Read THIS STORY from the J. Post.
That one just about has it all – failed schools, The Great Hoax, teachers’ union, LGBVPC, the “values,” etc, etc, etc. Even the ownership thing. Wow…
Again, it’s Identity > Culture > Politics. That order. Leading the others, demographics is, as they say, “destiny.” One of the supremely important factors of that destiny, which helps foster culture and politics, is average intelligence. In the USSA and across much of the West, national average IQs are slipping if not collapsing.
Before we enter into the exciting base matter for today’s discussion, I’d once more like to plug the near-definitive At Our Wits’ End by Dutton and Woodley (2018). That book exposed the alarming rate of decline of approximately .4 IQ points per year in places like the UK and the USSA. The primacy of intelligence has been acknowledged more recently: National Intelligence Is More Important for Explaining Country Well-Being than Time Preference and Other Measured Non-Cognitive Traits, Kirkegaard, et al (2020).
The dystopian trend in the USSA was most recently expounded upon at the BPEA Spring Conference, March 25, 2021, and a paper authored by Caroline Hoxby, Advanced Cognitive Skill Deserts in the U.S.: Their Likely Causes and Implications. Check out the map at that linked summary and see if you’re in a cognitive skill desert.
In Advanced cognitive skill deserts in the U.S.: Their likely causes and implications, Caroline M. Hoxby of Stanford University maps county-level data from standardized tests to show which regions have higher percentages of adults and children with advanced skills and which areas have lower percentages. She compares data for adults, 12th graders, 8th graders, 5th graders, and 3rd graders and finds that regional patterns, evident among adults, only begin to emerge by 8th grade and are similar to adults by 12th grade.
I’ve noted more than once that children trapped in failed government schools, and that’s ninety percent of USian children, demonstrate, via systemic standardized tests, a decrease in mathematical ability proportionate to their tenure in the so-called schools. Proficiency scores fall from elementary school to middle school to high school. The schools literally dumb the kids down, in terms of cognitive application, to the level of the average USian adult. That is exactly what Hoxby found. That is exactly what the “schools” were designed to accomplish. It’s a feature, not a flaw.
Of course, math, while last in the acronym, is the first and foremost building block of the STEM idol everyone claims to adore these days. Without it, there is no science or engineering, no advanced modern systems or convenient technologies. These are the numerically centered of the advanced skills Hoxby is concerned with. She focused on the middle school years, finding these to be the time of greatest development potential for higher-order reasoning, logical expression, abstract thinking, and critical inspection. Few if any of those subjects are taught, embraced, or even tolerated in today’s failed government schools. No foundation is laid and the “age of opportunity” in middle school is wasted.
Hoxby found that – surprise, surprise – larger, higher-tech cities which attract more capable adults also generally have better advanced-thinking scores among the children of those adults. There is also the inescapable pattern of more advanced thinking in the northern parts of the USSA compared with the relative dearth of advanced cognition in the south.
Still, she remains optimistic, reasoning that as with a geographic desert the mental deserts only require watering, the right water being increased spending. That is noble and, to a small degree, plausible, but it misses the larger causative factor – changing demographics. To put this bluntly, as seen on the map, locations with higher intelligence tend to have populations with higher concentrations of Europeans (and Asians). Areas with higher numbers of other peoples tend to exhibit lower intelligence averages. This isn’t a coincidence. It’s science, though a kind of science seemingly unwelcome in places where STEM is promoted.
The schools themselves are only partly to blame. They, after all, are products of policy and politics. Their work, good or bad, is tolerated in accordance with the norms of the resident culture. All of it is determined by identity. And since 1965, formerly White Christian European America has changed markedly, morphing into the United States of Multiculturalism. The effect of this change on average intelligence is akin to adding paint thinner to paint – both become thinner, diluted.
In a macro social sense, two things have happened and continue to happen that drive down the average IQ of the USSA. First, intelligent Americans do not reproduce. Native-born citizens of lower intelligence do have children. This is encouraged and in many cases subsidized. Those with higher IQs have few – and increasingly no – children. As the mentally challenged are rewarded, so the intelligent are in a way penalized. An entire society, economy, and the government have come to bear on them, driving them into faithless, work-obsessed, pleasure-obsessed, debt-enslaved, taxed, corporate hedonism that all but forbids the introduction to the world of new, young intelligent people. This domestic evisceration of the cognitive elite is bad enough. However, it is coupled with the second phenomenon, the nearly exclusive importation of lower-IQ foreigners. Paint + thinner = thinner paint. Import the third-world, become the third-world, IQs and all.
For fun, let’s see how this works out in reality. I picked Newton County, Georgia for no reason in particular. Per the 2019 Census estimates, Newton has a population of 111,744. The county’s demographic breakdown is as follows: Black, 47.7%; White, 43.9%; Hispanic, 6.1%; Mixed, 2.2%; Asian, 1.2%; Am. Indian, .5%; Pacific, .1%. These percentages add up to 101.7% … which confirms the government source. I am cognizant of the fact that the 2020 estimates, in advance of the full count, are available as per national percentage increases for Blacks and Hispanics. Newton is likely on the leading curve of those advances. However, I will, for now, ignore those changes and make a slight correction so as to accumulate a realistic 100% total population. Let’s call it 48% Black, 43% White, 7% Hispanic, and 2% Asian/Other.
Now, we play the weighted average IQ game. I’m going to lump Blacks and Hispanics together (55%) at 87 IQ. Because I am not sure of exactly what kind of Asians are prevalent around Covington, I will lump them in with the Whites (45%). The trick is what IQ value to assign the Whites. I suspect they have drifted south of the old Northern European standardized score of 100, most likely assuming the new American White score of 95. I’ll run a simple average with both. I’ll also add in a third, “worst-case” scenario in keeping with the total domestic intelligence decline.
(.55)(87) + (.45)(100) = 92.85 [ouch]
(.55)(87) + (.45)(95) = 90.6 [oh, boy]
(.55)(87) + (.45)(93) = 89.7 [damn]
Ninety is the score no first-world nation wants to dip below as that is the cutoff below which there is no guarantee of continued societal stability. The average of the averages is 91.05. That’s terrible. All of these numbers are terrible. And, in this specific case, as with much of the rest of the country, they are falling steadily.
Where do the children of Newton fall into this matrix? Let’s walk through the placements, shall we? We’ll specifically look at school-aged children, 5-18. The 2019 estimates alott 19.4% of the total population to that bracket or 21,678 individuals. I consulted the 2019 Georgia Department of Education [SIC] stats to confirm those figures and to assess the attendant identitarian breakdown. The Great Hoax has wreaked havoc on 2020-2021 enrollments in GDOE-tracked public schools as might be expected. Back in 2019, however, the enrollment was a fairly similar match: 19,579 students, or 90% of all children 5-18 years of age (the national average)(the remainder being privately schooled, homeschooled, or otherwise unaccounted for).
Pursuant to my previous lumping-normalizing rules, I find the student body is 71% “Black” (13,885) and 29% “White” (5,694). These, by the way, are your future total Census demographics, if lumped and normalized. Taking the middle “95, White” average, we have: (.71)(87) + (.29)(95) = 89.32. It may not be the brightest future.
I’ve looked at more Newton government school performance records than I ever cared to. By and large, they are utter failures, falling somewhere above Detroit and below rural Mexico. Pick one and look at the scores and the trends – low and falling. And, as with most public schools, they fall along the lines of progressively decreasing performance as described by Hoxby.
Newton is part of the vast southeastern intelligence desert. Their collective experience is demonstrative of the larger pattern and picture. More money, even radically more, will not solve this problem (see Detroit). Voting will not solve this problem (see the past 100 years). The problem is not political in nature. Tossing Dr. Seuss, Geo. Washington, and 2+2=4 out the door in favor of more social justice and equity will accomplish nothing. The issue is beyond cultural. It involves an identity changed, a demographic shift.
The new post-American USSA, to the extent and for the time it endures, will not be the end of the world. It will be, is already different. Relatively speaking, it’s parched – like a desert.
Pat Buchanan ponders the meanings of the “Big Floyd” “murder” “trial.” Too many necessary quotations these days…
In preparing for the trial of Chauvin, Minneapolis has fortified, with concrete barriers, fences and razor wire, the courthouse where it will be held. Understandably, for any acquittal of Chauvin, or conviction on a lesser charge than murder, could trigger a riot like those that plagued the city through the summer of 2020.
And if a mob does take to the streets in Minneapolis, as it did all last summer, the national reaction will be telling.
How does one accurately describe a crowd that gathers outside a courthouse to demand, on the threat of a riot, a verdict of guilty?
And should a riot occur — and violent protests in Louisville, Seattle and Portland over the weekend seem to point to another such long hot summer — may we expect our new national leaders (Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer) to denounce the mob and stand up unequivocally for the rule of law?
They’re going to riot, win, lose, or draw. And, of course, there will be no condemnation – unless it’s more hatred of us. Nuremberg Amerika.
The average Amerikan is extraordinarily stupid and gullible. That helps explain why so many have gone along with the hoax and why they want to poison themselves with the hoaxine. Unfortunately, they’re also extremely fat. And, fat, it seems, inhibits hoaxine effectiveness.
It may be because their fat hampers their immune system, which is involved in making antibodies.
Extra weight can cause long-term inflammation, which sabotages the immune system and makes it less able to fight infection.
Obesity, defined as a BMI over 30, has already been shown to be a risk factor for severe Covid and death, prompting health officials to warn the public to drop some pounds.
But the exact reasons have not been clearly explained.
The world may never know.
No word on whether the extra lard lowers the chances of cellular supercharging and targeting for non-hoax viruses in the wild. It could be that these tubbies have eaten themselves into medi-genocide immunity – by accident. They’ll likely fret about that when or if it comes.
So why are those most victimized by this system running into the arms of the same crew of unimaginative, solipsistic sociopaths who have repeatedly wrecked society in the first place? Whether it’s the ‘too-big-to-fail’ banks who asset-stripped the American middle class in 2008, overloading the country’s already fragile social safety net and driving a stake through the heart of the once-achievable American Dream, or the World Economic Forum, a breeding ground for selfish and self-interested corporate hacks who just want to fly their private jets in peace with the option to lecture the ground-bound hoi polloi on their carbon usage, those who’ve put themselves in charge are precisely the wrong ones for the job.
Indeed, the WEF – whose conveniently-timed book Covid 19: The Great Reset surfaced just in time to be seized upon by world governments as a supposedly better-than-nothing playbook for lifting humanity out of a mess even its writers admitted wasn’t nearly as disastrous as it seemed – was the first to claim experimental sovereignty over the poor unfortunates its leaders consigned to misery. Acknowledging they were putting humanity through the largest psychological experiment in history, one which technically violates the Geneva Convention and Nuremberg Code given that informed consent from its experimental test subjects was never obtained, is perhaps the worst possible messiah substitute to lead humanity into a brighter future.
Read the whole thing. Why do Americans put up with all of this? It’s a combination of multiple sins and good, old-fashioned stupidity. A splendid future awaits!
Not too good, if you’re a woman these days. Because of what the “pandemic” did(!) the WSJ notices that the aging cat ladies among us seem a little disenchanted with their cultural life decisions.
Kelli Wheeler always knew she wanted to have children. But in April, her boyfriend broke up with her right as the pandemic set off social-distancing mandates that make dating much more complicated. The 34-year-old decided she would have to rethink her path to motherhood.
“Even if I met a guy quite quickly, I was three or four years away from having kids because I’d want some time where it was just the two of us,” says Ms. Wheeler, a digital-content producer in Los Angeles. “I began looking into ways I could take control of my fertility, without a man.” She booked a consultation at a fertility clinic and plans to freeze her eggs this spring.
Ms. Wheeler is one of many single women in their 30s and 40s who have found themselves reassessing their plans for having children in the past year. The pandemic has both made it harder to meet a partner and provided time for introspection. For some women, that has sparked a realization that they want to prioritize motherhood, regardless of whether they are in a relationship. Plenty of men, of course, have had similar epiphanies, but biology forces women to take action within a more limited window of time.
Wait! I thought biology was just a social construct. JK! I really do feel for these women and the rest of our rapidly decaying society. Maybe the time to have children was around 18 or 20? Married? Maybe we’ve all been lied to for generations. This has been in force long before the Coronahoax drifted in. See this study on the death of the nuclear family in the US.
It must be that mean old “pandemic” and “resulting” economic recession that’s to blame!
Between the 2019-2020 school year and the current year, nationwide enrollment dropped by 110,000 to about 1.6 million students. Back in the 1960s, enrollment was more than 5 million.
With the recent wave of closures, there are now 5,981 Catholic schools in the United States, compared with more than 11,000 in 1970.
Or, it could be something else. 1960s? 1970? What has changed since then? Off the top of my head I can think of the death of the American nation as the predominant culture in the dying US. Then, there’s the decline of a Catholic Church largely beholden to things like Novus Ordo and a fake pope. Really a mystery… Must be the “pandemic.”
Sometimes one wonders if “they” are just trolling us for fun. Marianne Williamson comments on the “soulless” nation of Amerika. I suppose that a Russian Jew turned gospel of prosperity “preacher” turned politi-critter turned pundit might know, as she reveals in this interview with – not making this up – one Krystal Ball. She talks through her crystal ball…
“From a spiritual perspective, in the East they call it karma and in the West they call it cause and effect,” she said. “In a very real way, what’s surprising is that things didn’t get off the rails sooner.”
Williamson told Hill.TV co-host Krystal Ball that the degradation of American society did not begin with President Trump, but has been building over the past few decades.
“Let’s be very clear, things have been off the rails for millions and millions of people in the United States based on bad public policy. Things have been off the rails for millions and millions of people around the world due to American foreign policy,” she said.
“We moved into an ethos, a soulless ethos, with no sense of ethical or moral consideration for Earth or its inhabitants and we made a short-term bottom line for corporate entities,” she added.
Yadda, yadda, get the fascist out of the White House. It does not get any better. Last year, when this light-bringing woman reemerged on the national stage, I thought I remembered her. I did and now I remember why. Decades ago, I read her book of “prayers,” Illuminata. If the title wasn’t off-putting enough, the contents were. While masquerading as a nep-Christian title, the book is a collection of the oddest prayers one might offer, some suited better, I suppose, for the god of this world than the One above it. I tossed it, what, twenty years ago? But, I recall there was a deep, mourning, wailing prayer for the White folks to offer down to Moloch for all the horrible things done to the African-American – the book coming out between the Civil Rights Act and the election of BHO and all. There were more like that. Misguided people read and prayed them. Yes, soulless then as now.
This story about average Amerikan debt loads makes a pound sound like a bargain.
While the average American has $90,460 in debt, this includes all types of consumer debt products, from credit cards to personal loans, mortgages and student debt.
Knowing these trends is important. Along with staying informed about financial planning, reading advice about saving for retirement and learning credit card basics — knowing where you stand can help you decide where to go next on your financial journey.
Here’s the average debt balances by age group:
Gen Z (ages 18 to 23): $9,593
Millennials (ages 24 to 39): $78,396
Gen X (ages 40 to 55): $135,841
Baby boomers (ages 56 to 74): $96,984
Silent generation (ages 75 and above): $40,925
Math time! Let’s deduct 60 million souls from the 330 million folks in the US – to dismiss any Greatest, under-18 Zs, and Post-Zs among us.
$90.460 x 270,000,000 = $24,424,200,000,000 outstanding usury. That’s in the “personal debt” ballpark figure ($20 Tr+) estimated by Ye Old Debt Clock. Either way, think of that as the value being sucked out of ownership and productivity, with all of the vampirism based on fraud and lies. Or, terminating these sinful fake loans would result in an immediate boost to the real economy greater than a standard year’s GDP.
Almost all of them (4,000ish) are worthless.
The stories are becoming tedious at this point. Today, it’s a self-described racist ruining a Linguistics department and #takemathback(to the stone ages):
In the latest sign that the mind of U.S. academia has been hijacked by the left, a professor from the University of California-Santa Barbara described herself “a white American” who is, therefore “by definition racist.”
In a webinar lecture entitled, “Undoing White Supremacy in the Language Disciplines,” Mary Bucholtz, Professor and Chair of the Department of Linguistics at the University of California-Santa Barbara, broke the news to America’s majority white population that white supremacy “is a system that White people have built in order to oppress everyone else.”
Read the whole pathetic thing and then read PCR’s hilarious take on the matter. If you are a young American contemplating college, the seriously reconsider. For a guide to the very few decent schools, consult the ACTA A-list. Be mindful that the criteria are academically-based; schools may have other structural and/or cultural problems; I know three of the “As” do. Again, I recommend Thomas More of NH and Magdalen College, also of NH. (One will note a distinct lack of Hoax adherence at those two). For other options and/or for graduate school, then look to Europe, especially Eastern Europe. Consult the “Polish Option” and similar academic potential in GET OUT!
