“human biodiversity” watch

it’s nice to see the phrase “human biodiversity” pop up in unexpected places (i.e. not the hbd-o-sphere). here it is in slate (via steve sailer):

“Charles Murray Whiffs on Asians”

“The grand master of the Bell Curve is used to liberals pointing and sputtering at his conclusions. He typically pre-empts this by burying them with research — research they, the sort of people who believe that human evolution happened but that human biodiversity is a myth, sure have not done….”

there it is! used just like it was an everyday, ordinary phrase. i like that! (^_^)

still got a ways to go on google ngrams, though (click on chart for LARGER view):

  1. @ihtg – “Young Mr. Weigel is clearly flirting with The Dark Side.”

    there are more people out there than you think who want to join the dark side…

  2. How does recognizing human biodiversity as an established scientific fact, let us assume by everybody, all of whom abandon their liberal political correctness beliefs, much change anything in the American political and social reality? The demographic character of the US of today is radically different (and inferior in all regards) to that of the recent past. Its a more crowded world with less attractive people. What great practical difference would it make now, if hbd doctrine replaced liberal doctrine?

    perhaps a good portion of the citizenry would then be interested in (a kind and gentle) repatriation of our most recent immigrants? (a girl can dream, can’t she?)

    It would help us design better social policy. I myself am personally committed to the greatest happiness of the greatest number principle, and I believe that every person’s happiness should be equally important in so far as public policy is concerned, irrespective of differences intelligence, looks, and other biological traits. I do believe all people are equally sentient in the sense that a bite of food will taste as good to a starving man no matter his genetic profile, or, more generally, that a dollar will always be worth more to a poor man than a rich one. To me this is axiomatic: it is what moral equality means. To this end we could avoid wasting money by attempting the impossible — in education outcomes for example — and instead concentrate on things that would matter: vocational training, wage subsidies, better consumer protection, etc.

  5. Correction: I should have said every citizen’s happiness is equally important, not every person’s. I do believe in countries. (I also believe that with free trade and free mobility of capital instead of free mobility of labor the whole world’s welfare can be maximized with appropriate public policies in the countries involved.)

  6. Though in the cases of countries like Haiti and Africa I think a voluntary migration of human capital from areas of high concentration would be necessary to bring about economic prosperity. Private corporations could bring along their own administrative personnel, for example. They need not be permanent immigrants necessarily though obviously that would help over time.

    yes. good example. quit trying to get everyone in the country into college ’cause they don’t all belong there.

    also, if everyone would just acknowledge that african americans, for whatever reasons, seem to have a lower average iq than other groups — a problem that doesn’t seem to be going away — AND if we were to adopt just a bit of steve sailer’s “citizenism” — then policy makers would (or ought to) think twice about importing tons of low-skilled workers who are in direct competition for jobs with african americans. frankly, this is one of the points of hispanic mass immigration that bugs me the most — right after white americans losing their country ’cause of the demographic shift. this is really, really rotten treatment of some of our fellow citizens — and, yes, african american so-called leaders are majorly to blame for this, too.

    IMHO there’s:

    1) stopping current low-qual immigration
    2) reversing recent low-qual immigration
    3) repairing long-term low-qual immigration

    But IMHO this all (except perhaps 1)) is small potatoes next to:

    4) Provide us with the moral and intellectual framework to treat the current aliens the way we treat gypsies and Irish travellers: with due caution, and without guilt and persecution for our mistrust.

    IMHO, 4) would simply and effectively reverse the lions share of the damage. Gypsies and travellers are largely powerless to hurt us! And doubly so if the police are allowed to police them effectively. And triply so if their ethnicity made them even more easily recognizable than gypsies or travelers. Of course, 4) goes hand in hand with the same metrics by which the “nice” aliens can be given opportunity to gain due credit (psychometrics, for example), and not be treated with undue caution.

    IMHO, the key to keep in mind is that the only reason for what is going on is that white people are convinced that they should not only go along with it, but actively help it, for whatever reasons. It’s like the Milgram experiment. Once the legitimacy cracks, the spell fizzles.

  9. avoid wasting money by attempting the impossible — in education outcomes for example Exactly – and this goes for whites too! If the system were set up with an acceptance of the ugly truth that a large portion of education is nothing but “sorting”, that would have rippling action potential across on a wide range of connected ideas. And HBD is naught but another side of this same, ugly truth.

  10. Well said, Naga.

    HBD will serve the behaviors which we idealize in all peoples, and gattaca will erase the scientific validity of race by the time we’re type 1.
