Profound and truthful.

Democrats are importing a replacement population.

These people, whether under 120 or not, hit my filter for criminal and perverse.

On a side note, racial antagonism is high enough that we're going to see 1992 or 1967 again...

People are squeamish. Imagine that we found another earth and sent all the under-120s there. Which planet would be thriving in 200 years?

A few dozen acres converted to piranha ponds could take care of this problem fairly quickly.

The earth's carrying capacity is about a billion, if we also want to have wildlife. We should pick the billion smartest, and then get rid of the dishonest, criminal, perverse, etc.

At the same time we do this, we should find people who are doing good things, and encourage them to do more of them and breed more.

That's the only way out of the hole that humanity's in. If we don't change our path, doom awaits.

Most people are too cowardly to change and fear change, so they're going to complain any time someone offers a solution.

In the long term - ultimately better, I'd say. A more intelligent humanity overall would lead to greater achievements, smarter people, and a generally better planet.

It's hard to argue against increasing human intelligence, or reduced population. The two seem to connect in that a group of fewer but smarter people makes for a better nation than many dumber ones. Finland or California?

Short-term consequences are a disadvantage. I'm sure that nuclear plants would be OK because their engineers are over-120s. Heaps of bodies can be managed, especially since they will be mostly localized in cities.

Binney, the former technical director of the agency's World Geopolitical and Military Analysis Reporting Group, told Democracy Now hosts Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez that Stellar Wind, the NSA wiretapping program begun in the wake of 9/11, still has unprecedented access to private domestic communications.

When Goodman asked if the government currently has copies of all emails sent by U.S. citizens within the United States (at 46:05 in the video clip), Binney replied, "I believe they have most of them, yes."

According to Binney, the NSA receives around 320 million domestic communication records daily from telecom firms like AT&T. "They had to be given retroactive immunity for the crimes they were committing," he explained (at 50:40), referring to the U.S. Senate's decision in 2008 to reject several prominent lawsuits against internet and phone companies that were handing over customer data to the U.S. government.

If you were a government with the power to filter all email for patterns of communication, wouldn't you?

You'll get blamed if you don't and something goes wrong.

At that point, economics takes over. And is this a bad thing?

Perhaps not: we don't really have an expectation of privacy with email or other public acts.

A culture of entitlement: if we are equal, I deserve good things just for being me.

Quote
Not only was my students’ writing appalling, but I soon encountered their resentment at being told about it. “Who are you to tell me I can’t write?” was the attitude — once expressed in those very words. More than one student insisted that her other teachers had always rewarded her with high marks for her “creativity.” Most believed themselves more than competent. After sitting with one young woman explaining the cause of her failing grade, I was befuddled when her only response was a sullen: “This doesn’t exactly make me feel good.” When I responded that my job was not to make her feel good, she stood haughtily, picked up her paper with an air of injury, and left my office without another word. In her mind, I later realized, I had been unforgivably cruel.

I was up against it: the attitude of entitlement rampant amongst university students and nurtured by the utopian ideology that permeates modern pedagogy, in which the imposition of rules and identification of errors are thought to limit student creativity and the fostering of a hollow self-esteem takes precedence over the building of skills on which genuine self-respect might be established. In the Humanities subjects in particular — and in English especially, the discipline I know best — such a philosophy has led to a perilous watering down of course content, with self-validation seen as more important than the mastery of specific knowledge.

With this philosophy has come a steady grade inflation. The majority of students in English courses today can expect a B grade or higher merely for warming a seat and handing in assignments on time.

You either reward greatness, or reward non-greatness. Whatever you reward, you get more of.

People claim they like natural selection, then act against it by insisting that everyone is equal.

Americans are deeply divided by race over the killing of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, with 91 percent of African-Americans saying he was unjustly killed, while just 35 percent of whites thought so, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Thursday.

Fifty-nine percent of Hispanics believe that Martin was unjustly killed six weeks ago, according to the online poll of 1,922 Americans, conducted Monday through Thursday.

In a sign of how riveted Americans have been by the case, 93 percent of those surveyed said they were aware of the shooting, which set off heated debates over race, gun control and crime.

The media sheep are shocked that people cheer for their own teams.

But why shouldn't they? Those teams support their own values, both those in culture and those encoded in DNA.

A coalition of groups supporting immigrants has recruited teams of volunteers to help push programs they hope will add thousands of new U.S. citizens to the voter rolls in several states in time for the November presidential election.

The national push comes after Democratic President Barack Obama has failed to deliver on promised immigration reforms in his first years in office and his likely opponent, Mitt Romney, adopted harsh rhetoric on illegal immigration to win support from conservatives while campaigning for the GOP nomination.

Different groups are trying to use these people like chess pieces.

The Democrats want more voters. (Non-whites almost all vote Democratic.)

The Republicans are often swayed by industry, which wants more cheap labor and consumers.

Very few seem to be thinking about the effects of what they do, only the "value" of what they do...

Interzone / Blank cheque

The report, This Sceptred Isle, shows that only 61 per cent of the English said they associated the St George’s Cross with pride and patriotism, compared to 84 per cent of Scots and 86 per cent of Welsh, when asked about, respectively, the St Andrew’s Cross and the Red Dragon.

Almost a quarter (24 per cent), of the English said they considered their flag to be racist, compared to 10 per cent of Scots and seven per cent of Welsh, when asked about their own flags.

The report blames the “extreme street hooligans of the English Defence League” for “toxifying” the St George’s Cross, although it says politicians should also take responsibility for failing to “speak up for the inclusive patriotism of the English majority”.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/9217620/St-Georges-flag-is-a-racist-symbol-says-a-quarter-of-the-English.html

Certain things represent blank cheques in this society: unequal rights, civil rights, gender rights.

I don't see these debates as being about their putative topics. Instead, they're about fragmentation in the name of the individual.

Your average person, unless non-white, doesn't give a shit about racism.

What they do want is no oversight, government handouts, and "equal validity" so they can do whatever they want without consequences, and with social subsidy.

Ie. Is ANUS for nihilists anymore?

This is now a death metal forum.

It is for nihilists; however, nihilist tends to mean something other than what most people seem to want it to mean.

What we have here are many people who are lost: humanists, materialists, consumerists, socialists, progressives, dualists, etc. All of those beliefs are not compatible with nihilism.

Moving posts in order to ignore them? You can keep doing and doing this, but you have too much working pending in order to answer the objections to your question. Nothing personal, not a complaint, really, but it's neccesary to point that you aren't answering as you should.

Quit wrecking threads with your whining. And "should"? What are you, Jesus?

The college class of 2012 is in for a rude welcome to the world of work.

A weak labor market already has left half of young college graduates either jobless or underemployed in positions that don't fully use their skills and knowledge.

Young adults with bachelor's degrees are increasingly scraping by in lower-wage jobs — waiter or waitress, bartender, retail clerk or receptionist, for example — and that's confounding their hopes a degree would pay off despite higher tuition and mounting student loans.

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/1-2-graduates-jobless-underemployed-140300522.html

They are getting screwed, and they have nothing to complain about.

Their elders sold them college as a chance to a better life. That created a vast horde of people who want to go to college; on top of that, affirmative action, inclusion of the mentally retarded, and teaching of propaganda have made high school education worthless.

Thus college was also dumbed down.

Now everyone who scores above a 105 on an IQ test can go to "college," which has made college degrees near-worthless. Graduate education, certification and job experience are now required.

Until you get those, you're just chattel. But you're educated(tm).

This is why there is nothing to complain about: the people wanted more education and better jobs, and by all climbing into that boat, they sunk it lower into the water. Now they take on more debt for less reward.

They would have been better off just strengthening a high-school education. Of course, that would have meant norming it to a 110 IQ instead of a 90 as it is now. That's racist/sexist/who knows what.

Russian naval deputy chief of staff Rear Admiral Leonid Sukhanov announced here on Sunday the official start of the joint exercise with the Chinese navy.

Ding Yiping, deputy commander of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) Navy, delivered exercise tasks.

This marks the first naval drill between China and Russia, following four military exercises involving the two nations since 2005.

http://english.people.com.cn/90883/7794713.html

The old alliances are still there. Russia-China form an axis, with various Comintern projects in the third world.

Then there's the "free world," which is much more socialist since 1937, and very confused.

Some of those form coalitions like NATO, whose goal is to prevent Russian invasion of Europe (again).

Others are struggling to form alliances that will last the century. India, Brazil, Africa...

Why are people afraid to answer this question?

If all people under 120 IQ points died tomorrow, would life be better or worse?

Seems it should be simple, for nihilists or death metal fans.

TRUE.

Then again, post-black and nu-kvlt (not speaking of a band belonging to anyone in this conversation) are the same thing: imitations of the past.

Hence there's not really much except insincerity. You can ape the past in form, but, where's the content? That's what made it great.

New generations still wait to find a new voice, and they're fucking up by trying to find a new one, including the 1990s.

You have got to get eternal....
