Impossible to Emerge

Dysgenics is the study of factors producing the accumulation and perpetuation of defective or disadvantageous genes and traits in offspring of a particular population or species. The adjective "dysgenic" is the antonym of "eugenic". It was first used by David Starr Jordan, describing the supposed dysgenic effects of World War I. Jordan believed that healthy men were as likely to die in modern warfare as anyone else, and that war killed only the physically healthy men of the populace whilst preserving the disabled at home . Richard Lynn in his Dysgenics: Genetic Deterioration in Modern Populations (1996) identified three main concerns: deterioration in health, in intelligence, and in conscientiousness. Peter Hitchens and the death of Britain in the First World War –


In the late modern era, equality rapidly became the dominant value in human societies almost everywhere. This was partly due to the rise of new ideologies like humanism, liberalism and socialism. But it was also due to the industrial revolution, which made the masses more important than ever before. Industrial economies relied on masses of common workers, while industrial armies relied on masses of common soldiers. Governments in both democracies and dictatorships invested heavily in the health, education and welfare of the masses, because they needed millions of healthy labourers to work in the factories, and millions of loyal soldiers to serve in the armies. Now, as we enter the post-industrial world, the masses are becoming redundant. The best armies no longer rely on millions of ordinary recruits, but rather on a relatively small number of highly professional soldiers using very high-tech kit and autonomous drones, robots and cyber-worms. Already today, most people are militari

Justiça Social

A visão cristã de que o homem nasceria imperfeito, mas poderia e deveria buscar pessoalmente a perfeição foi primeiramente questionada e depois trocada pela visão romântica de que o homem nascia naturalmente bom, mas era corrompido e transformado em mau por viver numa sociedade má. ( Theodore Dalrymple )  Nos finais de 1960 alguns intelectuais marxistas franceses foram ainda mais longe. Derrotadas as suas ideias na União Soviética, desviaram o foco das classes trabalhadoras para as divisões étnicas da sociedade, criando assim o cultural-marxismo. Mais uma vez, o mesmo não procura a igualdade de oportunidades, mas sim a igualdade de resultados. Como Noam Chomsky formulou: A engenharia social do Estado-providência procura anular a meritocracia, processo em que o conhecimento e a capacidade técnica conferem poder; a mesma é vista como uma ideologia egoísta de uma elite meritocrática que como Marx explicou, "define as condições especiais da sua emancipação como as únicas condi

The great person is ahead of their time, the smart make something out of it, and the blockhead, sets themselves against it.   (Jean Baudrillard) White men have become an "endangered species" at the top of British business, according to Tesco chairman John Allan. Speaking to a business conference, Mr Allan said: "For a thousand years men have got most of these jobs. The pendulum has swung very significantly the other way and will do for the foreseeable future. If you are a white male, tough. You are an endangered species and you are going to have to work twice as hard. If you are female and from an ethnic background and preferably both, then you are in an extremely propitious period," he added. A former senior executive at Infosys has accused Indian software major Infosys of a racist bias that favours Indian techies over others. While roughly 1% of the US population is of the South Asian race and national origin, roughly 93%-94% of Infosys's Unit
