Cultural stereotypes may be deep rooted in our genetic makeup, say scientists.

Common traits like British individualism and Chinese conformity could be attributed to genetic differences between races according to a new study.

The study, by the department of psychology at Northwestern University in Illinois, suggests that the individualism seen in western nations, and the higher levels of collectivism and family loyalty found in Asian cultures, are caused by differences in the prevalence of particular genes.

‘We demonstrate for the first time a robust association between cultural values of individualism—collectivism and the serotonin transporter gene,’ said Joan Chiao, from the department of psychology at Northwestern University.

Chiao and her colleagues combined data from global genetic surveys, looking at variations in the prevalence of various genes. The findings were matched with other research which ranked nations by levels of individualism and collectivism.

The team focused their attentions on the gene that controls levels of serotonin, a chemical in the brain which regulates mood and emotions.

Their studies found that one version of the gene was far more common in western populations which, they said, was associated with individualistic and free-thinking behaviour.

Another version of the same gene, which was prevalent in Asian populations, they said was associated with collectivism and a greater willingness to put the common good first.

People with this gene appeared to have a different response to serotonin.

If they are confirmed, the findings made by Chiao and her colleagues would suggest that races may have a number of inherent psychological differences—just as they differ in physical appearances.

Chiao suggests that the version of the gene predominating in Asian populations is associated with heightened anxiety levels and increased risk of depression.

She adds that such populations respond by structuring their society to ward off those negative effects.

The success of such social structures would then ensure that the gene would spread.

She added the findings showed how culture could exert a powerful influence on human genetics and evolution.

  • Western culture is the birth place of most innovation.

    The Chinese, though intelligent, seem lacking in that area, but excel in exploiting Western technology.

      They are the Borg.

        Drones or ‘bots.

  • loyalwhitebriton

    I think these findings also borne out by experience.
    The large majority of the thinkers, philosophers, artists, musicians, maverick innovators and scientists, have been western european-heritage men (and a few women).
    I’m not saying that having a gene which makes us free-thinking, rugged individualist’s necessarily makes us superior, but I believe that the world is a better place because of it.
    Besides, all scientific research which shows genuine differences between the races is ‘one in the eye’ for the multi-culti brigade. Such research gives us ‘ammunition’; something to quote.

    • Myra Esoteric

      To me as a woman of color, this is just part of the historical record that may not be flattering. The main concern for those of us in the ‘multi culti brigade’ is how to rectify this by helping those of us who are POC / women become more innovative and contribute more to human society. Not punishing white men or whatever, but improving the third world / POC.

      If the problem is more genetics than the aftereffects of poverty / oppression, then let us research this honestly. The researchers of this article are Chinese and not afraid to talk about a disadvantage in their own community.

  • Sounds like a quack science. Of course, stereotypes in behavior are statistically real & cannot be dismissed outright. Just, I’m skeptical about words “individualism” and “collectivism”. Sociological literature hasn’t offered much in this respect.

    Two examples.

    Jews are both highly individualistic & collectivistic. Many creative & nonconformist Jewish individuals have strong ties to their tribe & are willing to suppress their personal needs for the greater good of their ethnic group.

    Also, Russians are extremely individualistic & collectivist. When lady Ottoline Morel asked Bertrand Russell in 1920s is it possible that Bolsheviks are such monsters, Russell answered:

    “Have you read Dostoevsky- The Idiot, The Possessed, The Crime and Punishment ?”

    “Yes”

    “And how do you think such fiercely individualistic persons can be forced to obey a law, any kind of law ?”

    Maybe if you substitute “ego-centrism” for “individualism”, something more fruitful can follow.

  • “Their studies found that one version of the gene was far more common in western populations which, they said, was associated with individualistic and free-thinking behaviour.

    *****

    If Napoleon Bonaparte and Adolph Hitler had some Asian ancestors and were less “individualistic” (aka ego maniacs), there would be a heck of a lot more white people alive in the world today. Those two white guys probably caused the deaths of more white people than all the Asians, blacks, and Latinos/Hispanics in world history put together! That’s something to think about.

    Orientals & Occidentals might need each other to reach an optimal balance between cooperation & competition — yin & yang.

  • JohnEngelman

    In China control over floods and famines have given governments more control over the populations than Western governments have usually had. Chines governments have always been authoritarian. They have had effective ways to reward deference and to punish subordination. In the West people have often had to fight for survival. In China it has usually been a better idea to ask the government for survival. 
     
    The Chinese love for conformity contributes to a lower crime rate.

      And their mothers love to bury those same babies up to their necks in mud while these tend to the rice crop.

  • BritishNationalist

    The Orientals have an expression: Tall poppies get culled. They have been applying this philosophy for generations and seem to have, inadvertently, rendered the tall poppy extinct. Now they have few of the mavericks who make change happen and those which do crop up are living in a society hostile to their existence. If the Wright brothers had been born in China they would have been told to stop messing around with bicycle parts and get back to the paddy fields.

    For progress you need both individualists and a tolerance for individualism. Some countries have one but not the other, and many countries have neither.

       Or, as Cochran and Harpending (2009, p.112) put it:

      “The Japanese say that the nail that sticks out is hammered down, but in China it may have been pulled out and thrown away.”

      Bon

      • JohnEngelman

        We know of a gene that may play a part in this story: the 7R (for 7-repeat) allele of the DRD4 (dopamine receptor D4) gene. It is associated with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder 9ADHD) a behavioral syndrome best characterized by action that annoy elementary school teachers: restless-impulsive behavior, inattention, distractibility, and the like.
                                                                               
        The metamorphism is found at varying but significant levels in many parts of the world, but is almost totally absent from East Asia. Interestingly, alleles derived form the 7R allele are fairly common in China, even though the 7R alleles themselves are extremely rare there. It is possible that individuals bearing these alleles were selected against because of cultural patterns in China. The Japanese say that the nail that sticks out is hammered down, but in China it may have been pulled out and thrown away.

        http://www.amren.com/ar/2009/05/index.html     
         
        The absence of the 7R allele does not seem to be a genetic deficiency among the Chinese. 

  • JohnEngelman

    Yes. That’s the point all right.  On the average they are more intelligent. They also have lower rates of crime and illegitimacy. I am glad that Professor 
    Richard Lynn will be at the next American Renaissance conference. I wish Professor J. Philippe Rushton was also speaking, as he has spoken at previous American Renaissance conferences, because he points to the same facts about racial differences. 
     
    If one feels something strongly it is easy to overestimate the number of people who feel the same way, and easy to underestimate the difficulty of converting others to one’s persuasion. 
     
    What I feel is that facts matter.  I agree with Charles Murray that, “specific policies based on premises that conflict with scientific truths about human beings tend not to work. Often they do harm.”

      Yadda, yadda, yadda. Your Sinophilism is on overdrive this week. Give it a break.

      This is AmRen, not AsiaRen.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      John, I know you love facts, admire Dr. Murray and have read Human Accomplishment so I thought I’d add this:

      Charles Murray researched a list of “greatest achievers” for his book Human Accomplishment:  The Pursuit of Excellent in the Arts and Sciences, 800 B.C. to 1950,  which is  his ranking of the 4,000 most important artist, musicians and scientists in human history.
       
      Murray, who has half-Asian children, started the project wanting to devote particular attention to Asian accomplishments but found he couldn’t justify it, despite reserving eight of his 21 categories for non-Western arts.

      Sam Francis writes in his review of Human Accomplishment:

      Dr. Murray selected his 4,002 leading figures by surveying a large series of standard biographical and historical references and choosing people in the arts and sciences who are “mentioned in at least 50 percent” of them. The survey also includes non-Western cultures.

      Statistician and professional writer Steve Sailer, in his review, states:  

      This sounds simple, perhaps even simple-minded, but these kinds of metrics of eminence have been repeatedly validated during decades of use by social scientists…Murray meticulously dealt with each issue using his mastery of statistics… to my surprise, I can’t think of a single way to do it better than he did. His methods and lists should become the standards for future research. 

      In the sciences, 97 percent of the significant figures and events turned out to be Western. Is this merely Eurocentric bias? Of the 36 science reference books he drew upon, 28 were published after 1980, by which time historians were desperately searching for non-Westerners to praise. 

      France is tied with Britain and Germany as the leading nation, with Italy fourth. 

      Western Literature:  Shakespeare
      Western Art:  Michelangelo
      Western Philosophy: Aristotle
      Combined Sciences: Newton
      Western Music: Mozart and Beethoven tie, Bach third.

      Most accomplished person who ever lived according to Murray?

      Aristotle. 

      He more or less invented logic, which was of pivotal importance in human history and no other civilization ever came up with it independently. He wrote the essay on ethics (“Nicomachean Ethics”) that to my mind contains the bedrock truths about the nature of living a satisfying human life. He made huge contributions to aesthetics, political theory, methods of classification and scientific observation. Who else even comes close?

      • Most accomplished person who ever lived? LEBRON!!!

        • You’re probably joking.  But even if you want to think basketball is an “accomplishment” in the greater scheme of things, and I don’t, “LeBron” isn’t even that accomplished in that, when he’s too chicken to take the final shot to win a game every time he has a chance.

           Meanwhile, back on planet earth.

          You hate us because we are successful.  Your failures are not our fault. Whites have an average 100 IQ, for blacks, it’s 70. 

          Maybe you should be thanking us for all that we’ve given you instead of attacking us like the spoiled child that you are.  If you find Whites to be irredeemably racist, you can go live in the dumps that blacks create like Detroit.

          We’ve given you everything and all we get in return in resentment and violence.  

          Do us a favor and shut up.

          • JohnEngelman

            For blacks it is 85. For Orientals it is 106. For Ashkenazic Jews it is 112. Those who resent me here do so because I point out that Nordic Gentiles are not the most superior race. BTW, I am a Nordic Gentile.   

             Also, Beloved Comrade, your comment was uncalled for. John McNeal was not expressing hostility for anyone.

        • JohnEngelman

          John McNeal,
           
          Do not let the bigots run you out. Keep posting. 

      • JohnEngelman

        The imperial exam system selected the Chinese for superior intelligence while discouraging other kinds of achievement. The exams were not based on science, current events, and recent history, but on works of history, literature, and philosophy that were written before the first century AD. 
         
        In order to pass the exams one needed what we would recognize as a genius level IQ, but one spent one’s youth studying ancient classics. The imperial exam system enabled those who were intelligent enough to pass to have large numbers of children, but they directed the attentions of those people to the past, rather than to future achievements. 

        •  And ? I know this all, but it perfectly exemplifies the stasis of Chinese culture at its height. And these exams consisted mostly of Confucian canon (history, I Ching, poetry, Great Learning,..). No math, no science, no arts history as in the West, ..and philosophy is rudimentary compared to the Western one.

          No, to pass the exam one need not be a person of superior intelligence. Even in medieval Europe, curriculum was much more demanding:
          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trivium_%28education%29

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quadrivium

          • JohnEngelman

            A small minority of those who took the tests passed. I think many of the classics needed to be memorized by heart. What matters is that the most intelligent men in China passed the tests, entered the Scholar Gentry, and had the most children. That is why Chinese immigrants to the United States usually perform better academically than whites. 

  • JohnEngelman

    Integrated schools are only likely to reduce racial biases against blacks when blacks comprise a rather small minority. When blacks are in the minority most try to behave. When they are in the majority most behave the way they want to behave. Many behave in ways that increase racial biases. 

  • JohnEngelman

    stasis set in around the 17th century and China went into a cycle of decline and disintegration.     
                 
    – neanderthalDNA
                                                      
                     
    Western civilization began to achieve its dominance over other civilizations during the Renaissance. The advances of the ancient Greeks, which had not been advanced upon for over a thousand years, were advanced upon. During this time the Chinese indulged in something very similar to American exceptionalism. They concluded that they were the middle kingdom, and that they were surrounded by inferior nations from whom they needed to learn nothing.

  • Yes, but ethnic Russian Lenin called the shots, in all crucial decisions prior to 1922. Besides, most of Bolshevik leadership of Jewish extraction had been throughly assimilated & didn’t give a hoot about Jewishness.

  • JohnEngelman

    The heaviest blow that ever struck humanity was the coming of Christianity. Bolshevism is Christianity’s illegitimate child. Both are inventions of the Jew.
                                                                                                           
    – Adolf Hitler, from “Hitler’s Table Talk”         

    •  “Table talk” is a very suspicious “evidence”- it’s forgery in many parts. Then again- it’s an old assumption about Marxism (Bertrand Russell wrote about it extensively in his voluminous” A History of Western Philosophy”).

      Actually, the idea of the best way of living in the future is not originally Jewish, but a Zoroastrian one. What is associated now with millennialism, future Utopias & savior figures owes everything to Zoroaster/Zarathustra. Post-exilic Jews just took it from their former hosts.

    • We need to hear more of what Hitl;er said. His views on the (then) nascent State of Israel  were germane(if not German,ha ha ha ):He said it would be an organized crime ring with all the protections afforded a state. Was he wrong??

  • Agreed, at least partially. More- very great number of posts here are, essentially, an effort to delineate a philosophy of history (which is a very, very non-scientific discipline, from St. Augustine and Gioacchino da Fiore to Vico, Hegel, Marx, Spengler and Toynbee) and interpret it through findings of genetics and social Darwinism, the latter being also non-scientific.

    So, what is to be done ? In my humble opinion:

    * “hard” sciences have not offered yet a plausible explanation of racial differences which could be- at least tenuously – interpreted as causes of cultural and other traits and disparities. Maybe it’s impossible, I don’t know. Maybe it can be done, but if yes, then in the future.

    * if so, we can only rely on old approaches of combined history, geography, religion, historical demographics, economy,… And this approach says: West begins in the Greek miracle. Not in static Egypt, nor in later, rather slow witted but efficient Rome. And what we have with old Greeks (aside from bisexuality) ?

    1. the idea of man as a rational individual, frequently at war with gods
    2. very developed abstract language which is still the source of neologisms in sciences (and sometimes arts)
    3. democracy and other forms, but always questioning the forms of government
    4. naval orientation, which helped foster expansion & questioning of dogmas
    5. not very reverent approach to the tradition
    6. population which is, although significant, not very big in numbers

    In China, we have:

    1. a civilization which is by its very nature land-oriented (although, of course, not land-locked)
    2. conservative approach inherited from the Bronze Age, a refined “enlightened despotism”
    3. general conservatism & unwillingness to search for “the new”
    4. orientation towards practical, pragmatic and disregard for the abstract, which is seen in the structure of Chinese language (see Nakamura:
    Ways of Thinking of Eastern Peoples)
    5. too big population- China has always been ca. 15-25% of humankind

    In sum, if we are talking about not just practical inventions, but instead of complete civilizational orientation which could create a modern world, Chinese were lacking in:

    * abstraction

    * orientation towards the future

    * expansive disposition that comes from too many factors

  • This is just an article. What on earth journalists (and geneticists or brain specialists) know about complexities of history of ideas, language, mental patterns, exploration of new venues in human history…

    I’d say what Sir Isaac Newton accomplished was pretty spectacular.

    He was White, English and a Christian.

    According to Wikipedia, not known for being white-friendly:

    “Newton’s work has been said “to distinctly advance every branch of mathematics then studied”…Newton stated the three universal laws of motion that enabled the advances of the Industrial Revolution…and are still the underpinnings of the non-relativistic technologies of the modern world.  He defined the law of universal gravitation.”

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sir_Issac_Newton

    Remind me again:  When did those Asians physics and math geniuses first put a man on the moon?

    • saxonsun

      Sir Isaac Newton denied the divinity of Christ–and kept it very quiet. That was heresy  in England at  the time. He believed in God.

  • Beloved Comrade

    And even if we are more “creative”…they’re better in math it appears, lol…

    Oh, really?   I guess Gauss, Newton, Liebniz, Descartes, Euclid and Pythagorus didn’t know a bit about math, did they.

    Remind me again when the Asians put a Hubble-like orbiting telescope into space to peer into the depths of the universe?  I keep forgetting that those brilliant Asian physicists and mathematicians were “light years” ahead of us dull-witted Whites in space exploration and computer technology.  They did, after all, invent the Internet, computer and the software that drives them, not to mention the electrical grid that powers the entire tech world.

    Anyone here believe that Asians invented the modern world?

        I have two questions:
        1. As a black American, what do you think of the majority white Americans?.
        2. As a black American, do you feel like an American?.
        Just curious.

          1) the OP has decided to have some fun

          2) if not, then the new, real John McNeil, who is Black, is posting from his world-view- which is uproariously funny.

      • Beloved Comrade

        Once again John McNeal is doing stand up comedy.

        Europeans have a rich and proud history of achievement that both Blacks and HIspanics lack. 
In spite of this, they’re always talking about “Black pride” and “black power.”

        What they’re proud of I’m not sure

        Where does one begin with such childish and pathetically ignorant statements?

        Black achievement?  Yeah, they’ve got a few:  DOJ and FBI statistics showing blacks commit the vast majority of rapes in America and any other country they inhabit and 90% of interracial crime.

        Whites create, black destroy.

  • ? Why not ? We men have 2 heads. And frequently “think” with another one.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Jupiter, I agree.  And the importance of what you’ve written cannot be understated. 

    Really, all that matters is that we Whites are being genocided in our homelands everywhere, on purpose and some like Wise and Bell are cheering this on.  We are ~ 7% of the world’s population, declining in number and our living spaces are being over-run by the Third World and destroyed.  

    We Whites are literally losing our nations and our identities, and people are actually cheering it on. They don’t do the same for any other race, just ours.

    Since 1948, international law has defined genocide as the deliberate destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious or national group. Raphael Lemkin, who created the word, used it broadly to describe not only outright extermination, but also demographic restructuring and policies that bring about the destruction of culture, language, national feelings and religion. 

    There is no justification for the current program of GENOCIDE against White children.

    Bon

    • JohnEngelman

      White children are not being destroyed. They are being exposed to academic competition from Oriental children, who usually perform better. 

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        John:

        White homelands are being systematically destroyed through massive non-White immigration.  

        Without White homelands, there will be no White race.  

        How is this not genocide?

        This is not happening to any other race except for Whites.  It is genocide.

        Whites living in societies run by non-Whites are in physical danger — including ones run by Asians.  Ask the South African Whites who post here, or those who live in London or those who were driven out of Detroit by black criminals.

        Asian homelands are not being inundated with millions of non-Asians who are putting an end to their historic culture and way of life.  But this is what we Whites are facing in our homelands.

        Asian culture and Asian races are secure.  Ours is not. We Whites are literally losing our nations and our identities — and people are cheering it on!  They don’t do this for any other race, only the White race, re:  Tim Wise, Derek Bell.

        Imagine Chinese in China being accused of “racism,” “hatred,” and “intolerance,” because they want to preserve their culture and identity in the face of extinction. 

        No one is calling for the extinction of the Chinese, East Indians or Japanese, only Whites.

        It is genocide.  And it is being targeted at Whites, no other race.

        What possible reason could there be for Asians to be in White homelands competing with our White children?  Why would we want them here?  If their culture is superior to ours and they are so intelligent, why do they need to come here?

        We Whites were doing fine without them, look at my comment above about White achievement.

           Who is calling for the extinction of whites?  Orientals who move here usually perform and behave better than whites. Also they are not migrating here in large numbers because their own societies are doing well. I do not see what the problem is.  I agree that third world immigration should be curtailed. It is not curtailed because most Americans either do not want it to be, or they lack strong feelings on the subject.

            John!  Open your eyes.  Have you not read AR lately?   Or looked around?   

            No one asked us Whites if we wanted our homelands flooded with the destitute from the Third World.  My home state of California, which was once 90% White and had the best schools in the nation, is about to implode from the economic stress of supporting a massive, growing, non-taxpayng Third  World underclass. Productive Whites are voting with their feet and leaving in droves, 2 million in the past 10 years.You will NEVER convince me that White Americans are desirous of the country their ancestors created for them to be flooded with non-Whites.And, there are calls, loud calls, for our White extermination and demise:In South Africa:Aggressive Julius Malema wants to use violence to overthrow ANC-leadership: and keeps inciting followers with chants calling for the mass-murders of whites at public meetings.From Zimbabwe:White men are decreasing in number and we are making sure!Outcry from the Western Press?  The UN?  Human Rights Commissions?  Double Standard do you think??Or how about this from Little Timmy WiZe?Do you hear it?

The “signs”  of White genocide are all around us, John.

          • Yes, but Orientals (let’s call South and East Asian peoples with this name) are around 3 billion people. And they- Indians, Chinese, Thais, Vietnamese, Japanese, Koreans, Bengalis, … possess old cultures, some going back as far as 1700 B.C.

            So- why would a 310 million nation, created by European peoples (White race + English language + Western culture) lead a policy of ethnic inundation, which is, essentially, suicidal ?

            Although they fall back behind White Europeans even today in creativity & originality & inventiveness , Orientals can oust average Whites in the US simply by sending their upper crust- this is the upper crust of more than 3 billion people, a huge numerical disparity – 10 times more than the entire US population.

            So, it’s not that average Joe is lazy & spoiled. It’s that he’s being pushed aside by the best “specimens” from an enormously bigger pool.

            Denmark has ca. 5 million people, as I recall; also, there are more than 300 million Bengalis. It’s easily imaginable that if Denmark were to lead a relaxed immigration policy towards Bengalis, it is certain that most qualified jobs would go to the Bengalis- simply, from a 300 million pool- and Bengali culture is an old one & very rich, especially in religious philosophy and visual arts- one can “extract” more qualified people for almost all jobs than from a reservoir of 5 million Danes.

            In plain English- US universities should serve to school US population (at least 80%)- and not the entire world.

            Bon,
             
            Whites in the United States are not going to be exterminated, or even displaced. What is happening is that our economy is evolving in ways that reward the most intelligent while punishing everyone else. 
             
            As I have pointed out in the past, immigration continues because most Americans either want it to, or do not have strong feelings on the topic. 
             
            The United States is after all, “a nation of immigrants.” I suspect that many who post here do not have any ancestors who were here before the U.S. Constitution was signed.

        Aren’t educational resources, K through Ph.D., being directed away from   most of the white population? Do you say they’re not?

        • JohnEngelman

          Oriental children do not receive more educational resources than white children. Their parents pay taxes.

    Whites need to learn to be more confrontational when it’s necessary.

    • Whites ARE confrontational, but not stupid. OK, I’m not talking about US, but haven’t you seen various Europe’s soccer  hordes ? In the US, the main problem is in the judiciary and media. In the UK you even can’t cut down a burglar- it’s against the law.

      Don’t worry, we’ll be super-confrontational WHEN we’re not castrated by law, police, prosecutors, media, …. There lies the main obstacle, not in the testosterone level.

  • StivD

    I think somebody desperately wants a Eurasian-American mix for the future… There is way more to character and identity than IQ and conformity.

  • My intention was not to disregard Sino achievements, but to make an observation. 

    Credit the Chinese with gunpowder.

    The story is told that Marco Polo noticed the Chinese were burning a black rock for fuel, which he brought back to Europe. The advent of coal as a fuel source was introduced to Europe, and none too soon. The forests had been nearly depleted. True? I don’t know. It could be the English discovered coal on their own. It would make an interesting study. 

    I have great respect for the Chinese but fear that respect may not succumb to the law of reciprocity once the West succumbs to balkanization.  

  • Note also that East Asians tend to be lactose intolerant. The dairy market in China is dismal.

    Note also that the Ice Man was found to be lactose intolerant, leading researchers to conclude that human consumption of milk is a recent development. 

    That’s not particularly significant, but it does denote a genetic difference that (once again) defies the ‘social construct’ argument.

    Not entirely sure what you’re talking about.
    Is you comment directed at me, or the research in above article, or both?.

  • Many White-other nonblack children look White. It has been discussed here many times, with various stances. Or- if one marries a Mexican (depends which race she is), the child(ren) will look White. Here are some Eurasian examples- some look White, some mixed.

    • I’ll answer to the post below (technically, I can’t do regularly).

      Metaphorically, your position is “Protestant”, and my a “Catholic” one. This distinction is actually more cultural than religious. For Protestantism, the keyword is “purity”. Back to roots, cleanse all alien accretions etc. For Catholicism, the keyword is “assimilation”. Assimilate as much foreign stuff (Paganism etc.) as you can, but WITHOUT changing your essential nature. As I said: I’m not panically afraid of small amount of race mixing IF it didn’t change White phenotype. I prefer dumb Whites to non-Whites of genius.

      Historically, White people are also a mix- Germans have mixed with Asiatic peoples, south Europeans with Arabs and Berbers, and British are a mixture of Germanic, Celtic (who were already mixed in Asia Minor) and Mediterranean “peoples”.

      So- here we disagree. For me, genes are not all. They are very, very important. But I prefer phenotype over genotype, so to speak.

  • There is more to it. They tend to spy-literally- each other & those too friendly towards White devils may encounter ostracism from their compatriots, later, in private.

    That’s why Japanese businesspeople stopped sending individuals, alone, in White countries. Japanese very frequently adopt White “ways” of behavior & need to be constantly under surveillance of their wary countrymen lest they fraternize too much with Whiteys & find hedonistic, more “human”  and individualistic life-styles too appealing.

    I won’t elaborate on the lack of humor …

  • Who cares about the Moon ? Rocket technology is essentially dated & we need something much more propulsive.

  •  Listen- I’ve read the entire Confucian corpus & Confucius is one of my cultural heroes. One of the few strong influences on my world-view. He was the first person to present human personality, with its idiosyncrasies, irony, humanism, righteousness, a sense of  transcendence combined with common sense to the world- and it was before ca. 2500 yrs.
    In my mind, he is more alive than, say, Euripides or Parmenides.

    That said:

    * Confucius was clear about his mission. ” I do not invent, but transmit.” (quot from memory). Confucianism, both idealistic & naturalistic, somehow, due to this prevalence of conservatism, remained the strongest factor in molding China’s tradition of self-sufficiency & ultimately stagnation. They lacked DYNAMISM.

    * abstraction is the keystone of philosophy and science. Greeks had it & they questioned everything- nature of gods, human psychology, politics, metaphysics, ethics, aesthetics, ..they invented sciences, mathematical proof (no other civilization knew about mathematical proof), they mathematized cosmos (Pythagoras), integral calculus (Archimedes),..

    Without abstract thought we wouldn’t have magisterial works of Euclid, Ptolemy, Plato, Aristotle, … We wouldn’t have world-views we can find in ancient Greece:

    * proto-fascism
    * democracy
    * communism
    * feminism
    * materialism
    * skepticism
    * idea of  the “Renaissance man”- this is Plato refurbished
    * physical education
    * universe as the intelligible & comprehensive whole
    * atheism
    * panentheism
    * mathematical mysticism
    * idea of cosmopolitanism
    * idea of abolition of slavery
    * idea of free individual
    * …

    * Chinese simply did not possess cultural atmosphere of expansion, restlessness etc. Greeks- ancient- were heroic & frequently tragic and passionate people. It isn’t for nothing that Chinese keyword is “harmony” (with Dao, nature etc.). Western  way is that of conflict with nature, God or gods. Western way (or “Dao”) is struggle.

    In short- there was no Chinese Prometheus. And this-as a metaphor- has had deep historical consequences.

  •  AmRen is a small step for Internet community, but a giant step for European America.

  • MikeofAges

    Really? And how do upper middle class whites accomplish these aims? Not by sending their children to pestilent pubic schools. Their schools are sometimes virtually all white. Or if not, ostentatiously integrated  with a few high-achieving minority students, but run as white schools.

    What they do is send their children to a year abroad sometimes as early as middle school, and again in college. They have them participate in projects intended to assist disadvantaged Americans, Third World people or some environmental cause. Or they don’t do any of these things at all, and they still go universities and then to graduate and professional schools. And on to lucrative careers. How about the same for the rest us?

  • If you read the original study article it appears this gene difference may be a double- edged sword for whites. For example, it states it may give white cultures a “positive information bias” which is associated with “creative thinking, openess to novelty and risking taking.”

    A positive information bias may be good in some aspects,  but it’s probably bad when it comes to assessing the threats posed by poorly controlled immigration or multiculturalism.

    By contrast, Asians with their “negative thinking bias,” are much better at identifying external threats and putting their own tribe first.

    • That is why I want to make a American warrior hybrid.

      The world will be so screwed up by all the NAMS, and competition from the Communist Chinese, that an evolution  towards the Eurasian race may be of benefit.  

  • ATBOTL wrote, “Would they be just as alive as the tens of millions who died in Mao’s China or under imperial Japanese rule?”

    1) Tens of millions did NOT die under Imperial Japanese rule.
    2) Tens of millions DID die under Mao’s communist rule. And who invented communism? WHITE GUYS!!!

      1.) Check again:  Marx and Engels were not White.

      2.) Murderous Imperial Japan:  During this era, Japan was savagely aggressive throughout East Asia. 

      According to Wikipedia:

      The Japanese military murdered between 3 million and 10 million people.  In China alone 3.9 million civilians were slaughtered by the Japanese military and another 10.9 killed during the course of the war.

      The Imperial Japanese regime was also fond of human experimentation and biological warfare, including vivisections and amputations without anesthesia.

      According to other sources, “tens of thousands, and perhaps as many as 400,000, Chinese died of bubonic plague, cholera, antharax and other diseases…”, resulting from the use of biological warfare. Top officers of Unit 731 were not prosecuted for war crimes after the war, in exchange for turning over the results of their research to the Allies. They were also reportedly given responsible positions in Japan’s pharmaceutical industry, medical schools and health ministry.

    Only because Obama the Great has put the kibosh on all space technology. That has nothing to do with white people

    • Beloved Comrade

      NASA is now headed by a black who was conscripted to begin a new ear by”diversifying” the institution, especially by “reaching out” to “the Moslem World” — on orders from Obama.

      Asian technology is 50 years behind that of whites and what they do have was stolen through internal spying or given to them by the likes of Bill Clinton.

  • If anyone honestly looks at the formation of True Israel, not the Jews or Judeans, they would notice that Abraham was chosen, Ishmael was rejected over Isaac, and Jacob/Israel was chosen over Esau.  Then the sons of Israel were chosen to become nations and or mixed in the nations of Israel such as Levi. 

    Joseph and his sons Ephraim and Manassah were chosen to receive the blessings promised to Abraham of The Great Nations of the World which brings us to the United States and the British People.
    This was all genetic and we have the laws inside of us or “written in their hearts.”

    Most disagree with this but an honest study will prove this is true and that we are, and will be a blessing to the other nations.  However this is being fought and slandered as rascists.  One website calls us “mentally ill”.  Many or most Christians look at us as heritics and liars.
    That is easily understood because most people do not like having their preconcieved views unsettled.

  • Beloved Comrade

    re:John Engleman-“The United States is after all, “a nation of immigrants.” I suspect that many who post here do not have any ancestors who were here before the U.S. Constitution was signed. ”

    There was no nation to immigrate to until whites created it.

    Also, The Daily Mail reported last week that  the first Americans were stone-age Europeans, according to recent archeological evidence. It was in the papers recently but John Engelman didn’t get the memo.

    These Europeans, who were the first people on the continent, ended up getting massacred by the Asians (“native” Americans to leftsts) that crossed into America 10,000 years later.

    But even if the American Indians were the “first” people here it wouldn’t matter, because John completely missed Bardan’s point, like a typical dumb liberal.

  • anonymous_amren

    It is a scientifically established fact. And some of us white people like studying science. If you don’t like science, and want to complain about how IQ tests must be biased whenever they don’t show you on top, I suggest you move to Africa or Haiti where those views fit in.

    I’m not endorsing miscegination or replacing white people with smarter non-whites (except perhaps Ashkenazi Jews). But we do need to recognise reality. White people are subjectively better in every way, but only objectively better in most ways.
