    Murray is not a racist, howey, fail on the ad hom. You haven't read the Bell Curve, have you?

    That seems to be about it for what you posted, not much at all.

    Try again, do, please.
    I have the Bell Curve and if any of you have questions, let me know.

    How is it possible for one person to get so much completely wrong?

    In a way you did get one thing right. Republics by their nature are anti-democratic. A democracy is a mob. Everything else you wrote is wrong.

    Ditto. It is now on the corner of my desk. I am sure the false narrative will continue.

    I really didn't peg you for a racist; the fact that you believe this guy is appalling. Remember, he's the one who caught flak for trying to link color to intelligence.

    But he does write pretty libertarian prose. That's all you care about @Chris.
    How did you arrive at your conclusions? Have you read The Bell Curve? If so what specifically did you disagree with?

    Who do you think you are kidding, There is not way you are actually going to work, you have way too much invested in blaming others for your failures.

    I'm sure you feel like a Big Shot when you position yourself as above the 99% and take a superior attitude. The economic elitists are counting on every pathetic bootlicking nobody getting a vicarious empowerment by imagining that he is the Lordship's right-hand man.

    Not What You're Told to Think About the Book From Either "Side"

    Everbody, including those who control the feralphiles, knows that the first half is true. So no big deal there. It is a sign of the times that something so obvious has been so suppressed that anyone who tells the self-evident truth is considered to be bold. The Emperor's New Clothes scenario that we're not allowed to apply here.

    I skimmed through the first part because of my contempt for the fact that it needed to be said at all. So I could reject the second part about the Cognitive Elite. Those stunted successes are brainwashed brown-noses or else Murray would have suggested a logical solution: that the money wasted on people who are unfit for education should be spent on paying the talented for their grades. In other words, the solution to throwing good money after bad should be to invest good money in the good.
