Wolf-Dog on Ross Douthat Asks: Is Putin Winning?. RP: "My guess is the CS/EE ratio will rise. More software design and less hardware design." // ------------------------------------------------------------------------ The CS/EE ratio itself might rise, but this does not mean that EE will not grow dramatically. In the future new applied physics based computer paradigms will emerge. In addition to regular
Wolf-Dog on Beheadings And Sex Slaves As Recruiting Tools. "The FBI acknowledges that it has active investigations of Islamic extremists under way in all 50 states." //-------------------------------------------------------------------------- On the bright side, Facebook and extremist immigration keep FBI agents employed, and their jobs secure. But seriously, I don't have a Facebook account.
Dr. Doom on When Each US County Hit Peak Median Income. Ah yes, the robot revolution. Tell me Dr. Stupid, who maintains these robots? If these moronic fake elites knew anything about technology, would they be bringing in Brown slaves? Robots need a Civilization to work in or they break down and rust into the landscape. If you say the robots
Randall Parker on Ross Douthat Asks: Is Putin Winning?. @chris, On second thought: I would choose CS with Physics and or Math. Either of them will give you quantitative skills to help with the CS. Then add in ML. EE: Not so much. My guess is the CS/EE ratio will rise. More software design and less hardware design.
Randall Parker on Ross Douthat Asks: Is Putin Winning?. @chris, Computer science with a math minor. Throw in an masters degree in machine learning and you would be in excellent shape.
Bob Foster on Samuel P. Huntington Comes Out Against Immigration From Mexico. Illegal immigration is a major issue. Thank goodness Trump brought real attention to it. This country wastes too much time and energy on issues that are not nearly as important. Priorities people please! The 2% gay tail should not be wagging the illegal alien dog. Illegal immigration affects the entire
Bob Foster on Consanguinity prevents Middle Eastern political development. I must be missing something because it seems obvious to me the mother-child relationship is one where the free rider problem isnít a problem (within a certain range of probability) so itís adaptive for a mother to be self-sacrificing (up to a point) with their children. So if eve develops
Bob Foster on Locking A Car With A Short Horn Blast Is Rude And Obnoxious. 90% of my horn blasts are intended to avoid a collision, i.e. Ė a collision is imminent without intervention from myself and/or the offending driver and my intent is to alert the other driver. 10% of my horn blasts are directed at people who arenít going to cause a collision,
Mike Street Station on Ross Douthat Asks: Is Putin Winning?. "Iraq and Syria need partition into more viable ethnic states." Exactly right. That's the ultimate solution to the current strife. Unfortunately the arrival of Russia to buck up it's client state of Syria makes negotiations to that end impossible for now. Plus, you would need a US willing to play
Jim on Ross Douthat Asks: Is Putin Winning?. Black Death - There are few if any real democracies in the Middle East. Nore is this likely to be any different in the forseeable future. But more fundamentally virtually all Middle Eastern "countries" are not real nations like Japan whose basis is a strong common sense of identity. Rather

WJ on Why Prison Populations Grew. "Agree, but the Overton window seems to be closing on capital punishment. I'm sure the Supreme Court would like to outlaw it if the esteemed justices could figure out how to get around the fact that it's specifically authorized by the constitution." LOL, you think that document any longer has
bingo on Why Prison Populations Grew. "Catholic priests.....on hand...." Heh.
WJ on Why Prison Populations Grew. The number of incarcerated Americans quadrupled in the 20 years between (roughly) 1984-2004, and yet we're shocked - shocked! - that it was somehow concurrent with a drastic decline in the crime rate. The incarceration rate started leveling off a few years ago and has even begun to fall. Magically
Black Death on Ross Douthat Asks: Is Putin Winning?. Yes, I am highly sympathetic to the great sufferings of the poor Israeli Arab helots, who long for the peace, stability, freedom and civil rights that they would enjoy in such ideal Arab countries as Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Egypt or Libya. How they must suffer, seeing how well their
Jim on Ross Douthat Asks: Is Putin Winning?. Israel is simialr to many countries in history where one people have conquered another but the conquered population remains in a subordinate status. This is similar to Sparta where the conquered population formed the class of helots. It is also similar to Anglo-Saxon England where the conquered Celts lived under
Black Death on Ross Douthat Asks: Is Putin Winning?. @Jim - "Israel isn't that much of a democracy ...." Well, when it comes to voting rights, Israel isn't perfect: 7,659,000 residents of Israel have voting rights, 2,128,000 don't. Those who can't vote are almost always Arabs, about 80% Muslim. Arabs on the West Bank and Gaza can't vote. Arabs
chris on Ross Douthat Asks: Is Putin Winning?. @ Randall Which major do you think would be more useful for a career? Electrical/Electronic Engineering and Physics or Electrical/Electronic Engineering and Computer Science
Jim on Ross Douthat Asks: Is Putin Winning?. To Black Death - Israel isn't that much of a democracy since a large number of the people it rules over have no vote in or say over how they are ruled. Israel has a large population of helots. Also there is no equality of religions in Israel and certainly
Black Death on Ross Douthat Asks: Is Putin Winning?. Completely agree - very insightful post with good links. Douthat isn't bad, but Karlin really gets to the heart of the matter. In fairness to Obama, he inherited this mess from Bush II, but our current Dear Leader has done his best to make matters worse, which seems to be
bob sykes on Ross Douthat Asks: Is Putin Winning?. The chaos in the Middle East, North Africa and Ukraina and the refugee flood in Europe are direct results of American policy. Russia has reacted defensively and opportunistically to the chaos. Now, many members of the Ruling Class and several Presidential candidates are calling for some sort of direct action
Jim on Ross Douthat Asks: Is Putin Winning?. I totally agree. The idea of the Middle East becoming a bunch of Western type democratic nation states is a total fantasy. For that matter actual Western type nation states like Spain and Great Britain may be be begining to split up.

Randall Parker on Why Prison Populations Grew. Joe Walker, There are pedophiles in all populations as far as I know. But the requirement that Catholic priests do not marry certainly changes the sorts of people who choose to become a Catholic priest as compared to, say, an Orthodox priest.
Joe Walker on Why Prison Populations Grew. Quote: "Lots of former Catholic priests would be on hand to give religious communion" Are you saying that there are no pedophiles amongst other religious groups? You really should do some research into the problem of child abuse in the Orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn sometime.
AMac on Beheadings And Sex Slaves As Recruiting Tools. This is the Christian Science Monitor quoting an Islamic State recruiter as he explains his perspective: This grooming takes place during frequent discussions of shared grievances. There is plenty to talk about with ongoing atrocities against Muslim men, women, and children, objections to US intervention in the Mideast, and widespread
Randall Parker on 5 Education Policy Proposals By Education Realist. E-P, I think Seth W. is someone else we know but posting under a new pseudonym. Or he's a friend of someone else we know. Hint: You might recall my asking previous posters where they are posting from.
Randall Parker on 5 Education Policy Proposals By Education Realist. Seth W., The Standard Social Science Model embraced by almost all (overwhelmingly left-wing) academics in social sciences holds that genetics plays very little role in causing differences between humans and social environment causes the bulk of all differences in educational, career, and life achievements. The Tabula Rasa model is pretty
Engineer-Poet on 5 Education Policy Proposals By Education Realist. ok, Brett? or should I say Randall?This clown is delusional; he purports to think that there couldn't be SEVERAL people who take issue with his position, they must all be sock-puppets. A fascinating brief study in either abnormal psychology or propaganda techniques ("disqualify").
Seth W. on 5 Education Policy Proposals By Education Realist. Yeah, yeah, just please don't go out shooting at all those who are left-oriented like me, ok, Brett? or should I say Randall? Who knows, right...? And no, I don't think human nature is infinitely malleable as you assume, and I'm a leftie, so explain that to me. The only
Brett Bellmore on 5 Education Policy Proposals By Education Realist. Tabula rasa refers to the left's assumption that human nature is infinitely malleable, a "blank slate" upon which they can write anything they want. The assumption that E. O. Wilson couldn't have possibly been right about his "Wonderful theory, wrong species." quip, because what sort of species we are has
Engineer-Poet on Why Prison Populations Grew. Is Seth W. a paid operative of the prison-industrial complex, which profits enormously from private prisons and would implode spectacularly if exile islands became a cheaper alternative? Or is he just afraid of being sent to one himself?
Seth W. on Why Prison Populations Grew. This is one of the dumbest posts from Randall yet. And his paladins like Engineer-Poet don't say much either; this funny midget calls my ideas illogical with his little "sarcasm", but he can't come with one of his own. Is this Engineer-Poet, another alias of Randall Parker? Hmm. I wonder.
Seth W. on 5 Education Policy Proposals By Education Realist. The left or Socialism is not tabula rasa, -although the use of the term makes you feel as if you sounded intelligent-. Tabula rasa means that everybody is treated the same and that is dictatorship. A little like the US of A. Socialism has to do with equal rights and
CamelCaseRob on Why Prison Populations Grew. Is Seth W. a SJW making opening salvos at Randall?
Dr. Doom on Why Prison Populations Grew. This is just Gubmint propaganda by Obamas best buddies in the media. Of course, fools like Rand Paul are on board too. Now that the racist black guy is ginning up his race war, he needs to release some soldiers from the Penitentiary System. Bland Rand is going full retard
