Quote note (#154)
Hardcore trolling from Dalrymple:
It is time for positive discrimination in favour of the unintelligent. Why, after all, should the intelligent (give or take a few professional footballers) have all the best incomes? […] It would be easy to bring about social justice in this respect. All we should have to do is administer IQ tests to applicants for well-paid positions and grant those positions to people with IQs of between, say, 80 and 100. There is no need to go to extremes by sacking the intelligent, natural wastage will do. Positive discrimination in favour of the dim will eventually bring about a juster demographic profile of the elite. […] To those who reply that they would not want to be operated on by a stupid surgeon, I can only reply that social justice is social justice, and not good surgery. The achievement of such justice requires that we all be prepared to make sacrifices for it: a botched operation is a small price to pay for the satisfaction of knowing that surgeons are demographically representative of the population as a whole.
