didn't like it. The Russians were used to the Muslims and the Asians and the Germans. The Jews were always something more alien and tricky and unresolved, maybe?

    Agree with what you say. The point is, for whatever reason, the Russians never wanted Jews to begin with but found themselves in possession of a large Jewish population. This was not unlike the situation that the Germans found themselves in during WWII (the same Jews even). The Russia solution was not as extreme as the German one but somewhat similar to the German policy in 1933-1938 – make life rough on the Jews and maybe they’ll leave. This wasn’t hard for the Russians to do considering that they didn’t like the Jews in the first place. Conversion was also acceptable to the Russians, as it was not to the Germans, indicating they considered this to be a religious rather than racial problem.

    My guess is that carving up their big rival in the Slavic world-the same people who'd been stepping on their throats a century and a half earlier-proved to be too tempting. Gaining a major unassimilated Jewish populace was more "unfortunate side effect" than anything premeditated.

    >Conversion was also acceptable to the Russians, as it was not to the Germans, indicating they considered this to be a religious rather than racial problem.

    Hitler was always very disdainful of religiously motivated anti-Semitism, even if he was OK with exploiting it politically.

    Ethno-nationalism has always been a deeply tricky thing in Russia because of the multi-cultural nature of the place. Even leaders who are unapologetic right-wing nationalists tend to stay away from the hard-line biological stuff: the modern Russian version of the alt-right are not fans of Putin, who regularly locks them up. This means that the exact type of anti-Semitism that the Nazis epitomized was unlikely to take off, if not radical anti-Semitism in general. (That this is not the same as American or even Hapsburg notions of tolerance should go unexplained.)

    Prior to the Nazis, though, you saw way more intermarriage and conversion in Germany (and in the lands that made up Austria-Hungary) than in Russia, including Congress Poland. The sort of biological, volkisch racism that the Nazis espoused only really got traction later on, in the late 1800s: and significantly and unsurprisingly, it took off in popularity in Vienna long before it did in Germany proper, and it took multiple decades to get anywhere politically: as late as 1930, Hitler did not emphasize anti-Semitism during the Great Depression era, because it wasn't getting anywhere with mainstream voters. On an causation level, though, the notion of Jews as akin to a pathogen was a deeply modern reaction. It was a response to modernity, since the Jews were themselves seen as agents of modernity in a place like Germany which was undergoing Chinese levels of social change at the time.

    I got the impression that intermarriage in Russia only took off on a mass level after WWII, well after state atheism was introduced. Part of that was because the traditional Pale had been destroyed by the Germans, but the Soviet government also was emphatic about it after the war, in keeping with the tendencies that Stalin displayed about Russian nationalism well before. It worked: after centuries of being a parallel society, Jews assimilated to the degree that Israel has more Russian speakers than anyone outside the former USSR.

    (Consider this irony, though: Germany had the world's most powerful Marxist party and political tradition in the early 1900s. Meanwhile, sharply industrializing Tsarist Russia had tons of far-right groups who wanted to get rid of the aristocracy and establish a mystical bond between Tsar and Narod-the Union of the Russian People and their Black Hundreds being one example: and tellingly, these views started to pick up when Russia was undergoing the same kind of breakneck transformation that Germany had earlier, during the dying days of the Romanovs. They had views on the Jews that were very Nazi-esque and not quite as based in religious tradition, even if lacking in the same biological, pseudo-scientific sheen the Nazis put on it. So, if an observer had to guess in 1912, they'd have bet that Russia would go fascist and Germany Communist if there was social apocalypse, not the other way around.)

    The WW2 official narrative is more challenged than it ever was, and the stupid Allies have only themselves to blame for it. The EU recently pushing to demonise the role played by the USSR in WW2 has had unwanted effects.

    As a consequence, the Russians have been pulling lots of unpleasant skeletons from their archives. For instance, the information that, as late as 1938, the Poles intended to erect a statue to celebrate Hitler is particularly enlightening and sheds a different perspective on Poland's posture as "innocent victim" of WW2.

    Anyway, what matters most is the future: the relationship between Russia and Germany has clearly become strong, collaborative and full of promises. Their bright shared future is the best revenge against the unfairness inflicted upon these two great nations in the past.

  • @Brooklyn Dave
    What Bechor said I see as true on a much lesser scale. I see no large number of US Jews making Israel their permanent home. They prefer to visit or even have vacation homes there, but to live - I don't think so. Did he ever ask why are there so many Israelis living in the US? Yes, a larger and larger percent of the Jewish population in Israel is becoming Orthodox or ultra-Orthodox due to higher birthrates, thus gaining political power. But many of these ultra-Orthodox have only a religious education and a minimum in secular studies. They do not have the education nor the sophistication to run a country. American and British Jews are too psychologically wedded to a leftist worldview. Yes, some have veered to the right, but it is a move that I see as a large extent as insincere. A perfect example are the Neo-Cons in the US. These former Trotskyites (mainly Jewish) saw in the American right an unwavering support of Zionism (esp. from many Evangelicals). This move is largely contingent on US support - and that is changing (at least among the average people). Even Henry Kissinger made a comment that Israel's days are numbered. No Western support - no Israel. I haven't even mentioned the Muslims. When or if the West takes a truly balanced position on affairs in the Middle East, the Muslim Arab population will just take over by sheer numbers. The question of how violently that happens is up for grabs.

    When or if the West takes a truly balanced position on affairs in the Middle East, the Muslim Arab population will just take over by sheer numbers. The question of how violently that happens is up for grabs.

    Your first and last mistake is to try and look at things logically and rationally in the ME and the world at large. There is no logic or rational thoughts among Arab muslims. They are very irrational and emotional, and never make rational decisions. That is why all those countries are so dysfunctional. There primary emotion is revenge.

    The only good news for the Jews and Israel is that they apply the same heat to their own sectarian violence as they do to the Jews.

    Look at the gassing of the Iran vs. Iraq war. Look at Yemen. They hate each other as much as they hate the Jews.

    If logic were to rule they would have made peace with the Jews had a Palestine state. They could have grown wildly prosperous with exports, trade and tourism. The Jews would have helped them get going.

    But the Jihadist won’t let them. They would rather die then make money. Killing is their day job. It is a career of choice, their stock market, the more successful Jihadist live very well until assassinated.

    I always say that if the Jews had Gaza and the Palestinians had Israel, Gaza would look like Israel and Israel would look dysfunctional and disgusting like Gaza is today.

    The Jews are not responsible for Arabia’s problems. The struggle against the Arabs is a religious one. It has nothing to do with land. Islam will not allow Jewish hegemony over Jewish holy sites. They will not recognize Judaism an equal religion. Islam came about to replace Judaism as the more perfect religion, after the Jews were cast aside by Allah. To Muslims Judaism is a threat to their religion much like Jews were to Christianity in the middle ages. We resolved issues with the Christians an they are now our brothers. The same transformation must occur in Islam if they are to move forward.

    Until they let go of their religious problems and allow those with different faiths equality they will continue to live like they do. They are stuck in a time warp.

    I would not worry too much about Israel, they have weapons and ideas for combat that no one knows about. They are in the fight of their lives but I would not count them out, with or without the US. Never again means never again.

  • @Jack D
    Jews in Poland were victims of their own success. Money lending, tavern keeping, etc. are all great occupations but you only need so many of them. But rich Jewish guys kept having more and more kids (BTW, have you noticed that even today, when the average woman has 1.5 children, rich guys still tend to have a large # of kids although not necessarily with the same wife). Maybe when Jews were 2 or 3% of the population they could all fill these slots, but when they became 10% of the population it was impossible - you don't need 1 banker for every 10 people.

    So, when you get to modern times (from the 18th century onward) , most Jews in E. Europe are neither money lenders nor tavern keepers (nor are most of them Bolsheviks). Mostly they are just poor shmucks like Tevye trying to scratch out a living from shoemaking or tailoring or some minor trade. Or fishermen like my grandfather. Whatever prosperity had ever existed in the family tree was a lost in the mists of history. Maybe my great-great-great, etc. grandfather was a money lender in France in 1090 but there was no historical memory of this at all. All they knew was poor.

    But somehow, in the mind of anti-Semites, ALL Jews were either bankers or Bolsheviks and guys like my grandfather had to take the rap for this even though he never saw (couldn't read) a promissory note in his life and didn't know Karl from Groucho.

    “So, when you get to modern times (from the 18th century onward) , most Jews in E. Europe are neither money lenders nor tavern keepers (nor are most of them Bolsheviks). Mostly they are just poor shmucks like Tevye trying to scratch out a living from shoemaking or tailoring or some minor trade.”

    I’m not denying that — see my above comment about the poor Jews that resulted when Jewish boys had outpaced the moneylending positions. My comments were specifically about medieval times. Despite those like Jane Plain whose frothing at the mouth apparently laves flecks on her iPad that obscure whatever doesn’t conform to her prejudices (not that that stops her from replying) I’m not denying that eventually the available cushy jobs got relatively scarcer and scarcer as the population kept growing, which is presumably why so many Jews congregated to liquor and other such industries. What part of my comments — except your own knee jerk confirmation bias — would lead you to think otherwise?

    But do note that even in those latter earas, they were better off than the vast majority of peasants (i.e. the vast majority of gentiles) in that they…well, weren’t peasants. I.e. they weren’t property of the manor. They also had far more wherewithal to become literate given that peasants by and large didn’t.

    “But the poorest Jew was a bit wealthier than the peasants in the neighboring village. The peasant was a vassal while the Jew moved freely. The peasant was illiterate while the Jew had some knowledge.

    Why is that so hard for you to accept? You may think it’s no biggie, and you may think those earlier centuries when Jews were essentially lesser nobility has no bearing today, but if so, pull my other leg. As Gregory Clark’s work has indicated, having been high and mighty four centuries or more ago can still matter to this day, especially in relation to some great-great…-great grandson of peasants who was never high and mighty to begin with, and who is increasingly being asked to pay a price for what whites (i.e. rich people, both Jew and gentile) did to “oppressed people” (i.e. those who like his ancestors were merely property), with the eager encouragement of those same whites (again, both Jew and gentile) who were far more likely to have been responsible for all that, but will almost certainly never need to pay up.

    Just take one family. Anne Frank
     
    Indeed. There is zero actual evidence that Anne Frank died at Belsen. And, the Jews just recently changed their story .... https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2015/03/31/anne-frank-death-probably-february-1945/70742898/

    For 70 years, Anne Frank was believed to have died of typhus in Bergen-Belsen just two weeks before allied forces liberated the Nazi death camp on April 15, 1945.

    On Tuesday, however, new research released by the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam concludes
     
    This is one of those photos you hate, taken by the British as the approached Belsen at the end of the war
    https://i.imgur.com/FEgmdtq.jpg
    This photo shows Anne Frank and the girl in the photo side by side
    https://i.imgur.com/luk5fc3.jpg
    The kids in the Belsen picture are Jewish children from Amsterdam who were cared for at Belsen by the older woman in the photo, Luba Try……. They were taken to Amsterdam after the war as a group and met the Queen. The group has maintained contact and had reunions. To my knowledge none in the group has said a word about Anne Frank. I emailed the Anne Frank center in Amsterdam and asked them about the picture, and they said they had no knowledge of it, and were unable to identify the girl who resembles Anne Frank.

    The Jewish children at Belsen were known as the 'diamond children', another Jewish child at the camp, not from Amsterdam, went on to become a professor at Berkeley, he wrote about them in 'Menories of a Coal Child', http://faculty.ce.berkeley.edu/coby/essays/coalchild.htm

    I think the photo is direct evidence that she did not die at Belsen, but I don’t think it is conclusive, as it could be someone else. Do you think the photo is of Anne Frank or not?

    So, given the failure of the Anne Frank center to address the photo and identify the girl, I think it is likely that she is Anne Frank. If not it would be easy for the Anne Frank center or the Luba Trz… group to prove.

    Why don’t you call her up and ask her if she is Anne Frank?
    And while you have her ask her why she feigned her death?
    For what purpose. You could tell from her diary she was destined to be quite a notable writer.
    Too bad she eliminated herself.

    Why did Jews and Nazis hate each other so much? Because they were opposites? Or because they were so much like each other. Both were predicated on supremacist racial ideology.

    It's like Ali vs Frazier. Why was there so much bad blood? Because they were opposites? No, it was because both were boxers who wanted to be champion, and there could be only one champion. Ali didn't hate old ladies in the streets. Frazier didn't hate little kids playing in the park. They hated each other because they were both supremacist in wanting to be #1 in the ring, the sole king of the hill.

    Nazis didn't want to conquer the entire world, but they wanted to be #1 power in the world. They wanted to dominate Europe and be a superpower. Nazis hated Jews especially because Jews, even more than Nazis, wanted to control the world. Jews were uber-rivals. Nazis also hated Jews because Jewish power took hold of non-Jewish nations, often parasitically. Jews, in turn, hated the Nazis not only because the Nazis stood in the way of Jewish takeover of the world but because Nazis also vied for dominance in world affairs.
    Jews didn't exactly like the Anglos, but the better-mannered Anglos were willing to work with Jews as partners in empire building. (In time, however, Jews waited for the moment to ensnare Anglos with 'white guilt' and turn them into cucky attack dogs of Zion.) But Nazis wanted dominance without the Jews, and if anything, believed their dominance could only come by the way of crushing Jewish Power. Nazis, for all their evil, were right to believe that it's impossible to form stable partnerships with Jews. Lacking a culture of honor, Jews will eventually turn on you.

    If Jews were just a quiet and harmless people, Nazis wouldn't have hated them. But Jews were a great people with powerful will and supremacist arrogance. Nazis rose to power by warning Germans of the alien Jewish plan to take over German society. But then, Nazis weren't interested only in suppressing the evil of Jewish Power Gone Wild -- like Putin in Russia and Orban in Hungary -- but in harnessing that power so that they, the 'Aryans', could become masters of the world.

    But one difference between Nazis and Jews is that the former were far more honest in their attitudes and agenda. They projected their power as supremacist. In contrast, even as Jews act supremacist in world affairs, they always claim to be acting in the name of 'liberal democracy' and 'freedom'. Right, just ask the Palestinians. And it must in the name of liberty and justice that Jews do everything to make their puppets in both political parties to suppress BDS.
    We are told US is Judeo-Christian, but it's really Judeo-Stalinist, what with Jews in mass media, big finance, and high-tech all coordinating to hog all the power and shut others down.

    As crazy as the Nazis were and despite WWII being maybe the greatest catastrophe in mankind, it's possible that one of the most positive developments of Nazism and WWII was that the Jewish population was reduced a great deal by either violence, expulsion, and voluntary exile. After WWII, not only did most European nations become more homogeneous but they were relatively Jew-free compared to earlier times. This meant greater unity between the leaders and the led. With less Jewish influence, societies became more cohesive. Consider the success of W. Germany after WWII. On the one hand, it was due to democracy and destruction of evil Nazism. But it may also have been due to Germany becoming almost totally Jew-free. Germany for Germans.
    But since the end of the Cold War and rise of US as the lone superpower(dominated by Jews), it seems Jewish people and power have been entering German society once again, and well, just look at the result?

    “Nazis hated Jews especially because Jews, even more than Nazis, wanted to control the world. “

    Here are some–but certainly not all–“antisemitic” facts, “canards” and reasons why they did:

    “East European Jews also began to flood into Germany at this time as the result of the turmoil in that region caused by the war [WWI], the Russian Revolution that followed, and the Russian Civil War following that. Large numbers of people wanted to move out of those dangerous areas and cross over into Germany through East Prussia which bordered Russia.

    The head of German immigration and naturalization in the early period of the Weimar Republic happened to be Jewish (Herr Badt), who gave preference to Jews wanting to immigrate into Germany. At that same time, other European countries were still maintaining strict limits on Jewish immigration. These newcomers poring over the East Prussian border spread out and joined other Jewish communities which tended to locate in Germany’s larger cities.

    With the Kaiser now gone, and all bars against them lifted, Jews flooded into all government offices of the Weimar Republic. They also systematically invaded the professions and German institutions.

    Jews stick together as a race and always pull and shove each other up the ranks of institutions and organizations, and pull strings to ensure that members of their race are given first priority at student openings in major universities, and so forth. While Western Christians generally apply the test of “ability” in hiring and promotions, with considerations for ethnicity or religion being secondary, or of no consideration whatever, Jews choose their associates and subordinates primarily based on their being “Jewish,” and if they happen to have “ability” at the same time, well, that’s OK too.

    In Jewish controlled organizations in the Weimar Republic, the Gentile did not have a chance in competition for jobs or promotions. Jews always chose other Jews. This intense in-group cooperation and mutual assistance among Jews facilitated their rapid infiltration of every institution in Germany. (1)

    The pattern has always been the same; once a Jew obtains a position, he brings other Jews in, and in the process, gradually pushes the non-Jews out. It was not long until Jews dominated Weimar Germany. (That same process is occurring in the United States today.)”

    and

    The Jews in Weimar Germany used their dominance in theater, film and newspapers to ridicule traditional German culture and German ideals. Christianity was also targeted for ridicule. (That process is now occurring in the United States.) This was a period when Berlin gained an international reputation for decadence, debauchery and pornography, as depicted in the Broadway musical and later movie, Cabaret, for example.

    Germany during the Weimar Republic underwent a virtually unparalleled period of social and cultural upheaval, to a great extent, a result of the disillusionment over losing the war and the unjust peace treaty which followed. Germans began to question the meaning of life. In Weimar’s early years, Germany was a society which had been cut loose from its traditional cultural moorings and set adrift.

    The old norms and the old rules of social behavior didn’t seem to apply anymore. The war also produced a similar result in England and American, though to a much lesser extent, causing a sort of social malaise, as manifested in the so-called “lost generation.” The Jews used this climate of cultural uncertainty and loss of confidence among the German people to undermine and destroy what remained of the traditional German culture.

    Jews in Poland were victims of their own success. Money lending, tavern keeping, etc. are all great occupations but you only need so many of them. But rich Jewish guys kept having more and more kids (BTW, have you noticed that even today, when the average woman has 1.5 children, rich guys still tend to have a large # of kids although not necessarily with the same wife). Maybe when Jews were 2 or 3% of the population they could all fill these slots, but when they became 10% of the population it was impossible - you don't need 1 banker for every 10 people.

    So, when you get to modern times (from the 18th century onward) , most Jews in E. Europe are neither money lenders nor tavern keepers (nor are most of them Bolsheviks). Mostly they are just poor shmucks like Tevye trying to scratch out a living from shoemaking or tailoring or some minor trade. Or fishermen like my grandfather. Whatever prosperity had ever existed in the family tree was a lost in the mists of history. Maybe my great-great-great, etc. grandfather was a money lender in France in 1090 but there was no historical memory of this at all. All they knew was poor.

    But somehow, in the mind of anti-Semites, ALL Jews were either bankers or Bolsheviks and guys like my grandfather had to take the rap for this even though he never saw (couldn't read) a promissory note in his life and didn't know Karl from Groucho.

    Jews in Poland were victims of their own success.

    Not the only place or time. The 17th and 18th century French nobility was in a way also a victim of its own success. Similar things happened in China.

    Overproduction of elites is a major theme in Peter Turchin’s thesis of history. His book is worth reading, although the equations don’t show up very well on an e-book reader like Kindle.

    There is also the benefit of spreading ideas and sharing experiences between all shades of “nationalism”, even turning it “international”. If we influence others that Nationalism is different from, say, Nationalsozialism, and it embraces respect for other countries sovereignty, we could encourage others to oppose the globalization project, perhaps the greatest danger humanity is facing now.

    There are hints that “organized Leftists” (as opposed to individual diehard Leftists who have always opposed the Trotsy international tendency and the modernist heresies) are coming round to accept Nationalism. Perhaps the opportunistic leaders are sensing the winds of change and are just manoeuvering for position; but even so, I see positive outcomes in that new trend.

    So that is a description of you are you a Bolshevik?

    lol! Really, Fran. You’re actually trying to compare me to these fine gentlemen?

    Meet Lazar Kaganovich. [Kaganovich, was one of the worst mass murderers in history.]

    He is known for helping Stalin seize power, for his role in organizing, planning and supervising the famine in Soviet Ukraine, and for his harsh treatment and execution of those deemed threats to Stalin’s regime.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lazar_Kaganovich

    The resulting state-organized forced famine, was a planned genocide and killed 7,000,000 Ukrainians between 1932 and 1933, and inflicted enormous suffering on the Soviet Central Asian republic of Kazakhstan.

    https://rense.com/general11/stal.htm

    Meet Genrikh Yagoda. [He was the greatest Jewish murderer of the 20th Century.]

    He was responsible for the deaths of up to 10 million people and the deportation of 5 million Russian and Ukrainian peasants.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genrikh_Yagoda

    If you’d like to get a close up and personal look at their handiwork, just read these excerpts from Red Terror:

    At these times, there were numerous reports that Cheka interrogators used torture published in the media of the Soviet government’s opponents, including Denikn’s Commission to Investigate Bolshevik Crimes. The commission claimed that, at Odessa the Cheka tied White officers to planks and slowly fed them into furnaces or tanks of boiling water; the commission claimed that in Kharkiv, scalpings and hand-flayings were commonplace: the skin was peeled off victims’ hands to produce “gloves”; the commission claimed that the Voronezh Cheka rolled naked people around in barrels studded internally with nails; victims were crucified or stoned to death at Dnipropetrovsk…

    Executions took place in prison cellars or courtyards, or occasionally on the outskirts of town, during the Red Terror and Russian Civil War. After the condemned were stripped of their clothing and other belongings, which were shared among the Cheka executioners, they were either machine-gunned in batches or dispatched individually with a revolver. Those killed in prison were usually shot in the back of the neck as they entered the execution cellar, which became littered with corpses and soaked with blood. Victims killed outside the town were moved by truck, bound and gagged, to their place of execution, where they sometimes were made to dig their own graves…

    Alexander Yakovlev, claimed that priests, monks and nuns were crucified, thrown into cauldrons of boiling tar, scalped, strangled, given Communion with melted lead and drowned in holes in the ice…

    According to Richard Pipes, terror was inevitably justified by Lenin’s belief that human lives were expendable in the cause of building the new order of communism. Pipes has quoted Marx’s observation of the class struggles in 19th century France: “The present generation resembles the Jews whom Moses led through the wilderness. It must not only conquer a new world, it must also perish in order to make room for the people who are fit for a new world”

    Kaganovich was scum. But this does not make a fairy tale of 7 million Ukrainians starved o death any truer. In fact, the population of Ukraine kept steadily rising up until 1991, and then dropped precipitously.

    Yagoda was scum. But he couldn’t have possibly killed 10 million people, as during the whole period of Stalin’s rule (1922-1953) fewer than 500,000 were executed, some of them ordinary criminals (murderers, rapists, robbers, etc.).

    Red Terror is one of many lies offered by Wiki. Actually, if you position yourself as an anti-Zionist, it is surprising that you trust Zionized Wiki and its lies.

    I heartily reject that paradigm. If I'm certain of anything, it's that the difference between the other animals on this planet and humans, is one of degree, and not one of kind.

    And that if there is a judgment to be made upon us, the way in which we treat our fellow creatures, completely vulnerable to us, is the degree to which we are a moral people.

    I'm no vegan, and I do occasionally eat meat, but I don't engage in the ludicrous vanity that they were put here for that purpose.

    Perhaps once we evolve as a species, to understand that animals deserve dignity and compassion, then perhaps we'll be more able to understand that our fellow humans might also deserve a modicum of dignity and compassion.

    At family Christmas party I could not stop watching my nephew (who has had a dog almost all his life) interact with his almost-3-year old son. The child is lively and curious, and loaded with sugar after Christmas cookies, birthday cake & ice cream. He climbed on the back of a banquette. Nephew calmly, slowly, without even a scowl on his face or saying a word he lifted the child as if he were fine china, set him on his feet on the floor, then he gently cupped the boy's head with his finger tips.
    I watched nephew repeat that movement several times: when the child was out of bounds, nephew calmly approached, put his fingers on the boy's head and directed him back into bounds.

    I could only think of the Horse Whisperer. No harsh words -- quite the contrary, in fact, he said very little. No anger, no hurry, no form of scolding.
    I imagined that movement with the fingers on the head was a way of signaling the child's brain -- shaping the cognitive map: "These are the boundaries; you can trust me to teach you to recognize them; eventually you will conduct your own behavior according to your own internal boundaries."

    Gosh I wish I had known enough to raise our kids that way.


    Sorry for the digression.
    Or not: raising our kids well is the most important thing we can do, and the best antidote to all our grievances.

    So you are welcome to provide the evidence of any existence of live beings in which some transitional species via the evolutionary process is available. What you are confusing is is what is meant a consesus about what constitutes truth. In this minus the evidence of evolution a large number of scientists, accept evolution as truth. That is not the same thing as scientific fact. And that is evolution is a theory, there is no predictable scenarios about a new species developed from an existing one now.

    What exists are blank spaces — and those spaces are filled with conjecture. In this case the conjecture is that biodiversity is the result of evolution. There are a lot of problems the notion not the least of which is a lack of evidence for a transitional animal anywhere that indicates a transitionary development.

    I place a lot of weight on the endgame of a scientific fact — it’s process that upon a set formula — one can predict the end or the next step.

    You are preaching to the choir. I am not a racist in any way. If I were, I’d hurt my lab badly. My best graduate student was a white American girl, my second-best was a Chinese girl. My best post-doc was a Chinese guy, my semi-lab manager is a Ukrainian guy. My best tech was a black girl from Cameroon. I had pretty decent post-docs from Korea and Israel. I had people from various countries on five different continents in my lab, as I judge people exclusively on their personal merits.
    What’s more, I believe that all the worst problems in the world are caused by money bags, Jewish and non-Jewish alike, and their insatiable greed. In my book Soros and Adelson are just as much scum as Koch brothers or Sam Walton.

    If black men are so averse to work, how is it that most of Sevier County, TN was built by African American builders?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lewis_Buckner

    I see three problems with your thesis:

    1. According to the Wikipedia article you cite, Lewis Buckner was at least half white, and likely more white than that. The article says his father was white. His mother was likely half or three quarters white. The plantation owners had a penchant for breeding their female black slaves to large white men to produce larger slaves, the idea being that larger, stronger hybrid slaves could do more work than the smallish slaves brought from West Africa. One observes whites more often than blacks using save wages to start businesses. No bigotry involved; just simple observation.

    2. The Wikipedia article said that Lewis Buckner build 15 houses. That’s a long way from building all of Sevier County, Tennessee. According to Wikipedia, Sevier County had 11,028 population in 1870 and 22,021 in 1900. With an increase in population of 11,000 people and assuming an average family size of 10, 1100 new houses would have been needed. While Mr Buckner can be justifiably lauded for erecting well built houses that still look good, 15 Buckner houses is a small fraction of 1100 Sevier County new houses.

    3. The Wikipedia article only mentions one other prominent construction contractor with at least some African ancestry, an unnamed brickmason who worked on at least one house with Lewis Buckner. The article alludes to several other noteworthy construction contractors with African ancestry, but does not provide any details as to the extent of their work.

    This isn’t what Cofnas was saying, rather he was falsely claiming there are some academics who argue against/prevent conducting research on IQ group differences (...) No academic though holds this position...
     
    I'm not sure whether you would consider John Horgan of Scientific American an "academic," but he indeed does hold this position, possesses editorial responsibility at a widely respected scientific publication, and apparently speaks for many people in the scientific field when he writes -

    "...another part of me wonders whether research on race and intelligence—given the persistence of racism in the U.S. and elsewhere--should simply be banned. I don't say this lightly. For the most part, I am a hard-core defender of freedom of speech and science. But research on race and intelligence—no matter what its conclusions are—seems to me to have no redeeming value."

    Scientific American isn’t what it used to be when Martin Gardner was writing the mathy column and they covered interesting science in a way designed so laymen could have some understanding. Now it’s using that reputation to push an agenda.

    • Replies: @Crawfurdmuir
    I agree with you about Scientific American, but my sentiments are not going to affect the esteem in which the magazine is held among the intelligentsia (by which I mean not just or even mainly scientists, but rather the people that shape public opinion and govern the funding of academic institutions).

    Oliver Smith first stated (comment 71) that he was "unaware of any academic who opposes or wants to stop IQ research on group differences (sex, class, biogeographical ancestry/ethnic groups etc)."

    When Horgan's name was mentioned he dismissed him as "an SJW journalist and... total crackpot." When I brought up Horgan's position at Stevens Institute of Technology, Smith (comment 112) replied that Horgan "has no scientific qualifications and hasn’t published peer-reviewed research so is totally irrelevant," going on to argue "Why can’t Cofnas list a single PhD academic who argues to ban research on group differences in IQ? This extreme and irrational position is unheard of in science."

    So now, instead of a mere "academic" Smith wants a "PhD academic" who has scientific qualifications and has published peer-reviewed research. There's more than a little moving of goalposts here. And, alas, it's not the opinion of people who satisfy all these parameters that ultimately will result in an effective academic ban on research into race and IQ. Rather, it's more likely to be people like Horgan, who (whether or not they deserve to be) are taken seriously in the rarefied circles frequented by "leading science communicators, including geographer Jared Diamond of UCLA, financier/philosopher Nassim Taleb, psychologist Steven Pinker of Harvard, neurologist Oliver Sacks, philosopher Peter Singer of Princeton, economist Jeffrey Sachs of Columbia, and biologist Edward O. Wilson of Harvard.”

    James D. Watson, because of his candid remarks on race and IQ, was deposed from his position at Cold Springs Harbor Laboratory in 2007, and stripped of his remaining titles and honors at that institution in 2019. Charles Murray has suffered 'disinvitation' from speaking engagements, and in 2017 was driven by hecklers from the hall where he was supposed to have lectured at Middlebury College in 2017.

    Does it really matter that the people who brought about these punitive episodes might not have been PhD academics with scientific qualifications who had published peer-reviewed research? They are effectively enforcing a ban on discussions of race and IQ, and nothing has been done to stop them from so doing. Indeed, the perpetrators enjoy the approbation of the great and the good, such as New York Times editorial writers. Any researcher who values his livelihood and reputation undoubtedly recognizes the damage that is likely to result to them as a consequence of being identified as a purveyor of "scientific racism," and directs his attention to subjects the are less likely to leave him without employment or the prospect of it.

    SciAm jumped the shark when they treated Forrest Mims as a nonperson because of his religious beliefs. He's wrong, but so is everyone else at SciAm on other issues (such as HBD and race realism) and his beliefs had no bearing on the position he had been otherwise selected for.


    About the Scientific American Affair
    "The Amateur Scientist" was a popular column about do-it-yourself science projects in Scientific American magazine. In May 1988 I sent a lengthy proposal to Jonathan Piel, then editor of Scientific American, to propose writing "The Amateur Scientist." The proposal included topics for some three years of columns. It was reviewed at some length, and in July 1989 Piel called and asked if I would like to write the column. When I said yes, he asked me to visit New York to discuss the details. I stopped all work and a delayed a field trip to fly to New York to meet Piel and his staff on August 7, 1989.

    During a friendly meeting in his office, Piel expressed excitement over various scientific and electronic devices that I showed him. He repeatedly stated, "We should have hired you years ago!" He called in the editorial staff and asked me to show them the instruments and devices that I had brought.

    Later, Piel frowned when I told him I had once written an article for a Christian magazine about how to organize long-distance bicycle trips for teenagers. (I am a practicing Christian). He then asked if I believed in Darwinian evolution. I replied that I did not, and he was displeased. Later staff editors Laurie Burnham and John Horgan quizzed me in telephone conversations about my beliefs concerning "the sanctity of life" and whether or not I read the Bible. Senior editors Armand Schwab and Timothy Appenzeller supported my proposal for writing the column and provided helpful advice on how to proceed.

    Scientific American eventually published three of my columns, and many readers sent the magazine and me letters about them. Unfortunately, the editor refused to publish more of my columns, because he was concerned that my personal beliefs would cause the magazine to experience what he described as "a public relations nightmare" (Jonathan Piel and Forrest M. Mims III, Science's Litmus Test, Harper's, March 1992, pp. 28-32.)

    His dream came true when I told a newspaper reporter how I lost the column. After the reporter's story was prominently featured in a Houston newspaper, reporters called from The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal. A reporter for The New York Times arrived at my office for an interview. After articles appeared in these newspapers, dozens of magazines and newspapers called. So did many radio and TV stations, including the Voice of America. The media was surprisingly supportive of my plight. For around six weeks it was virtually impossible to work due to the many media interviews.

    More about what transpired is given below, and I will eventually relate the experience in detail in a new memoir. Meanwhile, many inaccurate accounts about the affair have been published on the web by skeptics and atheists, hence this presentation of verifiable facts about what occurred.
    Following this unfortunate experience, I told my wife Minnie that I would take off a year to do science to prove that a person who believes in a Creator, as did most scientists of old, can still do science today. That year stretched into a career doing science and publishing my findings in leading journals, none of which asked about my personal beliefs.

    Note to Writers and Editors: Please notify me at forrest[dot]mims[at]ieee[dot]org if you have questions or would like to see specific correspondence. There is also a detailed contemporaneous memo for the record, which was begun when it became obvious that the editor and some staff of Scientific American were concerned about my beliefs related to evolution, abortion and the Bible.

    “Mr. Mims on Friday [October 19, 1990] played for a reporter a tape he made of a conversation late last year [October 4, 1989] with Scientific American editor Jonathan Piel. “What you’ve written is first rate,” Mr. Piel said. “It’s the public relations nightmare that’s keeping me awake.” ....

    In an interview, Mr. Piel said that “Scientific American has never discriminated against anyone for religious reasons,” but he wouldn’t comment further on the controversy. On the tape recording, however, he told Mr. Mims several times that he worried how creationists somehow might exploit Mr. Mims in their efforts to push creationist textbooks to schools….

    Laurence Tribe, a Harvard University law professor, agreed that the magazine appeared to have discriminated against Mr. Mims. The magazine’s rationale was “distressing,” he said. “A company could say we don’t want to be seen identifying with a point of view, so we don’t want to hire Jews.”

  • @res
    Thanks for the reference. I will be sure to use it when talking to those who believe there is no genetic component underlying racial differences in IQ. It will be interesting to see how uncontroversial it remains with Current Year SJWs.

    I actually have a paper copy of that book. Just need to find it. For the time being though there is a PDF on Libgen.

    The 12.5% estimate appears in Appendix G (i.e. not exactly highlighted) on page 291.

    If we calculate the between-group heritability using .04 for r. .75 for hi, and DeFries’s estimate of r = .20 for black-white IQ differences, we obtain an estimate of hi = .125. That is. about one-eight of the variation between groups would be genetic, as opposed to three-fourths of the variation within groups. This estimate assumes that the genes influencing IQ arc average with respect to racial differentiation. However, it might be argued that this assumption is a rather awkward one to have to make, since it is an important part of the question at issue. If the genes influencing IQ have been subject to differential selection in different races they might well differ more than the average gene.
     
    That last sentence is incredibly interesting since it indicates 12.5% is likely to be an underestimate given that IQ has almost certainly been selected for. Last time I saw you were agreeing to a 5-50% range. Still sticking with that despite this evidence?

    This excerpt from page 133 looks like a decent summary of their views:

    Genetic Designs: Conclusions
    In summary, the studies we have reviewed in this chapter provide no unequivocal answer to the question of whether the differences in ability-test performance among U.S. racial-ethnic subpopulations do or do not have a substantial component reflecting genetic differences among the subpopulations. We have reviewed evidence from studies of twins and siblings that for the most part suggests appreciable and similar heritability of IQ within the U.S. black and white subpopulations. but this speaks only indirectly to the issue of differences between populations.
    Only very limited data exist from such potentially informative groups as adopted children and half-siblings. A variety of studies of individuals of mixed racial ancestry are available; most are impaired by limited samples, probable biases, incomplete information, or combinations of these factors. On balance, such studies can probably be assessed as offering fewer explanatory difficulties to environmentalists than to hereditarians, although they admit interpretation from a range of viewpoints.

     
    All in all a surprisingly even handed treatment based on a quick look. I need to dig out my paper copy and take a closer look.

    BTW, here is what Loehlin has to say about Richard Lynn. Do you want to reconsider your opinion of Lynn?
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_Differences_in_Intelligence_(book)

    A review by John C. Loehlin, University of Texas Professor emeritus, argues that the general trends in the data that Lynn presents are probably dependable, but faults Lynn for carelessness in how his conclusions are presented. Loehlin summarizes his view of the book as follows:

    Is this book the final word on race differences in intelligence? Of course not. But Richard Lynn is a major player, and it is good to have his extensive work on this topic together in one place. Future workers who address these matters under this or any other label will find that Lynn has done a lot of spadework for them. And they will also find that there is plenty to ponder over within these pages.[7]
     

     
    I am a bit surprised Loehlin has managed to survive the race/IQ fallout so he seems like a good example for you to have raised. I guess he was sufficiently careful in framing the points he made to avoid attention. Impressive given the following: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_C._Loehlin

    He has also written on the race and intelligence controversy. He was a Director of the American Eugenics Society from 1968 to 1974. In 1994 he was one of 52 signatories on "Mainstream Science on Intelligence",[1] a public statement written by Linda Gottfredson, published in response to popular criticism of the conclusions presented in Richard J. Herrnstein and Charles Murray's controversial book The Bell Curve (1994). Among his PhD students are Eric Turkheimer.

    In 1995, he took part in the American Psychological Association task force writing a consensus statement on the state of intelligence research in response to the claims being advanced amid the Bell Curve controversy, titled "Intelligence: Knowns and Unknowns."
     
    He turns 94 in two weeks so I don't think I'll be doing anything to try to raise his profile among the SJW mob like I said in my opening.

    P.S. Their acknowledgements are interesting in terms of whom they respect. Note the presence of Jensen, Shockley, and Eysenck. Do you want to reconsider your opinion of those three? You might also want to take a look at the assessment of the reaction to the views those three espoused which is described on pp. 8-11.

    Among those to whom wc are particularly grateful for helpful suggestions are Joan and Stephen S. Baratz, Ned Block, Philip K. Bock. Jack Brcsler, Jan Bruell, Luigi Cavalli-Sforza, Raymond B.

    Also interesting to see the way they provided cover in the following paragraph.

    In identifying these various distinguished scientists and scholars, we do not, of course, mean to imply or suggest their endorsement of this book. We sent them a draft—in which all of them found at least some room for improvement. Their suggestions were of help to us in
    putting the draft into its final form. We do want to acknowledge that assistance, plus the encouragement that many of them provided us, but we do not wish to have them saddled with any of our views that they do not share
     
    "saddled with any of our views" is interesting wording. I winder what they were thinking.

    That last sentence is incredibly interesting since it indicates 12.5% is likely to be an underestimate given that IQ has almost certainly been selected for. Last time I saw you were agreeing to a 5-50% range. Still sticking with that despite this evidence?

    I certainly don’t argue for 5-50%. I’m arguing for 1-5%. I’m an environmentalist. I don’t though restrict the environmentalist viewpoint to strictly 0%.

    Here’s my own subjective breakdown of the categories I currently find useful:

    1-5%: environmentalist
    6-49%: ‘moderate hereditarianism’
    50-80%: Jensenism (Jensen’s hereditarianism hypothesis)
    81-100%: ‘extreme hereditarianism’

    It’s fairly arbitrary and in the past I extended environmentalist to around 10%.

    I’d classify Loehlin et al. 1975 as ‘moderate hereditarianism’, but leaning heavily towards environmentalism; in fact there’s a quote in their book where they say something like this and their conclusions touch upon a “environmentalist framework”. Anyway I’m done commenting here in 2019 and don’t plan to comment ever again in 2020 or visit this website again, so I’ll have to cut this response short. I could though have provided a full rebuttal e.g. the fact Loehlin lists Jensenists in acknowledgements isn’t an endorsement; if you look at the names you find the anti-racist activist there like Ashley Montagu.

    Thanks for clarifying. It's nice to nail it down so we can eventually see who is right and who is wrong ; )

    So you don't take Loehlin's 12.5% estimate (which is probably an underestimate if IQ is selected for) seriously?

    Of course you could have. And it would have been just as good as your other "rebuttals."

    If you read more carefully you would have noticed that I said "respect" not "endorse." It is telling that you feel the need to reword what I say before responding to it.

    Here is an interesting excerpt in light of your attempts to pretend no one ever argues for 0% genetic contribution. From pp. 85-86.

    Kamins more radical assertion of zero heritability. if substantiated, might not render the present book entirely meaningless, but it would certainly require a considerable revision of its language and point of view. In Appendix H we have taken a second look in the light of Kamin’s critique at some of the data that provide the main focus for his misgivings, namely the studies of adoptive families and separated identical twins. We do not find these data to be quite as fragile as does Kamin, and we find Kamin's analysis to suffer from a number of statistical and logical problems: our conclusion is that a reasonable person with environmentalist references could very well emerge from an appraisal of these data with a lower figure for the broad heritability of IQ than, say, Jensen's estimate of .80 (Jensen, 1967) or Burt's of .87 (Burl. 1972). but we do not believe that that figure would be anywhere in the neighborhood of zero. Essentially similar conclusions would hold for another recent paper in the spirit of Kamin’s. by Schwartz and Schwartz (1974).
     
    It is interesting that he outright disagrees with Kamin's 0%, but the most he says about Jensen and Burt's estimates is: "our conclusion is that a reasonable person with environmentalist references could very well emerge from an appraisal of these data with a lower figure for the broad heritability of IQ than, say, Jensen's estimate of .80 (Jensen, 1967) or Burt's of .87 (Burl. 1972)."

    We have all heard of "damning with faint praise", but one might almost call that "praising with faint damnation."

    "There is really very little known about the early post-Temple period..."

    Which B&E fully admit. The point they raised remains, however: most of the Jews around at the time of Christ eventually became Christian (or subsequently Muslim), so there was definitely some selection going on. That's not really a controversial point.

    Likewise, anyone who doubts that the scholarship-emphasis of the Pharisees/rabbis (or the costs of staying Jewish, particularly in the case of cash-poor and labor-dependent farmers who couldn't afford to spare their sons the time needed to develop into a scholar) had a heavy hand in shaping the Judaism that followed is likewise out on a limb, though doubtless other factors were involved, and we may never be able to pin down the particulars with any accuracy. B&E may be overplaying their hand somewhat, but that's not something that is likely to be provable either.

    Finally, the path that Ashkenazi Judaism took, in contrast to the rest of Jewry, cannot be disentangled from the fact that -- as B&E are able to retell with far more evidence -- in large swathes of Europe, moneylending was their primary cash cow, not to mention all the other professions you're bent on overlooking or de-emphasizing. It certainly played a bigger role than those horns you keep joking/not-joking about.

    Jews in Poland were victims of their own success. Money lending, tavern keeping, etc. are all great occupations but you only need so many of them. But rich Jewish guys kept having more and more kids (BTW, have you noticed that even today, when the average woman has 1.5 children, rich guys still tend to have a large # of kids although not necessarily with the same wife). Maybe when Jews were 2 or 3% of the population they could all fill these slots, but when they became 10% of the population it was impossible – you don’t need 1 banker for every 10 people.

    So, when you get to modern times (from the 18th century onward) , most Jews in E. Europe are neither money lenders nor tavern keepers (nor are most of them Bolsheviks). Mostly they are just poor shmucks like Tevye trying to scratch out a living from shoemaking or tailoring or some minor trade. Or fishermen like my grandfather. Whatever prosperity had ever existed in the family tree was a lost in the mists of history. Maybe my great-great-great, etc. grandfather was a money lender in France in 1090 but there was no historical memory of this at all. All they knew was poor.

    But somehow, in the mind of anti-Semites, ALL Jews were either bankers or Bolsheviks and guys like my grandfather had to take the rap for this even though he never saw (couldn’t read) a promissory note in his life and didn’t know Karl from Groucho.

    I'm not denying that -- see my above comment about the poor Jews that resulted when Jewish boys had outpaced the moneylending positions. My comments were specifically about medieval times. Despite those like Jane Plain whose frothing at the mouth apparently laves flecks on her iPad that obscure whatever doesn't conform to her prejudices (not that that stops her from replying) I'm not denying that eventually the available cushy jobs got relatively scarcer and scarcer as the population kept growing, which is presumably why so many Jews congregated to liquor and other such industries. What part of my comments -- except your own knee jerk confirmation bias -- would lead you to think otherwise?

    But do note that even in those latter earas, they were better off than the vast majority of peasants (i.e. the vast majority of gentiles) in that they...well, weren't peasants. I.e. they weren't property of the manor. They also had far more wherewithal to become literate given that peasants by and large didn't.

    "But the poorest Jew was a bit wealthier than the peasants in the neighboring village. The peasant was a vassal while the Jew moved freely. The peasant was illiterate while the Jew had some knowledge.
     
    Why is that so hard for you to accept? You may think it's no biggie, and you may think those earlier centuries when Jews were essentially lesser nobility has no bearing today, but if so, pull my other leg. As Gregory Clark's work has indicated, having been high and mighty four centuries or more ago can still matter to this day, especially in relation to some great-great...-great grandson of peasants who was never high and mighty to begin with, and who is increasingly being asked to pay a price for what whites (i.e. rich people, both Jew and gentile) did to "oppressed people" (i.e. those who like his ancestors were merely property), with the eager encouragement of those same whites (again, both Jew and gentile) who were far more likely to have been responsible for all that, but will almost certainly never need to pay up.

    So if you held Christian beliefs and values in your heart you still would not convert. Is that correct?

    You have suggested in your reply to another commenter that your desire to avoid either execution or loss of inheritance is the basis of your public, open practice of a certain religion. That's perfectly understandable, but when it comes to discussion and debate you have to do better than what you have presented me with so far, namely, that a person (of your religion) cannot change his religion because it is against his religion. Sounds very much like circular reasoning.

    No, you read me wrong. I am perfectly happy living my life as a believing and practicing Muslim.

    Loss of inheritance (currently) and loss of head (in previous eras) was incentive for those who actually wanted to leave the faith, not to do so publicly.

    Well, if they leave the religion, they obviously don’t care about the rules not to leave it, so there you go. And since there are no laws to prevent or penalize this in secular societies, that’s really about it.

    If a Muslim person wants to marry a Christian so badly that they convert (as a precondition), there’s simply nothing to stop it from happening in the West. It doesn’t happen very often, usually it’s the other way around.

    Peace.

He long bemoaned Obama’s supposed poor treatment of Israel so we should have known better as to his true priorities.

    Israel was supposedly founded as a haven for Jews escaping anti-semitism in goy nations so Jew Jonathan Karten can emigrate there if his feelings got hurt on a U.S. campus instead of trying to make the university setting a safe space for Jews and killing the first amendment through activist judicial rulings which is what his case is designed to do.

    Where’s the (((ACLU)))? If Trump’s EO was written to protect white university students from libelous claims of white privilege, white supremacy and genocide of the Indians then the ACLU would have sought an injunction within hours and suddenly the anti-white, Jew led radical left would be free speech warriors.

    I still believe the kangaroo SCOTUS will rule 5-4, with John Roberts casting the 5th vote, that the 1A does not protect anti-semitism at some point in the not too distant future.

    Let's hear what Uncle Adolf has to say about this. He's always on the mark. Lol.

    "When the Zionists try to make the rest of the world believe that the new national consciousness of the Jews will be satisfied by the establishment of a Jewish State in Palestine, the Jews thereby adopt another means to dupe the simple-minded Aryan.

    They have not the slightest intention of building up a Jewish State in Palestine so as to live in it. What they are really aiming at is to establish a central organisation for their international swindling and cheating.

    As a sovereign State, this cannot, be controlled by any of the other states. Therefore, it can serve as a refuge for swindlers who have been found out, and at the same time, a high school for the training of other swindlers."

    either (1) the heritability derived from twin studies is grossly overestimated as some critics has been pointing out or (2) the research has been taken to the secret government labs in order to ‘weaponize’ it.

    (3) The problem is more complicated than people thought it was. Like controlled fusion, maybe.

    This just means they haven’t found the genes. It doesn’t mean at all that the genes (likely combinations thereof) don’t exist.

    Remember when they said 90% of the genome was meaningless “garbage DNA”? Biologists may be self selected for not being able to pass chemistry. Otherwise I don’t know why they would say such dumb things. But a dumb thing it was, and they said it, consistently and for years.

    Proving that there’s no pattern is very difficult, almost impossible. When you just blindly say it, you risk being very wrong.

    The twin studies stand. The results weren’t over-estimated, they are what they are. It’s a much harder job to find out “why” within the genome.

    The main point I would like to emphasize, at the risk of obliterating some nuance, is that what is objectionable about the Jews---their urbanity, perversity, and sophistication with abstract money---are not so much the race-traits of a "people" but the essence of decadent civilization itself. The elites of the Western world, formerly called WASPS (now an antiquated term), but more accurately known as globalists or oligarchs, embody all that was comprehended in the "Judaism" of classical antisemitism. The Jews reached this terminal point of civilization a thousand years before the Christian West did. Maimonides, the Jewish Kant, the plebian explainer and leveler of all things who transfomed a once metaphysical religion into a refined form of intellectual egotism, serves as a rough indicator of when the Jews took the decisive step into worldliness. Now that the Western elites have "caught up," the distinctiveness of Judaism is growing less and less significant. Thus, while classical antisemitism is entirely right in decrying everything that it does, it is quite wrong in atributing these qualities to Jews as a race. The very WASPy CEOs and govees like the Clintons and the Davos set, along with Chinese and Indian grandees, are the "Jews" of today, with the remnants of ethinic Judaism of course continuing to play a signficant role; but another generation or two, and the history of this ethinic Judaism will be accomplished as it dissolves itself into the polyglot Western upper crust.

    There is a religious dimension that the above materialist description fails to capture, but that will need to be discussed in another context.

    Your basic premise is that the law has to be made right for money to work.

    That argument is the one that the "positivist" Zarlenga AMI camp argues.

    I'm a fan of Hudson, as he has to walk a fine line. Edgar (one of the participants) asks good questions, and basically nails Michael down on what the properties of money are/ and should be.

    Nobody is perfect, and Hudson is doing good work.

    In my opinion, the MMT camp is remiss in leaving the superstructure of bank money power in place. Giving money power, or Hypothecation ability to banking corporations has not worked - that is the verdict of history. Even in high trust societies like Japan the money power has been perverted.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5Ac7ap_MAY&t=1s

    Also, our Jewish friends work feverishly to own the money power, and pervert law to their benefit, or at every opportunity they can create or utilize.

    The money power has to be put into a lock box monetary authority of good constitutional law. Then citizens with guns watch the monetary authority like a hawk.

    Today's scheme of distributed debt means we do not know where to aim our guns.

    When the money power is privatized (as it remains so in MMT), then privateers and back-room dealers maneuver to take rents, or make themselves god.

    But good luck getting Parry et al. to acknowledge that point.

    The WW2 official narrative is more challenged than it ever was, and the stupid Allies have only themselves to blame for it. The EU recently pushing to demonise the role played by the USSR in WW2 has had unwanted effects.

    As a consequence, the Russians have been pulling lots of unpleasant skeletons from their archives. For instance, the information that, as late as 1938, the Poles intended to erect a statue to celebrate Hitler is particularly enlightening and sheds a different perspective on Poland’s posture as “innocent victim” of WW2.

    Was blessed to grow up in America. After decades in the Church, never heard such things. Have known plenty of Jewish and Catholic converts; they mentioned no such offenses.

Have always found Orthodox to be reasonable, with consideration for many points of view.

  • @Jack D

    Ashkenazim have higher average IQ than whites but there is no evidence that the smartest 1% of Ashkenazim are smarter than the smartest 1% of whites.
     
    This shows a complete ignorance of statistics and the operation of the normal distribution. Once you concede than Ashkenazim have higher average IQ than whites, then by necessity they will have a higher IQ at all points on the curve including at the 99th percentile. This is a matter of pure mathematics and requires no further evidence.

    When the mean is shifted like that, the effects are magnified at the tail. A 1 SD shift will mean that out that the far right tail there are maybe 10x as many Jews as their prevalence in the population. Jews are 2% of the general US population but maybe 20% of those with IQ above say 150. Note however that there are still 4 non-Jewish geniuses for every Jewish one. (The same thing happens in reverse for blacks because of their lower population mean IQ - blacks are 15% of the population but maybe 1.5% of those above 150 IQ).

    But your original "no evidence" statement is utterly wrong. The smartest 1% of Jews (a group of 60,000 people in America) are far smarter on average than the smartest 1% of whites (a group of 2 million).

    Only 1 in 300 American blacks have an IQ at 120 or higher, so how could they constitute one in 67 of those two standard deviations ( 150 IQ) above that threshold in the total population?

    • Replies: @Jack D
    OK, it's even worse than I said. The point is that if say you had a country that was 98% black and 2% white (and the blacks didn't kill or expel the remaining whites), then whites would occupy the same niche as Jews - they would be 20% of the high IQ group. It's an statistical artifact of the difference in mean IQ between two groups, not some tribal conspiracy.

    How do you propose solving the Jewish problem? Especially world wide Zionism.

    very simple!

    End the Fed!

    The Jewish people are not a congenitally flawed people. They’re just more ethnocentric (tribal) than most, because of the masturbatory, supremacist idiocies they ego-jerk off to in their Torah and Talmud.

    If it weren’t for the Fed, they’d be no more troublesome than any other group of people.

    But the Fed is their ‘monster from the id’, so to speak. An unlimited fount of earthy power, and it has attracted the worst of the Jewish people to its Moloch-like pig god of human sacrifice and avarice for unlimited, absolute power.

    Hitler didn’t want Jews dead because he viewed them as rivals of global power, he wanted them dead because he knew until the last Jew is gone, they will come back for revenge and dominate.
     
    This is confusing. Other Hitler-lovers say Hitler didn't mean to kill Jews or even killed them. But you say he did mean to and did kill them.

    But the REVENGE excuse is unconvincing. After all, the Shoah kicked into high gear just when Germany was fated to lose the war regardless of what the Jews wanted. In other words, revenge was coming one way or the other, and it was coming mostly from Anglos and Russkies(and Slavs such as Poles and Czechs who were hungry for revenge; indeed, the main anti-German violence came from Slavs following end of WWII). Also, Hitler wanted Germany to be utterly demolished for having failed him. His vision for Germany was grimmer than that of Morgenthau. He ordered Speer to blow up everything. He wanted the German race to perish with him.

    Now, rewind back to the beginning of Hitler's rise to power. Even back then, he and his cohorts had a special loathing for Jews(and it was of course mutual), but why this special hatred between Nazis and Jews? Because Nazis were for social justice for Germans whereas Jews were evil monsters? Or because Jews were pure as snow while Nazis were total vermin? No, the loathing was mutual because both sides had visions premised on total war and/or domination. Nazis wanted Aryans to be the premier world power for 1000 yrs and more. Jews wanted it for themselves. Both were supremacist, and it was a clash between the supremacist egos. Hitler might have pulled it off if he had avoided war with USSR. Jews did pull it off by taking over the US that rules over EU and other satellites.

    ” Other Hitler-lovers say Hitler didn’t mean to kill Jews or even killed them.”

    We “love” Adolf Hitler same as we “love” all great historical figures-especially those that exposed and resisted Jewish power.

    Nice try, you Jewish supremacist clown (or philosemitic bozo).

    “The alleged Hitlerite gas chambers and the alleged genocide of the Jews form one and the same historical lie, which has permitted a gigantic political and financial swindle whose main beneficiaries are the state of Israel and international Zionism and whose main victims are the German people – but not their leaders – and the Palestinian people in their entirety.”

    The US can no longer get what it wants. It has wanted to take back Venezuela for two decades and can't do it. It wanted the Taliban defeated and eliminated by 2002. It wanted a stable pro-Israel pro-US Iraq by 2004 at the latest. It wanted Iran, the "7th country in 5 years" destroyed (or "regime changed") by 2006. It wanted Assad out. It wanted North Korea to give up its nukes. It wanted Turkey to stop working with Russia and give up the S-400. It wanted Pakistan to stop tilting toward China. It wanted the Ukronazis to win. It wanted Russia to cave. It wanted to stop Russia from being Europe's biggest energy supplier. It wanted Chinese economic growth, and the technological and military power it buys, to flatline. And so on.

    Meanwhile the other poles of the multipolar world led by Russia, China, and Iran have let the US spend itself into a corner. The dollar is hollowed out and will collapse whenever the other poles want it to. And the big expensive military that killed the dollar can't even beat backwards tribesmen in places like Yemen and Afghanistan. So the 2020s will undoubtedly witness the US getting less and less of what it wants. The US ability to dictate terms to the world is over.

    As for the Zionists, they are just a parasite that sucks whatever blood is available. America's blood is almost gone. So they will diversify their bloodsucking, and are in fact already doing so.

    The US can no longer get what it wants.

    But the US never got everything it wanted. During the Cold War, it lost Cuba. And even its successes in Latin America smeared US reputation as it had to support right-wing death squads. US pulled out of Vietnam. US power was at its zenith with the fall of Soviet Empire, but by the end of the 20th century, Putin and nationalists were regaining power in Russia. And the Middle East was mostly intact except for Iraq that had been crushed in the Gulf War. (Still, Hussein was in power until 2003.) So, it’s wrong to say the world order went from US getting everything to US not getting everything. US never got everything.

    It has wanted to take back Venezuela for two decades and can’t do it

    .

    But Venezuela is on shaky legs and is far weaker than in the Bush II years when Chavez was snubbing its nose. Chavez deserves praise as nationalist, but his version of socialism was deeply flawed as it depended on high oil prices and patronage machines. Once oil prices plummeted, so did the economy. The regime in power is weaker than ever and just holding on. Also, US mostly pushed back against the Latin National Left. Ecuador is now in hands of US stooges. Brazil is ruled by pro-Zionist Bolsanaro. Bolivia is now ruled by pro-US junta-backed ‘democracy’. Cuba, though independent, signed onto globo-homo nonsense.

    It wanted the Taliban defeated and eliminated by 2002. It wanted a stable pro-Israel pro-US Iraq by 2004 at the latest.

    Maybe, maybe not. In a way, the Taliban resistance is useful excuse for the US to keep occupying the nation. If the Taliban had really been eradicated, US would no longer have any reason to stay. US wants to occupy Afghanistan, not let it go. So, as long as the US has the ‘Taliban’ excuse, it stays and gets what it wants, thus encircling both Russia and Iran.

    As for Iraq, it was a disaster, but that was good for the Empire of Judea(that rules the US) in a way. After all, a stable democracy in Iraq might still be nationalist and still pro-Arabist. It’s possible that once the Jewish-run US realized that the Shia-led regime in Iraq would lean toward Iran, it secretly armed and aided Sunni insurgents to attack and subvert the government. Make Arabs fight Arabs. Play both sides. To the extent that new Iraq had been a never-ending story of Arabs killing Arabs, the Empire of Judea loves it. After all, it created the exact same conditions in Libya and Syria. So, in that sense, the ‘disaster’ of Iraq turned out to be a handy template in dealing with other Arab nations. Don’t invade and turn them into democracies. Just arm and fund certain ‘moderate rebel’ factions and set them loose to turn the Middle East upside down. While Israel is peaceful and prosperous, look at the horrible status of Iraq, Libya, and Syria. Total hell on earth. It looks like ‘failure’ but is actually success. And Jewish-run US pulled it off with help from treacherous Saudi Arabia and Turkey.

    As for Iran, it is reeling more than ever from economic sanctions. Given that Iran is a huge nation, it’s likely that US doesn’t want full-blown war with it. Rather, it uses financial terrorism and other means to undermine Iran, and it’s been very successful. US didn’t get Assad out but got the next best thing. An utterly ruined Syria where US continues to occupy and steal oil. As for Pakistan leaning closer to China, that is the consequence of US growing closer to India, the much bigger prize. Though India is too big for the US to push around, it’s been working with US as bulwark against China-Pakistan. To be sure, the Hindus are clever and play both sides.

    It wanted the Ukronazis to win. It wanted Russia to cave. It wanted to stop Russia from being Europe’s biggest energy supplier.

    The Ukronazis did win. They are still in power in alliance with Judeo-Nazis. Also, the energy war is just starting. With the shale revolution, the US aims to export tons of liquid gas to the EU.
    As for China, who knows what will happen. It’s debt is 3x its GDP.

    The dollar is hollowed out and will collapse whenever the other poles want it to. And the big expensive military that killed the dollar can’t even beat backwards tribesmen in places like Yemen and Afghanistan.

    But even now, nothing comes close to the power of the dollar. And Chinese economy depends so much on export to the US. In that sense, US has China by the balls. China relies far more on US market than other way around. Also, US military didn’t engage in Yemen. In Afghanistan, it is there to occupy and continues to do so.

    So the 2020s will undoubtedly witness the US getting less and less of what it wants.

    But the US is still the #1 destination for smart people around the world. They will coming to NY, LA, and San Fran to serve the US in its high-tech domination. Immigration is mass treason. Hindus, Muslims, Chinese, Russians, and etc come to the US to make money and to serve the Empire of Judea, often against their own kind. Palestinians in the US pay taxes that go to support Israel’s oppression of Palestinians.

    As for the Zionists, they are just a parasite that sucks whatever blood is available.

    The problem is they are para-hosts. Yes, Jewish power is parasitic and sucks blood, as in the 2008 bank bailouts. But Jewish genius does create lots of new enterprise and money, and goyim(esp politicians) suck on Jewish money and have grown dependent on it. Jews are not like the Sicilian-Americans in GOODFELLAS who are purely parasitic or like Gypsies who only steal. Jews do a lot of bad shit but they are also at the frontline of the creating the new world of technology and markets. Thus, too many goyim have grown dependent on Jewish money-making. They suck blood of Jews who suck on blood of goyim.

Meanwhile in France where I currently live, any action taken by Macron to reduce energy consumption and reduce the effects of climate change caused by vehicle emissions are met with fire and fury by a small percentage of it’s citizens.
     
    You can't get more deranged than this. African men making 13 babies, not providing for them, leaving women with children behind, not having wits to foresee any problems (hey, how do I provide for so many kids with low productivity of labor in most of Africa and semi-desert prone to droughts area?).
    No, this is all fault of evil White males, cause they don't do enough to fight climate change and to provide for 'refugees'.

    African men making 13 babies…

    The article didn’t say that. Her family is “extended”, not her birth canal. TFR is down to 4.2 in Senegal. Wars, murder, and disease take care of much of the excess.

    What emigration may do to the birth rate is a good question. But immigration (here) is not part of the solution!

    Quoddy Head Light in Maine is almost as close to Western Sahara, and even Senegal, as it is to San Luis Obispo. Let’s make sure the maps we send them are distorted in our favor. As in, we’re running out of room:

  • Earlier this month I noted that the volume of comments on our website had become enormous, frequently exceeding 4 million words per month, a figure probably considerably larger than that of websites whose traffic completely dwarfs our own. What began as a simple webzine has now evolved into something closer to a wide-ranging discussion forum....

    I am not talking about West or East. Nor am I talking about the potency or progeny of propaganda in the past which was related to a specific cause at a specific time and place. Historically hate propaganda and had a modicum a thread of reality to which the propaganda was built on. One could take a thread and weave a rug.

    Not so of the internet which knows no east or west or specific cause and or location. It is universal and ubiquitous therefore it has no shelf life and just keeps perpetuating lie after lie, with a life all its own.

    Since there is no identity there are no consequences. The Nazis had to stand trial, as well as the Vatican.
    A good example of interminable internet hate speech on this site would be Rurik who calls for the elimination of world wide Jewry to solve his problems his perceived problems.

    He is dangerous. I wonder what he proposes as a means to eliminating Jews. He has invited you and all Muslims to help, and you are humor him. The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
    You should slap him down for the hate monger he is. He is a racist with no rational to support his hate. A prime example of hate propaganda being spread with no end in site. Nothing good can come of him or his ideas.

    You are preaching to the choir. I am not a racist in any way. If I were, I’d hurt my lab badly. My best graduate student was a white American girl, my second-best was a Chinese girl. My best post-doc was a Chinese guy, my semi-lab manager is a Ukrainian guy. My best tech was a black girl from Cameroon. I had pretty decent post-docs from Korea and Israel. I had people from various countries on five different continents in my lab, as I judge people exclusively on their personal merits.
    What’s more, I believe that all the worst problems in the world are caused by money bags, Jewish and non-Jewish alike, and their insatiable greed. In my book Soros and Adelson are just as much scum as Koch brothers or Sam Walton.

    The Israelis are shooting Arab children in Gaza every week and moving inexorably to cleanse Palestine of Palestinians, just as the Torah commands,

    Joshua 6:

    21 Then they devoted to destruction by the edge of the sword all in the city, both men and women, young and old, oxen, sheep, and donkeys.
     
    And that's just fine with our resident Zionist, Fran, which in not surprising, but it is a little surprising that our resident gold star Musllims don't seem to have much of a problem with it either.

    Sam Walton has been dead since 1992, I don't if we can blame him for what the current members of the Walton family are doing. The basic business model remains the same, but it's possible Sam wouldn't have taken it so such extremes.

    Putin wished Zelensky a happy New Year, looking forward to Keverich writing an angry wall of text about it

    I hope that Putin & Zelensky both have a happy New Year. Slav lives matter.

    (((Zelensky))) is no Slav. Putin is more about jew lives matter, the jews kill Russians in Syria and then he invites the jew leader to the Moscow parade, how do you say cuck in Russian?
  • The New York Times recently published an opinion piece by its gun-grabbing, open borders in-house "conservative" columnist Bret Stephens asserting that Ashkenazi Jews are an elite race by nature of their superior hereditary, culture and soul. For sure, there are Jews of exceptional intellect and ability, but this is true for most races. Stephen's dictation...
  • @Brás Cubas
    I am sorry. Perhaps I was a little unfair with the author and his piece is not as worthless as I said. Bardon Kaldian and Dumbo wrote much better comments, and they were shorter than mine. I'm learning, I'm learning.

    And I take the opportunity to apologize to Ron Unz. He is obviously a brilliant guy. According to an old interview, he said his IQ was 214. Can you imagine that? 214, for Christ's sake. So, moral of the story: I should never try to understand what goes on in the mind of a much brighter man than me.

    Ron Unz said his IQ was 214.

    A perfect score on the Mensa IQ test is 161 for adults and 162 for people under 18.

    Here are some kids who received a perfect score…

    There are high-range IQ tests, and maybe Ron scored 214 on one or more of those. They suffer from not being tested against large samples of people, but pretty much any hard abstract questions can be used to differentiate levels of "g". People make up such questions and deliver them as high-range IQ tests. As test results accumulate, presumably statistical validity of these scores and the technology generally are improving at least gradually, but the idea is that you use really hard questions and allow unlimited time. They're much different from tests designed for use on a population with a mean score around 100.

    This ongoing discussion was brought to my attention, so I think I may as well clarify the facts by providing a link to a comment I left earlier this year after an hour-long interview with Prof. Steve Hsu provoked some similar remarks:

    https://www.unz.com/isteve/hsu-unz/#comment-3223837
  • I thought Stevens’ article was sort of self-congratulatory and pointless, but on the other hand if someone’s going to attack it like this, I’ll have to point out that what Stevens said is in fact at least generally true. I don’t remember it exactly enough to claim that it is 100% faultless.

    Striker seems to know nothing about relativity or its place in physics. That’s OK, most people don’t. But then he shouldn’t have pretended that he did when he didn’t. As a result he made a lot of very wrong statements and looks like a fool. I won’t bother pointing out the errors, because then he’d probably use my corrections in a new cut and paste job.

    To write a correct summary about relativity theories, Mr. Striker would need to learn physics. Failing that he could learn to code. If he can’t even do that, he can continue writing his antisemitic nonsense and see if someone will pay him for that.
