Brett Bellmore on Students Not Learning; Getting Propagandized Instead. I don't want to see it called "STEAM" unless it's because you have to study steam tables. They do still make engineering majors do that, right?
Big Bill on Students Not Learning; Getting Propagandized Instead. It is not "STEM" anymore, but "STEAM". STEAM stands for STEM + Arts. The lefties are starting to panic and don't want to be "left behind" so they have cobbled together a new term that is "more inclusive". You are going to see "STEAM" more and more.

An interesting perspective from what sounds like a salty old dog. I think he's absolutely correct. I know an electrician whose killing it.
another fred on Why Did Rome Fall? Not Enough Taxes? Too Many People?. Rome was tottering long before it fell. I think they just ran out of low-hanging fruit. The glory of Rome was based on conquest and the looting of accumulated wealth produced by generations that preceded it. That static accumulated wealth could be recycled in the economy for many years creating

MyappsforPC on Employment Declines For Native Americans. Thanks for sharing the info
Lot on Why Did Rome Fall? Not Enough Taxes? Too Many People?. Here's an article about one of the worst periods of Roman civil war: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crisis_of_the_Third_Century 49 years of basically non-stop multi-front civil wars. The Constantine dynasty that came after was more successful, but they murdered and fought with one another too pretty often.
Lot on Why Did Rome Fall? Not Enough Taxes? Too Many People?. Romans did not have elite overproduction. The elite birthrate was below replacement, but the population of elites was augmented by the meritocratic rise of pleb families. The elites also killed each other in high numbers. The main reason for the decline and fall of the empire was endless civil wars,
James Bowery on Turning Away From Democracy. I managed to get the following critique of the notion that we have a rough approximation of "democracy" -- representative or not -- past the "moderators" in response to a TED talk. "A step away from democracy" presumes proximity to "democracy". http://www.ted.com/talks/jonathan_tepperman_the_risky_politics_of_progress According to this Gallup history of polls, the
Seth W. on Why Did Rome Fall? Not Enough Taxes? Too Many People?. Romans also became sick with lead poisoning.
jb on Why Did Rome Fall? Not Enough Taxes? Too Many People?. Rome didn't merely "decline" it had its ass handed to it by various mostly German tribes. The empire near the end had a population of about 70 million people but could only raise and pay for a military of about 750,000 (estimates vary), not much more than 1% mobilization. In
Jim on Students Not Learning; Getting Propagandized Instead. Bob Sykes - You also mentioned self-discipline and it may be that that filter combines with the IQ filter to reduce the percentage of STEM capable graduates to 5-10%.
Jim on Students Not Learning; Getting Propagandized Instead. Bob Sykes - Probably considerably higher than 5-10%. Linda Gottfredson's data indicates that an IQ level of about 115 is required for a STEM degree. That is about 16% of the US population so I would think the percentage of college students with the intellectual capability to get a STEM
bob sykes on Students Not Learning; Getting Propagandized Instead. Only about 5%, certainly less than 10%, of college students have the intellectual ability and self discipline to pursue a degree in STEM. The other 90 to 95 have to put up with indoctrination. Unfortunately, a majority will not be smart enough to recognize that they are in a reeducation
Brett Bellmore on Students Not Learning; Getting Propagandized Instead. I would say we need an institution like monasteries, to preserve real learning. But the problem is, the liberals aren't content to conquer most institutions, and then let conservatives have some refuge. They want everything. Create alternate institutions, and the liberals will move Heaven and Earth to take them over.
chris on Students Not Learning; Getting Propagandized Instead. Don't just retreat from institutions. Defund and disempower those institutions as well.
Jim on Why Did Rome Fall? Not Enough Taxes? Too Many People?. tanabear - There was hardly anything "Roman" about the Western Roman Empire in it's last stages. By then the "Roman" army was mostly composed of Visigoths and other barbarians. Even the generals were mostly latinized Germans. Real power was exercised, not by the official Emperor, but by barbarian chieftains and
tanabear on Why Did Rome Fall? Not Enough Taxes? Too Many People?. The decline and fall of the Roman Republic is what mattered, not the Empire. The Empire was just this huge monstrosity that was erected to preserve and extend the culture and civilization of the Republic for as long as possible. 'From the accession of Augustus to the death of Theodosius
Seth W. on If President Hillary Clinton Then More Foreign Interventions. If Hillary Clinton presient we're screwed. If Donald Trump president we're screwed. Basically, we're screwed.
Seth W. on Hourly Worker Hours Becoming Less Predictable. Great. That means humans will have a better quality of life. We just have to make wage earning more attractive and studying more equally accessible to everybody.
Seth W. on Why Did Rome Fall? Not Enough Taxes? Too Many People?. Exactly. Politicians are parasites and if parasites exeed a critical mass the body of society starts to get sick. The problem today is that we the working society have an overpopulation of elite parasites who do nothing but live off the budget and lobbying, which is nothing but bribing.
Jim on Why Did Rome Fall? Not Enough Taxes? Too Many People?. Joseph Tainter's "The Collapse of Complex Cultures" has an extensive discussion of the collapse of the Western Roman Empire. One tax dynamic that he mentions is that a given area was supposed to produce so much in the way of taxes which was allocated to landowners on the basis of
another fred on Hourly Worker Hours Becoming Less Predictable. I think this is far more serious than most people do. The probability of plagues getting loose amongst us is rising, especially man-made ones, and the allotment of medicines and care will be a major issue when they do. People who contribute nothing to the maintenance of society will not
Brett Bellmore on Turning Away From Democracy. The thing is, they're not genetically determined to be parasites. Culturally, maybe, and their fairly recent ancestors were not living a parasitical lifestyle. This implies that their children, too, can be productive citizens, if removed from the situation that created this dependence. Of course, turning people into parasites works with
Engineer-Poet on Turning Away From Democracy. The urban welfare hordes are not viable on their own. They are obligate parasites so long as they remain in the USA. They and their patrons must and will fight any attempt to disengage from them, the former for their goodies, the latter for the political power they get from
Black Death on If President Hillary Clinton Then More Foreign Interventions. Jim - Great minds do indeed think alike. I almost included that fact in my post. Thanks for mentioning it. Not only Lenin, but Stalin and Trotsky were surprised by the fanatical resistance to the Soviet invasion by the Polish "workers and peasants." Look at this (from WIKI): Stalin returned
Jim on If President Hillary Clinton Then More Foreign Interventions. Black Death - During the 1920 Polish-Soviet War Lenin was apparently genuinely surprised that Polish workers and peasants did not welcome and join the Soviet Army but instead fought fiercely against it. This story illustrates the remarkable tendency of left-wing intellectuals to self-delusion.
Black Death on If President Hillary Clinton Then More Foreign Interventions. The comparison of liberal-neocon-interventionism-imperialism with Soviet expansionism is a good one. Both promoted world views that proved incorrect (class struggle proletarianism vs. making the world safe for democracy). The mixture of traditional Russian imperialism with messianic communist internationalism proved a toxic brew indeed. But as the Soviets discovered to their
Brett Bellmore on Turning Away From Democracy. The problem with splitting up, is that it's not an east-west, or north-south, divide. It's more of an urban center vs everywhere else divide. How does the aggregate split up from the cement? The Revolutionary war saw the losing side migrate to Canada over a period of time. (Yes, there
JB on If President Hillary Clinton Then More Foreign Interventions. neoconservativesí goals in liberal-interventionist terms Neo-Conservative goals have always been cast in liberal interventionist terms. So, for that matter, have virtually all Western war efforts since, oh, WW2 - the 1960s. Liberal imperialism it has been called. Since those Liberal beliefs are unworkable the war efforts have mostly been failures.
bob sykes on If President Hillary Clinton Then More Foreign Interventions. Hilary Clinton has been at the center of all the aggressive interventions and invasions the US has committed since Serbia. These interventions have accomplished nothing, and they have left Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, Eastern Europe and the Balkans in chaos. Hundreds of thousands of civilians have been killed
Glengarry on Turning Away From Democracy. The elites would prefer to wring out the white middle classes rather than leaving such an asset untouched, but I think the net result will be some sort of breakup. At some point, the middle class will have had enough. What are the various options then? Splitting into separate societies,
