  • Re: Help Me learn how to think things through systematically

    The most common problem mistake I see is people not giving criterion or importance to what is relevant and what isn't. It's the tendency to dwell on insignificant details at the expense of the bigger questions. A lot of internet discussion falls in this category.

    I don't think that I have that attitude. You only have a few posts here and you've zeroed in and put a lot of effort analyzing an offhand comment about Jews Molyneux made in a blog in 2005. On what criterion do you believe this to be so important? It's very easy for me to infer that this is because of the very high sensitivity toward criticism

    Why is Molyneux's "stereotype" incorrect? The major psychologists at the turn of the 19th century were almost exclusively Jews. To this day 'dissension and disobedience to authority' are considered disorders in the DSM. Let's not belabor this though. Consider that the treatment of Israeli dissentors on the issue of Palestine

  • Re: Contribution of red and blue states

    I always hear the opposite brought out by lefties to call red states socialist or whatever. Red states are on average larger territories, thus more spending on interstate roads and more military bases which would certainly inflate those figures but are ostensibly beneficial to blue states as well. Blue states overwhelmingly have more people collecting

  • Re: Tribalism, Race, and Anarchy - Can it all work?

    It is a very good argument I think. State nationalism has shown to be a disastrous for the tribe. Mass media unlocked that group instinct where it should never have dwelled. This election is actually very much an ethno-nationalist race. Whites half-hope Romney will slow the discomforting creep of multi-culturalism. Even Maher, half-knowingly I think

    @Aristophanes [quote]You didn't answer the question I asked a while ago. What of the Latino or African countries where their lives basically fit the same patterns? You will owe that to trashy pop culture in America too?[/quote] This point casts serious doubt on your tabula rasa theory. Moreover, if you've actually read Sowell, you'll also

    Why go through the extra effort of programming when you could appeal to innate desires? Research by Baron-Cohen who shows from birth, boys and girls have differerent preferences in toys. Boys skew toward abstract objects, girls toward faces (dolls, fluffy objects). http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=KQ2xrnyH2wQ#t=1283s [quote

    What I'm saying isn't particularly controversial outside the PC hysteria zone. There are already many smart people, many libertarian, who've already tackled this issue like Charles Murray. Here is Hans Hoppe sitting on a panel with Richard Lynn discussing race: http://vimeo.com/12598475
