So you agree that it is not race that makes the difference, good.
Civilization was built by the whip. Over essentially our lifetimes the whip went out of use, and there will be consequences. One is an incredible loss for boys. Boys are in the main rambunctious. A certain portion of boys simply cannot be kept in order with attempted shaming and reasoning. While many lament the supposed mental effects a whipping will have on a boy, it ought to be rather obvious that five minutes of crying and an hour pouting is less injurious to a boy compared to the loss of his pre-school and likely most of the years of his elementary education.
Considerable evidence also supports the claim that boys learn better from men, and girls from women, but the Anglo education system is in the area of plus 80% women teachers. Boys organize their social spaces differently, it is inclusive but hierarchical: think of a football team with its captain and fat kid goal keeper, girls however are cliquey and exclusive. Women teachers inevitably create female social spaces where boys have difficulty functioning. The urban classroom has no space for wrestling and roughhousing which is natural to boys, instead it suits girls who are typically more reticent and less physical... I digress.
I also expect that you agree with me that the Sahara Desert had a very inhibiting effect on the transmission of cognitive structures and civilizational technologies from Eurasia into Black Africa. ...
No idea what a 'cognitive structure' is
You ought to be a smart person if you've been running this forum for ten years. So...
Did you try Google for cognitive structures? http://www.ascd.org/publications/books/ ... atter.aspx
Did you try Google Scholar for cognitive structures? https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/BF01178747
and care to give an example of these 'civilizational technologies'?
The whip --
Civilization was built with the whip. As we have already discussed, the discovery of animal training, particularly with the horse, led to the understanding of how we could train ourselves. As Nietzsche put it in Beyond good and evil
, "almost everything we call higher culture‘ is based on the spiritualization and intensification of cruelty".
Blacks have overall not gotten so much of the whip and are proportionately that much less civilizationally advanced. (And that much less neurotic if you want to look at the silver lining.)
You may even agree that the fundamental problem might be viewed as the unquenchable need for the economy to forever keep expanding: through colonization, and when thwarted, mass (im)migration; with the general solution being sustainable economy.
Lebensraum eh! Might have known.
No actually. You can't see what I'm saying in plain English because you can't stop projecting your Nazi straw men, you're locked into an ideological lens where you see Nazis everywhere and can no longer hear what others are even saying. Godwin's law used to be a joke, now it's the first and only argument anyone's got.
Where you and I differ very sharply in our thinking, to return to something you've stated two times in this discussion, is that while you are a materialist and imperialist (Marxist); my position is the opposite: I believe in an idealist interpretation of history: our history unfolds because of psychological reasons: you might say the Byzantines collapsed because they lost at Manzikert, I would say a malaise had overcome the society and hence they lost at Manzikert. You expect your Western culture to overrun the world, and every foreigner in your country to conform to your liberal way of living, I'm willing to live and let live and allow others to have their unique identities and live in their traditional ways.
