Audacious epigone on Arab Spring Made Tunisia Biggest Source Of ISIS Fighters.    Who does this royal "we" refer to? I think I know the answer to both your question and mine.

WCN on Arab Spring Made Tunisia Biggest Source Of ISIS Fighters.    We need to see "diversity" fail a little more before we admit it

Wolf-Dog on Arab Spring Made Tunisia Biggest Source Of ISIS Fighters.    Our inability to contain the "situation" is due to our dependence on foreign oil.

Dan on Arab Spring Made Tunisia Biggest Source Of ISIS Fighters.    "Can we admit that all the world's peoples are not compatible with each other and that good borders are like good fences and separate people with incompatible belief systems?" > No, we will admit no such thing. Besides, don't you find the slight but nonzero risk that you will suddenly

Stephen on Libya: Caliphate Cities, 2 Parliaments, Islamists.    Hi Randall, this 20 minute podcast from the BBC might be of interest to you. It analyses the history of the caliphate as an Islamic concept and give a framework for comprehending the stuff happening in that part of the world. Here's the blurb: What is a caliphate? What ideals

Audacious epigone on Peter The Great Stole Russia's Name From Ukraine?.    Vladimir stole it from the Byzantines, the Byzantines stole it from the Romans, and the Romans stole it from the Trojans.

Matt@Occidentalism.org on Mainland Chinese Buying Big In Arcadia California.    It's taken a long time but I have come around to your viewpoint in the last two years, Randall. There can be no national survival, only personal survival. The funny thing is that this is what our elites have been practicing on us for the last five decades without telling

Big Bill on Murder Rate In South Africa Still Rising.    Forget the SA murder rate. What is the SA white murder rate? That is the future we face in America when the EBT runs out. Worse, what is the murder clearance rate? In our enriched American cities the clearance rate is around 20%. Four out of five murderers get away

destructure on Peter The Great Stole Russia's Name From Ukraine?.    "What else is going on with stolen names and belief systems we ought to seek to remedy?" Greece wants to deny the Macedonians their name to cover up the land grab and ethnic cleansing from last century.

destructure on Do You Live In A Bubble? Take The Quiz.    I started pretty far down the totem pole and climbed several classes. Financially, at least. You never really outgrow the class you grew up in. Scored 58.

GM on Greg Cochran On Ebola: Our Leaders Are Nuts.    To be fair, Dawkins has come to realise nowadays that -- to paraphrase both him and you -- the end of the Christian meme monoculture has simply led to the flourishing of both long-suppressed memes and of memes contracted from diverse other cultures. That's why his name is now anathema

Gerard on Peter The Great Stole Russia's Name From Ukraine?.    So the Russians are now to be blamed for being forcibly converted by a Ukrainian prince? You really didn't think that one through.

GM on Murder Rate In South Africa Still Rising.    Malthus, there are plenty of Indians in Africa. They were shipped there by the British Empire to do the kind of lowly clerical jobs that it would have been too expensive to ship out people from Britain to do. Yes, a kind of unholy colonialist [and I *never* use that

Arcadia Resident on Mainland Chinese Buying Big In Arcadia California.    It's not a matter of whether or not there already were Chinese students. The percentage of Asians is clearly on the rise. That will have an effect on the quality of schools. Yes, but it's not that quite that clearcut. The quality of the school depends heavily on the quality

James Bowery on Greg Cochran On Ebola: Our Leaders Are Nuts.    They don't need to come up with a good cover story. The moral zeitgeist is, contrary to Dawkins's adulations, filled with more nutty religious zealotry than the the worst of Dawkins's whipping boys. The moral zeitgeist will fry the biosphere -- despite all its environmentalist proclamations -- rather than practice

Black Death on Murder Rate In South Africa Still Rising.    Homicide rates contain a large racial component. The overall US rate is about 4.8. However, blacks commit about 53% of all US homicides. Black males murder about 10-20 times more often than wihie males, depending on the source of statistics (Federal data tend to count most Hispanics as "white"). The

Mike Street Station on Greg Cochran On Ebola: Our Leaders Are Nuts.    The administration's various explanations on why we have to keep the doors wide open to Ebola infected countries have never made sense. It was an obvious question that was going to be asked, and they should have had a reasonable answer prepared if they think it's so important that infected

Arcadia Resident on Mainland Chinese Buying Big In Arcadia California.    You can bet the safety and course quality of the local high school will rise. Actually, no, I'd bet the quality of Arcadia High School will fall relative to other schools in the area, such as Temple City High School. Arcadia High School has been majority Asian for a long

Robert Holland on Mainland Chinese Buying Big In Arcadia California.    Uh...OK, so what?

malthus_be_gone on Murder Rate In South Africa Still Rising.    The easiest way to help the most people and reduce violence, while minimizing our involvement, is to allow Indians and Chinese to move to Africa. It'll reduce poverty and crime, and require nothing but time.

Nick on Murder Rate In South Africa Still Rising.    Here's the Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_intentional_homicide_rate The first 100+ countries with the highest murder rate make it onto my anti-vacation list. One more reason I'm enjoying living in Poland, the murder rate is 1.2 per 100,000. I love how they calculate the "global murder rate", wait while I go hang my

Nathan C on Inevitable World Population Explosion.    I predict that what will happen is that these groups will grow exponentially, but be preventing by force from becoming the majority. Our current live and let live attitude will be the exception and not the rule. Look at the Amish. White, fast breeding, religious, traditionalist, pacifist, they are pretty

James Bowery on Greg Cochran On Ebola: Our Leaders Are Nuts.    As I noted in "The Ebola Epidemiology They Won't Talk About" if you think the average number of personal contacts as proportional to a first order approximation of R0, and that therefore the R0 is below 1, you're fooling yourself. The ratio of the variance in the number of contacts

Randall Parker on Inevitable World Population Explosion.    Guys, If a group can maintain high fertility while living in a highly industrialized society (and several groups can) then their doubling rates will eventually swamp the groups with low fertility and the high fertility groups will become the majority. At that point population explodes. It takes a religion that

James Bowery on Inevitable World Population Explosion.    Civilization is dysgenic. That's why its social control mechanisms called "mass religions" always offer eternal life: To take people's minds off of the genetic damage being done by civilization's selective pressures. Transhumanism is merely the latest although it does at least deliver on part of its promise when it keeps

malthus_be_gone on Inevitable World Population Explosion.    I don't see this problem arriving. Technological advancements are accelerating more rapidly, while population growth seems to be decelerating. Vertical farming & infinite energy will be part of our post-scarcity society. Low IQ groups that want to populate will be limited to certain territories, while higher IQ groups will urbanize

destructure on Inevitable World Population Explosion.    Fertility rates aren't evenly distributed. The fertility problem in under developed countries is that people are having too many children. The fertility problem in developed countries is that people aren't having enough children. In particular, smart people aren't having enough children. Developed countries can't solve that by restricting their own

Daniel H on Inevitable World Population Explosion.    >>The real problem is declining economic activity in declining, older populations. Old people buy less and produce less..... That's a problem for bankers, politicians and guru economists, not the for the rest of us.

sestamibi on Inevitable World Population Explosion.    I don't think a population "explosion" is in the works. Fertility rates for even the groups cited have fallen too. What matters is how those compare with all others, and from what I can see they will still be the last ones standing--and that's all that REALLY matters.

Sultana Joly on Iraqis Prepare For All Out War Once US Withdraws.    I suppose someone has to occupy those two huge military bases constructed at a cost of several billion dollars. Also Iraq is not the problem in the region. The problem is the US, Saudi and Israeli presence and influence. And Obama has the power to do exactly what his corporate

bob sykes on Inevitable World Population Explosion.    For the last 40 or 50 years, the world's population has been following the UN's low projection. This is the one with the realistic demographic parameters like below replacement-level fertility in most of the world. This projection still predicts some additional growth because the world's age distribution is skewed young.

Cookie on Locking A Car With A Short Horn Blast Is Rude And Obnoxious.    Happened on this site while looking for a louder horn for my motorcycle and curiosity got me reading all the comments... The obnoxiously loud horn for my motorcycle(which will most likely be 120+db) I will be getting for safety since most drivers don't pay any attention on the road nowadays.

Jimbo on Inevitable World Population Explosion.    A little targeted genetic engineering that sterilizes a quarter or a third of humanity would do fine. No suffering. No pain. All the fornication you want. Just no kids. Put it in the water or food of some of the more troublesome places. No birth defects that would need taking

WCN on Do You Live In A Bubble? Take The Quiz.    I've covered a lot of bases in my life. Score: 65

Stephen on Do You Live In A Bubble? Take The Quiz.    That's a great CV. Looking back, do you think that having broad and varied experience marked you down or up in terms of the jobs market? I don't know how old you are, but assuming 40+, what would you tell your 18yo self?
