And if you have doubts that @clairlemon caters to and delivers the arguments for a neo-Nazi audience, this is a sample (I got zillions today).— Nassim Nicholas Taleb (@nntaleb) 28 July 2019
Calling neo-Nazis neo-Nazis is accurate:
It all starts with looking for a scientific basic for the degradation of *groups qua groups*. pic.twitter.com/gDljwX2LSz
Skills and intelligence are factors that contribute to the difference. They, of course, don't tell the whole story. For example: family dynamics, nutrition, education, ambition, personal effort, time preferences, religion, etc. also explain some of the group differences. However, intelligence is a core component. It doesn't matter how much hard work a certain Pakistani kid puts in to becoming an astronaut, he won't get there if he can't even pass high school math. Generations of common inbreeding significantly impacts such children.
Comparing the two countries, the average Japanese is significantly more intelligent than the average Pakistani. Look around you. How many products do you see that are "Made in Japan" vs. "Made in Pakistan"? It is what it is.
Yes I know I am rude by calling IQ people imbeciles (which they are). But they are classifying entire populations as idiots. People who already have enough problems.— Nassim Nicholas Taleb (@nntaleb) 27 July 2019
I am going to upset the "Fake free-speech" @Quillette crowd & "Klueeeeless Claire" @clairlemon a bit more.
I don't know why Taleb thinks that a race or country that has a low average IQ must have a population of 100% idiots. Non-White countries have doctors, engineers, scientists, etc. Who the hell even made the claim that all of them are idiots?
