A number of my readers have commented to the effect that there are many intelligent, hard-working blacks. Well of course. However, without a discriminating immigration policy, which Ireland emphatically does not, we will receive a block of people who are, on average, going to be a major source of problems for this country, as they are for every other country in Europe. The explanation is largely, but not exclusively, down to different IQ levels. A painful and embarrassing topic, but there are few of greater importance. You can tell that by the fact that we're not allowed to talk about it.
So let's talk about it. The following repeats part of an earlier post on this subject.
The issue of general intelligence is closely related to the concept of Pre-modern Society. While Intelligent Quotient (IQ) tests remain controversial, there is no longer much dispute as to their general capacity to measure certain capabilities, nor that such intelligence is inherited by a factor of between 60% and 70%. The astronomical score achieved by your Savant surely underlines the validity of such tests?Perhaps the best explanation is provided by the psychologist Brigitte Berger, who claims IQ tests measure not so much ‘intelligence’ as what she calls ‘modern consciousness’.
This is the capacity to operate in the highly specialized worlds of modern technology and rationally organized bureaucracies. These core institutions of modern society are produced by, and in turn produce, peculiarly modern cognitive styles: the ability to operate on high levels of abstraction; to break reality down analytically into components; to keep multiple relationships in mind simultaneously; and, especially significant for IQ testing, to relate present tasks to possible future consequences. This last skill, by definition, can be achieved only on the basis of past experiences and habits of thought that individuals acquire during the earliest period of socialization, when a basic matrix of cognition develops.It’s important to realise that even small variances from the norm can have massive ramifications in terms of ‘life performance’.
For example, a randomly selected group of Americans with an average IQ of 103 had a poverty rate 25% lower than a group with an average IQ of 100, and disparities of a similar scale were recorded for high school drop-out rates, social welfare dependency and crime. Research has shown low IQ to be the single most important determinant of these undesirable social outcomes. When we consider the IQ of Afro-Americans is on average 15% lower than that of whites, the implications are alarming. And indeed, these concerns are borne out in reality. Such social conditions are disproportionately present, by a substantial margin, amongst blacks in Western countries – and of course most clearly in Africa. Even many years of affirmative action for African-Americans has had little impact on their relative economic and social status.
In fact affirmative action is now generally seen to have failed.Many factors have been adduced to explain this, including slavery and subjugation in the past, and racist discrimination in more recent times. However, Jews throughout their history have been persecuted, criminalized, marginalized, expelled, forced into certain occupations, and in general suffered every imaginable form of discrimination. Yet, as a group they excel in almost every field of human endeavour, business, science, literature, politics, entertainment to an extent wildly disproportionate to their numbers. Jews (Ashkenazi) have average IQ levels well above that of 'normal' whites (goyim).Africa’s pre-modern social and economic structures have proven to be extremely resilient, and factors such as rapid population growth and mass migrations from rural to urban areas are exacerbating the problems.
The first step in addressing any problem lies in recognizing the nature of that problem. Continuing under the assumptions that Africans are, on average, endowed with exactly the same capabilities as whites, and that parliamentary democracy will emerge with the appropriate levels of assistance, will, lead to more failure and disappointment.This finding also has major implications for Ireland and Europe generally. Given the vast impact of IQ on achievement, you’d expect black immigrants and their children to be at the bottom of the social heap. And of course that’s exactly the case in EVERY country, as anyone can see.
So the rapidly growing black community here, assuming uniform IQ dispersion, will inevitably lead to the same results. Ghettos where high crime, unemployment, welfare dependency and birth rates lead to a downward, self-feeding spiral .Is your humble Savant hopeful? Afraid not. We have watched the permissible range of debate shrink. There are now many subjects on which there is no room for open minds. Political correctness, authoritarian impulses, and the political manipulation of emotions have replaced spirited debates with propaganda. Poor old Inda will be beaten into silence - must keep the masses in the dark.
