@moon_overmiami@DrDenaT@KBoomhauer@Me2S3M It's one unhappy aspect, but in general, white people who have less positive views of other races have lower neuroticism, depression and suicide. So in general they're happier. That doesn't necessarily mean I'm generally happy, but I will tell you I am.
@moon_overmiami@DrDenaT@KBoomhauer@Me2S3M Also in experiments on interaction, whites who have more negative views of other races (implicit association and explicit statement) are rated as being warmer, more likely to initiate contact, and sit ever so slightly closer to people of other races when talking.
@moon_overmiami@DrDenaT@KBoomhauer@Me2S3M So in terms of being "cold" to brown people, it's literally the opposite. This kinda makes sense as whites with lower views of brown people tend to have lived around them more, and so they (you?) aren't foreign or imagined to have super-strength.
@moon_overmiami Sure but that means closed borders. And for the United States, that means massive racial partitions and forced population transfers (like India in 1948).
That means first telling people it's okay to want a country for their people, to not demonize it into thinking they have to..
@moon_overmiami .. be "americans" (whatever the fuck that means). If a Somali muslim can be an "american", then the term is meaningless.
Your home is defined by exclusion. If anyone can enter your home, then it's not really your home. Same with a home-land. If any foreigner can come in and vote
@moon_overmiami then you don't actually have a country. You exist in some sort of polyglot construct. That's why white americans are actually a stateless people - like the Kurds. We have no representation, any attempt at it becomes "white supremacy". Any attempt to escape is "segregation".
Looking more deeply at some IQ results, something that pops out at me that should be important is "point of failure". For example in "progressive martices", it's called that because the questions get progressively harder. But what I notice when I take them, and the data seems...
... to bear this out is that there is a "point of failure". Basically the point in the test that a person, more or less, just stops being able to make sense of any question and answer in any meaningful way.
And I suspect this "point of failure" is more meaningful than overall...
... score. Intuitively, it seems really uninteresting how "efficient" they are in the band of questions they can answer. That seems more like type-A, diligence sort of thing. IRL, you can, through effort, grind out those kinds of questions. But a meaningful intelligence test...
China has masculinity programs, it's common knowledge there that Jews run america, and they aggressively contain the few blacks that live there.
Meanwhile, they promote a the whole anti-white oppression narrative in the US. It reminds me of how Poland-Lithuania was destroyed.
Austria & Prussia would engage in modernizing reforms in their own countries on land rights, freedom of profession and meritocracy. The PLC had elections (nobles could vote) for their Monarch, and they bribed the electors to vote for a monarch who would keep the PLC backward.
Meanwhile China is promoting in the US the elimination of meritocracy and transferring power from the most capable to the least capable. From the best to the worst, and funding to galvanize all manner of imagined grievance. While doing the opposite in China.
@_Serene_96@Carvo__@NickJFuentes Okay so forcing people to do things. Yes, you can force people to do things if you can afford the force. It's an extra expense, and it's permanent.
And as soon as that force gets removed, they're still Africans and revert to genetic baseline.
@_Serene_96@Carvo__@NickJFuentes You're saying "lets put a really expensive time bomb inside ourselves". How bout you just have good quality people at the genetic level that you don't have to manage so much? Then you can have more freedom as well.
@_Serene_96@Carvo__@NickJFuentes This reminds me of leading by orders and leading by task. Poor quality troops have to be told specifically what to do. Good quality troops can be given a general order - more freedom. What you're describing is bringing in poor quality people and reducing freedom to compensate.
@MarkMcCaig@TexasGOP Depending on perspective, it could be counter-racist and counter-semitic. The Jews in the US are not the same as the Jews in Israel.
Do you think democrats are awful? Jews are the drivers of the democrat party, and 75% of Jews vote democrat in the US. They're not Israelis.
@MarkMcCaig@TexasGOP Maybe you should be more empathetic and understand the rage. When you say "racist", you only mean white people having insufficiently positive views of, mainly, blacks. I.e. you're "concerned" about the least racially-aware race being slightly less browbeaten.
@MarkMcCaig@TexasGOP The younger generation doesn't care about lolbertism. The US is about race struggle. It's race-land. How do young people respond to anti-white narratives? Push back or accept? The GOP offers zero pushback.
@ImmuneHack@wil_da_beast630 On UK data, keep in mind the A-levels are NOT a single standardized test. The tests a person takes are determined by the level of classes they take in school. And thus you will see a compression effect when comparing between groups.
@ImmuneHack@wil_da_beast630 That said, the things you're proposing here are the ONLY serious environmental factors explaining part of the race-IQ gap. And they're the only factors that can seriously narrow the "g" gap. Send someone to school a long time, or make them take IQ practice tests if you want...
@ImmuneHack@wil_da_beast630 ... to just pump up the IQ numbers. But you're actually dealing with some underlying physiological factors that are the kinds of things that can impact "g". So I applaud you in being a bit more serious than most academics on this.
Second off, you may have been trying to prove a point by scoring deliberately low the first time. And since we know that "left wing" people are more willing to lie, and you're clearly motivated on this, that's not something that should just be hand-waved away.
@wil_da_beast630 Third off, applying this to the charter-public school gap, if there even is one, is a leap. Lottery voucher studies (really natural experiments) have shown rather decisively that there is no significant effect from "good schools".
@wil_da_beast630 Now this will be resisted by flashing studies and authors' conclusions, which is an example of what should be called "regime flavor". For example, Sandra Scharr described the MTAS as vindicating an environmental hypothesis. So inb4 doing that.
@ZihoParkEcon@EPoe187 No? Blacks were gifted a parallel society instead of being sent back to africa. All of the "lack of opportunity" claims are blacks being barred access to whites.
Segregated schools for example. Is that an advantage or disadvantage for whites?
@ZihoParkEcon@EPoe187 Blacks had their own institutional nexus. Their own businesses, schools, neighborhoods. There was nothing written in stone that it was destined to be worse.
Of course it was because of genetic differences. The whole disparity between Europe and Africa attests to that.
@ZihoParkEcon@EPoe187 But when you say "blacks in 'the US' had less opportunities than whites in 'the US'", well that's a product of being from a different sub-country. They were in the "black US". Sure, Romanians probably had less opportunities too. Are we on the hook for that?
@Duke_Libertas Once you get into wars of mass mobilization, the concept of the "decisive battle" becomes less important, unless you define "battle" more broadly. For example, the "battle of France", if that's classed as a "battle", was extremely decisive.
@Duke_Libertas Basically, when the entire army is 50,000 men, and it's in one location, and communication is what we would consider extremely poor, all sorts of wild things can happen in an afternoon. Naval warfare retained the capacity to stackwipe 5 years of production in a day far longer.
@Duke_Libertas When armies get bigger, a decisive outcome in one "tactical-level" battle is almost impossible by WW1. The closest you can get is something like Sedan, where a tactical level battle later led to a broader strategic encirclement even if the losses at Sedan itself were unimportant.
@Duke_Libertas Japanese losses for example were a function of trained airmen. The carrier losses were bad, but a carrier is useless if it's airmen can't stand up against their opponents. I.e. - the air battles in the Solomons probably did more damage to total combat power than Midway.
@Duke_Libertas Now on a per day basis? Yes, Midway was probably the biggest blow. The "Marianas Turkey shoot" not so much because they were shooting down poorly trained airmen who the Japanese could replace.
@Duke_Libertas The Stalingrad pocket was certainly a bodyblow, but the overall campaign saw more Soviet than German losses. Stalingrad was a symptom, not a cause, and in the overall analysis was not a turning point. It's not like the Germans had 250k from their OOB just poofed away.
@Mattie258@PramilaJayapal Well over 90% of US forces were conscripted. On a population ratio, the Nazis got more Ukrainian volunteers than Americans got from their own population.
I'm sure they liked america, but the great bulk of soldiers went to war because the state told them to.
@Mattie258@PramilaJayapal As for the red tails, they were guys who wanted to be fighter pilots. Whether they had some great love for america is impossible to know. They were probably more fond of it than the average black person at the time.
@Mattie258@PramilaJayapal There's all sorts of psychological things going on that makes it almost mandatory to say "I fought because I loved my country". 1. It makes you seem better 2. The atrocities uncovered after the war 3. The whole war propaganda and fervor over the course of the war
For example, the famed "red tails" squadron was the only US fighter squadron with a K:D ratio less than 1 in Italy in WW2.
@Mattie258@PramilaJayapal The Red Tails were a pet project of Elanor Roosevelt and were given premium training (they trained longer than any other fighter squadron before entering combat). They were up against an enemy with around 1/4 as much flying time b4 combat, with older aircraft and inferior fuel.
@Mattie258@PramilaJayapal The Red Tails were an elite sample of the black airmen as well - most were never given a commission as they were too incompetent. If US, UK and Soviet pilots were as skilled as the cream of the crop of black airmen, they would have lost the war.
@Mattie258@PramilaJayapal Whites are the only people who can be legally discriminated against in the US. The US is on track to be a white minority. All federal government agencies have some sort of program to limit the number of whites ("diversity" initiatives).
Can you think of another society that's run by Group A, and is hostile to all other groups - but all institutions in that society tell you to hate Group A?
@Mattie258@PramilaJayapal All institutions are telling you to hate whites. The only acceptable whites are those who also hate whites. Otherwise you are a "white nationalist". You probably have nothing against nationalism (you're probably not hostile to the existence of Korea for example), just white.
@itsbirdemic Do you think the fact that you have to use proxies for anything involving the brain function weaken the true relationship to "true intelligence" as opposed to something more reliable and easier to measure - like height?
@itsbirdemic Like, imagine if you wanted to measure "strength". Like "intelligence", "strength" can mean all kinds of things. And one of your metrics appears to be "educational attainment" - intuitively that seems like it would correlate with "true intelligence", but so would working in a...
@itsbirdemic ... job that tends to attract people who seem to be "strong".
The problem is that "intelligence" seems fuzzy, and I don't know how you would be able to tell if a method is at all capable of capturing "intelligence" genetic variance if it were there.
Watching Biden do everything in his power to lose popularity convinces me ever more of the "uniparty".
It always seemed so strange that the republicans and democrats remained in balance for so long given all the demographic changes. Makes me start to go tin-foil on it all.
Like, what if all this time, blacks were like 1/3 republican, and hispanics were always like 50-50. But it literally never mattered because every election's results were nudged just enough to get a pre-determined outcome. What if Trump, along with Qanon, was just a big "trust"?
There's no clear line. And what is "liberalism"? It's not a real thing. It's what comes from the University and spreads through all other institutions.
@jurijfedorov@KirkegaardEmil@desiraethinking That's what's real. The institutional nexus. If the Universities were promoting eugenics, that would be twitter's policy. And they'd feel super-strongly about it and would be mocking "save every baby" religious conservatives for their anti-eugenics by-god-try.
@jurijfedorov@KirkegaardEmil@desiraethinking So for "historians" to be "liberal" - of course! They are the heart of the University. What it "liberal" IS the University. It them permeates every institution because every institution is staffed by university-people at all meaningful levels.
1/ What if "slavery" was just called something else? Blacks worked fewer hours per year than free white farmers, had better nutrition as inferred from height (blacks are actually slightly shorter than whites today), and their life expectancy ratio was roughly the same today.
2/ And their literacy rate was ~20%, higher than most of the world. Certainly higher than black africa
When you actually break down what data there is on slavery, and how most former slaves who had a choice after the civil war actually chose to stay on with their former...
3/ masters, how horrible is this really compared to how most of the world actually was at the time? In Russia, you weren't a "slave", you were a "serf", though every metric of human development was worse than a US slave.
@osbornedynasty@DooKaHa1 They were abolished and new ones formed. You need to slow down and stop leaping to conclusions about what oter people think. Twitter is an extremely limited platform that I only use because it is a network monopoly - one of the newer "elite" structures.
@osbornedynasty@DooKaHa1 As for "traded in", there's no mechanism of "trading in". The people who ended feudalism are white people, and are currently the least controllable by elite institutions (which we can use various proxies to verify).
@osbornedynasty@DooKaHa1 The old land-monopoly governments ("feudalism") were abolished. There was a time where things were very free. Now things are beginning to close again for lots of reasons.
One of which is the dropping of genetic intelligence and importation of more easily controlled populations.
1. Females are more susceptible to the authoritarian view of knowledge (credentialism) and safe-feeling consensus-based decision-making.
In a competitive world, this fails and patriarchies win. A successful patriarchal society then lacks competitors,
2. Females are better at navigating and gaining power WITHIN a society. This doesn't mean actually becoming the nominal leaders (though that sometimes happens), but in making kings out of males with authority/consensus elevating males.
3. Thus sufficiently successful patriarchal society becomes credentialized and heavily based on consensus. It then lacks innovation, everything is incompetent, it becomes suffocating and impossible for smart people to do anything b/c they're trapped in a web of difficulty.
