The Ascent of Man: Human Biodiversity & Evolution

Washington Summit, May 29, 2012

Thinkers and researchers in the fields of Human Bio-Diversity and Sociobiology stand at a fault line.

On one side, there is greater knowledge of man’s status as a natural being in an ongoing process of evolution. With the mapping of the human genome, science has achieved a fuller understanding of the deep history of the human races, the components of intelligence, and unities and divisions within mankind. Simply put, we know better how man became who he is.

On the other side, there is social pressure to disregard such breakthroughs and return to increasingly outmoded “Blank Slate” assumptions. The science of man has, much as in previous ages, become “dangerous knowledge” for the political, educational, and media elite. And at a moment when the study of Bio-Diversity has more to say about society than ever before—and could be used for much good—it is treated as heresy for its contradiction of the principle that all men are created equal, and thus interchangeable and malleable.

This fault line reveals much, not only about popular assumptions and illusions but also about a more fundamental division within the human experience.

On June 21-24, 2012, Washington Summit Publishers will host a gathering in Seattle, Washington, to discuss the future of the study of Human Bio-Diversity. Participants will come from academia as well as the budding “HBD” blogosphere.

The conference will take place in an intimate atmosphere of free and lively conversation; it will include talks, panels, as well as an excursion to the Seattle Waterfront. Registration is strictly limited.

    Possibly the most important event of the Civil Rights era.

    The scientific method is man’s greatest achievement, and it’s adoption put (especially northern) Europe ahead of the whole rest of humanity.

    Then someone decided we should ignore it and pretend that any demographically-correlated difference in achievement was our fault.  And created the Democratic version of Lysenkoism.  We have to re-take the high ground.

    •  Proving Facts is racist and by extension so is the scientific method. 

      • Church_of_Jed

        “Euclid, Galileo, and Newton were so racist, they wouldn’t surrender their White privilege so that more deserving minorities could make the discoveries to which social injustice and the pain of history entitled them.  Erecting barriers against Diversity achievement and leadership instigates obsenely irresponsible White attitudes about blacks.  Self fulfiling White privilege, i.e. Whites seeing other Whites do magnificant things in science, creates a disparate impact on the beloved community of color and perpetuates systemic bias and institutional racism.”

        -Rev. Jed DeValleyism, “The gibbersish I heard at the Pan African Empowerment Conference, a/k/a the Voodoo Holiness Temple InGathering,” 2000

        •  See Jed what you are forgetting here is that Newtonian Physics and the idea of a heliocentric universe are NOT European discoveries at all, but rather the STOLEN works of the great afican scientists and witch doctors who produced space age civilizations that were some how defeated by White men with blunderbusses.

          • Church_of_Jed

            I’m forgetting everything because I’m traumatized by what our White youth is doing to itself with drugs. They are turning themselves into n’groes.

            But maybe their spirits are telling them that there is not hope in their post White privilege futures, so might as well enjoy the now, no matter the cost, because the cost now won’t be as high as the horrors then.

            Take a look and multiply by millions. We are unfitting ourselves for nothing but slavery to LaRaza, Sharia, Mao, and Holder 2016.

            I think it stems from the breakdown of the family and also with no one staying at home to raise the children anymore. Plus the media pushing the thug culture in clothes, music etc… but if you have a strong family with (and I’m prejudice here) a stay at home mom you can keep those white boys out of trouble!

            My dear Reverend, 

            I came across this chilling summary of our CURRENT WHITE SLAVERY.  It is from “thosewhocansee.blogspot.com”, by far the best compiler of statistics showing the blunder racial egalitarianism had led mankind too.

            I found this black “racist” website and it said something like the white man gets his power/ego from the lie that he invented everything. Which we all know isn’t true. I’ve always believed it to be true. How is it even disputed? Like another poster said regarding blacks NOT using L.S.D. “blacks are NOT experimenters”>

      • JohnEngelman

        When someone calls me a racist I ask, “What did I say that is not true?”
         
        Instead of answering he yells, “Racist!” louder. 

        • Church_of_Jed

          You should say, “What did I see that turned me into a racist?”

        • Detroit_WASP

          When they scream “racist”

          You should reply, “you say that as if it’s a bad thing”

          I am so past being called a racsist.  I was literally ran out of every neighborhood I ever lived in….in Detroit.  You’d have to be an idiot to not notice who was doing all the robbing, raping and burning. 

          I guess having eyes and an IQ above room temperature dictates that you become a racist.  

          • JohnEngelman

            The typical upper middle class white liberal intellectual has had contact with few blacks. Those few are exceptional, or they occupy subordinate positions without resentment. 
             
            In order to understand what blacks are really like one needs to interact with them on terms of approximate equality in environments where they are in the clear majority. 
             
            A lot of them are decent of course. The problem is that a lot of them are not. 

        • alastairabbacle

          Here is what to say: 

          Don’t racists dislike Blacks because of their violent, criminal, and uneducated behavior?

          Would not the racists wish Blacks NOT to be violent, criminal and uneducated?

          Seriously, there is no round-table of old white men who WANT violent, uneducated countrymen.    If anything, what you call “RACISTS” only want the Black race to be better.

          • mikejones91

            Wow, thanks for posting that link. We used to want them to be better, but then we realized that just would NOT happen. So we came to realism. The old cause of racism, under-exposure/xenophobia. The new cause of racism, over-exposure.

      Good connection! :  http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Lysenkoism
      “Lysenkoism, named for Russian botanist Trofim Lysenko, was a political doctrine in Joseph Stalin’s Soviet Union that mandated that all biological research conducted in the USSR conform to a modified Lamarckian evolutionary theory. The underlying appeal was that it promised a biology based on a plastic view of life that was consistent with the plastic view of human nature insisted upon by Marxist-Leninist dogma.Lysenko was, though a thorough crank, a political favorite of Stalin who promised great advances in the Soviets’ agricultural system by breeding plants based on characteristics acquired from drastic alterations of their environments. ”

      Here is the key, for what may happen to us:
      “Lamarckism (the idea that offspring inherit traits their parents acquired in their lifetimes) provided a more politically correct view in the eyes of Stalin, who felt (as had many Lamarckian holdouts) that Darwinian/Mendelian biology rendered life unacceptably deterministic.[1]
      The Lysenkoists employed Stalinist terror in their struggle with Darwinian biologists for bureaucratic and academic positions. Anti-Lysenkoists faced the threat of public denunciation, loss of communist party membership, loss of employment position and arrest by the secret police. Between Lysenko’s grip on power and the “disappearances” of numerous of his opponents, it would be years until the Soviet biology program would recover.”

      The USSA now has a Communist, Lysenkoist view of “minorities”.
      The kommisars say: “If we only change their environments, Blacks and Hispanics are sure to improve.”

      • Kurt Plummer

        Lysenko was a nutjob who stated that if all environmental norms were the same, the outcome could be made equally providential.  Which is only a way of admitting that wheat in the Russian Steppe is _not_ going to get the same quality water/sun/soil/chemicals as that in Kansas.

        And as far as it goes, I agree.  Because, in the long term, environment _does predict_ for genes.  How can it not?

        The problem is that humans have such long generational intervals that what we cannot be compared to agricultural foodstuffs.

        Indeed, what we did 50,000 years ago is still with us today.  L1/2 (Black) vs. L3 (then M/N as Asian and White) gene groups hopped the Red Sea into Saudi and from there into India.  Whether because we were ‘experimenters’ or simply in the right place at the right time to avoid the mess of neanderthal dominance around the Mediterranean/Asia Minor doesn’t matter.

        Period Europe (when we got there, another 10KYA+ down the river) was an icey wasteland that required a lot of planning to work around a basically glacial environment it taught us to plan our breeding and probably inbred us so that only those who did not succumb to deleterious recessives survived.  To our isolated and far removed peoples, it was an _environmental_ selector in it’s own right.

        But it became the kind of place which became -seasonally- wet and cold.  The wet gives you multiple crop cycles as better nutrition and the cold freezes the bugs and isolates the warriors which made and indeed still -makes- Africa a land whose inhabitants survive solely by a native tendency to breed young and abundantly.  So that their generational interval is short and things like Muller’s Ratchet keeps them ahead of the local disease curve especially.

        Yet Africa is far from the wonderland it is shown as in documentaries.  Indeed, it has a -serious- P4D problem:  Predators, Pathogens, Population Pressure, Drout.  And these conditions have shaped the black man as a separately evolved subspecies of man.  The black of today is NOT some kind of protoform or earlier variant.  He is as evolved as we are.  But the environment which made him what he is is not compatible with modern Western living.

        It can’t be, given that the first thing that happens with early onset puberty (age 8-9) is the loss of fluid and a shift to crystallized intelligence with the onset of massive sex hormones.

        As for Lamarck, there is something to be learned from Mr. ‘Giraffes got long necks by straining to reach higher’ too.  Namely that Epigenetics, the ‘third strand’ which holds the DNA helix together, has some unique and highly adaptive functionality of it’s own.

        The Fox-1 complex, the most rapidly evolving gene in our genome is specifically set to imprint from -developmental- and -lifetime- activities both brain function and gonadal action.  i.e.  It records/accelerates the actions of your brain function choices and makes sure you pass on the benefits of your ‘clean living’ (in a challenging as stimulating environment) to your children.  It is the proof of what Darwin was all about as a measure of Selection.  And it is highly deterministic in the longer term.

        Which is to say that if we unfairly advantage blacks at the expense of whites we unfairly give to them the chance to become like us.  I say unfairly because ‘marriage studies show’ that whites _still_ do not prefer to breed exogamously.  And so what you are really doing is creating a potential to retard our own genetic development in favor of a lesser cousin in the Homo Sapiens family tree and one whose genes for IQ, ‘activated’ or not, are still CENTURIES away from equalling our own.  While their propensity for overbreeding is not.  Africa has just passed one billion in population.  By 2060 they will be at 2.7 billion.  Neither AIDS nor Ebola nor Malaria, which still kills a million every year on the Dark Continent, will stop this.

        We need to be explicitly and unequivacably white racist for this reason alone.

        Because epigenetics has the ability to make reality from potentialism.

        And I do not want to share our society or our genes with the other races of the planet for the simple reason that what makes us, _us_ is not something that other races as subspecies deserve to have simply because they exist.

        The missing links of evolutionary theory live amongst the survivors.  And if you are not cognizant of what this _must_ mean, by reason of exclusion as much as active attack, you do not understand how Darwin and by extension, Nature, really work.

           Thanks for the excellent information.
          Is there more detail about this in any of the non-denialist anthropology books?

    “We are a non bio diverse family. All our skin tones and eye colors are the same, and we like it that way and will fight to keep it that way. We know our bio diverse enemies when we see them and by what they do. Anyone who erects barriers to our White privilege and makes a negative impact on our futures, is our enemy.”

    I am glad to see that Henry Harpending and Gregory Cochran will be attending. Their book, The 10,000 Year Explosion: How Civilization Accelerated Human Evolution is one of the most fascinating books I have ever read. It explains the evolution of racial differences described by Charles Murray in The Bell Curve, and by Professor J. Philippe Rushton in RACE, EVOLUTION,  
    AND BEHAVIOR: A Life History Perspective.

      As I expect, you know that East Asians accept this as a matter of fact.   They were never deceived by “Racial egalitarianism”.     

      Here is the problem:  that same side of the that accepts Black innate propensity to violence, also accepts White innate propensity to creativity. 

      As you saw in Rushton’s book, there is clearly a spectrum, from uncivilized, to “overcivilized”.

      Thus, Asians do not like to think about race vis a vis Whites.  Because then they have an inferiority complex.    Yes they are different, but most professional pursuits require creativity.  

      I fear the future of overqualified, overcompunctous East Asians being the boss over the more creative, but less rule-abiding Whites.   
      Things may get bad in the elite European-asian interaction.  It is already that way, I have some misgivings, even in my Eurasian life, about how this will all play out. 

  • JohnEngelman

    “Anti racist” activists will probably try to prevent this gathering from being held. I hope the police will arrest them quickly, and that they will receive the maximum punishment legally possible. 
     
    Because those on the left cannot explain the growing scientific evidence that supports the relationship between genes, IQ, crime (and race) they try to suppress exposure of the evidence. 

    • Church_of_Jed

      They can explain it:  dangerous discoveries that foster prejudice and hate.

      They can then outlaw it, just like they’ve outlawed you and me on their long march  to post White privilege Amerika.

      This link takes us to the report of the death of a 22 year old student in a car crash. Why? and why “CHEERS”?

      • IstvanIN

        Perhaps because of this:

        “Keegan took on Wall Street recruiters on her college campus last year, served as president of the Yale College Democrats and was a member of Yale Occupy Movement, according the Yale Daily News.”

      • alastairabbacle

        “Keegan took on Wall Street recruiters on her college campus last year, served as president of the Yale College Democrats and was a member of Yale Occupy Movement, according the Yale Daily News.This summer, Keegan had been looking forward to moving to Brooklyn: She had been hired at The New Yorker as an editorial assistant. ”
        On a personal note, I mourn her death.  
        However,
        It is thus that the Liberal media is born.
        Yale to the New Yorker, bullshit grows to corn.

    • So what, there are 10 more young anti-whites itching to replace her.  Her death does not affect the program of white genocide.  It only affects her and her family and friends.

      Dancing on people’s graves is always evil, and here it is both evil and stupid.

  • Athling

    All men are not created equal. Thomas Jefferson is constantly taken out of context by those who misapply his words in the Declaration of Independence. Nor does the Bible say all men are created equal.

    Simple observation of man in his natural environment provides proof that all men are not created equal.

    • alastairabbacle

      What did Jefferson mean?

      • …and endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights…

        Jefferson meant that individuals should be treated the same by the law.  Not that Blacks and whites are the same, but that if a black or a white should try to eat someone’s face, they should receive the same punishment. 

        Fredrick Douglass said,  “What shall we do with the Negro?” I have had but one answer from the beginning. Do nothing with us! Your doing with us has already played the mischief with us. Do nothing with us! If the apples will not remain on the tree of their own strength, if they are wormeaten at the core, if they are early ripe and disposed to fall, let them fall! I am not for tying or fastening them on the tree in any way, except by nature’s plan, and if they will not stay there, let them fall. And if the Negro cannot stand on his own legs, let him fall also. All I ask is, give him a chance to stand on his own legs! Let him alone!”

        Martin Luther King said, “…that they may be judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character…”.

        None of these quotes contradict white nationalism.  None of them contradict Jefferson’s point about equality before the law, which was made a mockery of in affirmative action and hate crimes legislation.

        • El_Magyar

          Yes, but will the “fallen apple” be happy with its place? Secondly, what do we do with the apples all over the ground?

            Robots.

            We will, thanks to an abhorrence of genocidal ‘relocation to the East’ policies brought on by WWII (though strangely, not the Trail Of Tears et al), no will to kill or displace to Muscovy those who cannot contribute.

            What we -can- do is feed them and house them ON CONDITION that they have one child each.  This is elective genocide for all that refuse to compete in a _Western_ social model where high IQ and high educational commitment walk hand in hand with a decent, non-menial, job as SES.

            And robotics are how you get beyond needing twenty Mexicans off a truck to unload boxes in the back of a King Soopers so that little Sally and her mommy Sarah can do the week’s grocery shopping while her elder brother Johnny is off playing highschool football rather than working in the back room himself.

            Thermodynamics, Ponzi, and Malthus.  Three terms which, collectively, put the kaibosh on anything having to do with Egalitarianism as code speech for ditch digger wage slavery. 

        • anmpr1

           In the context of the Declaration, Jefferson was writing to the King about mistreatment.  The phrase “all men” is seen in this context as all men subject to the Crown, or English citizens, who were by law equal under the Crown.  Thus, since British policy toward the colonies was not “equal,” or the same as those policies of Britain toward its non-colonial citizens, the colonialists were expressing a civil grievance.  Jefferson was not making a metaphysical comment on man in general.  To think that Jefferson was writing about negroes, or any other peoples is absurd.  In fact, it is doubtful whether Jefferson ever considered blacks as “men” in the same sense as white men.

          At the same time, it is clear that Jefferson was under the spell of the Enlightenment, which was a liberal program, and one that posited men as prior to the civil order (see Hobbes and Locke).  Hence it was anti-tradition.   Although Jefferson still had an idea of natural law and tradition, even if he had not written those words, liberalism would have taken hold eventually for various other reasons.  Only in the South, and then until the tyrant Lincoln, did anti-liberal tradition hold sway.  However all of this is academic, since Jefferson is for the most part now simply a “forgotten” man of history. 

        • alastairabbacle

          Thanks.

          That is a tremendous quote from Frederick Douglass. If only he was taught more in Blacks Schools. I like this “Do nothing with us!”

          ” I am not for tying or fastening them on the tree in any way, except by nature’s plan, and if they will not stay there, let them fall.”

          Anytime one rebels against “nature’s plan” there are nefarious consequences. Our “treatment” in these past couple of decades of the Negro has only made them worse.
          Society, by the 1950’s, had come to an imperfect, but naturally wrought outcome in the coexistence with the Negro. We have torn asunder that natural order.

          Freedom of Association, and the Right to Self-Defense have allowed the savage element of the Negro to grow unchecked. It’s amazing how after a time in White Nationalist postings, you begin to realize that you are a greater friend of the Negro than their supposed friends, the Liberals.

          It is also amazing how your perscriptions for the advancement of peoples begin to align with mainstream conservatism. I genuinely believe that people like Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin know what we know, but are able to avoid the “racism” charge, and thus stay on the air, by only mentioning “the right to self-defense”, and “freedom to live where you choose.” I do think they are too careful though.

          • anarchyst

            “Freedom of association” was taken away from whites by enactment of the so-called “civil rights (for some)” laws . . .

    • Athling

      In his “Declaration of Independence,” Thomas Jefferson was addressing the need to seperate from the rule of Great Britain. It was written to explain to the colonists why this was necessary and while not specifically addressed to the King of England, Jefferson knew King George would read it.

      Jefferson used the phrase “All men are created equal,” to mean that the American colonists did not recognize that the King of England nor any other members of English royalty had the right by birth to rule over them. In that sense all men were created equal.

      In the declaration Jefferson has a long list of grievances against the King. Among them he writes this:

      He [the King of England] has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

      Merciless Indian savages? Does that sound like all men are created equal? Still not convinced? Jefferson also said this about miscegenation with blacks, “When freed, he is to be removed beyond the reach of mixture.”

      Context is everything. Clearly, all men are not created equal as a general proposition as used by MLK and countless others.

      Read the entire declaration here:

      • MikeofAges

         Mr. Jefferson said “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

        Never said all men are equal. Created equal in certain essential matters, which must be respected. But not equal in every matter. Not even identical twins.

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem.

    The problem is that we don’t understand THE CARS.

    “On the other side, there is social pressure to disregard such breakthroughs and return to increasingly outmoded “Blank Slate” assumptions. The science of man has, much as in previous ages, become “dangerous knowledge” for the political, educational, and media elite. ”

    Why would people not want to know the model specification of the cars?  Why would it be bad to  know the ideal handling methods for the different cars?  

    If a RACEcar driver does not understand the internal specifications and handling dynamics of his car, he won’t drive as well.
    Duh.

    • mikejones91

      hahaha beautiful.

    • MikeofAges

       And everyone has to know how to drive their own car. Sometimes it’s called “living within yourself”. Athletes believe in this factor very strongly. They have to know themselves, more than anybody.

      • alastairabbacle

        That’s very true, about athletes and their “design”. I’m sure professional sports coaches do not deceive themselves as to the nature of their Black and White athletes. They know. Isn’t encouraging the Black man not to know his disadvantages a good way to hinder him? And also to hinder all around the already hindered Black man?

        You got to know how something works before you can consistently make it work.
        Whose interest can it possibly serve to blind Blacks to self-knowledge, and overcoming of wrongness and sin?

        See if we make equal pursuit of excellence the goal, rather than equal pursuit of treatment, things can work out a bit better.

        • MikeofAges

           I was thinking more on the individual level, just the issue of knowing what one can do and what one cannot do, and when. People who do not know themselves are often in a lot of trouble.

      QD,
      High School and indeed most of lower education is 18 years of conformity training as institutionalized daycare.
      Young People would be vastly better off if their parents took them to 1-2 classes of about 45-90 minutes each per day and then brought them out into the real world to improve their minds with dynamic stimulus.
      Such a system could include youth labor groups from roughly the age of 12 to help make up shortfalls in agro and other national service areas.  It could also include secondary instruction in sports, drama and art to help focus creativity and/or generate an understanding of social intelligence.
      The Key to understanding youth is that ADULTS have only about two really serious concentration periods of approximately 1hr, per day.  They can parcel that mental concentration out across many mini-moments but we are asking our children to behave like perfect little automatons, sitting in tiny desks for six+ subjects a day and it is destroying their minds through burnout.
      It is very important to note  that many genius level personalities DO NOT begin to even seriously read until they are 6-7 or later.
      What we must do is create a focussed environment which grades things like brain function under load and optimize a routine to make the most of those skill-areas that are there while compensating for shortcomings in other capacities through remedialism.  The best way to get there is to teach skill groups in complete packages rather than the rote spirals with endless backstepping to bring the rest of the children back up to speed after a day spent in social studies, english, math, science and PE classes where they are saturated with knowledge but gain little real application specific understanding of how it is synergistically applied.
      I would also suggest that the -worst- thing you can do is drop a kid out of school for 3 months of summer vacation and expect them to come back as sharp as when they left.
      The navy has a term for this: ‘Bathtub Effect’ (think wrinkled skin).  Wherein you leave the States for a long cruise in top tactical condition and then the effects of ordinary living at sea begin to eat away at your military proficiencies until you are little more than a drooling moron upon return and have to begin the entire training cycle anew.
      We could do so much for our children if we could simply get away from having to remedially teach the nearly retarded among other races and resume a patriarchal employment system which brought mothers home to act as parents while fathers acted as wage earners.  Because 7-8 hours of schooling per day plus 4 hours of expected homework is not doing our youth any good at all.
      If you want to instruct kids, you need to do it with the best means available using electronic not book driven teaching and you need to raise the intensity level while shortening the exposure duration and prolonging the total immersion as a function of days in with fortnight not months long furloughs.

        “Homeschooling” . . .

    I wish Jared attends this event. Not OUR Jared, but Jared Diamond, author of ‘Guns, Germs and Steel’. I think he draws interesting conclusions (that I disagree with, nevertheless) , but there is stuff in that book that actually bolsters the argument for racial differences in intelligence. In other words, the facts are right, but the conclusions are wrong (but they could be solely for political and business reasons, who knows?)

      You need only look at the Star Wars Prequels to see the agenda that is being ‘just doing business’ sold here.  Clones (as artifacts of the same GE that you need to create better people in general) are seen as expendable super soldiers whose capabilities are, somehow, competitive with robotic fighting machines in terms of reaction speed, weight carriage, fatigue rating and of course recoverable attrition through cannibalization.
      Real World, none of the above is true.  Machines win because they can be built faster, trained instantly, recharged by adding fuel or new batteries and replaced using components from exactly similar units, prepared beforehand.

      You use GE to make superior high end intellects because you -don’t- expose your Einsteins and your Rockefellers and your Watsons or your Rembrandts to the threat of a randomly removed leg from a shoe mine.

      Socially, people fear being obsolescent in their owned existence.  Fear being left behind.  But the reality is that this has already happened and it has been done for purely ‘economic’ reasons which are utterly artificial in their drive to disperse industry through slave states of outer swabovia for the cheapest possible manufacturing.  Such is the principle behind Distributionist-Centrist Capitalism.  Money in the Middle, Manufacturing where it’s cheap.  Underclass loses the right to uplift themselves as their means of making a living and then their owned property are removed from them.

      _If you believe in that_ then you must also, necesssarily, believe in it’s corollary.  Which is that, in a society which has rendered itself post-industrial by virtue of greed, only massive improvements in ‘idea creation’ really matter.

      And so th choice becomes whether you will take a risk that your betters will abuse the capability to further the separations in Class (rather like a hive produces endless drones but only a few queens).  Or that they will benefit all of us in a post-profit driven understanding of life as an existential experience that all need the most starting access to, genetically, to reach fulfilment in.

      Greed + Fear = Suicide.  Hope + Trust _in technology_ = A Future For Our Children.

      That future will only come about through improvements in IQ across the board.  We cannot await a Hitlerian ‘Master Race’ solution to this issue to come from the effects of a massive civil war.

      Eugenics as a natural ascension of the fittest by selection will not work in time. 

      Genomics might get’er done.

    The truth is, no matter how much someone like her “takes on Wall Street recruiters” that person remains of the same matter they are. That the same person would go on to try to shed their “white privilege” by trashing less advantaged (though possibly not less talented) individuals of the same descent they are only makes them more of the same matter.

    Would be nice if I could attribute that statement to the evidently fictional Rev. Jed, but, hell, I said it myself. It’s what I’ve lived with all my life for the simple sin of not going to Yale.

    It would be great if you had any links as a basis about this: “Orientals are ruthlessly pursuing the genetic basis of human intelligence and they are having a bit of success at it from what I hear. ”

    I think Orientals would like to be more like Whites. I do think that there is a latent way to trigger their creativity. In time, I actually see them attempting to revitalize the White population of the world, if only to improve the world economy,

    Imagine this: a Chinese-Indian effort directed at increasing the White birth rate, so that they have more customers and employees for their companies.

    We are like the suicidal but successful older brother of the Orientals.

    And they have a 2.4 TFR (kids per mother) in Mexico.  And a 3.2-4.4 TFR here in the States.  And they are better at organizing and more covert in their political aims.  And they have ‘only’ 3-4X the crime rate of whites.  And they still have a 7-10 point IQ differential which means the United States Of Aztlan will look like Mexico (corruption, nepotism, racism, croneyism), not like a 21st Century World Power.

    The hispanics are more dangerous than the negro for the simple reason that they do everything the black does, better, smarter, more effectively.

    For their own cause.  Not ours.

    Whites will be lucky if we make up 4% of the worlds’ population by 2100.  We are self electively choosing suicide as an act of capitalist greed.

    Jared Diamond is an activist not, a scientist. He conveniently over looks 90% of what we know about human and cultural evolution.

    The Chinese deliberately segregate their best and brightest in whole ranges of Gifted programs.

    They also recently (last 5 years) purchased some 4,000 gene sequencing hoods, half to go to an ‘open project’ offer to share expertise in Hong Kong.  Half to go to an undisclosed, classified, facility in China itself.

    DO NOT THINK THAT THESE ARE UNRELATED.

    They are setting themselves up with a high IQ population, mapping out their students specific areas of excellence with the direct expectation of doing hap-mapping through the long sequences (one gene on this chromosome, another over here on this one, accessed at specific developmental point X) to create real genius.

    Add to this the reality of a male-obsessed reproductive bias which is being deliberately ‘one childed’ towards a massive social shortage of fecund women, sometime around 2040 and you are looking a condition wherein the easiest way to generate a rapid replacement system of breeders is to either go exogenic (artificial wombs) or put the carrier bias (for intelligence) as a sex-linked genotype in women.  Which makes sense anyway, given the relative ease of material packing and unpacking within the ovum.

    If, as the Asian perspective in things like the Book of Five Rings alludes, the next wars are to be won in the boardroom, the weapons development strategy has to be in the genetics labs in terms of generating a brains over brawn approach to out-thinking one’s opponents in a post military force world.

    All of which is possible because China is 97% Han Chinese and has -no intention- of changing this.  Whereas the combination of the Reductio Ad Hitlerum and lingering effects of ‘being better socialists than the Communists’ bending over backwards to appease our own population in the 1960s and the ROW thereafter has made the U.S. ethnically weak because our minorities scream at the thought of ‘for whites only’ improvements which take them out of the game altogether.

    They much prefer a society that looks like Mexico, if not Haiti.  And they are too stupid to realize that such places are NOT what makes a high tech, post industrial, information age civilization ‘with all the perks’ of luxury goods and decent standards of healthcare, education and SES.

    Achaean,
    You are likely overthinking this from the ‘merit’ end.
    Asians form around 6% of our population at present.  Yet they are roughly 23% of our collegiate scholars.
    Jews form around 3% of our population and are in the decline due to age out in this country (though many around the world but especially in Israel hold dual citizenship and so the numbers are fluid) and take roughly 25% of college admissions.
    In the mid 1930s, Hitler drastically cut back the number of Jews eligible to go to college from around 9-10% to approximately 1%, their actual, statistical, percentage in the German population at that time.
    Since the Jews have been taking over government, medicine, judicial and academic branches for quite some time, it stands to reason that they would resent competition from another underdog, high-IQ, group for these top tier positions by which policy is steered throughout this country.
    I doubt seriously if Asians have the same attitudes viz a viz the Hispanic, Female and Black A/A threats to dominant white male population percentages participating in American higher education.
    Not that it matters much now.  When we drop to 35% of our own nation’s population, even if it is a much younger average age, we will find that we control even less of our own destiny because of the imbedded racial nepotism of other top tier population groups and the ever more venal gimme-sum attitudes of the downtroddens will overwhelm the residual white male populations ability to assure it’s own place, leaving us with scraps.

    Equal pursuit of excellence is anathema to the class system and the religions which serves it.
    Read the passage in the Bible wherein the Master sets out to travel and leaves his slaves with certain ‘talents’ (Greek measure for gold) by which he expects them to profit considerably (return on investment) before he comes back.  See then also how he is pleased with those who make money, accepts those who do not lose money and despises those who ‘bury their treasure’, never growing
    anything from it.
    This is how capitalists view ‘diversity’ as the equivalent of classes of wealth builders, managers and ditch diggers, even today.  Did we remove the -need- for the underclasses, the rich might have to invent a new justification to exploit us and we would likely be smart enough to see it coming and refuse.
    In this, it is exceptionally important as well to ask whether you want to share the genotypes that gives -us- the leverage to be better than blacks.  Remove one of the principle arguments: that black evolution has rendered them unfit for the rigors of Western Life and you only have ugliness as an aesthetics driven alternative.
    Myself, we so desperately need to raise white baseline IQ to about 125 (thus killing the excessive noblesse oblige of social altruism with the certainty of understanding the reality of limited resources, endless breeding and Malthusian entropy…) that it would be worth it.
    If only to send the African back to Africa where he could mouse the elephant (ruling over the IQ70 population there) and leave us in peace.  But there are risks people.  Discoveries we may not like the looks of when we see the truth of life reflected back at us.  If genocide is not your game then sharing, at the genetic level, must be.   To pass on such traits as reproductive restraint as much as intelligence.  This is just a good way to do it without defiling our women.
    Which brings me to another case point:  You will get the best results, initially, not from gene splicing with retroviral carriers and the like.  But rather with simple controlled developmental sequencing using high strength hormonal treatments.  Do this to a woman and you will kill her with preclampsia and kidney/liver failure.  Do it in an artificial womb and you can fail 3 times out of five and still create someone who is literally ‘the best they can be’ in terms of balanced stimulation of developmental increments causing optimum tissue and organ generation.
    This will also require a LOT of changes in our own instinctive need to reproduce.  It may not be ‘Gattica’ so much as an ‘Above & Beyond’ scenario we are looking at here except that it won’t be the tanks who are rebelling at having their reproductive drives shortchanged.  It will be the humans who are told that they can contribute a gamete but technology will handle the rest.
