Taleb extolls value of middle eastern society and defends inbreeding:

Mesopotamia

Invented Metallurgy, Agriculture, Writing, Sailing, the Wheel, Chemisty, Pharma, Astronomy, LAW,(co)algebra, Algor, Calendar, Maps, Metrics…

Maintained techno superiority for 4600/5000y of history.

So fraudster @stefanmolyneux now arbiter of their inferior “IQ”.

This inbreading/cousin marriage theory is another crackpot by IQ-genes-race pple who NEED to find genetic (not cultural) degradation.

First effect of inbreeding is systematic diseases. & you see MORE among Ashkenazis so stop the IQ link & crank-science.

Gregory Cochran reviews population genetic principles for Taleb:
Common deleterious recessives: info for Taleb.
Most deleterious mutations are rare, haven’t been around for long. If you marry your first cousin, the odds of a kid being a homozygote for some such go way up, since the cousin has a fair chance of sharing that rare mutation. On the other hand, if the mutation is common in your population, due to chance or selection, your children have a noticeable risk for being homozygotes even when you and your mate are not closely related. In other words, Tay-Sachs in Ashkenazi Jews is not a product of inbreeding.
Since the average person has many rare deleterious mutations, with effects ranging from lethal to being a little subpar, children of such consanguineous unions have a spectrum of problems, ranging instant death ( rare) to ” not very healthy”, not so rare. On average, kids of first cousins seem to have have about twice as many serious genetic problems, average about 5 iq points lower & 0.7 cm shorter.
Where is inbreeding a problem? Much of the Moslem world.

Vox: “Louis C.K. and Aziz Ansari have an opportunity for redemption. They’re squandering it.”
https://www.vox.com/2019/1/9/18172273/louis-ck-comeback-parkland-aziz-ansari-metoo

Fellow comedian Aziz Ansari has followed a similar trajectory. He once decried sexual harassment in his act — and addressed the issue in a nuanced way on his show Master of None. But in 2017, a woman told the website Babe.net that he had pressured her for sex — Ansari said he had believed everything that happened between them was “completely consensual,” and that he was “surprised and concerned” by her account. After the incident, his comedy took on a different tone: In a fall 2018 appearance, he made fun of online debates about cultural appropriation and complained that nowadays, “everyone weighs in on everything,” according to the New Yorker.

The bigotry in C.K.’s set is disturbing, especially coming from someone who seemed at one time to have a relatively clear understanding of how power works in America. But what is also striking about C.K. and Ansari’s post-#MeToo material is its banality. Before they were publicly accused, these men wrestled with thorny questions of identity and power in ways that, while not always satisfying, were usually thought-provoking. After the allegations, they began parroting tired complaints about political correctness.

Trump suggests he will declare a state of emergency to build wall:

Asked if he would make such a declaration, an action that would likely face legal challenges, Mr. Trump said: “If this doesn’t work out, probably I will do it. I would almost say definitely.”

Steve Sailer tweets on Nixon vs JFK:


The 1960 election was informative in that it matched Nixon with his 143 IQ and work ethic but not much else going for him, against JFK with his 119 IQ but good looks, wealth, family connections, beautiful wife, wit, and media bias.

The race turned out to be virtually a tie.

Cochran explains that genetic diversity does not imply highest performance at extremes:


Well, David Reich is mistaken in that. What matters is the distribution of alleles influencing the trait in question. Thoroughbreds, for example, have limited genetic diversity. Effective pop size is only 100. Other breeds have more – but Thoroughbreds are the fastest.
