A Gatekeeper Discovers IQ

Just as they’ve recently done with Christian Nationalism, the gatekeepers of the Right are beginning to discover that immigration affects IQ, and consequently, the shape of society.

The flow of people from the south into America is having a clear impact on IQ. The claim is that the people coming in will get smarter by standing on the better dirt in the United States, but it will take four or five generations for that to happen. That is roughly a century. While that is happening, the population of low IQ people rises. This is happening rather quickly due to the age distribution of the white population.

For example, using government data, whites have an average IQ of 100, blacks are at 85 and the new people are around 90. This is consistent with what Richwine found in his research and what subsequent research has shown. This is one of those times when the official government position mirrors reality. That means that the average IQ in the United States in 1950 was around 98. By 1980, with the uptick in immigration and decline in white fertility, the average was just over 97.

In other words, with very stable demographics and little immigration, the average IQ in the United States had not changed very much in thirty years. This would explain why the country was able to pull out of the cultural lunacy of the prior decades and turn things around so quickly. There were a lot of smart people. Societies with high average intelligence also have a much larger number of smart people. These are the people who solve the problems made by other smart people.

By 2000, the effects of immigration were showing up in the test scores. The average IQ of the country, based on the new demographic mix, was below 97. By 2020 the average had fallen to below 96. In another decade it will fall below 95 and when the white population is a minority, it will be around 93.

Now, you might wonder about the strange reference to “the better dirt in the United States”. Or, perhaps, the way in which it appears to avoid the use of the more common term “the Magic Dirt” as well as any reference to the specific individual who has been pointing this out for some time. Consider the following passage from a book published seven years ago.

Without question the worst effect caused by 50 years of failure, and the one most likely to have the most severe long-term consequences, is the negative effect immigration has had on the collective national intelligence. Researchers around the world have observed that the nations of the West have been gradually becoming less intelligent; the Danish military measured a 1.5 point decline in the average IQ of its soldiers between 1998 and 2014, while the average British 14-year-old lost two IQ points from 1980 to 2008. The same is true for the USA, where a three-point average IQ gain that took place after the Melting Pot migration ended has been entirely reversed as a result of immigration from lower-IQ nations.

By multiplying the average measured IQs for the four major ethnic groups in the United States with their changing demographic ratios, we can calculate how the demographic changes have affected the national intelligence over time. In 1960, we calculate the national IQ average to have been 100.3. By 2010, the average national IQ had fallen four points, to 96. By 2030, if the current population estimates are correct, it will fall another point, to 95. Lest you think that average national intelligence is irrelevant, note that just that four-point difference is essentially equal to the difference between countries such as Austria, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom, and countries such as Uruguay and Portugal. There is a strong correlation between societal wealth and average national intelligence as measured in IQ.

Even the left-wing British paper, the Guardian, was recently forced to take note of this phenomenon, as it reported that scientists have determined genes influence academic ability across all subjects, and that as much as 60 percent of the observed differences between various population groups can be explained by genetic factors. So, the mass migration of the last 50 years has been materially dysgenic and has literally made Americans stupider on average. It’s not just you, mass entertainment really has been dumbed down in recent decades in order to appeal to what is an even lower common denominator than before.

Whatever one thinks of these changes, this is one of the fastest demographic transformations of a nation in recorded human history, and it is the direct result of public policy.

CUCKSERVATIVE by Vox Day and John Red Eagle, 4 December 2015

What I find significant about the Z-man’s post is that even mediocrities who assiduously refuse to mention me except to attempt to minimize my hypothetical influence are now being forced by events to address the issues that I’ve been highlighting for more than 20 years, because the observable reality can no longer be ignored.

Now, I don’t take the Z-man seriously and neither should you. I stopped reading him regularly once it became clear that he is a confirmed liar who doesn’t hesitate to try to shape his readers’ opinions despite his complete ignorance of the facts. His gatekeeping role can be seen clearly in the way he follows the lead of the Daily Wire with regards to certain unmentionables who must not be mentioned for fear that his readers might become tempted to leave the intellectual corral he has constructed.

On that note, it’s rather amusing how, in a discussion of various concepts that will be familiar to you even without being named, most of those involved are less willing than Jordan Peterson to Name the Voldemort.

  • There is a certain blogger who has a very outsized opinion of his intelligence. I used to think he was exaggerating somewhat when he said that we could have diversity or we could have running water. No longer do I think he is exaggerating. Nothing explains the way our world runs and has developed the way IQ does. it is the one element of social science that has been battle-tested and still stands. The liberal intelligentsia spent decades trying to disprove it, innate intelligence, and genetically-derived abilities of a population. It sure seems like their final stab at it was Jared Diamond’s stupid book, but once that failed, they just banned it.
  • Said blogger does tend to be self aggrandizing, but that does not automatically make his conclusions wrong. He has been proven correct, in my opinion, in a number of areas.
  • His main point of hubris was that taxonomy of male archetypes. The taxonomy itself is self-evident even without the greek letters: you’ve got jocks, jocks-in-waiting, nerds, normies, and losers. Then our friend realized he was a nerd so he had to add an extra category of “cool nerd who everybody likes even though he’s a jerk” which only exists in TV shows written by narcissistic nerds like Rick and Morty or House MD.
  • The disdain people in the dissident right have of him is a reflection of some of the flaws of the DR. He is one of the few people making headway in the culture war. They sperg out about his quirks and his comics. Those comics are reaching a lot of people. Like it or not, comic books are a good way to reach young people.
  • That blogger has been pretty prescient lately and I’ve come around to agreeing with many of his conclusions about China.

It’s even more amusing to see how they cling to their assumptions even as they cite the evidence against them. But in fairness, once formed, assumptions are hard to recognize, let alone break. As for “the disdain people in the dissident right” harbor for me, well, the dissident right is welcome to join the very long line. Pretty much every group from CAIR and the ADL and SFWA and ComicsGate and Tor Books and Thomas Nelson and the Sad Puppies and the conservative media and the Red Cross and the Google executives and the Swiss media share that disdain. Boo-freaking-hoo.

None of them need me and I certainly don’t need them. All that matters is that everyone who attempts to shape, spin, and shade the truth will be exposed by the harsh light of reality in the end, myself included.

UPDATE: It’s been pointed out to me that the Z-man has been pulling this gatekeeping stuff for a LONG time.

Steve Sailer has been having a lot of fun with the cooing over Raj Chetty’s big project, pointing out the many methodological flaws. In John Derbyshire’s latest transmission from the bunker, he introduces us to a new term that describes what Sailer has been discussing. It is called “Magic Dirt Theory.” The dirt in places like Utah where children do very well possess special qualities that are lacking in the dirt of places where children do poorly. Magic Dirt Theory is what’s behind the push to export troublesome populations out to the suburbs.

NB: Observant minds will note my error in the last sentence of the quoted passage. I should not have used the term “nation”, but rather “polity” or “society”. It is the US polity that has been transformed while the American nation has been suppressed.

Third-World USA

I fail to see how this is surprising in any way. The USA has endured the largest invasion in human history by a population that is considerably less intelligent and less civilized than its native population. So, naturally, the society has been shaped, and is continuing to be further shaped, by the present inhabitants.

The US is falling behind its developed-nation peers in checking the boxes of progress, according to a recent report from the United Nations Office of Sustainable Development. The country that last year ranked 32nd out of 193 UN member states has dropped 11 places in a single year and now trails even Ukraine and Cuba on the list, coming in just head of Bulgaria.

The ratings are based on a country’s progress in fulfilling the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, 17 metrics meant to epitomize societal progress. They include concrete achievements like “clean water and sanitation” and “zero hunger” alongside less defined aims like “quality education” and “responsible consumption and production,” but all are described on the UN’s website as critical to implementing the organization’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – something all member nations have agreed to do.

Scandinavian countries lead the UN’s rankings for 2022, with Finland at number one and Denmark, Sweden and Norway rounding out the top four. The first non-European country to make the list is Japan, which narrowly made the top 20 at 19.

The dirt is not magic. It never was. The fact that the criteria are ideological and inimical doesn’t change the fact that by every meaningful standard, the USA is worse off than it was 50 years ago. Which means it probably will not even be around 50 years from now. Or, as I have previously predicted, 20 years from now.

This is what happens when you don’t sink the ships.

The Inevitable End of Empire

The English have been displaced in the very capital from which the Empire on which the Sun never set was ruled.

ITEM: Liz Truss is preparing to appoint the first cabinet in history in which none of the great offices of state will be held by a white man. After weeks of preparation while enjoying commanding poll leads, Truss is now close to finalising her top team.

ITEM: Indians – led by those who have lived in the UK for generations, NRIs, investors living elsewhere, students and families traveling to the UK for education – are the largest group of landowners in London, followed by the English and Pakistanis.

How, one wonders, are they “Indians” if they have been living in the UK for generations? Are they not simply English, as English as any Anglo-Saxon whose ancestors have been? Even when they simply relate the facts, the globalists expose their previous lies.

It always amuses me when the governments wax on about the importance of their citizens abroad, while simultaneously insisting that the foreigners resident in their country are every bit as native as the natives who are living elsewhere. It’s not merely nonsensical, it’s intrinsically oxymoronic.

A man cannot choose two masters. And empires fall because the colonized eventually become the rulers.

The USA succeeded England as the seat of the Empire That Never Ends. And it is following in England’s path; it is destined to be ruled by women and foreigners before the final collapse.

Mailvox: Dyscivilizationation

Lest you thought I was kidding, or exaggerating, about indoor plumbing being one of the aspects of Western Civilization that is at risk in post-American America, I received this email from a reader yesterday.

Looks like you were right re: “As I have repeatedly warned you, we’ll be fortunate if we emerge on the other end of this civilizational catastrophe with interior plumbing.”

Gov Tate Reeves on the Jackson Mississippi water crisis this past Monday:

“Jackson’s main water treatment facility has been operating with zero redundancies,” and that damage to the main pump had left the city operating far weaker backup pumps….The city cannot produce enough water to fight fires, to reliably flush toilets, and to meet other critical needs”

Well that was quick.

One of the reasons I don’t provide time estimates anymore is because it has proved nearly impossible to correctly nail down the timing of future events. Even the 2008 crisis took six years to show up after I first saw it on the horizon. But my predictions are usually quite reliable with regards to the nature of the events themselves, because historical trends are reliable and the foundational assumptions of those who changed the demographic makeup of the United States were absolutely and utterly wrong.

The end result of diversity, inclusion, and equality is inevitably going to be everyone except the well-connected elite living in third world squalor, because diversity is totally incapable of maintaining, let alone constructing, functional systems with running water. See: every third world country.

If you import third world populations, your society will eventually become third world, because infrastructure collapse. This is the process henceforth to be known as dyscivilizationation.

Apex Predators, Unleashed

There is going to be a lot of this sort of thing happening around Western Europe, the UK, and the USA:

A British father-of-two has dumped his partner after falling for a 22-year-old Ukrainian refugee who came to live with them to escape the war. Tony Garnett, 29, and his partner Lorna, 28, took in Sofiia Karkadym at the start of May, but just 10 days later their seemingly-happy marriage was torn apart when the he ran away with the refugee.

The security guard, who lives in Bradford, West Yorkshire, says he has fallen in love with the 22-year-old and wants to spend the rest of his life with her.

Sofiia, who fled the city of Lviv in western Ukraine, said she ‘fancied’ Tony as soon as she saw him and that the pair are living their very own ‘love story’. Admitting the pain this will cause Lorna, Tony said he has ‘discovered a connection with Sofiia like I’ve never had before’, adding that they ‘know this is right’.

The family had taken Sofiia in in an effort to do their bit to help Ukrainian’s fleeing the Russian invasion, with Tony telling The Sun he ‘wanted to do the right thing’ and that she was the first person to get in touch on a Facebook page where he offered to house a refugee.

This is about as totally unexpected as the rampant immigrant rapes in Scandinavia and Germany. Ukrainian women are famously mercenary; even Russian women find their cold ruthlessness to be a little on the extreme side. And a Ukrainian refugee without a home or employment prospects is going to value a stable man with a job considerably more highly than the average Western woman, which sets the stage for a series of considerably unfair competitions.

The lesson, as always, is this: sink the ships.

Holy Nationalism

The Dalai Lama approves of European nationalism, saying “I weep for what they have lost”.

The Dalai Lama has sparked controversy after he once again defended White nationalism. The elderly monk agreed with the statement that, “white people have a right to exist in their own countries.” Explaining himself, he stated, “I do not think a world without white people would be complete. We should celebrate the whole world’s diversity and that of course means nations being their own. I do not think a France without the French would be a good thing, but completely the opposite. I love all people.”

Going on, he stated that, “I can understand the sadness and despair of Europeans and Americans who worry about losing their countries. Immigrants should return to their own countries, especially those who are from safe places. When I travel to Berlin, I wonder, where are the Germans? I weep for what they have lost.”

“People should, of course, be in friendship and harmony, but there is a saying. Good neighborhoods have good fencing. I think there would be much less hatred on Earth if we respected each other’s nations much more. I have become much more convinced of this as I grow older. I do not think that mixing is always a good thing. We can learn from each other without becoming one another.”

When asked if he thought immigrants should be expelled, the Dalai Lama explained that, in his view, “They should go home on their own accord because it is a good thing to do, if your country is safe. However, if they refuse to leave, I would understand if there was some compulsion.”

Big hitter, the Lama. And he’s absolutely right. It makes the Churchian dogma all the more obviously fake and evil when the virtuous pagans put their false teachings to shame.

A Refusal to Cooperate

Roosh explains why he is the peasant revolt:

It wasn’t supposed to happen this way. I’m not supposed to be sharing the truth with you. They had a specific plan for me, but I figured out what it was and revolted against it. They punished me to get me back in line, but I will never follow them. They aren’t yet sure what to do with people like me who go against their will to expose their schemes and their lawlessness. My existence is proof that things are not going well for them.

In 1965, a certain demographic in America agitated for a looser immigration law. Historically, most immigrants came from Christian Europe, but the law changed, opening the borders to anybody, including the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America. My father was one of the first to benefit from this new law. He immigrated from Iran before the revolution on a student visa. Not long after, my mom immigrated with her entire family from Turkey (she’s Armenian), and additional family members came after that. They liked America. It’s easier, safer, more comfortable, and there’s more freedom. I expect both of my parents to remain in this country for the rest of their lives.

The plan of the regime was simple: culturally sterilize the white population, their greatest threat to power (as clearly evidenced by the recent Canadian truckers’ protest), and replace them with atomized non-European people who will obey any directive to come and reside in the United States to enjoy its first-world comforts. Through the pursuit of their material self-interests, my parents unknowingly consented to this plan. They had two children who were supposed to accept without question the prime directives of the regime: consumerism, comfort, casual sex. Their son abided by this plan and exceeded it to a foul degree. He injected the sexual revolution with the addition of steroids, spreading degeneracy around the Western world and unknowingly aiding the depopulation agenda through the fulfillment of his carnal desires. He was supposed to be a rootless Cosmopolitan who supports abortion and foments grievances against America for being racist against non-whites. He was supposed to feed the divide-and-conquer plan of men versus women so they would never pairbond and create families. He was supposed to be an obedient corporate worker, a mindless consumer, an enjoyer of soybean oil. He was supposed to do all this for the remainder of his life, to be a mere peasant who survives day to day with the aid of entertainment, industrial food, credit, pornography, and normalized passions sponsored by the elite. Some of this he did, and some he didn’t, but something happened along the way.

The reason inversion is ultimately futile, even when it has been successfully implemented by “a certain demographic”, is that one can only war against truth, reality, and God for so long before everything collapses in flames.

All Multicultural Societies are Doomed

The French intelligence officer is not wrong. Except the coming wars across the West will not be “civil wars” in any sense of the term.

Former French intelligence chief Pierre Brochand warns that unless Europe and France radically change their policies on mass immigration, civil war could break out, asserting, “all multicultural societies are doomed.”

Brochand, who served as director of the French DGSE from 2002 to 2008, made the comments during an interview with French newspaper Le Figaro. “All ‘multicultural’ societies are doomed to more or less deep rifts,” warned Brochand, adding, “In such a situation, it happens that minorities are violent winners, and majorities placid losers.”

The negative impact of mass immigration on France can no longer be dismissed because it is “increasingly difficult to prevent the French from seeing what they see,” and also because “a breakthrough personality has suddenly appeared in the formulaic world of politics that has encouraged them to open their eyes,” said Brochand.

The ex-intel chief predicts that if Emmanuel Macron wins the presidential election and fails to massively alter his approach to immigration, civil war could ensue. “This gradual upheaval of the French population, if not the only challenge we face, is the only one that directly threatens civil peace on our territory,” said Brochand, warning that Muslim migrants and others from outside of Europe have developed a “spirit of post-colonial revenge.”

Meanwhile, the native tolerance has gradually turned to dislike. More and more former moderates are becoming quiet, but angry extremists, and the harsh controls on social media preventing the opposition from speaking out against the invasions are only causing the social pressure to build. So, when it starts, wherever it starts, be sure to remember that it was those who welcomed the invaders and encouraged the invasions who are entirely to blame for the inevitable conflict.

The sooner the repatriations begin, the less violent the wars will be. The longer the current situation persists, the worse they will be. History is a harsh, but prescient teacher.

Most homogeneous societies were once heterogeneous. Until they weren’t.

You ARE a Third World Country

The governor of California belatedly recognizes the befouled state of the Once-Golden State:

State Gov. Gavin Newsom found himself in disbelief at the recent images of Los Angeles’ train tracks littered with looted packages, asking reporters, “What the hell is going on?”

“We look like a third-world country,” he exclaimed.

The transformation of the Golden State to Third World Stankistan should be no more surprising than its preceding transition from a barren wasteland. It’s the population, stupid!

European people live one way. People of Asian, African, Iranian, and every other variety prefer to live in other ways, as is their prerogative. The lower the percentage of Europeans in the mix, the less European the society. The lower the percentage of high-trust individuals, the lower-trust the society.

This concept isn’t rocket science, although to a lot of non-European peoples, it might as well be.
