Freakasaurus

By Kinist/Alt Right logic, I should feel more in common with this freakasaurus than normal minorities because we're both white. But somehow I just can't muster the requisite sense of affinity.

  1. Steve, you as a white male are not nearly so oppressed as this poor soul. Check out this item on "intersectionality" -- you can tell where you really stand as a highly literate heterosexual white male of European origin:

    And here is the dumbed-down explanation by Ben Shapiro:

  2. A mentally ill person is not an argument against the so called "alt-right". They are an individual and the arguments are about the reality of IQ and Race and its effect on the socio-political well being of a nation.

    1. The point of the comparison is whether a normal white male has more fundamentally in common with a white drag queen (queer/or trans) by virtue of shared ethnicity, than with normal minority male (e.g. Francis Chan, Voddie Baucham, Michael Nazir-Ali).

    "A mentally ill person is not an argument against the so called "alt-right". They are an individual and the arguments are about the reality of IQ and Race and its effect on the socio-political well being of a nation."

    As far as this goes, I don't see how "the socio-political well being of a nation" is necessarily better served by having a people with a higher IQ. It's not as if intelligent people make better decisions for the nation. Some of the smartest people make some of the dumbest decisions.

    1. Its about averages, you get that right? Because otherwise you are purposefully being obtuse. A great book on this is Garrett Jones's "Hive Mind:How Your Nation’s IQ Matters So Much More Than Your Own" (2016, Stanford University Press). Basically, it is better, across the board to live in Japan (Avg IQ of 105) than say, well the United States (98) or on the farther end of course Haiti (67). If you look at this list https://iq-research.info/en/average-iq-by-country it will show you that the higher average IQ the better developed the nation, lower crime rate, etc.

      Off come the gloves! I guess the time for respectful dialogue is over. It didn't take long for Martin Marprelate to become belligerent.

      According to the website you've cited, Hong Kong and Singapore are the "nations" with the highest average IQ. The next four highest are likewise Asian nations: South Korea, Japan, China, and Taiwan. So, according to your logic, one would expect a nation like China or Taiwan to be "better developed" than a European nation like Switzerland. Until recently, that hasn't been the case. And that still isn't the case today outside major regions like the Pearl Delta Valley and municipalities like Shanghai and Taipei. In fact, geographically speaking, most of China is not "better developed" than most of Switzerland. Mongolia also ranks higher than most Western European nations. And who would say Mongolia is "better developed" than Switzerland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, the UK, Canada, etc.?

      As for crime, it's arguable crime is lower in places like Singapore and China, not primarily because of higher IQ or racial homogeneity (Singapore is racially diverse), but primarily because of draconian or authoritarian governments.

    3. "Basically, it is better, across the board to live in Japan (Avg IQ of 105) than say, well the United States (98)"

      This illustrates a problem with "averages". People live in specific locales, not "averages". It might be better for the "average" person (construct?) to live in Japan than the US "on average" (arguendo), but that doesn't necessarily mean it's necessarily any better to live in Shibuya in Tokyo than it is to live in Beverly Hills in Los Angeles. Not to mention, for example, Japan has its own racial and ethnic (xenophobic) issues and rarely grants citizenship to people who weren't born in Japan and who aren't Japanese (at least one parent).

  4. Law enforced insanity, and culturally there's no way back from this. Decent people get called out on Twitter and our government officials bow down to a man in a dress.
