Political Censorship in Sweden: The Elusive Hitler Biography

Censorship can be carried out in a heavy-handed manner, which is all-too-obvious and yields you a bad reputation on the world stage. A much more subtle approach is underhanded censorship. Here is what recently happened in lovely Sweden when I wanted to get my hands on Joachim Fest’s Hitler biography. Let me start by reminding… Continue reading Political Censorship in Sweden: The Elusive Hitler Biography

Book Review: “Cognitive Capitalism: Human Capital and the Wellbeing of Nations” by Heiner Rindermann

Heiner Rindermann is one of the few social scientists that is not a staunch lefty. His research focuses on the not politically correct topic of intelligence. If you have ever looked into studies on IQ differences between nations or ethnicities, you may have come across his work. As I have read about a handful of… Continue reading Book Review: “Cognitive Capitalism: Human Capital and the Wellbeing of Nations” by Heiner Rindermann

The Decline of Collective Intelligence in Germany: Frankfurt Airport

I am currently reading the book Cognitive Capitalism: Human Capital and the Wellbeing of Nations by Heiner Rindermann, which is a tour de force through the topic of differences in intelligence, as measured by IQ, in a global context. One of the more interesting points he raised is that there are countries where a supposedly… Continue reading The Decline of Collective Intelligence in Germany: Frankfurt Airport

“Technology that is used by all should be created by all”

Among the many morally bankrupt phrases used by the subversive Left is the claim that technology that is used by all should also be created by all. This is the supposed justification for discriminating against white males and Asians in the technology sector. Instead of the most qualified employee, companies are now supposed to pick… Continue reading “Technology that is used by all should be created by all”

How “Progressives” Took the Punch out of the Words Rape, Hate, and Nazis

The incompetency if not downright stupidity of “progressives” is a never-ending source of entertainment. I think many of their leading talking heads are prime examples of the Dunning-Kruger effect. The relevant part is that if you are dumb, you do not know that you are dumb. On the other hand, looking at their behaviors as… Continue reading How “Progressives” Took the Punch out of the Words Rape, Hate, and Nazis

Death Wish (1974) and Death Wish (2018) as timely critical social commentary

A few weeks ago I came across a review of Death Wish (2018). Its author was highly displeased with the “toxic masculinity” on display and the message it sends. In short, Bruce Willis plays a doctor who had his wife killed by lowlives, and his daughter ends up in a coma. Afterwards, he goes on… Continue reading Death Wish (1974) and Death Wish (2018) as timely critical social commentary

Thoughts on Jordan Peterson (V): The Jewish Question

Despite my criticism of Jordan Peterson, I used to view him, in general, more in a positive than a negative light. This has flipped now, due to his poorly written and deliberately misleading post “On the so-called ‘Jewish Question’”, which exhibits shoddy reasoning and can be debunked very easily. I will cut Jordan Peterson a… Continue reading Thoughts on Jordan Peterson (V): The Jewish Question

Thoughts on Jordan Peterson (IV): Jordan Peterson is the False Prophet of the Fatherless Generation

It is time for another entry in my series on Jordan Peterson. This will be a relatively damning piece, but it is much more targeted towards his followers than Jordan Peterson himself. Also, I should probably state that I think highly of Jordan Peterson, despite my awareness of his flaws. I found his lectures on… Continue reading Thoughts on Jordan Peterson (IV): Jordan Peterson is the False Prophet of the Fatherless Generation
