Sentences (#75)

Khan (who has a way with words):

For various ideological reasons there is an idea in some parts of the academy that Asian Americans are not a “model minority.”

(They vote funny, but that should be stopped for other reasons.)

    Everyone is dancing around the recognition that diversity does not work. They insist that humans are identical. They justify this with the assumption of universalism, which begins with the belief that humans think exactly the same way despite different origins and abilities.

    Universalism is socially correct, and a big winner among large groups, but no analysis suggests it is in any way accurate.

    yeah well heres my reply to Khan

    what do you mean when you use the word racism? ” -This is not to say that Asian Americans have not, and do not, experience racism.”

    You of all people cant seriously be implying that race doesnt exist so are you saying noticing differences is evil? or are you saying [in an article about asian high acheivment] that assertions are made that are both derogatory and untrue? Like asians are stupid and violent? because really what sense of that stupid word could a geneticists possibly mean.

    Maybe youre playing the leftist conflation game and using it to strategically assault americans who are asserting their own interests in their own country as opposed to say the massive influx nay invasion by foreigners of all kinds, An objection that has at least dozens of quite legitimate reasons without dragging racism into it ,whatever that word is supposed to mean besides, ‘white people bad’ when they dont give every thing away to others without a peep.”

    Or are you dragging up what ? the japanese internment?They fucking sneak attacked us. the fact that working class American’s were not thrilled with cheap chinese labor in the 1800? maybe you mean that american blacks resent Korean’s? seriously Khan WTF do you mean?

    Ill tell you what I see, despite being privileged by white Americans with social trust as equals and ‘ideal immigrants” like the jews, Asians have turned on white Americans in the exact same way.
    They have joined the minority victim bandwagon, they have joined the deconstruction of western civilization project in media politics and the academy, they now vote liberal, they steal secrets for their ethnic home countries sometimes like the jews a generation or two removed from that country, They under assimilate and continue to see themselves as vaguely superior, yet victims, they despite using a higher IQ when its convenient want to be excused from the AA givebacks to blacks and Hispanics they enforce as part of the libewral elite on whites . Like the jews, Asians are famous race realists wayyyy more prejudiced against blacks and Hispanics than whites, way more willing to exploit them as employees.
    Forgive me Khan if i dont feel your pain, heres a suggestion if you don’t like it here get the hell out and go back to your shite hole homeland cuck

    There’s nothing wrong with his IQ and Intelligence – a mere trait – is overrated.

    The Asians have shown their true colors as it were, you’re no more our friends then the rest and probably less than the [whatever they may be] American Blacks. Blacks are despite their worst efforts quite American. This problem we can work out.

    Asians voting for Obama was straight racism against Whites – so much for business interests. Indeed that final cruel cut of ingratitude was for many the final stab that broke the Progressive spell.

    In the long run unchecked Asian immigration may be the most dangerous of all, you’re Jews without the tortured conscience.

    If you want America Mr. Khan et al you can pay the same blood price we did to take it from us. As an ancient culture you understand exactly what I mean.

    On the other hand if you want to become American as others have the door may still be open. The time of games and cheating however is ending.

    Decide and soon, good luck and good day.

    VXXC i see it as kind of worse than racism, [frankly Im not insecure racially so i give zero fucks who hates me in fact i take it as a compliment]
    But this,It looks to me like it was a very calculated move of aggression, in fact its short term against their economic interests but long term strategy positioning for dispossion. The jews i can forgive in the sense some average may misguidedly conflate the Americans who liberated them from the camps with the nazis that put them in after all all us round eyes look alike.

    Mike,

    Yes. The Asians will cheerfully and without blinking dispossess us of everything and given the opportunity let us either starve to death or even kill us all and sleep soundly.

    The Jews of course DON’T sleep soundly over what some of them are doing, and Mike is right that they just can’t seem to get it in their heads we’re not Nazi’s.

    Every word that comes out of a grad student’s mouth is suspect. Putting bread on their table entails hardening their ego to align with the doctrines and initiatives of what the cooler ones among us call “the Machine”.

    Schopenhauer says it happens to philosophy professors–imagine how thoroughly and subcutaneously it affects all the little peons of academia:

    “It never occurs to a professor of philosophy to examine a new system to see whether it is true; but he at once tests it merely to see whether it can be brought into harmony with the doctrines of established religion, with government plans, and with the prevailing views of the times. After all this he decides its fate… If there is to be philosophy at all, that is to say, if it is to be granted to the human mind to devote its loftiest and noblest powers to incomparably the weightiest of all problems, then this can successfully happen only when philosophy is withdrawn from all state influence.” – Wait, this could be said about NL and the New Centre for Reification and Praxis. Abandon ship! Abandon ship!

    RE: Patchwork. How are we going to prevent patches from “unofficially” being in cahoots with one another at the expense of the consumer? For instance, just look at corporations today. If product-X costs fifty cents to make what’s stopping all the Patches from selling it for $49, $50, and $51? “Wow, product-X costs $51 at your Patch, I’m so privileged to get product-X for $49 on my Patch.”

    Without some centralized “Patchwork Administrator” I don’t see how the Patchwork system wouldn’t lapse into corruption. And *with* a Patchwork Administrator I don’t see how the Patchwork system would still be a Patchwork system.

    Michael Rothblatt Reply:

    Problem with the whole Neocameral government-as-bossiness thing is that actual businesses don’t have monopoly on violence. Patches don’t need to be in cahoots with one another, they can simply ban exit from their patch and then fleece the subjects.

    its even more mundane reality is hardly anyone ever moves no matter how smart or haow good they know it is in the next state, lots of reasons for this. so patchwork is serfdom 2.0, but hey they dont hide this they brag about about the neo fief which is why its so absurd a bunch of pajamma boy nerds are going to take me and VXXC into vassalage LMAOROTF

    michael, once, vauung told Spandrell “before mass starvation people will trade (almost?) anything, and even accept previously unacceptable ideological revisions. At what point do people starve themselves into an approximation of common sense? (Some time before they perish, I’m guessing.)”

    Or at least technically–hypothetically–certain demographics, the “socialist” and “rabble-rouser” demographics for instance, can be ‘alien-ated’ from all patches except one in which these RR’s carry out the role of servant. This would be called something like “the gulag patch”–or w/e it would need to be called in accordance with Patchwork’s Official History of Soviet Russia, etc.

    Yes but that rational voting puts them out of business here…and they’re small business owners.

    You may not be aware that regulation is like kudzu here and small businesses can’t keep up with the burden.

    They’re human too.

    well then jews and asians are not so smart, because it was clear by 78 when Redgrave gave her oscar speech, and irving satirized the left that it was not going to end any better for Jews or asians.There was soon an inflection point in leftism asians and jews not only because of the outsized influence but because of their status as minorities, and the lie that status gave the narrative, could have flipped the script at that point, and justly shared ruling status.That would have been in their interest.Instead they doubled down on leftism.The question is were they too stupid to see the long game; like capitalists so often do went for the short money?Or are they betting on an even longer game, where whites are utterly dispossessed and they survive inherit?

    ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
    Writing in his 1978 autobiography, The Scientist, Lilly describes the SSE this way:

    “[M]en began to conceive of new computers having an intelligence far greater than that of man… Gradually, man turned more and more problems of his own society, his own maintenance, and his own survival over to these machines. They began to construct their own components, their own connections, and the interrelations between their various sub-computers… The machines became increasingly integrated with one another and more and more independent of Man’s control.” (p. 148)

    The time period Lilly is describing is roughly similar to our present. Relatively dumb forms of artificial intelligence and networked robots are taking over most of the manufacturing, maintenance, and logistical components of our society. Experts project that over the next four years alone, 7 million jobs worldwide will be “lost” to these systems.

    Lilly continues to describe his vision of the future:

    “In deference to Man, certain protected sites were set aside for the human species. The SSE controlled the sites and did not allow any of the human species outside these reservations. This work was completed by the end of the 21st century. By 2100, man existed only in domed, protected cities in which his own special atmosphere was maintained by the solid state entity. Provision of water and food and the processing of wastes from these cities were taken care of by the SSE.” (p. 149)

    If this sounds unlikely, remember that UN proposals like Agenda 21 and America 2050 have similar goals to depopulate rural areas of the country in favor of ‘mega-cities,’ protecting biodiversity and enabling governments to control resources.

    woot, never knew Land and Lilly had so much in common.

    My comment from Razib’s column–The only consistent trait that I have noticed across all Asian groups is their conformity to whatever they see as the dominant narrative or power group. But they retain their ethnicity, and will even hold conversations in their native languages in front of english speakers, which would normally be considered rude….So one would expect them to favor the Democrats and that part of the liberal Narrative that doesn’t harm them, and to block vote for their own. And they do all three, in my experience.

  • SanguineEmpiricist Says:

    itt people who’ve never seen white people and asian people perfectly coexist.

    Chinese people seem only provisionally political, even apolitical and merely respond to the incentive and ideological structure of the civilization they are in. Is this due to the evolutionary effect of confucianism? Where it was just that you trust your family and they trust their head, and they trust the head of that organization/affiliation? Therefore reducing the need for any individual to be political, as it was just trusted things would be handled.

    This has led to them being an interesting political group, in that they are roughly uninterested in politics in any natural form, only dealing with the situation at hand with the rough incentive/philosophical structure of the society at hand and being ‘colored’ that way. They can really move around the political axis if it was easy to imagine that they would be better served with other politics.

    I love them. Glad Khan is defending asian americans. Everyone who’s not a retard knows vietnamese, cambodians, laos, and hmong, underperform academically, we all have our ethnic variances, and this does not refute the idea that other asian groups are high performing.

    Lol. News at 11. Every one else was already filled in.

    loving them as an an interestiing and admirable civilization a trading partner is one thing giving them your house keys passwords is quite another. They are quite civilized they are not another high trust open civilization we are at a disadvantage when they are in our countries as citizens and they have higher IQs and get a pass on the white mans burden. This doesnt end any better than the JQ.in fact it gives the jews an ally just what we fucking need.
    On of the problems for minorities particularly underachieving minorities [blacks browns] in a multicultural society is besides not being selected for the foreign environment they can not even develop coping strategies tailored to their own strengths [say stricter discipline in school] that might help them compete a bit better in a mixed society because , well that would imply all men are not created equal.Europeans are not the smartest race but we are the most successful, i dont think its a fluke i think we have other traits that give us an edge over even more intelligent races. That edge begins to disappear when we have to modify our environment to accommodate others.off the top of my stupid head i would say high trust and the high trust society feedback loop might be one of these traits, when we can no longer utilize this because well out new friends are not as trustworthy it may come down to IQ only.There are other things we build things invent things seem to be more freely imaginative, i dont see jews and asians doing that only copying, thats an advantage in technology that one only keeps by maintaining that first mover status, but in this game where we are multicultural and they are Mossad and and PRC the information only flows one way at the speed of light through an undersea cable.
    So when a intellectual movement that purports to understand HBD goes all open borders you got to wonder are they stupid or crazy like a fox?

    We have to allow space for Blacks [under civilized rules that will have to be imposed] and the American Indians. We owe nothing else to nobody.
