Jordan Peterson at one minute seven seconds:
“We know how to put a box around the extremists on the right. Basically we say ‘oh, you’re making claims of ethnic or racial superiority. You’re not part of the conversation any more….I mean, I think the fundamental criteria for drawing boundaries around the right are claims of racial or ethnic superiority. That seems to me to be the place where conservatism degenerates into something approximating ethno-nationalism fascism. It’s something like that.”
Then at one minute thirty eight seconds, Jordan Peterson contradicts himself:
“I.Q. is a particularly ugly aspect of science because the I.Q., the I.Q. literature reveals that which no one would want to be the case. Which is that there are profound and virtually irremediable differences in people’s cognitive performance. And that those differences have a very, a very solid biological and heritable basis. No one wants to hear that. They don’t want to hear that it’s biological. They don’t want to hear that it’s heritable. They don’t want to hear it’s permanent. They don’t want to hear that it’s irremediable. And that it actually has a practical consequence. And no wonder they don’t want to hear it.”
My comment on Professor Peterson’s comments: He’s a very good, very moral man. He is also in a real pickle, because he knows much of the real truth, how complex it is. He knows how this I.Q. information will be used and twisted to support bogus notions of “racial superiority” by some people. Having many Jewish friends, he knows the history of Jewish-German ethnic conflict based on ethnic differences and he doesn’t want to encourage lines of thought that might lead back to that Nazi horror show. At the same time: He also knows racial and ethnic difference are real, in intelligence. He said so. There is a conflict there, obviously.
Professor Peterson was sitting on the stage with Gad Saad, who is a personal friend of Jordan Peterson. Gad Saad is Jewish and a very fine human being in my opinion. Here’s the trouble: In academia, in higher income, in banking and finance, in total wealth, Jews are vastly over-represented in wealth and influence. Not a myth, just a fact that must be explained. As it turns out, northern European Jewish IQ is the highest in the world of any ethnic group, by a significant amount. My view is, this is biological, based on some genetic flukes in the Ashkenazim population. That’s what is behind Jews making a lot of money and being so dominant in higher education. Obviously ethnic and racial difference in I.Q. are behind Jewish wealth and influence, but no one wants to admit that, in light of the history of ethnic conflict. Jews have been over-represented in wealth and influence in America, for a long time. At the same time, Jews were victims in Nazi Germany, the Germans wanted to eliminate them from the world.
That’s a real pickle, leading many decent people like Professor Peterson to avoid speaking the truth, basically lying about this. This BPS video calls out that lie. Professor Peterson keeps telling everyone to speak the truth. I agree. That’s what I’m doing here. I humbly suggest the good Professor take his own advice and do the same.
I’ll admit my own personal bias, from the start: I’ve had Jewish friends in the past and am quite fond of their culture.
…..You see the trouble here, for Professor Peterson? Admitting the truth about I.Q. means playing into the hands of the antisemitic people, who claim Jews run the world. That’s hard to do for a man with so many Jewish friends….who have I.Q. Privilege. Admitting the truth about I.Q. means playing into the hands of the racists who hate black people, because the same data that shows that Jews have very high I.Q.s also shows that the black population has the lowest overall IQ of any race. Admitting all this, even though it is obviously true, would cause a social storm which could last decades or longer.
However, that’s all the wrong way to look at it. What I mean by that is, although the data shows the truth about the differences in I.Q., just suppressing the information will lead to pain and suffering. Jordan Peterson thinks he is avoiding suffering, by suppressing the implications of the data, by being dishonest. He’s not. Being honest about the data will mean humans will be on the path to less suffering and better lives for all people of all races.
My philosophical view is based on the data: I don’t believe in the so-called “superiority” of one group over another. I never did. But what I do believe is that humans vary in many ways, including individual and group differences in intelligence. It’s not a simple thing, it’s a complex story we must talk about. For instance: The variance among humans within groups is an awful lot larger than the variations between groups. That’s one reason racism is stupid. However, those between groups must be understood because they have profound implications for lessening human suffering and pursuing a peaceful and prosperous future for all humans.
Why being honest about IQ is important:
Africa’s population is exploding. …with dire consequences for an increase in human suffering, this century. If we are honest about IQ, we can minimize human suffering. Lying about IQ leads to human suffering.
Here’s my case:
What we need to understand about explosive African immigration, is it’s essentially the white man’s fault. We can only understand and fix the problem of human suffering by understanding this.
Here’s how I came to that conclusion:
The population of Africa is booming. By the end of this century, there will be 4.5 Billion Africans….a huge increase. They will live in a very poor continent, while Europe will be rich. They know how to get to Europe, so they will try. Poor people would rather live in rich countries. Why would that surprise anyone?
But be honest. Ask yourself: Why did this population boom happen?
There never used to be so many Africans on Earth, a few decades ago. The UN chart is clear about that. Where did they come from? There used to be a lot more Europeans, than Africans. The chart also says that. Soon there will be far, far more Africans than Europeans. The chart says that. Question: How did this happen?
A one word answer is sufficient to grasp the essential answer: science
Science….which was invented by European whites, caused the population boom in Africa. Don’t blame the Africans for that. Don’t blame the Jews either. They generally came in, later in the game, to the science game. They made big contributions now, but it wasn’t always that way. Most of science was invented by white European Christians….not Jews. We Europeans invented 97% of science and technology and medicine. This allowed black Africans to multiply, as per above graph ….and we are barely at the start of their population explosion. We whites created science, so we created this mess. Without our science, nature would have culled most Africans out, long ago. So my point is, in the big picture of history, we Europeans are about to over run in Europe in the coming decades, by black and brown humans fleeing poverty, due to something we did. We better change this, if we hope to save our own necks. It’s going to happen because of something we did: we created science.
Another accompanying problem that makes the African population boom much worse for us, is average IQ scores, which are much lower in Africa, than the rest of the world. They are low enough that I don’t think Africans are, as a group, on their own, bright enough to adapt to the modern world, to run modern economies, educate their people to the point where their populations can naturally drop, due to rising education levels….as is the common pattern in other ethnic groups.
Here’s a comparison that brings home that truth: The population is shrinking in China and East Asia…very very fast. Why? The IQ there is much higher in China, than Africa. Because Orientals are very smart, they adapt to the modern world quickly, their women educate in a hurry, and the best predictor of falling population is: educated women. Jordan Peterson knows the truth full well: The largest economic expansion and increase in wealth and decrease in poverty in human history, it happened in China in the past few decades. The reason for those changes was the introduction of capitalism, combined with the fact the Chinese are quite clever. Their cleverness meant they are getting rich, the women get educated and stop having so many babies. This all decreases human population numbers. It does so naturally. This education/population decrease tandem duo was possible among white women, it was possible among East Asian women, but it’s not possible among black Africans. Why not? Their average IQ is holding them back. They are not adapting quickly to the modern world, as did the Chinese, Koreans and Japanese….who are much smarter. It takes smart people to build a modern economy. The essential problem: There is a shortage of smart people in Africa. There are not enough smart people in the African population, for a modern economy to boom, for education to increase and population to decline quickly. Average IQ variation is a phenomena of nature, Africans didn’t ask for this. We better start getting real about racial differences, which Jordan Peterson alluded to, because if we don’t, we can’t stop this coming demographic disaster. Whites will be the victims of this, unless we change. Time to pull our heads out of the sand.
Professor Peterson would likely agree with most of what I am writing. Trouble is, he won’t speak the truth. Classic Liberals like Peterson are afraid of this, for obvious and very moral reasons. What he is afraid of, is that this knowledge empowers the bad people. That’s the wrong way of looking at it. The proper way to look at it is, the good people better start speaking out, or the bad people will take this information and use it for evil. Trouble is, the good people like Peterson are wrong. They know the truth about all this. Hiding this under the rug will lead to human suffering. It’s immoral. Only by facing the ugly truth, can we find a compassionate way forward.
So when anyone starts talking about Europe being overrun by immigrants, it will mostly be from Africa, as that continent descends into chaos this century, from over-population and soil erosion and environmental disasters. It’s easy to blame the Jews or liberals or communists for Europe being over run by Africans, but the truth is, these billions of African people would not even exist, if it were not for the white man inventing science. It’s our fault. Plus, Africans are our fellow human beings, worthy of respect. It’s not their fault the white man invented science, making their lives possible. We need to be humane but honest, about this mess. We religious people of all faiths need to stand up for the equal worth of all humans, while accepting we are not all the same. That is the compassionate and practical way forward. How to do this?
First we need to fix immigration:
We are doing exactly the opposite of what we need to do to fix it. Our immigration policy strips away from Africa, the very smartest people on that continent. For example, President Obama’s dad was the top scholar in all of Kenya….a very smart man, regardless of race. He moved to the United States and Americans benefited by having one more very smart immigrant. Who lost in this deal? Africa….lost one of their most capable people. Africa cannot afford to lose it’s most valuable citizens. Most liberals think it is “kind” and “humane” to support immigration to Europe, from Africa……No, it’s not. No, it’s not kind. It’s cruel. Immigration from Third world to advanced nations is not, not, not, being kind. It is instead, being cruel. We need to stop that cruelty. It’s like taking $5 from a man who only has $6…..cruel… there are few people more stupid and cruel, than a “compassionate” liberal or feminist or communist, who push for Open Borders, for massive Third World immigration. They think they are doing the world a favor by pushing current immigration policies. The truth is they are pushing policies that will lead to a race war.
Even smart and moral people like Sam Harris have fallen for this fake compassion. To me, racism is about hate, it’s not about facts. Racism is about attitude, not facts. Sam Harris is not a racist, but he is deluded about facts. Sam Harris is a good man, in my opinion. Sam doesn’t hate anyone, he just has his facts wrong. I don’t hate anyone based on skin color, nor do I think I am “better” than anyone just because I’m white. But I do think there are racial variations in nature, racial variations in things like IQ, which have significant implications for morality and human progress.
Our immigration pattern needs to be completely reversed:
The answer to me to this mess, seems obvious: massive immigration of whites and East Asians….INTO Africa. This would provide Africa the “smart fraction” of people necessary to run a modern economy, educate the people to the degree possible, thus naturally driving down the birth rate, as African women get educated and their economies develop. On their own, this will never happen. Already in Africa we can see this pattern can work in specific places. There is a great natural experiment afoot in Africa. There are places in Africa with pockets of high IQ people. In those places, Africa develops very quickly. For example: There are many places in Africa where the Chinese are present, doing massive projects and business. They have a lot of capable people in the Chinese population. Chinese are, in my opinion, the best natural businessmen in the world. That’s something the Africans lack, which they need if they wish to economically compete with the world. Chinese should be encouraged to settle in Africa, to develop it, as should whites. Another example: South Africa has about 9% whites in their population, and they have modern infrastructure, telecommunications and run nuclear power plants. This could never happen, if the population was entirely black. Not a chance. It’s the whites who build all this, run all this. We need to stop liberal nonsense of denying evolution, pretending there are no differences between the races. It’s all a lie and everyone knows this. Jordan Peterson knew all this, decades ago. Due to political correctness, the fear everyone has of “offending” anyone with the truth, he shrinks away from obvious observations a bright 12 year old could figure out. The outcome of this sort of moral cowardice is future pain and suffering for the world. This kind of self delusion and bullshit will get this planet destroyed and Europe over run with billions of Africans in a bloody civil war. We need to avoid that. It starts with honesty and free speech.
Racial trade-offs can benefit both populations. I’m a lifetime basketball and jazz fan and have benefited from Afro-American athletic and musical genius, for decades. They have enriched American lives and made America what it is. I welcome my black brothers, as a vital part of American culture. But I have no delusions that black people on their own could have come up with a modern technological civilization. They didn’t evolve for it. That likely has to do with obvious things like, the weather is nice in many places in Africa. A few years ago I was playing basketball with a black friend of mine. I had just beat him at a video game which required complex math pattern recognition. We went outside and he easily beat me badly at basketball, as I flailed around like Al Gore…..
People are good at different things. That’s pretty obvious. That simple fact is a lot of implications we need to start being honest about.
Africans need good and safe places to live….among their own, in their own continent. Whites and East Asians living in Africa as minorities should have self-contained communities within their own gates, secured so they have happy safe lives. The whites and East Asians should work with black Africans, but always have safe places in communities of people that look like them….if that is their choice. Others like myself will chose to live in mixed communities.
Yes, I’m calling for immigration plus segregation….INTO AFRICA. Humans are going the wrong way. Current immigration patterns are exactly backwards. The human people are coming to Europe. Bad idea. That’s the wrong direction for human survival. Humans should leave Europe and China and move to Africa, not the other way around. Humans need to move TO AFRICA…not Europe. In that vision of the future, Africa works….for all races, especially it works for black Africans.
I’m sure the black Mother in South Africa, who teaches her child to read at night, by an electric light bulb, she is grateful the white man invented light bulbs and electric power plants.
Africans need help. Help them or they will over run Europe….leaving whites as a tiny minority….the “New Jews”
I’ve been to Africa when I was young. I fell in love with the place, it’s people. I loved it, loved it’s people. I could have spent my life there. I certainly thought about it. Many ex-pats have great lives there. It’s a big beautiful continent. I still dream of Africa.
Self contained white and East Asian communities would help make Africa a great place for black Africans that they would not want to leave. That’s the key: building up Africa so they don’t want to leave. Then the black Africans could generally avoid immigration to Europe. That would be a sensible way to avoid demographic and environmental disaster, but that path is only possible if we are both honest and compassionate. Currently we are dishonest and pretend we are compassionate. Lies are never really compassionate.
If black Africans could live good lives in Africa, that would be their strong choice. Make no mistake about it: Africans don’t want to be white. They are very proud and love their own people, their own home, the most by far. They don’t need to live among whites who look down on them. Due to poverty, they are having to make a choice they don’t really want: to leave their beloved home and their people, to move to Europe. We need to make the choice of staying home easy for them. If they got enough help, through enough immigration of smart people into their African countries, then with enough science and technology, they could have great lives in Africa….avoiding a very ugly race war with Europe, which seems inevitable to me, if we continue down our current self deluded, stupid, science denying, evolution denying path.
You don’t need to be white, to be an American. You don’t need to be black, to be African. I once went to hear Jane Goodal speak. If there is one thing Africa needs, it’s a lot more Jane Goodals. She grew up in England, but spend her entire adult life in Africa. So she is as thoroughly African as it gets. She loves the place with a very deep love. We need a lot more Jane Goodals in Africa, a lot fewer hateful racists. The key to Africa’s future, if it is to be good, if for us Europeans to start being honest and kind. The lies about race need to stop. The hate about race has to stop. It’s sad that the people who hate are the only ones telling the truth. The people without hate, are now the liars. That’s a sad strange thing, that doesn’t have to be. We can win by being kind. And honest. We can keep Europe white, by being kind and having a good plan for Africa. We can help Africans build a good future for their children, by being kind and honest.
